Workhorse Adds MetroStar Trucks to Its Walk-in Lineup

Construction Equipment Guide

Over the past year, the walk-in truck manufactured by Workhorse Custom Chassis has seen a number of changes, starting with its new, heavy-duty W62 chassis and including the new look of the front hood and grill. Now, it’s getting a new name to go with that makeover that links it to both present and past International trucks: the MetroStar.

Workhorse, which manufactures chassis for walk-in trucks, motor homes and buses, is a wholly owned subsidiary of International Truck and Engine Corporation. Now, the MetroStar badge on the side of the truck, coupled with the new hood and grill design, makes the walk-in a clear sibling of the other Star brands of the International truck lineup, including the WorkStar, DuraStar, TransStar, ProStar, PayStar and CityStar.

The MetroStar is available on 86.5- and 93.5-in.-wide (219 and 237 cm) bodies. It has cargo body lengths from 10 to 22 ft. (3 to 6.7 m), built on the full range of Workhorse gas and diesel chassis options from 9,400- to 23,500-lb. (4,264 to 10,659 kg) GVWR.

Workhorse uses General Motors 4.8, 6.0 and 8.1L Vortec gas engines and International’s 4.5L MaxxForce 5 V6 diesel powerplant.

The MetroStar is now offered exclusively through Workhorse dealerships and exclusively built on Workhorse chassis, with bodies currently available from Utilimaster and coming soon from Morgan Olson.
