Coming to a Soccer field near you. Maybe it's time to trade in the Excursion? :steering:

It's international's new attempt at a very extreme H2 type Sport ute . I read somewhere it's 94K base and up to 115K loaded w/ leather DVD etc.... Here's a link
News: World’s Biggest Production Pick-up Truck To Be Unveiled

Your eyes don’t deceive you. It’s a pickup truck. From International. Which makes it much more than a pickup truck. It’s an International® CXT – born out of the proven International 7300 severe service truck used by professionals for the most rugged applications.

Maybe a little overkill?

But I want one!

Actually I have seen many full time RV'ers using simular tow vehicles for a few years now.

I saw the logo in the top middle of the grill(couldn't read it, but it was familiar). But the headlights looked too swoopy to tell me it's an International.

Word is that Kenworth & Peterbuilt are jumping on the bandwagon also...

I need that 8p

I can't park my truck as it is. With that I wouldn't have to worry about staying in the lines. You would just have to take up two spaces.

One things for sure.... they won't take many Dodge Cummins in on trade!

Dodge Cummins - 325 hp @ 2900 RPM, 600 lb-ft torque @ 1600 RPM.

International DT466 - 215 hp @ 2300/2600 RPM, 540 lb-ft torque @1400 RPM.

No Dodge Commins, Ford Power Strokes OR Chevy's as they all produce more HP & more Torque.

Odd though... the Power Strokes is an International motor! You would think they'd put the Power Stroke in their own truck! Must be a contractrual obligation thingy....

I'd buy one, but i don't think it would fit in the garage. :mad:

This is the picture I really wanted for this thread. Took me a while to find it again...

Obviously not for real - came from this site: http://poseur.4x4.org/
