The International TranStar (originally the International 8000 Series), is a range of Class 8 trucks produced by Navistar International for North America. Produced nearly exclusively as a semitractor, the product range is focused towards local delivery and regional shipping.
Introduced in 2002, the 8000 Series replaced a product line of the same name derived from the long-running International Harvester S-Series. In 2007, Navistar rebranded the 8000 Series as the International TranStar. The name is derived from International Harvester Transtar, used for various Class 8 conventional and cabover highway tractors from the 1960s to the 1980s.

Although using a wide variety of chassis frames for each vehicle, the 8000/Transtar is produced with the same cab as the International DuraStar (with which it shares a larger version of its grille), the ProStar, WorkStar, LoneStar, and the discontinued TerraStar and XT truck lines. As it is designed as a regional vehicle, the exterior of the TranStar did not include the fuel-efficiency enhancements integrated into the long-haul ProStar.
