Ford has also published a few photos of the vehicle, so we now what to expect for the race. This announcement means that the pack of racers will be lead by the truck’s 365 hp turbocharged V6 unit, an engine that allows the vehicle to post a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) time of under 7 seconds, a very respectable time for a car of this size, especially considering that the unit comes with EPA figures of 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.

We see this as a move that aims to show that pickups are more than just workhorses and since modern times have gifted these cars with special features, we agree with this.
