I wonder why Ford is waiting so long to play catch up? My 2006 Duramax touts 360 HP and 650 lb.-ft of torque right now.
One thing that bothers me is that in this insane race to be "Best in Class" the big three keep upping their towing capacities just because of a few more horsepower, a little more torque, harder steel in the frame, etc.
The fact is that they are still 7000 to 8000 pound trucks with the same size wheels and brakes being called on to stop heavier and heavier trailers every year.
It won't be long before the GM, Ford and Dodge trucks will be touting Gross capacities well over 30K and someone is going to get hurt!
