Why it matters
The 2007 International MXT is a super-heavy-duty pickup for people who need more towing and hauling capacity than is normally found in typical half, three-quarter, and one-ton trucks. With its roomy crew-sized cab, serious payload and towing capacity, standard four-wheel drive, and torquey diesel V8 engine, the MXT is an all-purpose brute. It’s got lots of attitude, too, which might be all some buyers are interested in purchasing.
What’s under the hood
Order the Prestige Interior Package and you’ll get ivory-faced sport gauges, metallic interior accents, padded armrests, more comfortable Air Ride front and rear seating, carpeting, and special trim. Other options for the 2007 International MXT include a DVD player, a touch-screen navigation system with a back-up camera, a premium sound system, and Sirius satellite radio.
