LISLE, Ill., Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- International Truck is taking the new International® A26 12.4L engine on the road to dealers throughout the United States and Canada with the launch of its International® A26 Mobile Training Tour.
The tour will visit over 100 International Truck dealer locations to provide an up close and personal opportunity for sales, parts and service personnel, and customers to experience the newly designed and proven engine for themselves. Professional trainers will demonstrate increased fuel efficiency, reduced noise, lower weight and proven uptime as they teach the ins and outs of the engine.

In addition, many dealerships will also be holding A26 engine customer training events concurrent with sales training.
