2015 Light-Duty V-8 Challenge: Acceleration, Unloaded
A lot can happen to pickup trucks in just a few years, especially in a segment as brutally competitive as half-ton four-door V-8 pickups. Sales are on a torrid pace and incentive wars are heating up. In the middle of all this, every one of the pickup makers are bringing out more new products and technology, the likes of which we've never seen before. The last time we got all the half-ton pickups together in 2013, we had one of the most competitive head-to-head battles we've ever conducted, and the previous-gen Ford F-150 won by a slim margin. This time, we invited each of the half-ton pickup players to submit their best 4x4 crew-cab V-8 pickup as long as the final price was less than $55,000. Within that price cap, manufacturers could equip their trucks however they wished. The competitors for this Challenge were: 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Z71 LTZ 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT (each GM had a brand-new 6.2-liter overhead-valve V-8 and eight-speed transmission) All-new 2015 Ford F-150 XLT 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn 2015 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Unfortunately, Nissan declined to participate, noting that it will be debuting a new Titan at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, which opens to the media Jan. 12.
