Hennessey Delivers Imposing Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6x6

  • Hennessey engineers a striking 6×6 variant of its best-selling third-generation VelociRaptor
  • Enhanced pickup features expansive eight-foot load bed above dual locking rear axles
  • Improved power, torque, suspension, and wheels complete the upgrade and differentiate the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 from all others
  • First Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 units delivered earlier this month

 

Sealy, Texas (September 13, 2022) – Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has transformed the latest third-generation Ford F-150 into an immensely capable, go-anywhere, six-wheel drive pickup – the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6.

The modifications and enhancements go far beyond simply adding a third pair of wheels. The Hennessey engineers equipped the new truck with sophisticated Fox suspension and dual locking rear axles – adding an impressive 50 percent more tractive grip – to ensure the VelociRaptor dominates on- and off-road. The truck’s uprated, turbocharged powertrain produces 558 bhp and 672 lb-ft of torque, which guarantees that the VelociRaptor’s grunt matches its significant size.

Based on the latest third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor, the imposing Hennessey creation is significantly longer than the stock Raptor. The extension allows the fitment of an expansive 8-foot (2.4 meter) long load bed that boasts 45 percent more volume than the stock 5.5-foot (1.67-meter) bed. Hennessey has also raised the VelociRaptor to be several inches taller than standard through a combination of a three-inch lift, upgraded Hennessey 20-inch wheels and capable 37-inch off-road tires.

Hennessey is the world’s largest producer of modified Ford F-150 Raptors having built thousands of its high-performance VelociRaptor trucks for customers around the globe. Taking these power-packed trucks to the extreme ‘6×6’ stage is also second nature to Hennessey’s engineers. Over the years, they’ve made a host of enormous, exclusive, and highly capable 6×6 trucks from the Mammoth 6×6 TRX, and Goliath 6×6 Silverado, to the latest Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6×6.

John Hennessey, company founder and CEO: “Everything is bigger and faster in Texas and our VelociRaptor 6×6 takes this concept to the extreme! Building on the capability, power, and presence of our VelociRaptor truck, our latest six-wheel drive offering will delight customers across the US and around the world with its power and go-anywhere abilities.”

Priced from $399,950 – inclusive of the base Ford F-150 Raptor – the VelociRaptor 6×6 features uprated Fox suspension, locking rear axles, new front and rear bumpers, LED lights and a custom-made eight-foot load bed. Hennessey’s engineers boosted the performance of Ford’s twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with blow-off valve, and an upgraded engine-management system.

Hennessey prides itself on the quality of its vehicles and workmanship and the VelociRaptor 6×6 benefits from a comprehensive 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty. Available for international shipping, the new Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 can be ordered now through authorized Ford retailers or directly with Hennessey, by calling +1 979.885.1300 or visiting HennesseyPerformance.com.
