Ford frames are designed to flex a little aren't they? My guess is they forgot to unlock the tail gate. Haha!!

They also overloaded the F250 in the bumper sag. 2400# plus 400# on the hitch. Duh it's gonna sag! I call clever marketing BS!

GM is doing their homework. All the naysayers of the last test frequently mentioned the altitude issue. This time testing was done at the altitude that was supposed to equal things out.

Can't wait for the nest round!

Maybe they could do their homework in business economics and pay me (and everybody else) back our goddamn tax dollars. If I could operate my buisness without pryor debts you should see the **** I would build. Its all a bunch of marketing bull**** that is getting old. Lets see the truck that is still doing it at 200K miles on up.

If you watch those videos from any manufacture and believe what they are saying you are crazy.

I not making excuses. all the big three have produced vehicles that would meet the needs of 99.9% of the people. One thing to consider is the ford is approximately 200 lbs heavier also do they state what gear ratio the trucks have. That alone makes a huge difference in acceleration.

I love my Ford truck and the 6.7. That being said, if you believe the new Duramax isn't more powerful across the entire powerband you are drinking some koolaid. GM has a good proven powertrain that is outperforming the new Powerstroke. I bet the Ford Engineers are working overtime trying to overcome this for the 2012-2013 model.

Looks like GM is really working hard to improve their products. All they need to do is redesign their interior and their truck would be a tough package to compete with.

Just two years ago, the frame test would have been vastly different. Looks like GM took a play out of the Ford F-150 playbook when they bashed the Tundra for its non-boxed frame (their frame looks very similar to the F-250s, just lighter duty).

I wonder how long it'll take me to stop seeing GM as socialist government owned entity. Maybe when that happens I'll take another look at their products, until then I don't care if GM puts out a 600 hp motor that'll go 500k miles with out oil changes, it's Ford for me baby.

It's good to See GM is so lame they had to start doing Infomercials. So I did some looking and found the chevy weight is 1000# less. Of course it going to be faster. Still take my ford over a chevy any day

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed how GM continues to do tests that have them on top every time. Now I'm not saying that GM isn't a good truck....the Duramax Allision combo is great....but I feeling GM is constantly trying to prove it....but maybe it's just me.
