Hennessey has unveiled its new 500-horsepower VelociRaptor 500 Bronco. Based on the 4×4 Ford Bronco Raptor, the VelociRaptor 500 takes the stock twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine and bumps the power output by nearly 20 percent.
“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,” says John Hennessey, company founder and CEO. “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.”
The factory 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor is rated at 418 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. Hennessey engineers upgraded the VelociRaptor 500 Bronco’s engine with a new high-capacity intercooler with blow-off valve, low-flow exhaust and a proprietary engine management system to increase the power output to 500 horsepower and 550-lb-ft of torque.
Hennessey upgraded the Bronco Raptor’s stock exterior with custom VelociRaptor bumpers, unique Hennessey 10-spoke alloy wheels, Hennessey Heritage graphics, and VelociRaptor 500 Bronco badging. The interior has Hennessey’s embroidered head restraints, all-weather floor mats and special plaque.
The VelociRaptor 500 Bronco package is priced from $32,950 on top of the Ford Bronco Raptor and includes a comprehensive 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
