2020 Luxury Hauler VS GMC Dually VS World's Toughest Towing Test

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/16/2021

When it comes to hauling, some situations ask a lot of a tow rig. Just like any other vehicle, with these rigs, there is a lot to go shopping for. Tons of options exist in different applications will come together depending on the load at hand.

Picking one out might actually be a pretty tough decision. Just when we thought that picking out a regular daily driven vehicle was difficult, along comes a decision like this that has many more variants that could make anyone’s head spin.

This time, the guys over at TFLTruck take it upon themselves to compare a couple of tow rigs that really seem to stand up to the test. On one hand, we have a more serious rig. This is the 2020 Freightliner Luxury Hauler. As a dedicated towing machine, the big and bad truck looks like it’s ready to hit the road.

On the other hand, we have something that is a little bit smaller. The GMC Sierra dually acts as a street truck that could be comfortably driven anywhere. It might be a little bit more versatile than the Freightliner for daily driving purposes. The question at hand here is to see just how well it can tow in comparison to the machine that is a little bit more purpose-built.

By following along with the video below, we watch as the guys take the pair of trucks to Ike Gauntlet. It is said that this is the toughest towing test in the world. Now, in the vast majority of situations, we don’t think that many would end up putting this kind of strain on their towing beast. However, for those who haul around a heavy load regularly, perhaps this video is exactly what they’re looking for. In turn, it’s always nice to see a little bit of muscle at work in a truck.
