At about 2:00 in, Andre does a pretty casual 0-60 test using the computer stuck to the windshield. Gets roughly a 6.9 in both trucks.

Car & Drivers techniques for measuring the 0-60 are abit more scientific and detailed than how TFL does theirs, haha.

I figure the traction control must be stepping in big time. With the 470 lbft of torque, I'd imagine the new truck would simply spin the tires if you look at it wrong.

I'd want to see the 0-60...

I loved the 5.4L 4v mod in my Mustang. Man, I still have dirty thoughts about how that engine sounded with long tube headers, no cats and an xpipe. Dirty, dirty thoughts.

It's a joint GM/Ford transmission, but Ford is hitting the streets on it first. I believe you'll be able to get the 2017 F150's with the 10 speed by this fall.

GM is going to have to step up big time, it's hard to compete with the broad torque curve from the turbos. You really have to rev up the 6.2L to get into the meat of the torque band.
