2021 Ford F-150 Raptor-based Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 debuts

A new generation of the Ford F-150 Raptor arrived for 2021, and now Hennessey has launched its own tuned version of the performance pickup truck.

Hennessey's tuned F-150 Raptor is a continuation of the company's VelociRaptor line, and this one, the VelociRaptor 600, keeps the Raptor's 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 but dials things up to 600 hp and 622 lb-ft of torque. That's quite the jump on the stock 450 hp and 510 lb-ft, and it will see the VelociRaptor 600 hit 60 mph from rest in 4.2 seconds and cover the quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds.

Key modifications to the powertrain include high-flow intake and exhaust systems, a high-capacity intercooler, and new engine management. Some of Hennessey's management tweaks also ensure that more of the torque is sent toward the rear wheels during launches.

Beyond the powertrain mods, Hennessey offers custom front and rear fascias for a tougher look, helped along by a bull bar with integrated LED lights (shown above). Buyers can also opt for custom 20-inch wheels with 37-inch off-road tires, a suspension leveling kit, and massive six-piston front brakes from Brembo.

Pricing for the VelociRaptor 600 starts at $85,950, including the cost of the donor F-150 Raptor. Production will be capped at 250 units per year and customer deliveries are due to start in early 2022.

Anyone looking for more power out of the F-150 can opt for Hennessey's Venom 775 based on the F-150 Platinum with a 5.0-liter V-8. Ford is also working on a V-8-powered Raptor to be called the Raptor R. We'll see it introduced for the 2022 model year.
