American Hennessey Performance introduced the VelociRaptor 6×6 Concept at the 2016 SEMA Tuning Show. Now, a year later, at the same event in Las Vegas, the production version of this vehicle is set. 2018 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 was created in response to the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 model.
This is not the first time that Hennessey Performance offers its version of the VelociRaptor model. Earlier, this tuner also offered a SUV version under this name. This model was a combination of the Ford F-150 pickup truck and the Ford excursion SUV model. Otherwise, the characteristic of all Hennessey VelociRaptor creations are great performance, modified elements and rich equipment. All this is ‘sprinkled’ by the remarkable outward appearance of the vehicle.
Specs and Design
As a base for VelociRaptor 6×6 it was used by the F-150 VelociRaptor. The vehicle features six wheels of a 20-inch size. This is the first Hennessey VelociRaptor, which comes in this configuration. In addition to the six wheels, the 2018 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 has got a modified Fox suspension.
The vehicle features redesigned bumpers (front and rear), as well as a roll bar and additional LED lights at the top of the vehicle. We should not forget the Brembo brake and a specially designed exhaust system.
The new Hennessey VelociRaptor feature an ultra-powerful engine and exceptional off-road capabilities. Also, the vehicle has a large towing capacity. The inevitable detail, with this model, is a specially designed and trimmed interior.
Below the hood is Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 engine. The engine is backed by new turbochargers. This engine makes the 2018 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 available with 600 horsepower output power.
2018 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 Price
The final production version of this vehicle will be available at a price of $ 295,000. Some may say immediately that this price is too high for a pickup truck model. Still, this is not a vehicle for everyone. The 2018 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 is for true fans of this type of vehicle. For those who do not satisfy themselves with excellence, they are looking for a phenomenal, that is, perfection. You will agree with us that Hennessey Performance, once again, has succeeded in its intent.
