Chevy's big Duramax Diesel Silverado grabbed a lot of attention this year with its imposing grille and its mind-boggling torque numbers.

If you've been looking for the perfect truck to haul your race cars to the track, Chevy has got exactly what you need in its latest Silverado HD. Behind that massive, autobot-like grille is a Duramax 6.6L Diesel that produces 445-hp and a gargantuan 910 lb-ft of torque. That's enough towing power to haul virtually anything you can think of and then some. Other features include strengthened cylinder blocks and heads, electronically controlled turbocharging system, bio-diesel compatibility, and a patent-pending vehicle air intake system that not only swallows air, but anything that gets in its way.
