600 horsepower is now on tap for the F-150 Raptor.
Hennessey's VelociRaptor conversion has become something of a legend. Available in various different guises, the tuning package seriously increases the performance of Ford products like the Bronco, the Ranger, and of course, various types of Ford F-150 pickups. The Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the most popular recipients of Hennessey's work, and that is unlikely to change anytime soon. The tuner has now applied its expertise to the 2021 model, and the results are as awesome as ever. Once again, the VelociRaptor conversion gives the Raptor more power and torque, along with reduced acceleration times and a more aggressive look.
Hennessey hasn't yet completed development of the package but says that we can expect an upgraded induction system, a high-capacity intercooler with blow-off valve, and retuned engine management software.
With these upgrades, Hennessey is aiming to produce an additional 150 horsepower, bringing the VelociRaptor to 600 hp with 622 lb-ft of torque. The team is aiming for a 4.2-second 0-60-mph sprint time and a quarter-mile time of 12.9 seconds. Also in the cards are optional 20-inch Hennessey wheels, Brembo six-piston brakes, and a suspension leveling kit. VelociRaptor badging will also be offered, as will similar decals to make the truck stand out even further.
Hennessey says that most of its customers go the whole hog and get everything they can to upgrade the truck, so the tuner will once again offer its enhanced off-road package, adding new bumpers with LED lights, wheels, and off-road tires. In this spec, the total price "is typically in the region of $110,000", but that includes the stock F-150 Raptor too. If you just want the engine mods, the VelociRaptor 600 will start at a base price of $85,950, and as always, that includes a three-year/36,000-mile warranty. If you're interested, you'd best act fast, as the tuner expects this to become its best-selling model. Just 250 units will be produced per year and customer orders are now open. Deliveries are expected to begin early next year,
