The TRX has more horsepower than the Lightning (702 hp vs 580 hp) and weighs less, at 6,350 lbs. But with 650 lb-ft, the electric Ford has a big advantage. Remarkably, the TRX sets off quicker and looks like it has a chance, but the V8 behemoth is no match for the battery-powered F150 which quickly assumes pole position. We’re still impressed by how close it is; the mighty Ram finished the quarter-mile in 13.69 seconds at 104.1 mph.
Wearing two victories on its belt, can the F-150 Lightning fend off the R1T? Judging by the power figures, it’s unlikely. Rivian’s pickup is more powerful, with a hypercar-rivaling 835 hp and 908 lb-ft on tap – but it weighs more than the Ford. The figures don’t lie – the Rivian blasts off with incredible speed and crosses the line in 11.95 seconds at 111.7 mph, relegating the Lightning to second place.
It seems the Rivian remains undefeated – something that can’t be said about its towing skills.
