Motor Trend will announce the winner of its 2011 Truck of the Year award this weekend. The contenders include six heavy-duty pickups from Chevrolet, Ford and GMC.
The first three trucks that MT tested are three-quarter-ton, single-rear-wheel HDs with gasoline engines, including the 2011 Chevy Silverado 2500 and GMC Sierra 2500 twins powered by GM's 6.0-liter V-8 and the 2011 Ford F-250 Super Duty with the all-new 6.2-liter V-8 under its hood. The second set of trucks are one-ton dual-rear-wheel rigs, including the 2011 Chevy Silverado 3500 and GMC Sierra 3500 with the updated 397 horsepower, 765 pounds-feet of torque 6.6-liter LML Duramax V-8 and the 2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty with the all-new "Job 2" 400/800 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8.
We've already determined our Best Overall HD trucks during the 2010 Heavy-Duty Shootout and co-managed the awesome grudge match between the Silverado 3500 and Ford F-350 in the Rumble in the Rockies.
Which truck do you think will come out on top in Motor Trend's Truck of the Year competition?
