Hennessey Performance Engineering posted video today of its 2019 VelociRaptor Ranger racing and beating a stock 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor.
The race isn’t even close. Hennessey took the Raptor’s stock 2.3-liter EcoBoost V6 and dialed it up from 270 to 360 horsepower. Torque shot up from 310 to 440 foot pounds. ECU tuning led to more muscle along with a stainless catback exhaust that increases air flow and gets the midsize maverick from 0 to 60 in 4.9 seconds, a two second improvement over stock.
“The VelociRaptor Ranger is so much fun to drive!” said company founder and CEO John Hennessey. “With over 400 lb.-ft. of torque and 0-60 mph performance in under 5 seconds, our VelociRaptor Ranger delivers an impressive amount of smiles per gallon.”
Hennessey reports that its VelociRaptor Ranger is so quick that it beat a stock 2019 Ford Raptor with 450-hp in a drag race from 0 to 100 mph.
Hennessey also went big on suspension and got the VelociRaptor six inches higher over stock thanks to Stage 1 off-road suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels paired up with BFG Mud Terrain TA KM2 tires. Rounding out the off-road upgrades Hennessey has also upgraded the front bumper with LED lights and optional winch upgrade.
The price for the 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor Ranger upgrade is $64,950 which includes a new 2019 Ford Ranger truck. Cost for the VelociRaptor Ranger upgrade by itself is $19,950 plus vehicle shipping. Production is limited to just 500 units for the 2019 model year and each upgrade comes with a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty.
