Tug of war: Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Silverado vs Dodge RAM

January 27, 2022 by

It’s time for an almighty American tug of war. 

Mat’s kicking off this video in the Chevrolet Silverado, and he’s going up against the Ford F-150 Raptor.

Now of course, when it comes to a tug of war it’s all about pulling power, so let’s look at the stats. Starting with the Chevrolet Silverado, it’s powered by a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 that can deliver 420hp & 624Nm of torque. It’s pretty heavy too, as you can imagine, weighing in at 2,600kg.

Next up we have the Ford F-150 Raptor. It’s hiding a 3.5-litre twin-turbo V6 under the bonnet that can put down 450hp & 691Nm of torque. Its weight is also pretty identical to the Chevy. So with that in mind, you might think the result is a foregone conclusion.

Well hold your horses because we have a third challenger, a Dodge RAM with a 6.7-litre straight-six diesel engine. Its power may be down compared to the F-150, at 420hp, but it has 1,457Nm of torque.
