Based on the Ford Raptor R, it debuts with a 700-HP V8, dual axles, and an 8-foot cargo bed.
In the world of automotive engineering, Hennessey Performance Engineering consistently raises the bar, and their latest offering, the new VelociRaptoR 6X6 Ford Raptor R, is no exception. Transforming the formidable Ford Raptor R into a 6X6 supertruck, this vehicle transforms the Ford F-150 Raptor R’s off-road capability and rugged luxury.
At the heart of the VelociRaptoR 6X6 lies the untouched and already immensely powerful supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine of the Ford Raptor R, delivering a staggering 700 bhp and 640 lb/ft of torque. This powertrain ensures that the VelociRaptoR 6X6 dominates all terrains, both on and off-road, with ease and authority.
But it’s not just about power. Hennessey has meticulously engineered every aspect of this truck. The VelociRaptoR features six-wheel drive, a testament to its unparalleled traction and stability. The vehicle’s extended boxed frame and an additional, fully functional locking rear axle increase the tractive grip by more than 50 percent.
Off-road enthusiasts will appreciate the advanced suspension system. Equipped with Live Valve Fox dampers, the most sophisticated off-road suspension available on a production vehicle, the VelociRaptoR 6X6 is prepared for any adventure. A three-inch lift further enhances its capability, complemented by Hennessey’s custom 20-inch alloy wheels and 37-inch off-road tires. Utility is a significant aspect of this supertruck’s appeal. It boasts an eight-foot cargo bed, replacing the standard 5.5-foot bed and increasing cargo capacity by over 45 percent. This feature, combined with the dual locking rear axles and enhanced suspension, improves the truck’s utility substantially.
The VelociRaptoR’s aesthetics match its performance. With new front and rear bumpers, LED off-road lights, and exclusive Hennessey VelociRaptoR badging, this truck makes a statement wherever it goes. Measuring nearly 27 feet in length, about 7 feet in height, and 7 feet in width, it commands attention with its impressive size and presence. Hennessey’s commitment to excellence is evident in the VelociRaptoR 6X6’s 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty, ensuring peace of mind for the owners of this beastly machine. Additionally, customers have the flexibility of either sourcing a new Ford Raptor R for conversion or purchasing the turn-key vehicle directly from Hennessey.
Hennessey has long been a leader in Ford Raptor upgrades, setting industry benchmarks since the truck’s introduction in 2009. The VelociRaptoR 6X6 is a shining example of their expertise, combining raw power, advanced technology, and robust utility in a package that is unmatched in the automotive world.
