Video: Army Truck vs. Loaded Ford F-450
We are all used to seeing an endless stream of supercars, stock cars and drag strip kings racing each other in a straight line. If you’d rather watch something different, look no further than this race between an Oshkosh HEMTT army eight-wheeler and a Ford F-450 trailer towing three other cars.
Powering the Ford truck is a 6.7-liter diesel V8 pumping out 475 PS (468 hp / 349 kW) to a six-speed automatic transmission. The pickup weighs 12,700 kilos (28,000 pounds) and tows two army SUVs along with an elderly BMW sedan.
The second contender weighs in at 17,690 kg (39,000 pounds) and uses a 12.1-liter engine churning out 360 PS (355 hp / 265 kW) to a four-speed automatic transmission.
Watch the video until the end for a bonus scene (firetruck vs. man).
