The International 7000-MV is powered by the same heavy duty turbo-charged diesel engine that’s made a name tackling gravel pits, landfills and rugged construction sites. Plus, it offers up to a 50-degree wheel cut for a tighter turning radius.

Navistar Defense used the chassis of the Navistar International's WorkStar chassis to build  the Navistar 7000 series of military heavy vehicles. The truck is available in a variety of configurations (4×2, 4×4, 6×4, and 6×6) and engine types

The US Army ordered 2,900 of the Navistar 7000 trucks in 2007 for the Afghan National Army and the Iraqi Ministry of Defense. The US Army ordered an additional 7,000 vehicles the following year.

In fulfillment of  MSVS MilCOTS (Militarized Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) requirement, the Canadian Army  adopted the Navistar Defence LLC Medium Logistics truck. Starting in June 2010, 1,300 Navistar MSVS SMP (Standard Military Pattern) began replacing part of Canadian Army fleet of vehicles

This Canadian Armed Forces Navistar 7000 has an unusual 9-passenger cab. A crane is mounted between the cab and the box.

This Canadian Armed Forces Navistar 7000 has an unusual 9-passenger cab. A crane is mounted between the cab and the box. The International 7000-MV 9-Man Cab is ideal for transporting crew along with equipment. A team of mechanics and service technicians can ride safely up front, with all their equipment secured in the rear cage. The vehicle also features an auger with security screen and a hydraulic winch.

In July 2012, however, Canada cancelled its order for 1500 MSVS SMP. In July 2015, Canada awarded the SMP contract to Mack Trucks instead. Mack began delivering Kerax-series trucks in 2017.
