International LT Series 2018 model year to feature two Truck-Lite components as standard

June 14, 2017
Two Truck-Lite components will be standard equipment: the main mirror, located on the doors of the truck, and custom LED headlights.

Truck-Lite Co., LLC, a worldwide leader in heavy-duty lighting, wire harness and visibility systems, has achieved standard position on the International LT Series, an all-new heavy-duty offering from Navistar.

New for the 2018 model year, the LT Series will feature two Truck-Lite components as standard equipment: the main mirror, located on the doors of the truck, and custom LED headlights. Truck-Lite’s fender mirror, located on the hood of the truck, and halogen headlights will be available as an option.*

"The LT Series from International was designed with drivers in mind," said Craig Watrous, director of product engineering for Truck-Lite. "We're proud that our mirror and lighting systems align with Navistar's vision for safety and visibility."

Mark Johnson, vice president of marketing for International Truck, said the new LT Series "is our most driver-centric truck we've ever delivered to the market and we're excited to partner with suppliers like Truck-Lite who help us build the kind of truck that drivers want to drive."

Both the standard halogen and optional LED lighting systems will be manufactured at Truck-Lite's corporate facility in Falconer, NY.
