Hennessey has announced the arrival of its all-new VelociRaptor 500 Bronco – the eighth VelociRaptor model to come from Hennessey’s development team.
Engineered to be more potent and capable than Ford’s factory Bronco Raptor, Hennessey’s engineers applied their expertise to the 4×4’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. A new high-capacity intercooler, proprietary engine management system tuning, and low-flow exhaust modifications allow the VelociRaptor 500 Bronco to deliver nearly 20 percent more output now with 500 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of terrain conquering torque.
The new high-output Hennessey model increases capability and adrenaline in every scenario, adding serious speed on the road and ratcheting up off-road ability. But Hennessey didn’t stop there. Their engineering team boosts road presence and style with its Hennessey Heritage graphics, adorned with a Hennessey bucking bronco.
“Our customers are big fans of the new Bronco, but they’ve been asking us for more power and greater performance capabilities from day one,” John Hennessey, company founder and CEO said. “Ford’s Raptor version is a big improvement, but the engine has even more potential. Our engineering team has released its potency to create the ultimate all-powerful off-road SUV.”
Priced from $32,950 – exclusive of the base Ford Bronco Raptor – the VelociRaptor 500 package features enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with 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, unique Hennessey 10-spoke alloy wheels, Hennessey Heritage graphics, and VelociRaptor 500 Bronco badging. The interior features Hennessey’s embroidered head restraints, all-weather floor mats, and a unique plaque.
Following an intensive period of R&D, every Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 Bronco is road-tested at the company’s private test track. Hennessey prides itself on the reliability of its vehicles and the quality of its workmanship, backing up every Bronco build with its comprehensive three-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, visit their website for more information.
