=== Tractor Comparison, diesel version ===
The diesel version of the International 544 competed in 1968 with the diesel MC Nuffield 10/60, David Brown 990, Deutz D5506, Fiat 615, John Deere 2020 U, Massey-Ferguson MF165, Minneapolis-Moline U302 Super Standard, and Oliver 1450. The Ford 4000 All Purpose was less powerful in 1968 and the Ford 5000 All Purpose was more powerful. In 1969 the improved Ford 4000 All Purpose more closely matched the International and the lower 1970 Ford 4000 SU was an even better match. The 1971 Fiat 600 and nearly identical Fiat-built Minneapolis-Moline G450 and Oliver 1365 also matched the International 544.
