The Toyota Tundra towed a space shuttle. Sort of.
Okay, not really.
In what was a brilliant marketing ploy and an exceptional illusion of capability, the Tundra, and its official 10,000-pound tow capacity, towed a 300,000-pound space shuttle over a Los Angeles bridge. The trick to the feat was a specially engineered tow rig the space shuttle sat on.
If you are fond of your U-joints, transfer case, transmission and the overall integrity of your truck’s frame, you’ll avoid any space-shuttle towing.
But the 2013 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty will be just one zero away from space-shuttle capacity.
