The Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD faces off in a Drag Race against the Ford Super Duty. The most curious thing is that it is not about any competition or anything like that, but about a video recorded by Chevrolet itself with which to extol the benefits of its model compared to that of the competition.

It is not usual that in the world of advertising you directly confront a product with that of the competition, right? That is why we find this Drag Race that we are going to talk about today so curious, which has faced the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD with the Ford Super Duty. For some case, the Silverado 3500hd headlights are same with the Chevy Silverado 1500 headlights.  It would be normal for the video that accompanies these lines to have been the idea of ​​any of those programs that we have at our disposal on YouTube with cars as a background. But no, friends, it has been Chevrolet itself that has carried it out. And yes, you can imagine without hitting 'play' who is the one who wins this race in which both vehicles tow a trailer of about 4,500 kilograms. Why not!

What we do not know is which version of the Ford Super Duty is the one that takes part in this curious race, in such a way that the Chevrolet model could have an advantage in this regard. It is not a matter of advertising the competition beyond what is necessary, of course. Of course, although the model of the oval brand is defeated in this curious comparison, in no case should anyone think that it is because it is worse or slower. There are so many determining factors that can occur in a test of this type and that we are unaware of...

In the case of the Chevrolet Silverado 3500HD, the version we are talking about is specified during the video, which is none other than the one equipped with the V8 6.6 Duramax turbodiesel engine with 445 hp. Also, as a curiosity, we see that two characters of the stature of Howie Long, American football star, and Eric Stanczak, a Chevrolet engineer, sit behind the wheel of both vehicles. In both races over a quarter-mile distance, the Silverado triumphs.

This advertising action may be explained by the good performance that Ford is having with its F-Series compared to the Silverado. The data indicates that the signature of the oval reached sales in America of 896,764 units, for the 585,864 of the Silverado. So, what better way to convince buyers to face both models with a favorable outcome for the one you want to sell, right?
