Ford F-150 can humiliate the Camaro ZL1, Shelby GT350 and Hellcat in the quarter mile, and this is the test

The world of racing acceleration is very particular. This culture of the motor that lives its glory in the United States has much to say among the fans, organizers of events and, above all, the most burned.
So bringing together in the same shaker the passion for racing in a straight line with devotion for the pick up and shaking strong, we have a Ford F-150 able to pass the hand to the face to American sportsmen of the most grenade as the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, Shelby Mustang GT350 or Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat with relative ease.
How is it possible for a pick up to be so fast?
As it leaves the dealership, the Ford F-150 is a large truck equipped with the turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, which makes it a considerable device when stepping on the right pedal. Even more so if your presumed happy owners have chosen to equip it with the 10-speed automatic gearbox that drives both the 2018 Mustang and the latest generation of the Camaro.
If we also resort to a specialist like Brew City Boost (Wisconsin), to get more juice to the F-150 the result is simply spectacular. Modifications made to the engine are not specified beyond reprogramming, methanol injection, improvements in intake and a new exhaust line. The maximum power is not specified after the modifications.
In the end the best mark achieved by the retouched F-150 is 12.429 seconds to complete the quarter mile.
