As you can see from these results each of these trucks is quite capable of towing at least a 12,100 pound trailer in a variety of situations. And while we must declare one truck the overall winner, we are the true winners - the people that buy and use trucks everyday. Each of these trucks did everything that we asked them to do.
only subjective part of this test is selecting that winner. The
clincher was the fifteen percent grade test. Missed shifts just
don’t occur with automatics.
Congratulations to Ford and the engineers that contributed to the performance increase in the new Power Stroke 6.0 liter diesel. We can’t wait for the next test when the HO Cummins is available with an automatic and the Duramax gets updated for 2004 with some of the technology found in the Power Stroke.
We live in exciting times. Till the next test opportunity…..
