The heavy truck wars have built up over the past months to the boil. RAM released its latest offering late last year; Chevrolet promised best-in class performance last month with no special features; and Ford triggered a new monster diesel truck world. Now Chevrolet manufacture cars has finally opened the floodgates and published the final makes pay for the new diesel: a mind-boggling 397 HP and 765 pounds-feet of torque, it’s new 2011 Chevrolet Duramax.
If you count that is Chevrolet automaker are keeping (and by extension, GMC) has the war makes, but not the rising war won. While the 6.7 L of Cummins diesel under the RAM HD hood makes an impressive 350 HP and 650 pounds-feet of torque and Ford’s new 6, 7 liter power stroke diesel a breathtaking 390 HP and 735 pounds pounds-feet of torque, Chevy new 6.6-liter Duramax wins the power was even more mind-blowing 397 HP and 765 pounds-feet. This is an improvement of 32 HP and 102 pounds-feet of torque over the last 2011 Chevrolet Duramax.
On the front of gasoline is a different story. 2011 Chevrolet Duramax 6.0-liter V-8 makes a respectable 360 HP and 380 pounds-feet of torque, but the RAM 5.7-liter V-8 makes 383 HORSEPOWER and 400 pounds-feet. Here Ford comes but the winners with 385 HP and 405 pounds-feet of torque. The order changes again, if it functions. RAM falls 17,600 pounds back to the third with 5130 pound payload and towing capacity. GM comes in second with 6335 pound payload and 20,000 pounds pulling force. Ford climbs back to the top of the heap with 6520 pounds payload and tow 24,400 pounds. Even if you take the top shelf F-450 model, the F-250 WINS with 21,600 pounds towing capacity.
