February 9, 2007 International Truck and Engine is marking the 100th anniversary of its first truck (built in 1907 at McCormick Works in Chicago) by unleashing the ultimate image pickup truck. The International MXT Limited 4x4 pickup (Top Image) is being appropriately showcased at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show – in the same city it all began. Geared toward those who want to make a powerful statement and demand exclusivity, the International MXT provides an imposing presence on or off the road. The 300 bhp V8 engine produces 530 lb. ft. of torque and the unit is capable of towing just shy of eight tons. The MXT was originally displayed at the Chicago Auto Show in 2005 as a concept vehicle. Since then, it has undergone extensive engineering and testing to provide the comfort and amenities of a luxury interior within its behemoth exterior. The normal production version of the MXT (pictured at bottom) is also now available.

The International MXT features:

    Engine: International 6.0L V8 Diesel Seating: Driver and Passenger Premium Leather Front Seats, 3-Passenger Leather Rear Bench Seat Brakes: Hydraulic with 4-Channel ABS Payload Capacity: 2 Tons Chassis Towing Capacity: 7 3⁄4 Tons Wheels/Tires: 20-Inch Alloy Wheels/Pro Comp 40/13.5R20 Tires Transmission: Allison 2200 RDS 5-Speed Automatic Fuel Tank: 40-Gallon Capacity Exterior Package: MXT Sport Exterior (Standard) Including Power Heated Mirrors, Chrome Front Bumper with Tow Hooks, Aluminum Cab Steps Electronics: Optional CD/DVD Player, 6.5-Inch Mounted Touch Screen with DVD Navigation and Back-up Camera; 10-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor
