Vehicle Overview
What can you do when even the largest pickup trucks aren't big enough to suit your tastes or your hauling needs? If International has its way, you'll turn to a mammoth pickup dubbed RXT.

International Truck and Engine Corp. has a history dating back to the early days of the automobile. The company is well known for manufacturing commercial trucks, so it was surprising when it turned up at the 2005 Chicago Auto Show with the RXT. Compared with conventional full-size pickups, the RXT falls into a separate, oversize category. It was International's first appearance at the Chicago show in 25 years.

International also produces a CXT model, which is billed as the world's largest pickup. While the CXT promises fuel economy of only 8 mpg, International says the RXT manages 10 or 12 mpg. Towing capacity isn't quite as muscular, but the RXT is able to carry almost as much as its monstrous brother. To make the RXT appeal to ordinary people, its gross vehicle weight rating was limited to 25,500 pounds. On the highway, the RXT isn't required to stop at weigh stations.

International says the RXT will be "built for business owners who want a truck that promotes themselves as much as their businesses." Prices are expected to run from just under $70,000 to about $90,000 when the RXT goes on sale late in 2005.


Exterior
Standing 8 feet tall, the Crew Cab RXT 4x2 has an 8-foot cargo bed and dual rear wheels. What International calls sleek and refined styling includes full-body side skirts, a low step-in height and an aerodynamically shaped hood. An air cab suspension is installed. Even though the CXT pickup truck has air brakes, the RXT uses hydraulic brakes.

Interior
Five occupants fit inside the RXT's crew cab, which features a front center console, black leather seats and carpeting. A premium sound system is installed.

Under the Hood
An International VT 365 diesel V-8 develops 230 horsepower and 540 pounds-feet of torque in the RXT. The V-8 teams with an Allison HS five-speed-automatic transmission.

Safety
Safety features include antilock brakes and traction control.
