Hennessey’s 500-hp ‘VelociRaptor 500’ Bronco Raptor Roars into Production

  • 500 bhp production version of the new Hennessey ‘VelociRaptor 500’ Bronco Raptor provides a 20 percent power boost over the factory rating
  • Exclusive upgrade available for the 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 in the flagship Ford Bronco Raptor
  • Winter evaluations in Colorado conclude the pre-production test program for Hennessey’s enhanced 4×4
  • Custom Hennessey wheels, and new styling elements, complement the elevated performance

 

Sealy, Texas (April 4, 2023) – Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has begun customer deliveries of its new 500 bhp VelociRaptor 500 Bronco Raptor. Following cold weather testing in the snowy mountains of Colorado, Hennessey’s engineering team signed off the enhanced version of Ford’s factory Bronco Raptor enabling production and deliveries to begin at the company’s Texas headquarters.

Hennessey’s engineers, who have been ‘making fast cars faster’ for more than 30 years, applied their expertise to the SUV’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine to boost power and heighten drivability. A new high-capacity intercooler and proprietary engine management system tuning improve charge cooling and increase intake boost to enhance output. Total system power is rated at a dyno-proven 500 bhp and 550 lb-ft of torque – earning Hennessey’s ‘VelociRaptor 500’ nameplate.

Last month, Hennessey’s team traveled to Colorado for low-temperature, high-altitude testing in the Rocky Mountains, where this winter’s conditions have been challenging. However, despite snowstorms and freezing temperatures, Mother Nature’s challenges were no problem for the upgraded 4×4, fitted with Hennessey’s unique 20-inch alloy wheels and 37-inch off-road tires.

John Hennessey, company founder, and CEO: The VelociRaptor 500 Bronco is one of our most agile and capable off-road offerings — it’s nearly unstoppable off the pavement. Our 500 horsepower upgrade pairs perfectly with Ford’s rugged Bronco Raptor 4×4 as we improve upon the factory’s high-performance offering and enhance it with more power and a more aggressive appearance.” 

Exclusive of the base Ford Bronco Raptor – the VelociRaptor 500 package features enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with a blow-off valve, and an upgraded engine-management system to boost the performance of its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. Hennessey transforms the exterior with custom VelociRaptor bumpers, LED off-road lights, unique Hennessey 10-spoke alloy wheels, and VelociRaptor 500 Bronco badging. The interior features Hennessey’s embroidered head restraints, all-weather floor mats, and a unique build number plaque.

Having completed an intensive period of R&D at the company’s private test track and in extreme conditions both on- and off-road, Hennessey confidently backs every Bronco build with its comprehensive 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty. Available for international shipping, the new Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 Bronco is available now through authorized Ford retailers or directly from Hennessey by calling +1 979.885.1300 or visiting HennesseyPerformance.com.

Ford Bronco Raptor Engine Upgrades

The best upgrades for the 2023 Ford Bronco Raptor include VelociRaptor-branded front and rear bumpers, 20″ Hennessey-branded wheels, 37″ off-road tires, and an upgraded heat exchanger. Hennessey Performance harnesses the Ford Bronco Raptor 3.0L V6 engine to deliver high-performance thrills to the 4×4 beast.

When vehicles get older and accumulate miles, components age, and wear – understandably, the risk factor of modifying them increases. As a result, Hennessey Performance does not offer a warranty on vehicles older than three years, regardless of condition or maintenance, or vehicles with more than 20,000 miles.
