International Truck & Engine Corp. recently announced it is delaying introduction of a new line of Class 4 and 5 cabovers for a few months, according to Mavourneen Ryan, a spokeswoman for the truck manufacturer.

Originally scheduled for release in November 2004, the new trucks will not be introduced until January 2005, three months later, along with the company’s new VT 6 engine for the new cabover line. The project is a joint venture with Ford Motor Co.
