2013 Ram 1500 HEMI Sport Takes on Tundra & the Ike Gauntlet Towing Test ( Episode 5 )



( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2013 Ram1500 Sport Crew Cab is a bad ass looking pickup. But will it tow as good as it looks? Watch this Ike Gauntlet episode 5 to find out.

The 2014 Toyota Tundra Pickup is built to tow. But is it better than the Ram 1500 We decided to find out by putting both pickups up against each other in a Mega Mashup Sequel. Once again both trucks tow the old Lincoln Continental Mark V Diamond in the Rough up one of the steepest and highest American Highways. From Dillion, Colorado to the Eisenhower Tunnel U.S. I-70 climbs 8 miles to a maximum elevation of 11,158 feet or 3,401 meters. That’s enough elevation and grade to test the most powerful of pickups. Is the Toyota Tundra up to the task of towing a over 7,000 pounds up to the top of the tunnel?

In fact according to Toyota this pickup can tow up to 9,600 pounds. That’s enough weight to need a commercial truckers license in most states. In this first TFLtruck Ike Gauntlet video review we test the truck up the Ike Gauntlet see how fast it will tow around 7,200 pounds of old American Luxury car plus people and gear 8 miles up a 7 percent grade to the Eisenhower tunnel with the help of our friend Kent from ( http://www.MrTruck.com ).

2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor 0-60 MPH Towing Review (Episode 8)



( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a capable and even useful pickup truck that can serve as an everyday drive. But it is far from perfect. In fact there are a number of areas that need improvement.

In Episode 8 of of this long-term test of the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor,we see how fast the Raptor sprint from 0-60 MPH and how fast it will do the same run towing the TFLtruck test boat.

The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is one of the baddest trucks in the land. It can tow 8000 pounds, seat 5 comfortably, haul all of your stuff and still race across the desert at over 100 MPH is perfect air-conditioned comfort. That’s why we at TFLtruck choose the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as our first long term test truck. Usually truck manufacturers supply us with pickups to test for a week at a time. We wanted to test the best selling truck in the land for durability and reliability which meant buying a Ford F-150. But not just any Ford F-150, the most powerful and the most off-road worthy version that Ford builds.

( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) The new 2013 Ram 1500 ST Crew Cab is a big, and beefy pickup built to haul a bed full of stuff and up to six people, while towing over 6000 pounds. In fact this pickup with the smaller 3.6L Pentastar has a towing capacity of 6400 pounds. But what does that mean in the real world where the tires hit the road. We decided to find out by putting the Infiniti QX56 to the TFLcar towing test. We hooked up a 6000 pound boat to the back of the 2013 Ram 1500 pickup to see how fast it would accelerate from 0-60 MPH @ 1 mile above sea level towing a ski boat. How did the big Infiniti QX56 fare? Check out this video to find out.
