Introducing the Hennessey® VelociRaptor® SUV

BOURBONNAIS, IL – Hennessey® Performance (HPE) located in Houston, Texas as well as Southern California specializes in modifying and automotive upgrades. The company was founded in 1991 by John Hennessey. Since then the company has produced many outstanding vehicles including the newly released Hennessey® VelociRaptor® SUV.

The first thing that most people say when they first see this upgraded vehicle is “WOW!”. It has the look of the highly sought after Ford Raptor while still being able to accommodate the family like the Ford Expedition. Off road testing has not yet been performed so the folks at HPE do suggest keeping this vehicle on-road or using for light off-road activities. “Don’t plan on pre-running Baja or negotiating Rubicon with our SUV – that is not why we built it”, said company founder, John Hennessey. But, if you’re looking for the ultimate vehicle to drive from Aspen to Telluride in January, the VelociRaptor SUV would be perfect.”

A few other specs to note, with all modifications done it has increased the weight by about 600 pounds. The standard 411 bhp SUV is able to achieve 0-60 mph times of 7.5 seconds.

So, just how much does this upgraded Ford Raptor cost? The price tag on this SUV is a whopping $149,500! However, production is limited to only 30 per year.

The Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV can be ordered directly from Hennessey Performance or through select Hennessey / Ford dealers. For more information about the VelociRaptor® SUV, including optional upgrades and pricing, please contact a Hennessey client services representative at +1.979.885.1300 or email
