2015 Midsize PickupTruck Challenge: V-6 Acceleration, Empty

We tested our four challengers on the same day, at the same track (Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Ariz.), with the same test equipment and the same driver (and his test procedures). Since we had all V-6 engines, spinning tires was not much of a problem for these pickups, but much of their success was based on tire grip and transmission software mapping. Interestingly, there was still a pretty good separation between the players.
