Ford Super Duty Sets Guinness World Records Title
Ford snatched the Guinness World Records title back from General Motors recently by pulling the world’s largest flag around the Homestead-Miami Speedway during Ford Championship weekend. The title for the World’s Largest Flag Pulled by a Moving Vehicle was accomplished with a new 2017 Ford F-450 Super Duty pulling a 4,124 square foot U.S. flag. The previous record, held by the Chevrolet division of General Motors was with a 40×80 foot flag at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year. The 2017 F-450’s 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel V-8 produces a best in-class 925 lb-ft of torque and 440 horsepower, giving it ample grunt to carry an even larger flag for this record attempt.
“At Ford and with Ford trucks in particular we are used to being number one,” said Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group Marketing Manager. Towing the largest banner here today and setting the Guinness World Record in the category certainly fits with our DNA and what we are all about when we talk about Ford trucks and their towing power. This is a great accomplishment, another to add to the list of distinctions. Earlier this week we received the 2017 Motor Trend Truck of the Year award so we will add this to the list.”
