You’ve probably seen videos of diesel truck and SUV owners having tug-of-wars to determine whose rig is the most muscly. There are multiple factors which can affect how these tug-of-wars play out, but a lot of it is down to traction.
Traction is what we’re assuming helped the 6.6-liter Duramax-equipped Silverado in the video below win a tug-of-war with a semi-truck. The first time we watched this video we expected the Chevy to get dragged around the parking lot with ease, but we were pleasantly surprised when we saw the semi getting out-powered by a measly three-quarter ton pickup.
The Silverado appears to have a lot of weight in the bed and according to a bystander in the video, it’s also got “$15,000 worth of engine work.” As the semi fruitlessly spins its rear tires due to lack of traction, the Chevy slowly tugs the huge transport in its direction. Check it out in the video below, but if you’re at work you might want to wait until your home, there’s some choice language near the end.
