Default Tow Rig: International LoneStar Class 8 Big Rig

Chicago 2008: International introduces the LoneStar Class 8 big rig

Posted Feb 7th 2008 1:35PM by Jonathon Ramsey
Filed under: Chicago Auto Show, Commercial Trucks

click above for more high-rez images of the International LoneStar

We give International full credit this daring design that we spied uncovered earlier this year. Still, it appears as though it's taken a giant leap back three decades with the new Class 8 International LoneStar. International said its mission was to create a big rig that married aerodynamic efficiency with a unique look and a wide range of customization. Having asked truckers what they wanted, apparently customization means 'more cowbell lights and chrome.' As upright and retro Lite Brite as the design might be, it still gets gas mileage as good as the best aerodynamic semis on the market, according to International.

Inside, the cabin evokes the kind of ergonomic class that could have been meant for the outside -- the sleeper has hardwood flooring for that at-home feeling. The truck comes with 42 factory options, 23 inside, 19 outside, and International itself said it wants to create the same kind of aftermarket following that MINI and Harley currently enjoy. If nothing else, the LoneStar is a rig more than worthy of Lone Starr.

Damn that is sexy for a semi!

I just saw one of these behind a wrecker geting on to the IN toll road. Snapped a cell pic thinking I got to see some concept truck. It's badass!!! If I were stupid enough to want my own rig again, i'd buy one tomorrow.

I dunno, it was a white daycab. It was heading up on 49 out of the Valpo area, and waiting to turn into the plaza to get on the toll road.



I owned my own rig for a while, and that was 2 years ago. I'm just now getting out of the debt that Panther II and hauling for the automakers got me into. Now that I work for a company that provides me with a comfy truck, keeps it up very very well, and lets me park it all weekend, i'm happy.
It's much nicer when frieght gets slow to not have a $1000/ month payment that isn't slowing down to match.

I believe I saw one of those in KY last week. I only caught a quick look at it as it was in the opposite lane...but it had a slanted grill like that.

Nice of the douche writing the article to try his best to shit on the design. I think its cool looking.

I was wondering if they were going to go this way with the class8s or keep turning them into jelly beans
