However, in spite of being quite powerful and mammoth in size, it has the pickup needed to lap up long distances quite effortlessly. Therefore one can hope that it will be able to clear the 60 mph barrier in 7.4 seconds and reach the 86 mph barrier within 15.8 seconds. It will well and truly leave behind almost the entire competition behind when it comes to speed and power. The only model which perhaps can come close to it could be the GM2500 HD trucks.
