While the Ford Ranger Raptor is relatively brand-new, Hennessey has decided to take things up a notch and add an extra kick of excitement. The updated VelociRaptor 500 Ranger is now infused with even more power and adorned with stunning visual enhancements. The custom bumpers steal the show when it comes to exterior updates, boasting an integrated bull bar and quad LEDs that illuminate the path ahead with ease.

As we step inside, we are greeted with the sight of all-weather floor mats, a numbered plaque, and the tuner's name beautifully embossed on the headrests. The latest addition to the vehicle's features is the stunning 18-inch alloy wheels, boasting a 10-spoke design and equipped with 35-inch off-road tires.

The mighty twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine churns out a robust 405 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque straight from the factory. But wait, there's more! Hennessey has taken this powerhouse to the next level, elevating those already impressive numbers to a jaw-dropping 500 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque.

The surge in power was achieved through the implementation of a cutting-edge high-flow air induction system, complete with a blow-off valve, a beefier intercooler, and a software upgrade to the ECU. A 10-speed automatic gearbox, with the assistance of front and rear locking differentials, channels the force to each of the four wheels.

The VelociRaptor 500 Ranger is now available for pre-order and is set to begin production in the fourth quarter of 2023. With only 200 limited-edition units planned for release in 2024, this is a rare opportunity for fans of the brand to get their hands on this impressive vehicle. The kit comes at a starting price of $24,950.
