Hennessey Upgrade Turns 2015 Ford F-150 into 600-hp VelociRaptor

Those who have been having a hard time trying to cope with the termination of the current Ford SVT Raptor may have just found their cure. Hennessey is on a mission to try and mend broken hearts with a new upgrade for the 2015 Ford F-150, essentially turning the aluminum-bodied truck into a 600-plus-hp truck dubbed the VelociRaptor.

To create something like the VelociRaptor, the Texan tuner started with a 2015 F-150 equipped with a 5.0-liter V-8 and added a Roots-type supercharger that churns out 8 psi of boost. That's the just beginning, as the tuner also added a high-flow air induction system, upgraded fuel injectors, and stainless-steel exhaust system to help the engine breathe.

Other upgrades include 33-inch BF Goodrich tires on 17-inch Hennessey wheels, while buyers can also opt for off-road goodies such as a custom off-road coilover suspension, upgraded front and rear bumpers, front winch, LED light bars, and Brembo brakes. Only 500 units of the 2015 VelociRaptor will be built and they start at $73,500, which includes the base2015 F-150 FX4 Super Crew 5.0L V-8.

That said, the upgrades account for around $32,000 (for a four-wheel drive model). They can be ordered at Ford dealerships and come with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. If all 500 units are gone before you get a chance to order one, don't worry. Hennessey reports that it’s working on a VelociRaptor upgrade package for trucks equipped with the EcoBoost engine.
