Default Timeline of trucks

I found this pretty awesome infographic online from B&W Trailers that has American pickup trucks from all the decades with their models and engine size and horsepower. It has some cool info on towing and U.S.-made parts. Thought I'd share!

Did they really compare an F450's towing capacity with a Chevy 3500HD?
