HEMI vs Vortec (my truck is faster than your truck LOL!)
Everyone needs a truck to haul the Race-Car to & from the track, right?...
well this is what happens when, the subject of "my truck is faster than your truck" pops up...LOL!!!
A 5.3 liter GMC 1500 X-tra Cab and a 5.7 liter 2500 Dodge Ram Reg Cab, go
at it... both with Cat-Back Exhaust
(Note: that the GMC has a total of three 180lb. to 200lb. passengers and
also has very large 285 series BFG All Terrain tires)
When these trucks were stock, they had an off-camera encounter and both
trucks were fairly even, with the 5.3 GM a little stronger down low and the
5.7 Dodge a little stronger up top, but the 5.3 Vortec outperformed the 5.7
Hemi in a 1/4 mile distance, but the Hemi was making a come-back by the end
of the race...

2014 / 2015 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel Review and Road Test

There's just something about a diesel pickup truck that makes grown men
regress into Tonka-loving children. Even my Prius-driving environmentalist
friends in Berkeley admit they secretly want a diesel pickup. The problem
of course is that diesel pickups are expensive (the cheapest diesel Ram
2500 is $36,975 and it doesn't have an automatic transmission, the cheapest
oil-burning F-250 is $38,250) and, for the majority of us, the high payload
and towing capacities are overkill. While economical in a specific sense,
the large diesel trucks aren't "fuel-efficient" either. Until now. Mark
your calendars folks, The 2014 Ram 1500 Eco Diesel is the half-ton truck in
America sporting a small diesel engine.
Although new in 2010 and refreshed for the 2013, the 1500 is undeniably a
Ram. That's because Chrysler prefers evolutionary rather than revolutionary
styling when it comes to their volume truck. That's not a bad thing, since
the 1994 style cues that have lived on were sexy back then, and still
attractive today. The big-rig front end still captures my attention, but
despite my family's Ram addiction, I find the 2014 Silverado's nose to be
the better looker. As with most redesigns, the front end got bigger,
brasher and has more chrome than ever before.
In 2007 GM purchased 50% of the Italian engine maker VM Motori. The logic
was that GM needed a smooth Euro compliant diesel engine for the Cadillac
CTS (and other models) in order to compete with the Germans. Sadly, GM
declared bankruptcy between the engine being designed and the engine
actually being used so it sat on a shelf. In 2011 Fiat bought the other
half of VM Motori and found the engine gathering dust. Fiat had some quick
tweaks done to the engine to make it more suitable for their use and the
EcoDiesel V6 was born. While there was much talk about GM getting their
hands on this same engine for Silverado duty, Fiat recently snapped up the
other half of VM Motri making this a Fiat/Chrysler engine in every way that
The high revving single turbo
aluminum-block V6 engine produces 240 horsepower and a stout 420
lb-ft of torque. If those numbers sound impressive, consider this. The
first 5.9L Cummins engine Chrysler used in the 2500 and 3500 series RAM
trucks produced 94 fewer ponies and 20 fewer twists. In the biggest
statement of progress I have seen in a while, that Cummins also delivered
its power via five fewer gears.
Like the rest of the Ram 1500 lineup (except for one model with a 5.7L
HEMI), all 1/2 ton Rams now use ZF's 8-speed automatic transmission. If
you're worried it's just a passenger car transmission that's not up to the
task, ZF's 8-speed transmissions are also found behind the insane twin-turbo V12s that the Germans love so much.
2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 takes on the Grueling Ike Gauntlet HD Towing Test
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The new 2015 Chevy Silverado 2500 with the 6.0L
V-8 is designed to tow. But how well will this new Heavy Duty GM pickup tow
when the road goes straight up and the air gets thin. We wanted to find out
so we maxed out the tow load at over 20,000 pounds and floor the pedal up
the TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet. Can a gasoline powered heavy duty pickup compete
with a turbocharged diesel engine? Watch
another Ike Gauntlet extreme towing test to find out.
