For over 26 years, the team at Hennessey Performance has been designing some of the most sought-after builds on the planet. John Hennessey and his championship team have built more than 10,000 custom vehicles, many of which have been featured on popular media outlets around the world.

For 2017, the company has been responsible for building over 400 specialty vehicles. So it came as no surprise when the company announced the return of one of the wildest off-road projects — the VelociRaptor.

VelociRaptor 6x6 Upgrades

• Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew base

• 605 horsepower at 6,000 rpm from a twin-turbo engine upgrade

• 622 lb-ft of torque

• 6×6 locking rear axles

• Upgraded Fox suspension

• Six 20-inch wheels and Toyo Open Country tires

• Hennessey front and rear bumper upgrades

• LED lights

• Roll bar

• Three-year/36,000-mile warranty from Hennessey

The original VelociRaptor debuted back in 2010, and since making an appearance on the popular TV show Top Gear, more than 1,000 four-wheeled VelociRaptors were delivered by Hennessey Performance to customers across the country.

The company’s latest VelociRaptor 6×6 project is based on the current generation Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew and is powered by an upgraded twin-turbo engine that will produce 605 horsepower and 622 lb-ft of torque. Debuting at this year’s SEMA Show, the VelociRaptor 6×6 concept took 11 months to build and gave Raptor enthusiasts a first-hand look at a custom build that was designed to handle any off-road adventure you can throw at it.

“The VeliciRaptor 6×6’s appearance at SEMA was just a sneak peek, but we are done testing,” said John Hennessey, Founder, and CEO of Hennessey Performance Engineering. “It is time to uncage our monster of a truck.”

The VelociRaptor 6X6 pickup starts at $349,000 and includes the base 2017-2018 Raptor four-door truck. The company is accepting orders for a limited production run of 50 VelociRaptor 6×6 trucks and is making these vehicles available for export around the world.
