New Supercharged Hennessey® Venom® 775 F-150 Outpowers and Outperforms factory Ram TRX
Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE), the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle builder, has completed development of Ford-based Venom® 775 F-150, which promises factory-stock Ram TRX-crushing power and performance.
The Hennessey® engineers have almost doubled the output of the F-150’s 5.0-liter V8, adding 375 bhp to the stock model’s 400 bhp. A 3.0-liter twin screw supercharger and new intercooler system, plus upgrades to the air filtration, throttle body, and engine management systems are just a few of the enhancements that HPE has made. The new model, which is now in production at Hennessey®’s Sealy, Texas, headquarters ramps up the torque to 685 lb-ft a full 275 lb-ft above the stock V8’s 410 lb-ft.
Thanks to aluminum-intensive construction, the F-150 has a significant weight advantage over the TRX (it’s about 2,000 lbs. lighter depending on specification). The Venom® 775 is nimbler on- and off-road, plus it puts the power down more quickly – the Ford is also capable of both RWD and 4×4 modes. The Hennessey® team also elevates the F-150’s off-road performance with an off-road upgrade that adds integrated front and rear Venom® bumpers, a front LED bar, a 6-inch lift, and 20-inch Hennessey® 10-spoke wheels wrapped in 35-inch off-road tires.
John Hennessey, company founder and CEO: “Our dedicated Ford customers have been eager for a showroom stock ‘TRX killer’ since Ram unveiled the truck. HPE engineers have delivered with more horsepower, more torque and more capability – I could not be more pleased. Our new Venom® 775 F-150 is faster and lighter than the factory TRX, and our order books are filling fast with F-150 fans determined to regain the high-ground.”
Just 100 of the Ford-based supertrucks will be built by HPE engineers in Texas. The result of intensive R&D and decades of expertise sees the new Hennessey® Venom® 775 sprint to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, while a ¼ mile sprint takes just 12.0 seconds @ 117 mph.
Backed by Hennessey®’s three-year / 36,000-mile warranty, customers can be confident in exploring the full extent of the Venom® 775’s performance both on- and off-road. In addition, the Hennessey® modifications retain all the manufacturer driving modes enabling comfortable cruising or high-power performance at the flick of a switch.
Customers buying the Hennessey®-tuned F-150 will typically spend a total of $90,000-$110,000 (including the stock V8 Ford F-150). The new truck is available with global shipping and can be ordered through Hennessey® directly (+1 979.885.1300 or visiting HennesseyPerformance.com)
