    Maybe if your drag racing, but when you're towing, torque is what maintains your speed when climbing hills or driving into a strong headwind.

    Well the long weekend is upon us and the test begins - towing my travel trailer on a round trip of about 700 kms - here's where I'll be comparing the Sierra's 5.3 L V8 and 6sp with 3.42 gear ratio with my old Nissan Titan's 5.6 L V8 and 5sp
