Modern car and truck engines produce a lot of heat. In an effort to control heat produced by high-performance engines, car makers include a number of design elements made to tackle these bigger and more powerful engines. One such innovation is called a dual-pass radiator.

While fairly effective, this approach does leave a little left on the table in terms of cooling-efficiency.
