General Motors’ vice chairman in charge of global product operations is challenging crosstown rival Ford to a tug of war matchup. The challenge include two trucks that have yet to hit the market – the 2011 Chevrolet and GMC Heavy Duty and Ford’s 2011 F-Series Super Duty.
“You’re going to love our new diesel Duramax engine in the new Heavy Duty,” Stephens told PickupTrucks.com at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. He then went onto say:
“You know what I want to do to prove it? I want to take our truck and Ford’s [new Super Duty] and chain them together back -to-back. Then I want to have them pull against each other. I know our truck will beat theirs.”
PickupTrucks.com has forwarded the challenge to Ford and has offered its services to referee such an event in Texas. Will it take place? Only time will tell.
