International Tops the Truck Show Honours
With LoneStar ‘Blade’ leading the way, crowds flocked to the Navistar stand.
The 2015 Brisbane Truck Show has been a stunning success for Navistar Auspac and the return of the famous International truck brand.
“We had a big story to tell and new products to show, and it is extremely gratifying to know that we were able to convey that story and show those products with such an exceptional level of acceptance to a broad audience,” said Glen Sharman, Navistar Auspac Director of Sales, Marketing and Business Development.
The long-anticipated return of International to the Australian truck market was led by two immaculately prepared ProStar models.
Yet by far the biggest crowd-puller at this year’s show was the International LoneStar ‘Blade’. Shipped from the US especially for the Brisbane Truck Show, crowds flocked to the Navistar stand for Australia’s first look and feel of the enthralling LoneStar design.
With ‘Blade’ leading the charge and the Cummins ISX-powered ProStar in support, Navistar filled first and second spots in the much sought ‘Peoples’ Choice’ award for the most popular exhibits at the show.
ProStar led the star-studded return of the famous International brand, picking up the coveted Truck of the Show award.

However, the accolades certainly didn’t end there with a superbly presented ProStar sporting a highly innovative slide-out sleeper design unanimously judged winner of the coveted Truck of the Show award.
“Brisbane Truck Show is the premier event on the Australian trucking calendar and to win these highly-prized awards is testament to the appeal of our products and tribute to the workmanship and dedication provided by the people who put all the finishing touches to the trucks on show,” said Glen Sharman.
“We’ll certainly be back in 2017, bigger and even better. You can count on it.”
