When it comes to building a truck that is meant to go off-road, Ford is certainly among the best in the business. The F-150 Raptor basically ushered in this era of capable pickups coming out of OEM factories, and remains a highlight in the segment. Based on the knowledge gained from building the F-150 variant, Ford unveiled the Super Duty Tremor line of off-road ready 3/4-ton and full ton pickups last summer. While there is no doubt that the Blue Oval made these trucks perform when the pavement ends, we now know what happens when a Ford F-250 Tremor hits the racetrack.

Leave it to the folks over at Motor Trend to put a nearly four-ton behemoth of a pickup truck on the dragstrip. The 2020 Ford F-250 Tremor in question was equipped with the third-gen 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel, which produces 475 horses and a ridiculous 1,050 lb.-ft. of torque. Those four-digits worth of torque shove the Ford F-250 Tremor to 60 mph in just 7.2 seconds, before flying down the quarter-track in 15.5 seconds. While wearing a set of 35-inch off-road tires.That might not be a record breaking run, but it does prove the diesel-equipped Tremor will outrun its 7.3L Godzilla V8-equipped sibling in Motor Trend’s testing.

That is, unless they get the new Whipple supercharger package, of course.

The Power Stroke might be a heavy lump of a motor, but the torque it produces is just too much for the gas-powered Godzilla V8 to keep up with. In factory spec, the 7.3-liter V8 engine has an output of 430 horsepower and only 475 lb.-ft. of torque. Despite being down on power, trucks equipped with both engine options share the same maximum towing capacity of 15,000 pounds when using a conventional trailer, and up to 21,900 pounds for gooseneck trailers.
