2014 Ford F-150 is an Insane Sleeper
Stock-looking Ford F-150 nearly runs in the 10-second range with a supercharged 5.0-liter V8.
The 5.0-liter V8 offered in the modern F-150 offers solid power in stock form, but thanks to the aftermarket support from both the truck world and the Mustang community, the “Coyote” can easily be built to make monster numbers. The video above comes to us from the YouTube channel of Robert Lee and it showcases the unleashed power of the 5.0-liter V8, with an average-looking Ford half-ton tickling the 10-second quarter mile range.
The details on this 2014 Ford F-150 are short, but we know that it is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 with the stock long block, so the heads, block and engine internals are all factory components. It also has the stock transmission, the stock rear differential, stock 3.55 gears, stock wheels and full factory interior.
Upgrades to this F-150 include a Roush supercharger providing 11 pounds of boost and unspecified “bolt-ons”, which likely include headers, exhaust, a larger throttle body and other external engine bits. The engine is tuned by AED Tuning, but we don’t know what type of fuel the truck is running on in the video. Finally, this truck has a set of Hoosier drag slicks, traction bars and a torque convertor that stalls between 3,500 and 3,700 RPM.
Shy of the Hoosier tires, this Ford F-150 looks completely stock and while the roar of the blown V8 gives it away, few muscle car owners would line up next to this truck and expect it to lay down a low-11-second quarter mile time.
Running Low 11s
The video above begins with the 2014 F-150 backing into the water of the burnout box before inching forward to clean off the tires. At first, it might pass as an average Ford truck with Hoosier tires, but when the driver puts the hammer down and begins to roast the rears, it quickly becomes apparent that this pickup is very healthy. The blown Coyote sounds amazing in the burnout box and during a quick pop prior to staging.
After easing into the staging beams, the driver brings up the engine speed as the amber lights come down. On green, the F-150 hops off of the line, getting out to an early lead over the truck in the left lane, pulling hard and straight down the track.
The race appears to be fairly close, but with the starting line advantage, the black F-150 takes the win. However, we aren’t so interested in the outcome of the race as we are the times on the big board. This Ford truck runs an 11.09 at 124 miles per hour, and according to the comments, the truck later went 11.00. That is crazy-quick for a half-ton truck that looks stock down to the wheels.
