    Must be that they got tired of cheating on small diesel emission laws and want to move to the big time!

    VW needs to worry about ethics and building their EVs, and Navistar needs to change names. International Harvester has a nice ring to it.

    It does but as much mergers and buyouts suck, it's reality. Nothing is the way it used to be and nothing stays the same for very long anymore. VW is tied to Mann and Scania which are big names in the foriegn market and EV's of all sizes are in the future. Freightliner is Daimler, Mack is Volvo with Renault in the soupy mix. Mecedes and Ram brands have been tossed in and out over the last twenty years or so. Today it's more about surviving working together for a larger market /world share rather than battling things alone. Don't like it either but just looking around on a dailey basis I've been noticing for some time now ( at least in the New England area) that there are many more Freightliners in fleets now where International were the common sight for years if not decades. When FL moved into the medium/light duty line under Daimler they hit International's share in that market hard.
