Ram 1500 TRX and Ford F-150 Raptor - Heavy-duty American pickups fought in drag [Video]
Very powerful American pickup trucks Ram 1500 TRX and Ford F-150 Raptor fought in a drag race for the first time in history.
YouTube channel The Fast Lane Truck has posted a video featuring the very powerful Ram 1500 TRX and Ford F-150 Raptor pickups, which competed in a drag race. According to Motor1, these cars have not been seen on the track before.
The RAM 1500 TRX is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops over 700 horsepower. The engine is powered by an upgraded eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel-drive system specifically tuned for off-road driving. Acceleration to hundreds takes 4.5 seconds for the car.
Its competitor, the F-150 Raptor, is powered by a more modest 3.6-liter EcoBoost V6 twin-turbo engine. Unit power - 450 horsepower. As a result, the Ram 1500 TRX pickup did not leave the slightest chance for the brainchild of Ford.
However, the F-150 Raptor was able to win over the Ram Rebel model on the same day. This pickup is equipped with a 5.7-liter engine with a capacity of 390 horsepower.
In the near future, a giant six-wheeled pickup truck based on the Ram 1500 TRX from the American tuning company Hennessey may take part in the drag. The three-axle car is called Mammoth 6X6 and is equipped with a 7.0-liter V8 engine. This engine was developed by the Mopar tuning studio.
