Haul it all with a used Chevy Tahoe

For when you simply can't afford to downsize, there's the Chevrolet Tahoe. Sure, subcompact this and small-crossover that are all the rage this days, but some of us just don't have the luxury to give up an entire row of seating for the sake of trendiness. When you have a large family -- or a large boat -- to haul, there are only a select few vehicles on the family-vehicle market that can meet your particular needs.

Why Your Truck Is Slower Than a Ferrari

You probably have accepted the fact that your truck is built for work and heavy-hauling, not for speed. It doesn't handle like a racecar, and it would not perform well in a drag race against one either.

But why?

This episode of DNews explains the science behind how engineers make cars go faster in its typical humorous style.

As a truck driver, you're already aware that a vehicle's speed is not all about shoving a bigger engine under the hood. An average Chevy Silverado configuration easily makes over 400 horsepower, more than double the ponies pushing a…
