Biggest SUV: Navistar International 7300 CXT Dwarfs All SUVs

This is the biggest baddest suv I've ever seen. It takes away a slight amount of the guilt I have from recently purchasing a Yukon Denali but not much. Can you imagine taking the kids to a soccer game with this thing?

A Semi With Four Doors and Room for car seats - Navistar's International 7300 CXT SUV.
Here's an excerpt from the International Truck site describing their new truck.
"Your eyes don't deceive you. It's a pickup truck. From International. Which makes it much more than a pickuptruck. It's an International © 7300 CXT born out of the proven International 7300 severe service truck used by professionals for the most rugged applications."

So you get all the attributes of a commercial truck – but you don't need a commercial driver's license to drive it.
The legendary International © DT 466 diesel engine provides up to 6 tons of hauling power. The air-ride cab and seats provide an exceptionally smooth ride. And a spacious and well-appointed interior ensures automotive-like comfort and convenience. The result of more than a century of leadership in the truck market, the International 7300 CXT delivers performance. In a big way"

Update to Post Aug 11, 2005
When I initially posted about the biggest suv I owned a Yukon Denali. After 5 months my wife and I couldn't stand it any longer and decided to replace it. We ended up bying a diesel powered vehicle but not the International CXT. Instead we purchased a 2005 Volkswagen Jetta TDI powered by a 1.9 liter TDI [turbo diesel]. We love it. Going from 13 mpg in the city to 36 mpg in the city is amazing and Shannon can actually park it. We do miss some of the room we had in the Yukon but it's totally worth it and I know Shannon would agree. So I'm sorry to disappoint those of you that thought I love gas guzzling oversized bloated suvs, I'm really a penny-pincher at heart.

(7) Thoughts on Biggest SUV: Navistar International 7300 CXT Dwarfs All SUVs

My 1984 Mercedes 300D Turbo Diesel sedan (that I bought for $100--yes, I said $100) gets about 25mpg and would probably do better if I took it to a mechanic for a tune up. Man, I love German cars (never had one before).

You spend too much on cars. The denali is expensive. The jetta can't even hold nine people. You lost a lot of cash. But why would you buy a $45,000+ SUV and then go buy a $36,000 SUV? That's crazy! Just get a minivan if you need room for cargo or people. However, the Denali is a cool car! Volkswagen is a good brand, too!

Thank you for the photo available on the new international cxt! I've been looking everywhere for a photo of one! my husband owns an old international pickup and had heard the rumor that international came out with a new model. well that they did! He will be really excited to see the photo. International is and always will be the most trusted and tough truck brand in our opionion.

I have been driving a 2008 Armada for the last 3 years and its not a bad large SUV. A little tuff on gas but after a year mileage went from 12MPG to 14MPG average. Not too bad for such a large powerful SUV. We are going to sell it and get a different SUV because one thing I hate about this thing is the handling really sucks. The dealers won't do anything about it because they can't, its built into the vehicle design. Let me know of any SUV's you have owned and liked.
Thanks Bob
