Is it the Ram 1500 TRX or the Shelby F-150 Super Snake that takes the win in this drag race? In the video, we see the two pickup truck beasts battle it out on a straightaway track. One race is from a standstill. The other is a rolling start. Both races see the same result. Guess who wins this 700 horsepower Ford and Ram pickup truck drag race.
The video is brought to us by Throttle House. In this race between arch-enemy pickups, we see how the two trucks behave on the pavement. The true winner in terms of speed is clear. But the winner of the best truck between the two isn’t so obvious.
The Ram 1500 TRX
For years fans and owners of Ram trucks have patiently awaited their Hellcat-powered V8 pickup truck. It debuted in 2020 and it’s without a doubt one of the most exciting vehicles of a wild year for the auto industry. Like all TRX models, the one in the video employs a 6.2-liter supercharged V8. all four wheels receive 702 horsepower thanks to standard full-time AWD.
According to Road and Track, the Ram 1500 TRX reached 60 mph in only 4.5 seconds. That’s largely thanks to the torque-rich energy delivered through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Ram 1500 TRD 1500 has 650 pound-feet of torque according to the Ram website.
This truck has rugged power. Plus, it’s built to go fast over variable terrain which gives it an edge over Shelby’s F-150 Super Snake. One moment in the video shows the driver of the Ram pickup truck mention how amazing and upscale the interior of the TRX feels.
The Shelby F-150 Super Snake
In contrast, the Shelby F-150 Super Snake doesn’t get high marks for its luxurious interior. It’s quite a bit more basic than the Ram 1500 TRX in terms of luxury appointments. However, it’s really, really fast.
After modification by Shelby American, the F-150 Super Snake looks the part. A body kit, a brake upgrade, and fresh suspension pieces aren’t the only features bestowed by Shelby’s fine work. Under the hood, we see a supercharged 5.0-liter V8. This beast is capable of 770 horsepower and, according to Top Speed, 470 pound-feet of torque.
The Shelby F-150 Super Snake cranks it up to 60 mph in only 3.45 seconds. It’s a little lighter than the TRX. This unit is built for winning one pickup truck drag race after another. But who is the winner of the Ford and Ram pickup truck drag race? Here’s the video.
Feast your eyes on the winner of this Ford and Ram pickup truck drag race
If you watched the video, you see that the winner in terms of drag speed is clear. The Shelby F-150 Super Snake takes the win in the race from a standstill and the rolling start race. It’s an absolute speed serpent.
But the Ram 1500 TRX is no slouch. It easily jumps off quicker from a standstill with its torquey power. While the Super Snake takes the win in this Ford and Ram pickup truck drag race, it has to be taken into consideration that the Ford entry is actually a modified race truck from Shelby America.
The TRX comes ready to race straight from the Ram factory. So while the fastest truck in a drag race is clear to see, it’s not so obvious which is actually the better truck. We’re thinking the Ram might have actually taken this one overall.
