This week’s Truckin’ Fast video features a 2011 Ford F-150 racing on the quarter mile against what looks to be a 2006-2010 Mustang GT.
The Ford Ranger remains a favorite, despite the rise in popularity of full-size trucks. There is just something inherently appealing about a small, powerful, and 100% Ford rig that draws people in.

Ford sells a lot of pickup trucks! Last year, they sold a new F-Series truck every 43 seconds, and that was with slower production due to the new F-150 retooling.
