The company said it expected to sell about 50 of the trucks, and instead has already taken orders for about 200 since the first deliveries in September.

It's now hoping to sell between 500 and 1,000 by the end of 2005.
Lord help us

Re: Need a new tow vehicle?

Will the soccer moms need to get a CDL for these things? They sure can haul a lot of groceries.

no CDL http://www.internationaldelivers.com.../CXTdetail.pdf
2 more pounds (GVWR) and you would need one. thats for the CTX which is the biggest.

I don't think I'd really want one. but over 500ft/lbs of torque would be cool to have.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
