Chevrolet finally updated its Silverado 3500HD last year to include a much-needed bump in performance to match rivals. The 6.6-liter L5P Duramax diesel engine produces 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque.
But, last December, Ford struck back with an updated Powerstroke that produces 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque. Still, Chevrolet insists its truck is the better bet, and Chevy trucks ambassador, Howie Long, helped to reiterate the fact with a friendly drag race.
The race is meant to mimic merging onto a highway with a 10,000-pound load behind both the 2018 Silverado 3500HD and the 2018 Ford Super Duty. This is Chevrolet content, after all, so take a guess at which truck wins the race.
Chevrolet also consistently highlights the truck’s ease of use and aims to reduce stress behind the wheel while towing. The brand believes the Silverado 3500HD is the least-stressful pickup to handle towing duty.
