Ford Raptor returned to the market in 2017 with the 450 hp twin turbo V6 EcoBoost engine. No one complained about a 450 hp Raptor, but many previous owners wanted more powerful V8 option. The team of Texas Tuning Powerhouse, Hennessey Performance (HPE) answered them recently by introducing the 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor V8.
They have taken a brand new 2019 Ford Raptor, removed the EcoBoost V6 and swapped it with a specially built Ford 5.0L V8 engine that is supercharged by Hennessey to the tune of 758 hp. An extensive series of modifications include a new 5.0L V8 Ford engine, Ford 10-speed automatic transmission, Ford wiring harnesses, ECU’s and other parts that complete the engine swap. Once the V8 is installed, the Hennessey team cranks up the power to the tune of 758 hp via their 2.9L supercharger system, which produces seven psi of boost pressure. Hennessey’s V8-powered Raptor runs from 0-60 mph in a staggering 4.1 seconds.
The conversion of powerful VelociRaptor also include: VelociRaptor bumpers front & rear, LED front lights, Stage 2 off-road suspension with a six-inch lift, Hennessey 20-inch alloy wheels, 37-inch BF Goodrich KM03 off-road tires, Hennessey & VelociRaptor V8 exterior badges, and Hennessey embroidered headrests, serial numbered plaques in the interior and engine bay. What’s the price?
The 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor V8 price is $147,950, which includes a new 2019 Ford Raptor F-150 truck. Production is limited to just 100 units for the 2019 model year and each vehicle has a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty that covers the base Ford truck as well as the complete VelociRaptor V8 conversion.
