anyone catch this, im not sure why they put up the f450 against the ram and silverado 3500. Pretty lame competition IMO but entertaining. The Dodge looked pitiful though.

Thought it was funny the Chevy had to back up to spin the tires and Ford did circles around the guys. The hill clime could have been better had the guy not spun the tires all the way. Also the Race they did had he not spun the tires on take off Ford would have had it all the way .. It was a give away to all three I say..
The ram was pathetic .

You will laugh when you see them do the tire spin . The Chevy was a joke the ram same thing damn with some spin . The train pull was good and you will see how if the Ford had not spun on the race he would have had him all the way. Did good on almost catching the Chevy at the end to.

The pro driver if he wanted to win should have actually did a 4wd boosted launch I know he knows how to drive but he did the same thing with the rally car too

I thought the 2011 F-450 Ford had 350 HP and the F-350 had the 400HP and 800tq.
Did they change it? It was funny and didn't prove anything.

I'm just glad that Tanner drove the Ford! I must say though, the "testing" was an absolute joke. They should have made all three trucks do the same tests, that way they can actually see which truck performed better during the SAME challenge. I agree though, it was more for ratings than an actual proper testing of the trucks, and their capabilities.

I loved what they did with the trucks.
Top gear doesn't ever really do "real world" tests IMO. It's more for fun and publicity.

It did more for Ford than anything. Because more was said about the Ford being a good truck than any other.

The Ram did HORRIBLE. I laughed my butt off when they did the drag race and the burn out.

That's why they call it entertainment and they didn't offend our truck buyers in the USA. Going to watch episode now.

The Ford pulled a F***ing train.... beat that!! The "Ram" was WEAK!!haha go figure. And the Chevy winning the drag race is nothing, the truck weighs less then the Superduty, so EAD!!

I think that would make the best commercial for Ford. I'm pretty sure they just did everything as fun, more than a real test. The Chevy doing the "burn out" was funny. :hehe:

Im pretty sure the reason Tanner spoke so highly of Ford is because hes sponsored by them. I am glad he drove it, hes the only guy that can actually drive on that show. :icon_ford:

He might can drive but her sure can't make anything leave like it should he did the same crap doing a burnout with the rally car against the air boat as he did in the ford
