0-60 in 9?

Why do alot of review sites say this truck does 0-60 in 9 seconds? I mean my truck feels alot faster then that and that seems way to slow. Anyone else notice this?

i dont think the ranger - stock would do 0-60 in 9 seconds even if you drove it off a cliff. remember, aerodynamics of a brick on wheels

there must be something wrong with that because my 3.0 can get to 60 in 9.5 sec
