Our Manufacturing

Navistar Defense makes manufacturing flexibility a priority.

With the ability to make real time modifications on production lines, we can be more reactive to urgent requests from the field.

Success Story:

Engineers step up when the road gets rough.

Soldiers have come to rely on our MaxxPro® MRAP vehicles to complete their missions safely. So when troops in Afghanistan faced terrain that was too rough for even our nimble MaxxPro Dash to handle, Navistar Defense put together an elite team of engineers to find a solution.
