Boosted F-150 Destroys a Lambo, Ferrari & Challenger!
Supercharged 5.0-liter V8 makes this F-150 a 10-second quarter-mile machine at nearly 130 miles per hour.
This week’s “Truckin’ Fast Wednesday” video comes to us from the Bigg Redd-85 YouTube channel and it features a newer Ford F-150 tearing up the quarter mile. This footage was captured at a YouTube racing event at Cecil County Dragway, so it was chock full of very fast cars, some of which are driven by very slow drivers. Fortunately, this half-ton Ford packs big power and a driver who knows how to use it, allowing this F-150 to beat a wide variety of high performance cars while covering the quarter mile in the high-10s.
Supercharged V8 Power
There are no details on this Ford F-150 XL, but it is clearly powered by the modern 5.0-liter V8 that has been upgraded with a supercharger. It likely has some other supporting modifications such as a beefed-up fuel system and we can see that it has drag radial tires on all four wheels, so this half-ton Ford has been built to get down the drag strip in a hurry.
It should be noted that this truck is an XL, meaning that it is a base model trim level with the optional V8 and four-wheel-drive system, but as modern Ford trucks go, this is the smallest and lightest, making it the perfect platform for a street-and-strip truck. In the video, it shuts up everyone who questions why the owner chose a truck over a performance car.
The video begins with a seemingly unrelated burnout by a Dodge Challenger, but after that, the focus is on the supercharged Ford F-150.
The first race takes place against a Lamborghini Huracan and while the truck gets out of the hole in a hurry, the supercar seems to have problems getting through the gears. As a result, the F-150 gets the easy win with a 10.92 at what looks like 129.33 miles per hour.
Next, the boosted Ford truck takes on a Dodge Challenger and beats it so badly off of the line that they don’t bother showing the rest of that run. Each of the runs after the Challenger against the poorly-driven Lamborghini and in both cases, the supercar doesn’t leave the line while the F-150 hands out a beating. On those two runs against the Huracan, the truck runs a 10.91 and 10.90.
The best race of the video comes at the end, with the Ford F-150 taking on a Ferrari 458. As is the case on every run, the truck gets out first while the car struggles to catch up, but the Ferrari was just too far behind on the start, running a losing 11.78 to the truck’s 10.86.
