2012 Chevrolet Silverado HD
My next vehicular choice is at the opposite end of the automotive spectrum. Everyone needs the services of a pickup from time to time; there’s no way I’m cramming a washing machine in the Ford GT or hauling a load of firewood in the S8. Thankfully the Chevrolet Silverado HD is a truck down to its fully boxed, ladder-frame bones. For heavy-duty towing and hauling the GM T900 can’t be beat.
It may not be the prettiest or most fuel-efficient vehicle on the road but it’s a workhorse par excellence. When equipped with the optional 6.6-liter Duramax diesel engine the Silverado HD has enough axle-twisting torque to rip giant sequoias out by their roots and stop the earth’s rotation. These are reasons enough to keep one around, plus, of course, they have room for a new Whirlpool.
