Truckin’ Fast Wednesday: Diesel F-250 Smokes a Cadillac CTS-V

By -


This week’s Truckin’ Fast Wednesday video features a recent-model Ford F-250 taking on a Cadillac CTS-V at the New England Dragway Street Night.

We don’t have any specific details on either one of these vehicles, and since the video description calls this truck an F-150 when it’s clearly a Super Duty, it shows that we wouldn’t be able to rely much on their info anyway.

Fortunately, we don’t need to know the facts to enjoy watching this big F-250 romp down the quarter-mile, specially when it seems like the Cadillac driver falls asleep at the line.

As soon as the lights go out, the Ford F-250 blasts off to a huge lead while the Cadillac barely moves at all. In fact, the camera eventually pans away and follows the truck to the finish line. The big diesel Ford rumbles down the track stopping the clock with a time of 12.756 seconds and a speed of 107.57 mph. The Cadillac runs a balmy 15.79 seconds at 92 miles per hour, leading me to believe that this CTS-V had some mechanical issues—or it isn’t a CTS-V at all.

In any case, this big Ford diesel pickup gets down the track in a hurry, so crank up your speakers and enjoy!
