Since I was a kid I had a dream, to have a farm, I still have that dream of course, and who knows maybe one day it will come true. Working with cows, having beautiful black and brown horses, having some herd of sheep, maybe chickens and so on.
I imagine myself wearing a cowboy’s hat, wearing Australian boots, button shirt and riding a horse. But as you know a farmer needs a good, powerful and aggressive truck.
I will tell you a little bit about 5 trucks I prefer the most: Toyota Tacoma, Dodge RAM 3500, Fort F 150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500.
The Tacoma has a 2.7L 4 Cylinder in row with VVTi 160HP at 5200RPM and 245Nm/180lbFt and a 6 speed shifts automatic gear box or V6 3.5L with 280HP at 6000 RPM and 360Nm/270lbFt at 4600RPM and a 6 speed shift automatic gear box.

The 5.7L produces 383HP, the 6.4L produces 410HP and the 6.7L Diesel produces 350, 370 or 385 HP depends on the gear box. The Diesel engine has 3 levels of max torque, the version of 350HP has 660lb-ft/900Nm, the version of 370HP has 800lb-ft/1090Nm and the version of 385HP has 900lb-ft/1220Nm.
The Ford F150 has 5 kind of engines, four kinds of a V6 and one kind of V8. V6 Engines: (a) 2.7L V6, 325HP and 375lb-ft; (b) 3.5L V6, 375HP and 470lb-ft; (c) 3.5L 282 HP and 253lb-ft; (d) 3.5L V6 450HP and 510lb-ft. V8 Engine: 5.0L V8, 385HP and 387lb-ft.
