The International CXT or Commercial Extreme Truck is a very large pickup truck. Introduced in September 2004, the CXT is 21 ft (6.4 m) long with a 9 ft (2.7 m) tall cab. It is the largest production pickup truck on the market, its curb weight of 14,500 lbs is around twice the weight of a Hummer H1. Its GVWR is 25,999 lbs.



The CXT is built on an International 7300 chassis and is equipped with the DT 466 diesel engine and is capable of towing up to 20 tons while its air-ride cab and individual bucket seats offer a smooth ride for the driver and 4 adult passengers. The CXT's interior includes luxury options such as leather, DVD, and satellite radio. Mechanical features include air brakes, an Allison 2500HD automatic transmission, and 4 wheel drive. The CXT uses a Meritor MTC 4208 two-speed transfer case. The CXT gets 8-10 miles per gallon, and has a 70 gallon tank. The CXT is priced from $93,000 to $115,000.

In a word- NO.



It may look mean but the brake chambers and slack adjusters sit so low that leaving the pavment would be a invitation to disaster.



I've seen some realy sweet reconditioned 2 axel tractors lately for a little as $25K. I could pitch the 5th wheel and build one hell of a pick up bed for the $75K saved not buying one of these.-Ken
