Hennessey Announces Bronco VelociRaptor With Over 400 HP

Past year, Hennessey declared that it’d make the Bronco VelociRaptor V8. It was a 750-horsepower off-road menace with a supercharged 5.-liter lurking beneath the hood. It debuted very long right before the Bronco even begun manufacturing, but now that Ford is eventually developing the SUV and delivering it to dealers, Hennessey is back to announce yet another Bronco enhance named the VelociRaptor 400.

Contrary to the Bronco VelociRaptor V8, the VelociRaptor 400 retains Ford’s two.7-liter EcoBoost beneath the hood of the Wildtrak product. Hennessey receives the additional electric power by setting up a new intake and exhaust process and recalibrating the engine. The inventory engine makes a stout 310 hp (231 kW) and 400 pound-feet (542 Newton-meters) of torque, but Hennessey will increase that to 405 hp (302 kW) and 503 lb-ft (681 Nm) of torque. The company claims the tuned Bronco can hit sixty miles per hour (ninety six kilometers per hour) in four.9 seconds.

On the outdoors, Hennessey’s enhance includes 18-inch Hennessey wheels, 35-inch off-road tires, a VelociRaptor entrance and rear bumper, LED lights, and Hennessey and VelociRaptor badging. There are Hennessey embroidered headrests on the seats, and retractable aspect actions make having in and out easier. The enhance retains the Bronco’s engine modes and off-road process intact, with a three-year, 36,000-mile guarantee supplied by Hennessey for peace of mind.

Hennessey suggests that it will limit the to start with-year manufacturing of the Bronco VelociRaptor 400 to just 200 illustrations, with the package deal costing $24,950 on top of the Bronco. Hennessey expects the typical client to spend $80,000 on the enhance. Now that the Bronco is eventually in manufacturing, soon after a great number of delays disheartening ready shoppers, we’re likely to see a host of tunes, updates, and kits come to be offered as house owners established out to personalize their new off-road rides. We simply cannot wait around to see what Hennessey delivers and what the competitors provide to the desk.
