Not that impressive considering a human being pulled a 200,000lb Boeing 747 a few years back. Once he got it moving it was easy for him. So Toyota's truck is only slightly stronger than a person.

Any Vehicle with 400 ft lbs or more can pull the shuttle along.

It's selling trucks I'm sure. Doesn't matter if it's real or not.

I think it is along the same lines as the commercials that show the difference in rear end gear sizes or brakes. Doesn't matter that they needed to over-engineer the parts to make them work. They look bigger, and people think bigger is better and that the parts will last longer.

Then there are those of us that know better and we don't drive sissy Tundras. We drive trucks that work, look tough and could pull the Shuttle and that Tundra together while the sissy Tundra driver is holding the brakes to the floor with the truck in park.

I backed someone's gasser/small boat the other day and realized how spoiled I am with a Duramax that moves/backs 20+k lbs of trailer....at idle, with no additional throttle needed.

I am almost 100% positive the platform the shuttle rides on is able to power itself..I don't see the point of this shit wagon infront of it..
