[QUOTE=trolls56;169260]I bet the Boss and even a GT keeps up with the ZL1.[COLOR="Silver"]

You need to pick up the newest issue of motor trend... That suspension cheby has cooked up is something else... Not saying I'm a fan of the Comaro, but on a track even the Boss can't keep up. Then on the ride home, a flick of a switch makes it feel like a caddy. Considering the difference in power, the Boss definitely held its own... Can't wait for an IRS Boss!

They just did a video. The Boss 302 did incredibly well for being over 100hp shy and well over 100tqs. But the brakes and suspension pulled the ZL1 on top. Strangely, in a 0-60, ZL1 is only a tad faster.

So, it's a Platinum SD F250 with a heated steering wheel. Guess the F250 SVT Raptor is next?

Ford has always been on the short end of the stick on suspension and HP.

I beg to differ.
In the past maybe, but not really anymore...

If President Obama and the state of California adopt higher gas mileage requirements, Ford's trucks, according to some academics, may be required to get as much as 62 MPG by 2025! While implementing this engineering feat may sound like a fanciful dream, the Ford Motor Company has been working on building powerful, fuel efficient fossil-fuel burning vehicles since 2006. Fordís EcoBoost Technology has been largely responsible for their ability to produce trucks that are fuel-efficient. EcoBoost technologies include direct injection systems, turbocharging, and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) engines.

However, EcoBoost is just one part of the equation. The second part of the equation responsible for increasing fuel efficiency are the new types of transmissions Ford is placing in their trucks. Fordís new model diesel trucks incorporate Alison transmissions. Alison is a highly respected company that is committed to designing and manufacturing transmissions that will enhance fuel economy and still provide the power and torque required by a work-truck. Indeed, Ford has invested a considerable amount of money on the design of a new eight speed automatic transmission. This transmission is exclusively Fordís own design, and is going to be built in the United States starting in December 2011. According to a resent Ford press release, their eight speed transmission will provide a 2 to 6 percent increase in fuel efficiency over their six speed transmission.

The combined effects of EcoBoost and these enhanced transmissions have allowed Ford to produce trucks incorporating engines with smaller displacements that have maintained their power and torque levels. The Ford F-150ís EcoBoost V6 engine can attain 365 HP at 420 foot-pounds of torque, which is comparable to the naturally aspirated V8 it replaced. In fact, because this v6 engine sports twin compact turbochargers, it produces 15% fewer carbon dioxide emissions, yields nearly 20% higher fuel efficiency, and produces greater torque and horsepower than the outdated V8. Still more impressive are the MPG numbers for the Ford F-150 integrating a 3.7 liter V-6 engine with EcoBoost to the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid. According to EPA estimates, the Ford achieves 16mpg city and 23mpg highway, while the Chevy hybrid receives 20mpg city and 23mpg highway.
