    Move over Hummer



    Warrenville, IL (September 13, 2004) What hauls six tons, can seat a football team’s offensive line and, for kids over 20 who miss playing with trucks in the sandbox, is the ultimate toy for extreme work and play? The International CXT, the world’s biggest production pick-up truck for commercial business owners and the newest truck from International Truck and Engine Corporation.

    International, the operating company of Navistar International Corporation and a leading truck manufacturer, will officially unveil the International CXT on Thursday, Sept. 16, at its plant in Garland, Texas.

    “The International CXT brings new meaning to ‘everything is big in Texas,’” said Garland Mayor Bob Day. “There is nothing on the road as bold, strong and tough as this truck, and we are delighted that International Truck and Engine Corporation will manufacture it here in Garland.”

    My neighbor down the street has one - if not this make, it's a semi truck/tractor and all he does is pull his ATV trailer (the kind that you put your bikes/atvs into it and the whole rear drops down like a ramp) with it. He's filthy rich - has every toy imaginable.

    WOW, that looks like YET ANOTHER gas-guzzling, road-hogging, corner-flipping, engine-exploding, pedestrian-mauling, suburb-wrecking waste of time!

    Gotta get me one of those!

    Actually if it is a diesel it will get far better fuel economy than a gasoline counterpart. And seeing as it is a diesel, the engines are built to run literally millions of miles before major repair. They can go longer before they are due an oil change, they don't use spark plugs. Their tires usually last longer and can be retread for extended usage.

    My father is a diesel mechanic and we own several diesel powered vehicles as well as 2 Mack CHN series trucks.

    That said, diesel sure does stink, and the size of this beast is over the top. But I'd still enjoy driving it. I wonder if you need a CDL to drive it?

    CDL is usually, I think, I weight class issue.

    edit -

    The Federal standard requires States to issue a CDL to drivers according to the following license classifications:

    Class A -- Any combination of vehicles with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds provided the GVWR of the vehicle(s) being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.

    Class B -- Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing a vehicle not in excess of 10,000 pounds GVWR.

    Class C -- Any single vehicle, or combination of vehicles, that does not meet the definition of Class A or Class B, but is either designed to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver, or is placarded for hazardous materials.

    The newer diesel engines like the ones in the BMW 5 series and X5 models consume it at Petrol-like levels. My friend made a joke of these diesel BMW's "You have 5 million (Pesos) to buy a BMW but no money for gas you have to get a diesel?!"

    Absolutley.

    I'm getting the Dark Blue color with dual stacks, air horns, roof lights, a class 4 tow hitch, DVD player for the back seat, and fuzzy dice.

    It barely made the cutoff:

    GVWR: 25,999 lbs. (Non-Commercial Drivers License applicable)

    I cannot believe it. That has to be the closest to NON-CDL specs as you can get. Don't expect to be drag racing that 220hp engine:

    Engine: International® DT466 I-6 diesel, 220 HP, 540 lb.ft. Torque

    LOL How can it have such a tiny diesel engine? And with a 70 gallon tank, your wallet better be phat.

    Fuel: Polished Aluminum 70 gallon Diesel

    http://www.internationaldelivers.com.../CXTdetail.pdf

    The specs in detail above.
