Chevy Silverado takes on Toyota, Ford & the Ike Gauntlet Mashup Towing Test ( Episode 3 )
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado is all new and
But is it better than the Toyota Tundra and the Ford F-150 EcoBoost? We decided to find out by putting all
three pickups up against each other in a Mega Mashup by having them tow the
old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the Rough up one of the steepest
and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower
Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or
3,401 meters. That's enough elevation and grade to test the most powerful
of pickups. Is the Ford F-150 EcoBoost up to the task of towing a over 7,000
pounds up to the top of the tunnel?
In this third TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the
Ike Gauntlet see how fast it will tow over 7,000 pounds of old American
Luxury car 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the
help of our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).

Chevy Colorado rock face
Went out for a small ride. This is the rock face at the top of Big Daddy. I
need high gears so when I flex out I don't have to torque to compensate.
