If you're shopping for a heavy-duty pickup truck for hauling or towing, the truck gods are smiling down on you in 2019, as Chevrolet, GMC, Ford and Ram all updated their big boys this year. To start to help you tip the heavy-duty scales in favor of one or another, our editors did a specs comparison of the monster V-8 engines of two of those trucks: the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500, and the 2019 Ram 2500 and 3500 — and the article more than pulled its weight, landing at No. 1 among our 10 most popular stories in February.

The Silverado (and GMC Sierra HD) boasts a direct-injected 6.6-liter V-8 making 401 horsepower and 464 pounds-feet of torque, while the Ram rocks a 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that puts out 410 hp and 429 pounds-feet of torque. Did one of the pickup's power plants overpower the other in our comparo? Follow the link to the story below and find out for yourself.

While Detroit trucks took the top spot, Toyota dominated the top half of February's biggest-stories roster, snapping up three of the top five spots. At No. 2 was our coverage of the 2019 Chicago Auto Show reveal of the refreshed-for-2020 Toyota Tundra. At No. 3 was our list of recommendations for how the new Tacoma — also bowing at the Chicago show last month — could improve even more beyond its refresh for the 2020 model year. And at No. 4 was our on-the-spot video review of the new Tundra in Chicago. Rounding out the top five, meanwhile, was our video taking you "Inside, Outside and Under the Hood" of the 2020 Ford F-250, F-350 and F-450.
