Ford Expedition Runs a 13.3 with EcoBoost Power: Truckin Fast Wednesday Presented by Nitto Tire

By -

Watch this tuned Ford Expedition run a 13.3-second quarter mile with EcoBoost power – allegedly making it the quickest of its type in the world.

This week’s Truckin Fast Wednesday video comes to us from the YouTube channel of SSi Performance Tuning and it features what is allegedly the world’s fastest Ford Expedition with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. A quick search around the internet failed to turn up any other late model Expeditions with an EcoBoost engine running better quarter mile times, so we are inclined to believe that this claim is legit.

We should also point out that few people go racing with their Expeditions and even fewer modify them to run quicker quarter mile times, so this isn’t a title that many people are chasing – but this owner has claimed it.

Expedition VS C7 Corvette

The video above shows a quarter mile battle between a 2015+ Ford Expedition and a C7 Chevrolet Corvette. In stock form, the big Ford SUV packs 365hp and 420lb-ft of torque while tipping the scales at nearly 6,000 pounds while the Corvette has 455hp, 455lb-ft of torque and weighs about half of the weight of the Expedition.

The key advantage is that the Expedition has four-wheel-drive, allowing it to make better use of all of its available power while the Corvette has to work to get traction. When you add the extra power from tuning the twin turbo engine to that AWD advantage, you end up with a surprisingly quick 3-ton SUV.

We understand that the video quality is poor, seemingly being filmed from the very first camera phone ever, but it shows a Ford Expedition holding its own in a quarter mile clash with the Vette. When the race begins, the big Ford SUV blasts away from the line with a decent lead over the Corvette. As the race goes on, the Chevy sports car passes and takes the win, but the important part here is that the SUV runs a 13.3 at 99.05 miles per hour – making it the fastest EcoBoost Expedition in the world.
