2012 already looks to be a year for firsts, as Craftsman is scheduled to debut its new CTX tractor at the upcoming 2012 Detroit Auto Show. This will be the first time ever that the Detroit Auto Show will be debuting a lawn tractor, alongside the highly anticipated Honda NSX and Lexus LF-LC Hybrid, just to name a couple of scheduled debuts.
Interestingly enough, Craftsman’s CTX tractor’s specifications sheet reads much like a vehicle’s, featuring Automatic Traction Control, an EFM system, Electronic Cutting Height Adjustment and Quick Deck Removal. It’s powered by a Briggs & Stratton engine that is good for 30-hp and can deliver 8-mph top speed going forward and 3-mph top speed going backwards.
The CTX tractor series will go on sale starting February 2012 at Sears stores nationwide. Two yard tractor models and two garden tractor models will be made available with pricing ranging from $2,999.99 to $6,499.99.
