Tow Ratings Finally Pass the Sniff Test - The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) - Automobile Magazine
(I know this is dated, but I believe that as of today, only Toyota has tested and revised their ratings to the "new" standard, and have been doing so since 2009....) Then again, I believe nothing of what I hear, only 1/4 of what I read, and at best, 1/2 of what I actually see. Every, and I mean EVERY, vehicle manufacturer (cars, trucks and motorcycles) has brazenly lied to me far too many times for me to take anything they say or publish without a huge grain of salt and tons of my own quantitative and anecdotal reasearch!
Never forget, guys, we can and do fall in love with our trucks... but there has never been and never will be a case of a truck falling in love with its owner!
