I saw an actual International CXT driving around town today.
These $115,000 beasts make even H2 Hummers look small, towering 2 feet above them with a length 4½ feet longer. The CXT weighs twice as much as a fully loaded H2, which makes my tiny little Fiero feel even smaller.
I’m generally pretty tolerant of the country’s SUV obsession, believing that owners of oversized vehicles punish themselves more than enough through the weekly price of filling up their gargantuan gas tanks.
Still, seeing one of these CXT behemoths rolling through suburban streets leaves me not knowing whether I should laugh or cry.
