The new SAE Towing Standard J2807 , will go into effect with the 2013 model vehicles

The rating can't be skewed by each companies engineers
they will all have to conform to the J2807 Standard

so you will be able to actually compare vehicles, like the 1/2 ton model pickups
Ram 1500, GM 1500, Ford 150, etc. against each other using this towing standard

This document establishes minimum performance criteria at GCWR and calculation methodology to determine tow-vehicle TWR for passenger cars, multipurpose passenger vehicles and trucks. This includes all vehicles up to 13 000 lb GVWR. It is recommended that the performance requirements within be adopted for all vehicles with model year designation 2013 or later.

It is about damn time too
