International 9400 Truck Model Review

The International 9400 is a Class 8 semi-trailer truck and was manufactured by Navistar International.  The 9400 heavy duty truck has a conventional layout.  This truck comes both a single axle or tandem rear axle.  It also comes with the choice of a Day cab or a Sleeper cab.  The engines used by Navistar International to build these trucks were the Cat Detroit Cummins.  Although the 9000 series of truck was discontinued and replaced with the LT, RH and HX series, it should not be a deterrent in your choice to purchase a 9400.   The International 9400 is a great truck with great features!

When you talk about a long history in truck building the name International is sure to come up.  International started out as International Motor Trucks and then changed to International Harvester Company in 1914.  The company was again renamed in 1986 to Navistar International.  This company has been around for over a century making trucks that last!
