NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - For the driver looking for more of a pickup -- one that dwarfs the Hummer and Ford F-350 -- Navistar has just the ride for you.
The new CXT, short for commercial extreme truck and built from the same platform as the heavy truck maker's typical tow truck or cement mixer, will be sold starting this week by Navistar's International Truck & Engine subsidiary.
At 258 inches, or 21-1/2 feet long, the CXT's about 4-1/2 feet longer than the new Hummer H2 pickup, and about 2 inches longer than the F-350 Crew Cab. But it really towers over what's on the road now is in height, at 108 inches, or 11 feet, a foot above a basketball rim and more than two feet taller than the Hummer or the F-350...
The vehicle weighs about seven tons empty and can carry another six tons in its truck bed.
