Hennessey introduced the next-generation VelociRaptor 6×6 in the middle of this week, a six-wheeled pickup based on the current Ford F-150 Raptor. First and foremost, we have a third axle, along with a longer tailgate, but also a stiffer chassis and more able to face off-road challenges. At the same time, we quickly notice some 20-inch rims shod with off-road tires with a diameter of 37 inches.
Compared to the standard version of the current Ford F-150 Raptor, the wheelbase of the new VelociRaptor 6×6 presented by Hennessey is 0.8 meters longer. Under these conditions, the load capacity also increased quite a lot, by about 45%. We also learn from the American officials that the bumpers have also been modified, the car also being equipped with a bullbar and an additional LED light strip.
Technically speaking, the new VelociRaptor 6×6 presented by Hennessey is also equipped with a rear double locking differential. At the same time, let’s not forget the suspension lifting kit that the Americans used, the suspension being thus raised by up to 76 mm. Compared to the F-150 Raptor, the VelociRaptor 6×6 has a much higher ground clearance.
The engine has been modified for more power
As an engine, the VelociRaptor 6×6 presented by Hennessey is equipped with the same engine that we know from the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, the engine has been modified to provide more power. We therefore have a 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 unit, which develops 566 horsepower and a maximum torque of 911 Nm. According to the details published by the Americans, improvements to the engine may include a software remapping, a new induction system and a new intercooler.
The price of the new Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 is not a small one at all, those who want it will have to shell out a little over 400,000 euros to be able to have it.
