Which 2017 heavy duty diesel pickup truck puts down the most power? This seems like an easy question to answer, but the real world is a whole different animal. We got together with the experts at ATS Diesel Performance in order to get the real numbers on their Mustang Dyno.
It's official. Our 1985 Chevy K10 "Big Green" project truck is getting a new engine! It's the Chevrolet Performance ZZ6 350 cu-in V8.
Big Green was powered by its original 305 cu-in (aka. 5-liter) Chevy V8. When new, this engine produced 160 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. That may be
Why pull a modern Toyota truck, a Hilux Double-cab pickup, with Toyota RC trucks (Tamiya Bruisers)? Because it's fun of course! If TFLtruck had the budget, we would pull our Ford Raptor all over the place. Granted, it would take (most likely) twice as many RC trucks as were needed
The 2017 Lexus GX460 carries on with minimal changes for 2017. Its tried and tested 301 horsepower 4.6-liter V8 makes 329 lb-ft of torque at 3,500 rpm.

TFLtruck purchased this 1985 Chevy K10 truck several months ago. We named it "Big Green", and the entire team fell in love with it. The truck looks mean with its suspension lift and Mickey Thompson tires. On the other hand, this truck is slow and quiet. The original 305 cu-in
Can the 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 6.2L V8 beat or match the 0-60 MPH time put up by the 2017 F-150 EcoBoost V6? Keep in mind that we do all of our testing at a mile above sea level (with approximately 17% less air density).
The big 6.2L EcoTec3
How does the 2017 Ram Power Wagon tow? This is precisely what we wanted to find out. The Power Wagon is based on the Ram 2500 HD platform, but it has a unique suspension setup with single-rate coil springs and Bilstein shocks that provide great off-road articulation and a relatively
