Would you choose this over the Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6?
Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has transformed the latest third-generation Ford F-150 into an immensely capable, go-anywhere, six-wheel drive pickup – the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6.
The modifications and enhancements go far beyond simply adding a third pair of wheels. The Hennessey engineers equipped the new truck with sophisticated Fox suspension and dual locking rear axles – adding an impressive 50 percent more tractive grip – to ensure the VelociRaptor dominates on- and off-road.
The truck’s uprated, turbocharged powertrain produces 558 bhp and 911 Nm of torque, which guarantees that the VelociRaptor’s grunt matches its significant size.
Based on the latest third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor, the imposing Hennessey creation is significantly longer than the stock Raptor. The extension allows the fitment of an expansive 2.4 meter long load bed that boasts 45 percent more volume than the stock 1.67-meter bed.
Hennessey has also raised the VelociRaptor to be several inches taller than standard through a combination of a three-inch lift, upgraded Hennessey 20-inch wheels and capable 37-inch off-road tires.
Hennessey is the world’s largest producer of modified Ford F-150 Raptors having built thousands of its high-performance VelociRaptor trucks for customers around the globe.
Taking these power-packed trucks to the extreme ‘6x6’ stage is also second nature to Hennessey’s engineers. Over the years, they’ve made a host of enormous, exclusive, and highly capable 6x6 trucks from the Mammoth 6x6 TRX, and Goliath 6x6 Silverado, to the latest Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6x6.
Priced from $399,950 (RM1.81 million), the VelociRaptor 6x6 features uprated Fox suspension, locking rear axles, new front and rear bumpers, LED lights and a custom-made eight-foot load bed.
Hennessey’s engineers boosted the performance of Ford’s twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine with enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with blow-off valve, and an upgraded engine-management system.
