Still pondering a new truck purchase. I did an internet search and I don't think I have found much on bone stock 1/4 performance for the 5.7 Hemi 4x4 of for the 3.6 either.

Does anybody have 1/4 mile times for these machines? Does anyone know how they compare to the GM 5.3 and 2.7 turbos?

I have a 4.7 now and it is a stone.

Mine is bone stock except for a CAI and a Hemi fever 87 octane tune with 140,000 miles and runs a 14.1 quarter. For a 5000 lbs. brick, I forgot to add "Naturally aspirated" and not being blowed (turbocharged) or sucking a bottle (nitrous), I'm happy, don't care what the other brands run! Until they add twin turbo's to the Hemi what's to compare?

From talking to other people and researching, 2.7 F150 is pretty dang fast. Definitely faster than any stock RAM (besides $90k TRX). Not sure about GM, you mentioned. That 2.7 would be my choice if I were looking to upgrade.

What are ya doing?? Comparing it to a corvette 5.5??

Who’s going to be driving? That’s a huge factor in the 1/4 time?

man not me the 2.7 sounds like crap i’ll take a little slower ride to enjoy the sound of a v8. even the eco boost 3.5 sounds bad the other day a raptor went by and my wife said that’s a pretty truck but it sounds like a ricer lol

If you need 2 turbo's to beat a naturally aspirated V-8 why not just have a V-8 that sounds great and not worry about a turbo possibly going out? Naturally aspirated 4 and 6 cylinders are just that..... a 4 or 6 cylinder but if that is what you like it's ok with me.

both the 2.7 and 3.5 leave a hemi for dead. Ram needs to up their game in the power department.
