International Strength is the core of every vehicle we produce at Navistar Defense.

From our earliest days as International Harvester, we've been a company that innovates. The same can-do spirit that helped Cyrus McCormick revolutionize the farm industry was evident in our groundbreaking 2007 introduction of the International® MaxxPro® MRAP. The life-saving design and incredible speed to delivery has cemented Navistar Defense's reputation and set a new industry standard.

Our experience makes the difference.

Our rich commercial history has given Navistar Defense unmatched expertise in vehicle design, manufacture and support. We’ve been fielding and maintaining rugged, hard working fleets for more than a century, and we’re proud to put those skills to work on behalf of the modern warfighter.

Our History

Navistar has deep roots in the trucking industry.

Founder of Navistar, Cyrus McCormick, built first the mechanical reaper in 1831 and later formed the International Harvester Company, which is presently known as Navistar.

The MaxxPro® Wrecker

The MaxxPro® MRAP Wrecker was the Army’s fastest procured joint urgent operational need (JUON) since WWII.

With the first vehicle rolling off the production line just 19 days after the contract award, the Wrecker helped save the lives of two soldiers who took an IED explosion in the field only two weeks after delivery.

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.
