Last week we posted the first part of our most recent comparison test, the 2014 Ultimate Heavy-Duty Challenge.It focused on the three-quarter-ton pickup truck segment. The Ram 2500 HD, with its new 6.4-liter Hemi, upgraded interior and rear coil springs, did a masterful job of showing us how much better it is than the competition.
On Monday we'll post the second installment of one of the most comprehensive heavy-duty pickup comparison tests we've ever conducted. In this part, one-ton dualie turbo-diesels will strut their stuff. With thousands of points on the line, 25 different scored categories and three competitors, this is our test to end all tests.
We took the 2015 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the upgraded Power Stroke (now with a dedicated exhaust brake button), the 2015 GMC Sierra 3500 HD with the Duramax (also with an improved exhaust brake) and the 2014 Ram 3500 HD with the newly rated Cummins engine and let them battle it out for HD pickup supremacy.
Look for the full story next week.
