BUILT TO ELEVATE YOUR BUSINESS.

CLASS 4/5

For those who are ready to take the next step in their business, reach for the next rung, expand their capabilities and open up new possibilities, introducing the International® CV™ Series. It's the only class 4/5 truck designed, distributed and supported by a manufacturer that specializes in commercial trucks. This means the largest commercial dealer network with more dedicated truck bays and diesel technicians than anyone else. It's designed for upfitting with a straight frame and a wide range of wheelbase options plus a DriverFirst™-inspired interior with exceptional visibility, excellent maneuverability plus ride-and-handling that's second to none. The CV Series - ready when you are.


NEXT-LEVEL CAPABILITY

The CV™ Series was also tested beyond normal limits to ensure it can keep your business moving in any conditions. We put the CV™ through its paces in Fairbanks, Alaska, in -40-degree weather and tested its endurance on the famous Loveland Pass in Colorado at 12,000 feet. We also grilled the CV™ Series in the desert in Apache, Arizona, where temperatures peaked at 115 degrees Fahrenheit. In the end, the CV™ Series never missed a beat.
