Introducing the 2017 Hennessey VelociRaptor 600
Texas Tuner Adds Velocity & Increased Off-Road Capability to the New Ford Raptor Truck
SEALY, Texas – Hennessey Performance (HPE) today announced its VelociRaptor 600 upgrade for the 2017 Ford Raptor truck. The team at Hennessey has bumped the Ford EcoBoost 3.5L twin turbo V6 engine from 450 bhp and 510 lb-ft of torque to 605 bhp and 622 lb-ft. of torque. The increased power and twist yield a 0-60 mph time of just 4.2 seconds while running down the ¼ mile in just 12.9 seconds at 110 mph.
“Our last VelociRaptor 600 was very popular with our V8 Raptor customers”, said John Hennessey, Founder & CEO of Hennessey Performance. “We are very excited about our latest upgrades for the twin turbo Ecoboost V6 engines and for our clients upgrade who want even more power, performance and off-road capability from their new Raptor trucks.”
Power is increased by additional airflow coming from higher flowing twin turbochargers which breath through a lower restriction intake system. The compressed air, at higher boost pressure (21 psi vs 18 psi stock) is fed through a larger, more efficient air to air intercooler system and then into the intake tract and motor. Exhaust from the turbos exits via a free flow true dual stainless steel exhaust system. Revised tuning of the factory engine management system allows the VelociRaptor to deliver increased power and performance while retaining factory-like driveability. The VelociRaptor 600 twin turbo upgrade comes with a 3 year / 36,000 mile limited warranty from Hennessey.
“We only plan to build 100 units for the 2017 model year,” said Hennessey. “Our customers like having something special and exclusive as well as fast and fun to drive.” The VelociRaptor 600 upgrade costs $22,500 installed at the Hennessey facility in Texas and can be ordered directly from the company or local Ford dealers.
The team at Hennessey are also offering a special VelociRaptor Off-Road Package which includes heavy duty front and rear bumpers, LED lights, 20 inch Hennessey wheels with 35 inch Toyo tires and an overall lift of 3 inches. This system is available by itself or as an additional option to the VelociRaptor 600 package. Cost for the VelociRaptor Off-Road package is $12,995 installed.
