=== Tractor Comparison, gasoline version ===
Case didn't make a utility tractor in the same power class as the International 544 so its closest model was the 730CK Special, a larger and more powerful standard tractor. In 1968 Ford tractors bracketed the International, the 4000 All Purpose having several hp less and the 5000 All Purpose having several hp more. In 1969 the 4000 got a bigger engine, giving it almost as much power as the International. The Ford All Purpose tractors were built taller than traditional utility tractors so, in 1970, Ford brought out the 4000 SU, basically the 4000-series engine in the chassis of the smaller [[Ford 3000|3000]] utility. The John Deere 2010 U was a close match for the International. In 1972 it was replaced by the more powerful 2030 RU. In 1968 the Massey-Ferguson MF165's 176 ci Continental 4-cylinder engine provided less power than the International's 200 ci four. In 1969 the MF165 got a larger Perkins 212 ci engine, making it eaqual to the International. The taller Minneapolis-Moline U302 Super Standard and Oliver 1550 Wheatland were also in the same power class as the International 544.

The gasoline-powered 1968 International 544 Utility compared very well in weight and power with the John Deere 2020 and Massey-Ferguson MF165. However, the 544 was priced considerably higher than the 504 it replaced and ended up several hundred dollars more expensive than its two closest competitors. Production figures are difficult to interpret because they include both gas and diesel models and various chassis types. However, it appears that the International production and sales were far behind the Massey-Ferguson and John Deere. The 6-cylinder Oliver 1550 weighed much more than the others and cost more. In 1969 the upgraded Ford 4000 moved into the same power and price class as the International. The Massey-Ferguson MF165 was revised with a Perkins 212ci 4-cylinder gas engine. The Oliver 1555 was little changed from the 1550 it replaced.
