Look ma, king of the dirt pile

If you are desperate to own the world’s biggest pick up truck, then check out the new International CXT recently unveiled by International Truck and Engine Corporation.

Built on the same platform as dump trucks and snowplows, the International CXT hauls three times the payload of consumer pick-up trucks, is all-wheel drive, uses air brakes and offers towing, dumping and tilt bed capability.

Additionally, it features a spacious interior with crew cab design that seats five and can be customised to meet owners’ specific needs – from paint colour to air seats to flat screen TVs.

In terms of performance, the International CXT features International’s DT466 diesel engine with a horsepower rating of 220 hp and 540 lb.-ft. of torque, an electronically controlled turbocharger, as well as automatic transmission and standard cab air-suspension.

“While there is nothing tougher or more extreme on the market than the International CXT, it is as much a statement of success as it is performance. If you brought this truck to the playground, you’d be king of the dirt pile,” said Rob Swim, director, vehicle centre marketing strategy, International Truck and Engine Corporation.

Unsurprisingly, the new truck will be manufactured in Texas.
