C7 Corvette Z06 Outruns A Ford Explorer Police Car

In this exciting drag race from Wheels YouTube channel featuring the C7 Corvette Z06 and a Ford Explorer Police Car, we witness the undeniable superiority of the C7 Corvette Z06 over its predecessor.

The new C8 Corvette Z06 has made impressive advancements in almost every aspect, boasting more power, quicker acceleration, and improved aesthetics. However, it’s essential to note that the older Z06 is by no means a subpar car; even by today’s standards, the C7 generation of this supercar remains remarkably capable.

In this thrilling race, the C7 Corvette Z06 emerges as the clear winner, owing to its formidable 6.2-liter supercharged and intercooled V8 engine, generating around 650 horsepower. Even the top-tier Ford Explorer with its 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine struggles to match the extraordinary performance of the Z06.

Accelerating from 0 to 60 miles per hour (0-96 kilometers per hour) in a mere three seconds, the C7 Z06 exhibits its remarkable capabilities, boasting a top speed of 185 mph (298 kph). Despite the Ford Explorer Police Car facing a considerable disadvantage, it is still very cool to see a police vehicle taking on the drag strip.
