Heavy Equipment
Model year 2011 in the truck world is stamped Heavy Duty as each of the Big Three has released new HD iron over the past six months. New bodies, engines and transmissions are the order of the day, with payload and towing capacities climbing ever higher.

However, while some manufacturers love to be first to the media (Ford), others hold back until the last minute on news updates (Toyota). This roundup is as current as it can be, but surprises are always a possibility; and there already are a few.
