2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R vs Ram TRX // DRAG RACE & OFF-ROAD RACE

The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R ($146,005 starting in Canada, $109,145 starting in the US) and the Ram 1500 TRX ($108,790 starting in Canada, $83,890 starting in the US) are ready for some big, loud, supercharged drag races. While both of these trucks are more intended for off road Baja-type performance driving, Thomas and James couldn’t resist putting them beside each other on the drag strip. And after all, there may be one muddy surprise waiting after the pavement races.

Stats-wise, this should be an interesting set of races. The F-150 Raptor R has a mighty 700 horsepower, but the Ram has slightly more with 702 hp. It also has a slight torque advantage over the Ford, with 650 lb-ft compared to the Raptor R’s 640 lb-ft. However, the F-150 benefits from a significant weight advantage - being 400 lbs lighter - and a stronger power to weight ratio can do wonders for performance driving. We hope you enjoy the episode! Thanks for watching.

A huge thank you to @rubytherocket_ for lending us their TRX
