Workhorse expands its own horizons with 16,000-lb-GVWR version of W42

Workhorse Custom Chassis has entered a new market with the introduction of a 16,000-lb-GVWR version of its new W42 chassis. The platform is available with either a diesel or gas engine for companies using walk-in trucks.

The diesel platform is powered by the International VT 275 V-6 engine coupled to an Allison LCT-1000 electronic five-speed transmission. The gas version has the 6.0L GM Vortec 6000 coupled to GM's 4L80-E Hydromatic electronic transmission with overdrive. The chassis has wheelbases of 125, 133, 157, 178 and 190 inches.

The new International diesel engine delivers 200 horsepower and 440 ft-lb of torque. Its dual-staged turbocharging system provides superior acceleration, using a small turbo for quick, low-speed responsiveness and a second turbo for power at higher rpms. The International Electro-Hydraulic Generation Two (G2) fuel injection system delivers higher injection pressures with precise control.

The GM Vortec 6.0L gas engine provides 300 horsepower and 355 ft-lb of torque and is 50-state emissions-compliant.
