For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/tag/duramax/">Duramax</a>-powered Silverado HD takes on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/volkswagen/touareg/">Volkswagen Touareg</a> V10 <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/tag/tdi/">TDI</a>.<br /><br />Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/dodge/">Dodge</a> versus Chevy video with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backward. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.<br /><br />It just goes to show, though, that big tires, tacky fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect since the Touareg V10 TDI has <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2006/11/22/touareg-v10-tdi-tows-a-747/">towed a Boeing 747 in the past</a>.<br /><br /><a href="/2012/12/30/silverado-hd-touareg-v10-tdi-face-off-in-diesel-tug-of-war/#continued">Scroll down</a> to watch the cargo-hauler tie up with the family-hauler.<p><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/30/silverado-hd-touareg-v10-tdi-face-off-in-diesel-tug-of-war/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Silverado HD, Touareg V10 TDI face off in diesel tug-of-war</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/2012/12/30/silverado-hd-touareg-v10-tdi-face-off-in-diesel-tug-of-war/">Silverado HD, Touareg V10 TDI face off in diesel tug-of-war</a> originally appeared on <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Sun, 30 Dec 2012 19:01:00 EST.
