Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE), the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has turned up the power on the new Ford Bronco with its VelociRaptor package, the company announced.
The all-new Hennessey VelociRaptor 400 Bronco produces 405 horsepower at 5,700 rpm and 503 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,900 rpm as a result of the reworking by Hennessey.
The team’s engineers fit new intake and exhaust systems to the 2.7-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 powerplant, in addition to recalibrating the engine to maximize power. The VelociRaptor package adds 75 horsepower to the range-topping Bronco Wildtrak and adds 88 lb.-ft. to the stock torque figure enabling the 4×4 to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds.
With Hennessey’s Off-Road Package, owners can individualize their Bronco further with 35-inch off-road tires on 18-inch Hennessey wheels; front and rear VelociRaptor bumpers; retractable side steps; and VelociRaptor branding. Thanks to the extensive Hennessey R&D process, all of the Bronco’s engine modes and off-road systems are retained, plus Hennessey provides a 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty as part of the $80,000 price that the typical customer will pay (including the base Bronco Wildtrak).
John Hennessey, company founder and CEO: “Whether you’re on- or off-road, more power is what our customers demand, and our VelociRaptor 400 Bronco really delivers. The new Bronco is destined to be an icon and our customers want their Bronco to stand out with enhanced styling and, of course, more power.”
