2019 Ford Mustang GT Drag Races F-150 Raptor, America Wins

No, this isn't some kind of trick where the Ford F-150 has to be from point A to point B using an offroad route and the 2019 Mustang GT cover the same trim on asphalt. Instead, we're talking about a proper drag race between the two Blue Oval machines.

Why would anybody want to throw these two slabs of America at each other? Well, when it comes to YouTube, the correct question is "why not".

Sure, the two got together on a stretch of road that seems anything but fitting for the purpose, but the two didn't play any games. At least no other games than the good old three-horn one.

The twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost heart of the Raptor might deliver the same kind of power as the naturally aspirated V8 of the 'Stang, but the weight difference between the two is crusing.

And while the Raptor does pack an all-paw advantage, the drivers unfortunately didn't allow the pickup truck to take advantage of this. That's because the drivers didn't build up the revs for the starting phase of the race. Intead, they simply kicked it from idle.

Oh, and by the way, both machines came in factory stock form, with the Mustang sporting the Level One Performance Package.

Now, you might be familiar with the YouTuber behind this stunt. We're talking about vlogger Stang Mode, who happens to own a 2018 Mustang GT.

The afficionado has modded his pony, nicknaming it Black Mamba. The Coyote motor of the maching has been gifted with respectable mods, such as an E85 setup and yet the motor has remained atmospheric.

As we've shown you on multiple occasions, the Black Mamba has delivered spicy drag strip adventures and we're pretty sure things won't stop her - for example, here's the pony battling a 2018 Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody.
