    I like that they have kept the fuel tanks to scale with their useful size
    And I thought my wife's 4x4 Suburban could choke down the fuel. That thing has
    to drink like a d*mn airplane! I bet it would pull a condominium though.

    How about International Truck's new offering:

    International Truck and Engine Corp. is producing what it calls the world's biggest production pickup, a 14,500-pound monster capable of towing 20 tons. The 5- passenger 5-passenger CXT is nine feet tall, eight feet wide, 21 1/2 feet long and gets about seven miles on a gallon of diesel. The truck is manfactured in Garland, Texas.

    New question here.

    Man, with gas tanks that large it looks like it could go for a long haul.

    I can't find any info about these trucks online anywhere.

    I saw the International in the newspaper. It starts at $93,000 dollars has a 400 something cubic inch turbo diesel. Pretty impressive, but I'll stick to my civic. I just drove up the White Mountains in New Hampshire, a 480 mile round trip and I used less than 12 gallons of gas costing about 23 dollars, with either one of those your talking like 50 gallons of gas at around 100 dollars and the civic is only 15,000 dollars. I would still drive one of those monsters given the chance, so long as I don't have to own it or pay for the gas.
    I like to ride bikes.

    I like the IH better. But if you want to go that big, why not just get a Unimog, they are available in 4 doors, are tough as nails, and assumming they fit, will go down any trail you want. (Hint, those are 40" tires from the factory with front and rear lockers and 1000:1 crawl ratios). BTW, they are (or at least used to be) so slow they make a Hummer look fast.

    Perfect for soccer moms!

    I can see power hungry soccer moms driving these Super-SUV's (Stupid Useless Vehicle or Suburban Umbilical Vehicle) with a cell phone in her ear, brain dead kids in the back, glued to the DVD player screen or Game Boy, as she careens down the road, oblivious to her surroundings, running over cyclists who dare get in her way! [silly over exaggerated rant off]

    I heard about these last week on the radio. They were talking about how the Hollywood types will be clamoring for them once the word gets out! They are a nice bit of engineering, but I'll stick with a Subaru when it comes to SUV's.

    Don't sweat the big Ford: it's an F-650 and has big old air brakes. You or your soccer mom will need a new licence for that. It's even possible the rig will be treated as a tractor (see Cowboy Cadillac's site for an explanation) and mean you'll need a Class 1 Commercial license to drive it.

    I'm going to have to sign up for classes.

    Awesome, just the other day I was thinking to myself: "self, if I could only carry twenty guys with thier bikes across the rubicon trail...." The unimog is the answer to that perpetual dilema (please note sarcasm)

    HEY! oh, them...

    the "hollywood types" I know are fairly eco-minded. I talked to Ed Begley Jr. at a restaurant one day and as he finished his lunch he jumped up in a hurry. "Gotta catch my bus home". Nice. I see way more H2s and supersized SUVs out in the suburbs.

    here's a good article on Slate on how vehicles over 6k lbs. are prohibited from most residential streets in L.A. and S.F. Does wifey realize that as she runs errands in the cute H2? Doubt it...

    are local politicians going to enforce it???

    "oh hey, look at the time...gotta run, but I'll get back to your question later..."

    I'm just waiting for the Aussie-spec...

    ...turbo diesel Landcruiser to come stateside. Personally, I need a SUV for my habits - but won't get another until I can find something that at least makes an honest attempt at achieving improved MPG.

    I'd pitch my paid-for ExploDer but the trade/used value is so low that it's cheaper to just keeping burning too much expensive gas.

    I wish more of the mid-sized SUVs had some form of 6cyl TDI application - maybe 30mpg...

    I hate SUVs. No I don't. Y...

    I agree. I think a lot of "hollywood types" are genuinely eco-friendly. I think another group are eco-friendly because that is "cool" right now. Now the rap industry.....uh....that's a whole different story.

    I also agree that you see a ton of H2s, suburbans, lifted trucks (I'm not talking about for offroad purposes) in the suburbs. I live right near Santa Clara University (a private jesuit institution for rich kids) and most of them drive SUVs, or extremely large trucks (think F250 riding on 35" tires). When it is time to move in at Santa Clara U dorms, it looks like an SUV convention, H2s galore! Anyway, the point is that upper middle class and middle class people who are trying to look upper middle class seem to be buying the H2s left and right.

    Yeah, the American Middle Class loves to promenade at the college student dropoff, and on Parent's Day/Weekend. It was that way at my decidedly middle-class Jesuit college, Parent's Weekend and school year start/end were when the big daddy cars would show up. Of course, that was 20 years ago. Now it's moved down the filial chain and the students themselves are given cars that allow the one-upsmanship to carry on at the students' level while the parents aren't there with their big daddy cars.

    I'll see your mover and raise the stakes

    One of my company's subsidiaries makes this one. The largest front end loader in the world. It scoops 53 square yards/160,000 lbs, has a 2300 HP 16 cylinder engine, and tops out at a blazing 10.5 MPH! Amaze your friends, Impress your neighbors! You can even build a huge set of dirt ramps in just an hour or two! Wooo-hooo!

    those aren't trucks...THIS is a truck!!

    The Terex Titan was manufactured by General Motors of Canada, and is to date the world's largest tandem axle truck ever built. Back in 1978, one Titan was brought to Sparwood, B.C. from California, for use in a mine. The truck was to large to be moved by road, so it arrived by train on 8 flatbed cars. It was re-assembled and driven to the mine.

    The Terex Titan is powered a 16 cylinder locomotive engine, and delivers 3300 horsepower. It was combined with a huge generator to deliver power to 4 traction engines located on the real wheels. The generator alone has enough power to supply 250 homes with electricity.

    Specifications:

    Height: 6.9 m (22.5 ft) With Box Raised: 17.1 m (56 ft)
    Length: 20.1 m (66 ft) Width: 7.6 m (25 ft)
    Weight: 260 tons Payload: 350 tons
    Max Weight: 610 tons Horse Power: 3300

    The tires are 11.5 ft in diameter, and weigh 4 tons each. Two Greyhound buses and two pick-up trucks would fit inside its dumper.

    I see an evolving niche market for lift kits / wheels and tires to outfit the new offerings from ford / international - after, it's not super cool till you spent several grand on pimpin' out the truck so it's bigger than the neighbors. Imagine, F650 crew-cab extended bed with a 9" lift and some spinners aaaaahhhhhhh-yeeeeaaaaaaahhhhh bbbooooooyyyyyyyy!!!!! Hmmm... might also open up a market for oversize Fox stickers....

    Can you imagine what it would be like to drive one of those Fords up to the drive-thru pickup window, place an order, and say "SUPER SIZE IT"?

    I've got bigger problems ....

    these are on the way to Canada, should be here any day marketed by Mercedes. But nobody can tell me if the Knolly will cause the front wheels to stay on the ground, if use a rear rack? Hmn.

    1) The Smart Cars- Those things were all over europe when I was there, Tiny and great for travel around Europeon citys (where the BMW 520i I rented is considered a large/full size car).

    2) F650 lift kits and spinners. I can see it already, guys arguing how pimp the new 35" rims are.

    I'm probably going to buy this to tow my boat. I will maybe be able to fit two bikes, sideways, in the bed in order to save gas (lost fuel efficiency due to aerodynamic drag resulting from roof racks).

    Unfortunately, one cannot get past, nor ignore, the fact that it's a Ford !!!! Given the quality of past Ford products owned (was able to buy on A plan when I lived/worked in MI), I'm likely to never, ever, ever own a Ford again.....Fords suck out loud....especially BIG ones....t

    Man,

    That is Sweeet! Both the SUV and the yellow Pickup! Way too big for my taste, but still they look fargin awesome. I love it when tree huggers complain . If ever I did get one, I would mount my ride w/ a 2" hitch rack from Sportworks and gun rack for other activities that are not considered politcally correct by the Left. Man, do I love America and freedom of choice!

    love the Smart! First saw them in London and went to the local Benz dealer to see more. And yes there's a rear bike rack option. I'd be afraid of being the golf ball to someone else's 3 iron, but you takes your chances...

    Personally I think that all of the above trucks are pretty silly and aside from their only value, towing capacity, they remain an ecological nightmare. IMHO A guy I know slaps bumper stickers on them that say "I'm changing the climate, ask me how"

    Got a kick out of the Recovery Vehicle sticker

    Not long ago, I found myself pulling an H2 that was all hopped up on bling out of a roadside ditch with the winch on my Rubicon. Jeez those things are heavy! They're supposed to be off-road capable, right?

    BTW, dude man got all upset that I put a rub spot on his shiny bumper. Maybe next time I'll leave the H2 in the ditch.

    But seriously, think of the money single speeders could save if they had one of these to carry their bike to the trailhead.

    No more need for those expensive flipflop hubs.

    Nauseating? Not sure what would be worst, the thought of eating fast food, or being behind the wheel of such an obnoxiously blatant waste of resources.

    I'm probably going to buy this to tow my boat. I will maybe be able to fit two bikes, sideways, in the bed in order to save gas (lost fuel efficiency due to aerodynamic drag resulting from roof racks).
    Uhh... do you think it will really make a difference...?
