Why would anybody want a Hennessey F-150 VelociRaptor 6×6?

The 6x6 VelociRaptor takes the pickup truck and dials things up to 11 with six wheels and tires and three axles to provide an over-the-top driving experience.

Pickup trucks are uniquely American vehicles. They were first envisioned to not only transport people but also to haul whatever their owners needed in a bed. Today, pickup trucks do a whole lot more. But, why would anyone want one of Hennessey’s new F-150 VelociRaptor 6×6 trucks?

Well, because America, that’s why. The 6×6 VelociRaptor takes the pickup truck and dials things up to 11 with six wheels and tires and three axles to provide an over-the-top driving experience. John Hennessey himself poses and answers the question in a new video featuring the creation. He also provides some driving footage ahead of the truck’s customer delivery. Hennessey knows this $349,000 pickup is not the most practical vehicle, but notes it’s simply cool to look at and very unique. We’d say that’s an understatement.

Matching the off-road capability is Hennessey Performance Engineering’s tuned 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that puts out 605-horsepower and launches this beast from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds.

What’s it like to drive? Hennessey says it actually feels like a normal F-150 Raptor, though, it’s apparently very obvious there’s something extra at the rear of the truck. In Hennessey’s words, it’s like driving a “military-spec” vehicle.

Hennessey will build just 50 VelociRaptor 6×6 pickups for the United States and another 50 for overseas markets. The truck seen in the video above is headed to a Florida customer, so all Floridians should be on the lookout for one of the brashest trucks we’ve seen in a very long time.
