Ford Pickups vs. Performance Cars: Truckin’ Fast Wednesday Presented by Nitto Tire
A trio of wicked diesel-powered Ford Super Duty pickups rocket down the quarter mile.
This week’s Truckin Fast Wednesday video comes to us from the Wheels YouTube channel and it features three Ford Super Duty pickups taking on a selection of impressive performance machines on a quarter mile drag strip. While the diesel-powered pickups don’t win every race in this video, these big Ford trucks turn in solid times.
Super Duty Vs Hellcat
The first two clips show two different Ford Super Duty pickups taking on two different Dodge Hellcat cars. First, a white regular cab pickup with the 7.3-liter PowerStroke diesel takes on a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. The truck gets out to an early lead, but the sedan runs him down, running an 11.32 to the Super Duty’s 12.03.
The second race pits a black-and-white Super Duty with an extended cab against a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The Challenger gets out to an early lead, but the Power Stroke-powered pickup takes the win with an 11.03 to the Hellcat’s 11.36.
Super Duty Vs Corvette
The third race has the 7.3-powered Super Duty taking on a C7 Corvette Stingray. After an odd premature start by the Corvette, the two line up and take a second shot at the race. On that try, the Corvette gets out to a huge early lead and gets to the finish line first, although the Ford turned in a better elapsed time after the slow reaction time.
Ford Vs Ram
The next pair of races showcases a battle between a couple of diesel-powered rivals, with an all-white extended cab Super Duty taking on a long wheelbase Ram. The Super Duty wins both of these races, running about three-tenths of a second quicker than the Cummins truck on each run.
Power Stroke Duels
The final two races of the video have Ford Super Duty trucks going head-to-head.
In the first, the black-and-white truck takes on the all-white truck in a battle of diesel-powered extended cabs. The two-tone truck is much quicker and takes the easy win.
In the final run of the video, the 7.3-liter regular cab truck takes on the all-white extended cab, with the short cab Super Duty getting the win.
