CAN $70,000 OF ALL WHEEL DRIVE BEAT A HELLCAT?: FORD RAPTOR VS DODGE DURANGO SRT VS DODGE CHALLENGER HELLCAT DRAG RACE

CAN $70,000 OF ALL WHEEL DRIVE BEAT A HELLCAT?: FORD RAPTOR VS DODGE DURANGO SRT VS DODGE CHALLENGER HELLCAT DRAG RACE

In this hard-charging video, the guys from TFLcar took to the drag strip to see which $70,000 all-wheel-drive vehicle would win in an all-out drag race. Andre showed up in a brand new Ford F-150 Raptor to race Tommy in a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT. The winner of that race had the opportunity to take on Roman in his burnout-prone 2016 Dodge Challenger Hellcat.

So, what do you think, shich one wins in a good old-fashioned drag race? At start let’s meet contenders :

FORD F-150 Raptor

Andre’s Ford Raptor packs a high-output 3.5L EcoBoost twin-turbo V6, making 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. Despite making good power, it’s not a lightweight, tipping the scales at a whopping 5,697 pounds.

2018 DODGE DURANGO SRT

This brand new Durango SRT packs a more traditional powerplant, a naturally-aspirated 6.4L Hemi V8 that makes 475 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Like the Raptor, power is sent to all four wheels. Unlike the Raptor, the Durango makes due with only an 8-speed automatic. Despite that, the Durango has a rather aggressive “Launch Control” to help get a quick start in a drag race. However, this proved to be unnecessary as its lighter 5,369 lb curb weight, plus the power advantage made the Durango an easy win in this drag race.

2016 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

I think we all know what this monster mopar machine is packed with, but if there is someone who doesn’t, here are the specs: V8 engine, 370 cu in, 6166 cc. Power: 707 hp @ 6000 rpm. Torque: 650 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm. Top speed 199mph and reaching 0-60mph in 3.6 sec.

TAKING ON THE HELLCAT FOR DRAG RACE GLORY

As the winner of the first drag race, the Durango SRT then squared off against the Dodge Challenger Hellcat. As we all know by now, the aptly-named Hellcat has a supercharged 6.2L Hemi that makes 707 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to the not-quite-wide-enough rear wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission. While the Hellcat would surely win with a 1/4 mile drag strip, our 1/8 mile may prove short enough to give the Durango a slight advantage. It all comes down to the driver on this one.

Does the Durango take advantage of the short track? Or does the Hellcat simply have too much power to lose? Be sure to watch the whole video above to find out!
