GMC Syclone/Typhoon is 4WD and is sub 6 seconds to 60. Getting a bit long in the tooth now though.

Dont think there is any new kind of GM performance truck at the moment.

Ford has a new Harley Davidson F150 coming out soon. Has an AWD option as well as 4x2.

http://www.fordvehicles.com/trucks/f150/harley/

The F150 is a nice truck. I almost bought a supercrew 5.4V8 last year but went for a Jeep instead.

Dodge do the powerwagon as per the link I already posted. They do do a performance truck, in fact the worlds fastest truck alledgedly in the form of the SR10. 500hp from a Viper V10 but its not 4x4.

http://www.dodge.com/srt-10/index.html

There is a Daytona special edition coming out that is in 4x4 but its the same 345bhp Hemi V8 as in any other Ram1500. http://www.dodge.com/ram_daytona/index.html

Personally I think if you want to go monster 4x4 truck then go the whole hog for a F250 Super Duty with a 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel. http://www2.forddirect.fordvehicles....rtner=fv&sZip=

Have to agree. Those 22" wheels do look puny.

You may be right.

Consumer Reports recently did a comparison test of the Ford F150, Dodge 1500, Chevrolet 1500 and Toyota Tacoma.

What they had to say about Tacoma buyers speaks for itself.'Consumer Reports'

I couldn't agree more, the only reason I have one is that I need a large vehicle to get all the money to the bank, it's all that profit that I make from the "more than generous" boat buying public!



Yer bit's are in the post, so is your bill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and the bill is in the bigger of the 2 boxes!

Lived my own Redneck fantasy the other weekend when I borrowed a Ram 1500 with a 345bhp Hemi V8 to haul away some logs. Just call me Bubba!
