The premier delivery vehicle that is the backbone of the nation’s largest truck fleets, and a versatile model of durable, workaday efficiency, is getting a new nose and front grill that will clearly define it as a Workhorse truck. This exterior face-lift is the latest in a series of significant walk-in changes introduced by Workhorse Custom Chassis, which manufacturers chassis for walk-in trucks, motor homes and buses. Workhorse is a wholly owned subsidiary of International Truck and Engine Corporation, and the grill of the new nose design makes the Workhorse walk-in a clear cousin of International’s models.
