As part of our 2015 light-duty challenge we've come here just outside Phoenix to wild horse pass raceway where we've taken five brand-new half-ton v8 pickup trucks to see which one is fastest.
Down the quarter mile here are the top three finishers in our acceleration testing the GMC sierra 1500 came in first place in unloaded testing with a 5.9 one second run down the quarter mile. That impressed our test driver to no end in fact that 6.2 liter v8 and eight-speed transmission was very impressive but only got second place in the quarter mile. With a 14 point three eight second run at 96.8 miles per hour the chevy silverado which ran a 5.92 just behind the winning.
GMC sierra also was very impressive in the quarter mile in fact hooking up just slightly better than the GMC sierra winning a first-place time a 14-point 34 seconds at 97.6 miles per hour in third place the ram 1500 laramie longhorn with a 5.7 liter Hemi ran a 6.68 still very impressive and strong enough to give it a 15-point one to finish in the quarter mile at 92 miles so those test results are just a part of our 2015 light-duty challenge for more tests information and who takes home the trophy to this competition go to pick up trucks category in this blog.
