The LT Series Class 8 trucks incorporates operator features uncovered during the company’s DriverFirst product design focus.

International Truck HX Series is a line of premium Class 8 trucks and tractors aimed squarely at construction and other vocational tasks.

Caterpillar has expanded its heavy-duty line of Class 8 work trucks with the new Cat CT681 vocational truck, a set-forward-axle model designed for customers who prefer a longer wheelbase truck or who must comply with restrictive load limitations on bridges and roads. 

Single-rear-axle MHD 4x2 Mack Granite comes in Class 7 and Class 8 versions.

All-wheel drive versions of Western Star 4700SB (setback front axle) come in 4x4 and 6x6 versions.
