The victory was certain - with Dodge revving its Challenger SRT Demon onto the track, mocking its competitors with a monstrous growl. It was a V8 powerhouse, destined to win a first place at the podium; and all other platforms would have to battle for a (distant) second. There was no other possible outcome.

Ford seems to embrace the impossible.



According to Motor Authority, the 2018 F-150 Raptor was recently pitted against Dodge’s SRT Demon. This race - deemed a farce by critics - was meant to test each platform’s quarter-mile capabilities. None expected a pick-up to perform well… but it did.

The 2018 Raptor blazed past the competition - including the Demon. Boasting a 3.5L V6 engine, this truck roared down the lane in a mere 12.49-seconds, leaving a trail of exhaust and surprise in its wake. How could this have happened?

The answer lies in Ford’s recent aftermarket tuning. The Big Blue Oval has transformed its F-150, fusing it with a new air intake system, a methanol injection tank, and a sport-tuned suspension. When these elements combine, they promise a PSI increase of 18 - fully maximizing the twin-turbo engine. This allows the Raptor to deliver powerful accelerations and ensures a record-breaking quarter-mile.
