International MV Series Box Trucks — Although Einstein’s theory of relatively has more to do with how gravity works, other things can exemplify how time is also relative. A week spent sitting on a tropical island drinking pina coladas feels significantly different than a week sitting in solitary confinement. An hour laying in a hammock with someone you love seems to go quite a lot faster than roofing in the middle of August in Charleston. Yet, a week is still a week, and an hour is still an hour. This same idea applies to driving a box truck from one place to another.
Logistics make the world go around (not literally), but delivery trucks can make the life of a driver a great or terrible thing. Thankfully there are trucks like the International MV Series Box Truck to help make things as good as they can be.
All International MV Series Box Trucks start off with a few options. First you have to choose whether you want a Day Cab, Extended Cab or Crew Cab. Most will opt for the Day Cab, but if more space is needed, or a bigger team is required, then there are options for that. Next the cab height can be chosen between low or mid and a color can be chosen from one of eleven colors including red, blue, green and even yellow. Axle configuration can be chosen between 4×2 or 6×4, while exhaust can be had in horizontal or vertical form, and the fuel tank can either be a 50 or 70 gallon single tank under the drivers side of the cab, or dual 50 gallon tanks, one on each side to allow for a full 100 gallons on tap.
The frame is made from HSLA reinforced cold-rolled steel, while the doors swing out to a 62-degree angle, and the breakaway mirrors make things a bit easier day-to-day, while the newly reshaped doors and side windows allow for significantly more visibility thank ever before.
Power can be had from one of two very powerful Cummins engines. The B6.7 is a 6.7-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel engine, which is technically the base engine, and can make up to 360 impressive horsepower and up to 800 massive pound-feet of torque. The other engine is an even more robust L9. This upgrade is a gigantic 8.9-liter inline six-cylinder turbodiesel engine that makes up to 450-horsepower and up to an incredible 1,250 pound feet of torque. That power is then routed through your choice of one of many transmissions: an Allison 1000, 2000, 3000 automatic, an Eaton 6 or 10 speed manual, an Eaton 7-speed dual clutch automatic or an Eaton 10-speed fully automated manual. Depending on your choices, the GVW of the MV can range from 23,500-44,600 pounds.
That speed can be scrubbed off by either standard hydraulic four-channel disc brakes that have ABS as well as optional traction control. You can upgrade to the more powerful air brakes that also have optional traction control as well as optional electronic stability and traction control.
You also get a choice of interior setup with the International MV Series Box Truck — either the more traditional Flat option which keeps the dashboard not-so-surprisingly flat across the cab or the more cockpit style Wing option, which angles the center stack of the dash towards the driver to allow for more control to and access to auxiliary switches. The interior has two trim choices as well. The Deluxe Trim includes thinks like vinyl seating, double visors, rubber floors, cab insulation and dual cup holders. Upgrade to the Premium Trim and you will get dual moveable visors, speakers and reading lights.
Time can be perceived in many different ways, and they are relative to what you happen to be doing at the time. And while, several hours in the International MV Series Box Truck might not be quite as enticing as swimming with dolphins or getting a massage from a professional, but it will make your time pass in a much more pleasurable way than in many of its competitors.
