Ford Bronco-based Hennessey VelociRaptor 400 lands with 75 more horses
Ford has finally started production of the 2021 Bronco, and some of its earliest customers are aftermarket tuners who see the SUV as a blank canvas. Texas-based Hennessey began adding 75 horses to the off-roader's cavalry.
Hennessey keeps the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 with two turbochargers, but installs revised intake and exhaust systems and recalibrates the engine management software. When all is said and done, the six-cylinder develops 405 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 503 pound-feet of torque at 3,900 rpm, an increase of 75 horsepower and 88 pound-feet over the output of the stock Bronco running on premium fuel.
Reaching 60 mph from a stop takes a hot hatch like 4.9 seconds, according to Hennessey.
Buyers can order the performance upgrade in conjunction with the off-road package from Hennessey. It bundles 18-inch wheels with 35-inch tires, specific bumpers on both ends, LED exterior lighting and electrically operated running boards.
Hennessey will limit production of the VelociRaptor 400 to 200 units for the 2021 model year. Prices start at $ 80,000, including the cost of a Bronco Wildtrak dispenser, and each build is backed by a three-year 36,000 mile warranty. Enthusiasts looking to put their name on a building site can turn to an authorized Ford dealer.
If a punch of 405bhp isn't enough, Hennessey also plans to develop the V8-powered Bronco, which Ford won't build. Preliminary specs outline the outline of a 750-horsepower off-road supercar fitted with a 10-speed automatic transmission (a stick is not offered), a number of suspension modifications, and visual tweaks. Production will be capped at 24 units for the 2021 model year, and prices will start at $ 225,000 before shipping.
Motorists who want a V8 in a Bronco may soon have another option to choose from. Ford and its historic partner Shelby strongly suggested working on a hotter version of the SUV that we'll see in the not-too-distant future.
