For the competition, Motor Trend brought the 2015 models of the Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado and the Ford F-150 to a 260-mile course starting in eastern California and ending in western Arizona. Each truck was evaluated with five criteria, including fuel economy, limit handling, tow testing, payload testing and standard testing.
