It's drag race time: Durango SRT takes on F-150 Raptor and Challenger SRT Hellcat

Crazy choice of wheels, don't you think?

Under normal circumstances, watching grass grow would be much more interesting that witnessing a drag race between a Ford F-150 and a Dodge Durango.

However, things would be different if the performance variants of said models would be involved in a drag race. We're talking about the F-150 Raptor and the Dodge Durango SRT, obviously. Yes, we know one is a performance pickup truck built to drive fast over rough terrain while the other is a souped-up SUV that's pretty quick in a straight line.

While the Raptor packs a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine rated at 450 hp, the Durango SRT is motivated by a 475-hp 6.4-liter HEMI V8 powertrain. As a result, it should be a pretty even fight — we won't spoil it for you, so you'll have to watch The Fast Lane Car's video below.

The winner then went up against the 707-hp Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, which certainly has a tremendous power advantage but only one driven axle. Again, we won't give everything away, but we will tell you that they were surprisingly close.
