Pickup Pandemonium Drag Race – Supercharged F-150 vs. Turbo Chevy Cheyenne

October 28th, 2022

These pickup trucks are four-wheel drive behemoths. Nevertheless, they scurry down the track like pro mods. Let’s get a closer look at these Cowboy Cadillacs set to compete in a series of 1000-foot drag races.

The 2019 Ford F-150 is equipped with a 900hp supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. This example of America’s favorite truck tips the scale at 5000-pounds. The owner is claiming a stock (coyote) long block and a VMP 2.9-liter blower with an ice bath intercooler. The F-150 has a full interior (with a/c) and drag radials.

In the other lane is a 2010 Chevrolet Cheyenne with a 1000hp 6.2-liter V8 on turbo and nitrous. This heavy Chevy uses a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and weighs 4500-pounds. The turbo is a Borg-Warner 88-millimeter, and the nitrous kit is from Nitrous Outlet. The Cheyenne interior has been modified and it’s running racing slicks on all four corners.

These guys line up and – uh-oh! – the Chevy jumps early. That’s usually a disqualification but this time “a chase is a race” rules are in effect. The Ford will take the hit on the next pass.

This time, the Ford gets the early advantage, but the Chevy closes the gap and nearly drives around him going through the trap. The last pass will be heads-up. It should certainly be entertaining.
