How quick is the most torquey 2018 Ford F-150 at 0-60 MPH acceleration? This truck is powered by the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Previously, TFL ran this F-150 against the Ford Raptor in a drag race, and the F-150 seemed to be slowing down after consecutive runs, although it was able to beat the mighty Raptor.
This time, we wanted to measure the acceleration runs and get the precise numbers.
The 2018 F-150 offers a great variety of configurations and capabilities. The 3.5L twin-turbo V6 in this truck is rated at 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. This is the most torque of any half-ton full-size pickup truck. The F-150 can also be configured with a 3.3L V6, a 2.7L EcoBoost V6, or a 5.0L V8. We are planning to test more versions of the F-150 in the near future.
One would expect any vehicle to show signs of strain during rigorous testing, and six consecutive acceleration runs is a tough test for any pickup truck.
With Andre behind the wheel, the truck in 4 wheel drive automatic (4A) mode, Sport driving mode, and traction/stability control disabled, the truck ran 0-60 times of: (1.) 6.60, (2.) 6.73, (3.) 6.64, (4.) 6.79, (5.) 6.90, and (6.) 6.63 at a mile above sea level at our test facility (IMI Motorsports).
The truck excelled under pressure of six consecutive runs. Check out the video below for all the details.
