haven't seen that one yet... must have just come out right after the shootout video I posted in the mega thread above.. (here it is again: http://www.insideline.com/gmc/sierra-3500hd/2011/2011-heavy-duty-truck-comparison-test.html )

Me thinks this is a classic case of 1st generation teething pains... the duramax/allison has been paired up for a decade now (not counting the short stint the ZF6 did on there).. they've had a long time to optimize the platform.

Even with the Ford lagging behind a little, it's nevertheless still a beast that can tow anything anywhere.... I came very close to getting it but shied away because the engine was just soooo new..

I find it interesting that that the Ford put out the most torque. I don't think it has a 1-1 gear ratio in the tranny either. How does that all add up ??
