Hennessey Performance Engineering has announced the Velociraptor 600 upgrade package for the new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor. Orders are placed now and will ship in early 2022. The base price of the upgraded truck will start at $ 85,950, this which includes the price of a factory 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor. But if you buy an original 2021 Ford Raptor, you can upgrade it later, if you want.
Velociraptor Hennessey 2021: the details
The factory 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor develops 405 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque thanks to its high-output 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. From the existing platform, Hennessey gets the new Raptor to throw 600 horsepower and 622 lb-ft of torque. That’s thanks to a revised air intake system, high-capacity intercooler, and engine software. Hennessey is aiming for a 0-60 time to 4.2 seconds, a decrease of almost a second from the factory time of 5.3 seconds. The muscular truck can cover the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds, an improvement over base models running at 14 seconds flat, making it comparable to the Ram 1500 TRX, despite a drop of 102 horsepower and two cylinders.
