If i understand this test correctly, each truck was loaded to 81% of its' GCWR. The Ford had the highest (by far) GCWR of the 3 trucks at 26,000 lbs.GM was 23,500lbs and DC was 21,000 lbs.

That means the Ford was loaded with an additional 3700 lbs of cinder blocks over the Dodge and 1260 lbs more cinder blocks than the Chevy.

If I understand this test correctly, just because FORD gives you a higher GCWR, these "experts" loaded more weight on the Ford than the DC or GM.

If I'm reading this correctly, then this is the most retarded stand alone test I've ever seen done in a pickup truck shootout in the history of trucks.

How can the Ford be expected to win if it has more weight to pull up the hill???

What if these so called "truck experts" just put the same weight behind each truck and performed the test? My guess is the Ford would have done considerably better.

I actually think the FORD was the most impressive since it pulled the heaviest load in the 2nd fastest time with the lowest HP/TQ rating, even if it had lower gears. Why not test a Ford with 4.10's and the standard GCWR and see what happens.

Heck, the EMPTY Ford truck weighs like 500-600 more lbs.

What a stupid test done by stupid a magazine .

Funny how the Ford and Dodge guys always call it unfair. I saw the Dodge guys crying it was unfair, even though they were the lightest. Maybe Ford shoudnt have s higher GCWR rating if it cant handle it.

I recommend you stop now! your starting a brand bashing which is not allowed on this site, yes theres the joking kind of brand bashing, but then theres the not joking kind, and it's true it is unfair the chevy has an advantage with the auto six speed the could have at least gave the dodge a manual six speed so it's a little fair same with the ford, see theres the guys like me and duke that stand up for all the brands, then theres the guys like you that are so caught up in thier brand that a site that probably has no technical knowledge on diesel trucks, i'm gonna stop now before i go to far.

I fixed the video link up on top for you.

It was an unfair test. What do you mean Ford shouldn't have a higher GCWR if it can't handle it. It did. It came in second with that higher rating. So you're saying that because Ford didn't win because it had an extra 3700 pounds strapped to its back...then it shouldn't have the higher rating? Really...that doesn't make much sense.

Tell ya what. I'm fairly out of shape...ok really out of shape. You're in better shape than me. Lets have a race. But...because you're in better shape you have to haul an extra 300 pounds on your back. When I win the race...what does that prove?

Abso-freaken-lutely nothing at all.

I apologize if I came off as brand bashing, not my intentions and I cant stand it when other people do it so I'm sorry. Ive had Dodge's with the Cummins, and my dad has 2 at home. I like em, good trucks. Also, being a farmer, I have quit a bit off knowledge on diesel engines, more than the average person. I prefer the Dmax obviously, I think it performs better than the Dodges we have, and the Fords I've run before. I still think the test was fair. Just becaue GM has a 6 speed auto and Dodge has a 4 doesnt make it unfair, thats just how they come stock. True, dodge probably would have done better on the grade with a 6 speed manual. But the test was auto vs auto, which is what most people prefer. Once again I apologize guys, Id own any of the 3 trucks in a heartbeat, I personally prefer the GM, and thought the test was fair, but just my opinion.

What you need to do is go back and read carefully how the test was done.
Tell me how the chevy would have done with more weight strapped to it than the Ford.

Maybe if you really wanted to be "fair", they would strap more weight on the chevy since it has more gears and more HP and it has less curb weight. But no, these "geniuses" are more interested in letting a GCWR sticker to determine how to "level the playing field".

All 3 trucks should be pulling the same amount of weight. These retards that did this test aren't even smart enough to understand that these 3 trucks compete for the same market segment, so they should be tested as such.

It's a damn shame a couple of guys like me & 4cstr have more brains & truck experience than the tards that tested the trucks.

Buy what you want, I can see the Ford may have won the test with the least HP/TQ if the total weights of all 3 trucks were the same. The DC would have been a distant 3rd.

Diesel Power Mag did a comparison but did use the same weight trailor on all three. Chevy still killed on acceleration loaded and unloaded.
