When looking at the lifted Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty with a 6.6L Duramax diesel engine and stacks, you’d think that it would have the fortitude to beat any unassuming crossover in a pull. That’s probably true, unless that vehicle is a Volkswagen Touareg equipped with a V10 TDI engine and all-wheel-drive. It’s a crossover that possesses 553 pound-feet of torque.
After a brief struggle, featuring some hopping, clunking, and snapping, it’s clear who wins. While the ending result isn’t nearly as reckless as the Cummins Ram versus the Silverado HD V8 dually that took place in Oklahoma (nobody was dragged around a parking lot), we would like to see the Chevy win a pull or two. At least it can still lay claim to being a fantastic truck from the factory.
