If you've been keeping up with our Facebook page lately, you've seen all the competitors from just about every angle and followed along as we published quite a few behind-the-scenes shots. As you can tell, we were busy and did tons of testing (and lets not forget all those sandbags and rubber mats we moved from truck to truck).
Our latest six-truck comparison test will likely go live at noon June 17 Eastern Daylight Time, barring any serious problems. For now, you'll just have to wait, but we do want to let you see how closely all the trucks matched.
We gave each manufacturer just four criteria: Each truck needed to be four-wheel drive, have four full-size doors, be able to carry at least 8,500 pounds and do it all for less than $45,000 (including destination charges).
Click here to see a pdf of a shortened comparison chart (we'll have the more exhaustive charts in the story) of how each truck compares to the others. We have no doubt some will be surprised by what certain truck makers sent. Feel free to make your predictions based on the specs. We'll have all the details from each competition in nine different stories, each focused on a different aspect of the contest. Readers just have to wait a little longer.
