Throwback Thursday: Original TFL Mashup with 2011 GMC Sierra 3500 Dually

2011 gmc sierra 3500 dually drag raceWelcome to the birth of the TFL mashup comparisons.  This video comes to us from November of 2010 and features a drag race between a 2011 GMC Sierra 3500 Dually and a 2011 Hyunday Sonata.  Yep, this is perhaps the two most unlikely head-to-head acceleration test.

This 2011 Sierra is showcasing a thorough redesign and a 6.6-liter V8 Duramax turbo-diesel engine with 397 hp and 765 lb-ft of twist.  The 2011 Sonata was also all-new that year and featured Hyundai’s new “fluid” design and a 200 hp and 186 lb-ft naturally aspirated four cylinder.  The truck weighs about two and half times more, but has nearly four time the torque.  Who wins this race?
