International CXT

Wednesday, September 15th, 2004 · 2 Comments

CXT-2.gif H2 not big enough for you? No worries. Just fork over 100 grand or so, and the new International CXT industrial-size truck built on a dump-truck frame — with dump-truck functionality — can be yours. It’s street legal and you don’t even need a commercial license to drive it. It’s 2-1/2 feet taller than the H2 and 4 feet longer.

Yeah, baby, now we’re talkin’. So get the fuck out of my way and watch yoself before you get in my way.

Sarcasm aside, I must admit this thing is pretty bad-ass. What I like about it is that it seems to serve a function: Big hauling. This is something the H2 cannot claim. Sure, the H2 in its original Hummer form serves a military function, but I’ve seen more H2s in cities than scaling walls or moats. In other words, I think people with the means to purchase this truck will do so for business, not just for show. I don’t think we’ll see any rappers or NBA players cruising the CXT anytime soon.

    “Born out of a 20-ton hauler and other International ® severe service trucks used by the construction, government and waste industries, the International CXT is built on the same platform as dump trucks and snowplows. As a result, it is a vehicle unrivaled in capability, size and appearance. It hauls three times the payload of consumer pick-up trucks, is all-wheel drive, uses air brakes for unmatched stopping ability and offers towing, dumping and tilt bed capability. Additionally, it features a spacious interior with crew cab design that seats six and can be customized to meet owners’ specific needs – from paint color to air seats to flat screen TVs.”

    I disagree. I think most people with the means to buy this truck who actually have a need for it will buy it in its commercial form. This is just a Hummer copycat – going bigger than is necessary because they can. Personally I think this truck is obscene – but wouldn’t mind taking one for a test drive.
