Blue Diamond LCF truck coming in 2004

Blue Diamond Truck Co LLC, a joint venture of International Truck & Engine Corp and Ford Motor Co, plans to introduce a low-cab-forward (LCF) Class 3-5 commercial truck in 2004, built entirely at International's factory in Escebedo, Mexico.

The trucks will be built using a new diesel engine developed by International, as well as LCF cabs produced by Mazda, tailored to North American market needs, says Steve Keate, president of International's Truck Group. He said the current sales level of LCFs in North America totals 30,000 to 40,000.
