Latest Half Ton Tow Test

Latest and greatest 1/2 ton tow test. Really impressed with the GM 6.2L - best overall performance, best towing performance, and best fuel economy unloaded and towing. That's tough to beat.

The mileage for the Chevy's and Ford both unloaded and towing is quite impressive. 22 MPG over a 170 highway course and 11 loaded is hard to believe. My trusty 06 F150 gets about 18 on the highway unloaded and and like 9 pulling my 5500 pound X2 rig (loaded for vacation).

I've been looking at Colorado's and they're rated at 23 MPG on the freeway. Not much saving there from a mid sized offering.

Some impressive numbers there. Not surprised that the 6.2 hauled arse.

It is also faster 0-60 LOADED than the unloaded Chev, Dodge and Toyota.

Most of them are still on the road today!










Too bad they never made it home...I'm sure their families miss them.
