The Super Ike Gauntlet is all about maxing out trucks on the World’s Toughest Towing Test – the Ike Gauntlet. This time, it’s the 6.0-liter Vortec’s V8 chance to tackle the 8 mile stretch of highway with a 7% grade on the way up to 11,158 feet above sea level.
This 2500 HD double-cab short bed 4×4 is powered by a 6.0-liter Vortec V8 that is rated at 360 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque. It’s backed up by a 6-speed automatic transmission. It has several optional packages, including the HD Custom package with 20-inch wheels, but this WT model still offers very good value at a final MSRP of $44,300.
