Volvo V70 CX vs. Chevy Truck: Tug of war

It's not unusual that sometimes two cars play the popular game of tug of war, standing one against the other tied with a rope, fixed on the rear of the car. Being careful not to remove the rear bumper, the cars drive in the two opposite directions, trying to tug the other.

In this case there are a Chevy truck against a Volvo V70 XC. The pick up is more heavy and more powerful than the Volvo, and it also got a bigger engine due to the V8 5.7L the Chevrolet Suburban was equipped in his ninth generation, produced from 1992 to 1999. The weakness of this truck, especially in a tug of war done on a wet blacktop, is that it is a rear-wheel drive, so all the 405 horse power are pushed by the rear wheels, where there is less weight.

On the opposite side, the Volvo V70 XC has the Haldex system, an All-Wheel drive that provide the drive only at the wheels that are in contact with the land and a special differential that allocate in the optimized way all the power to the four wheels. So, also if the engine is less power than an half of the Chevrolet's, the tug of war is not so predictable end it could hold surprises.
