PickupTrucks.com Pits V-6 Pickups in 3-Way Shootout

Like Rodney Dangerfield, V-6 two-door pickup trucks get no respect: Over the past decade, almost all of the significant power, fuel economy and technical advances have been made to V-8-powered trucks. These changes have left regular cab, six-cylinder haulers in the dust — until now. PickupTrucks.com and USA Today recently tested the base engines that propel the anonymous two-door, short-bed fleet and work trucks you pass by every day. Mike Levine, Mark Williams and James Healey gathered three 2011 V-6 entry-level pickups from Ford, GMC and Ram for PickupTrucks.com’s first V-6 Light-Duty Work Truck Shootout.
Check out their stories and see which truck wound up in first place.

GM is still making that 4.3 V6!? This is why you don't want the Gov running anything. Geez!

My vote is for GMC!
