Tug of War Between VW Touareg V10 and Chevy Silverado Has Predictable Outcome

Doing a tug of war looks like it`s a lot of fun, especially when the vehicles involved are very different, and even just before the start, you sill have no idea which way it will go – literally. This video shows a Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI, which is up against a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck.
The Touareg’s V10 engine pushes out 310 hp at 3,750 rpm, while maximum torque is 750 Nm, and it arrives at 2,000 rpm. The Silverado, on the other hand, is even more powerful, and its engine, a Duramax V8 turbo diesel unit, makes 365 hp and 894 Nm of torque.

However, the Chevy pickup seems to be at a clear disadvantage, as it seems to only have rear wheel drive – a big disadvantage in a tug of war competition, where both traction and power are important.

We will not spoil it for you, but the outcome, to us at least, was a predictable one…
