Hennessey Performance Reveals Menacing VelociRaptor 500 Bronco
Sealy, Texas (October 4, 2022) – Hennessey® the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, announces the arrival of its all-new Bronco VelociRaptor® 500 — the eighth VelociRaptor® model to come from Hennessey®’s development team.
Engineered to be more potent and capable than Ford’s factory Bronco Raptor, Hennessey®’s engineers applied their expertise to the 4×4’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. A new high-capacity intercooler, proprietary engine management system tuning, and high–flow exhaust modifications allow the Bronco VelociRaptor® 500 to deliver nearly 20 percent more output – 500 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of terrain conquering torque!
The new high-output Hennessey® model increases capability and adrenaline in every scenario, adding serious speed on road and ratcheting-up off-road ability. But Hennessey® didn’t stop there. Their engineering team boosts road presence and style by lifting the vehicle three inches and offering its Hennessey® Heritage graphics, adorned with a Hennessey® bucking bronco.
Priced from $32,950 – exclusive of the base Ford Bronco Raptor – the VelociRaptor® 500 package features enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with blow-off valve, and an upgraded engine-management system to boost performance of its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. Hennessey® transforms the exterior with custom VelociRaptor® bumpers, unique Hennessey® 10-spoke alloy wheels, Hennessey® Heritage graphics, and VelociRaptor® 500 Bronco badging. The interior features Hennessey®’s embroidered head restraints, all-weather floor mats, and unique plaque.
Following an intensive period of R&D, every Hennessey® VelociRaptor® 500 Bronco is road-tested at the company’s private test track. Hennessey® prides itself on the reliability of its vehicles and quality of its workmanship, backing up every Bronco build with its comprehensive 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty.
