It’s the American truck’s 770 horses versus the Italian bull’s 640

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has started appearing in YouTube videos lately and it looks as fierce in the real world as it did in the images and videos released by the automaker. It lived up to its ‘Raptor-killer’ name when it defeated the Ford F-150 Raptor in a drag race. However, another iteration of the F-150 by Shelby, monikered as the Super Snake Sport, recently beat the TRX in a straight-line race quite comfortably, thus leading a lot of us to believe that this is the next big thing.

With 770 horses under the hood and some serious performance figures matching it, the folks at Throttle House brought it to the drag strip once again; this time to take on a raging bull embodied in an SUV – the Lamborghini Urus. Can the F-150 Super Snake Sport prevail this time, too?

On paper, the Lamborghini Urus lacks in all the departments. The SUV comes with a 4.0-liter, twin-turbocharged engine under the hood that churns out 641 horses and 627 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to all the wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The SUV can sprint to 62 mph from a standstill in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph.

The Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport, on the other hand, is powered by Ford’s 5.0-liter, V-8 Coyote engine, but is supercharged and dishes out almost twice as much power as its naturally-aspirated counterpart. The truck has sprinted to 60 mph from rest in just 3.45 seconds and has also done a 0-100 mph dash in 8.3 seconds in the company’s tests.

As for the price, the Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport is a limited-volume truck, with only 250 examples available to purchase. It starts at $93,385. The Lamborghini Urus is a mass-production model that has brought in record sales for the Italian automaker and it starts at roughly around $200,000.
