Dodge to Produce MAXXcab

Ward's Automotive is reporting the DaimlerChrysler will produce the Dodge MAXXcab, first unveiled in January during the 2000 North American International Auto Show.

The MAXXcab is billed by DCX as the World's first 'Passenger Priority Truck'. It's aggressive cab forward design combines the roominess of a van up front and the cargo carrying utility of a pickup truck in the rear.

The MAXXcab is slated to be built at the Pillette Road Truck Assembly Plant in Windsor, Ontario.
