    Default Chevy HD smokes Ford HD in Head-to-Head Test

    In short: Chevy blew Ford out of the water!
    Congrats to Chevy/GM on making another excellent HD Truck!

    Here are the test details.

    Thats awesome, but it still wont stop the ford loyalists from talking down on GM. I guess I'll just be polite and silently laugh to myself..

    Chevy HD stands for Heavy Duty, which it is, and the Ford HD stands for Harley Davidson, which Ford has as a trim package !!!!! ----nuff said, no wonder Ford can't really even advertise as a Heavy-Duty !!!!!
