Most of us don't have to worry about how we're going to tow our horses to the dressage competition or whether our vehicle has enough grunt to haul the speedboat up to the lake.
Those who do fret about such things are still liable to choose a Chevrolet Silverado pickup with special towing capabilities. Toyota's Tundra pickup is making strides in this competition, with a 5.7 liter engine to Chevy's 6.2 liter. Either can carry about a ton of cargo.
The key metric for customers considering these vehicles is maximum towing, 10,700 pounds for Silverado versus 10,400 for Tundra. (Don't overlook Ford's F-Series or Nissan's Titan, both of which are also strong contenders.)
