Which traditional V8 is faster? This drag race comparison is between a new Ram 1500 Sport with a 5.7L HEMI V8 and a 2014 Ford SVT Raptor with a 6.2L V8. This race is stacked up in Ram’s favor since the Raptor is a specialized off-road truck that is heavier and is riding on big and heavy 35-inch off-road tires.
Ford’s 6.2L V8 is more powerful at 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque when using 91-octane fuel. The 5.7L HEMI V8 is rated at 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. The Ram also has two performance enhancing components: Mopar air intake and cat-back exhaust systems.
