Hennessey Creates Insane Velociraptor Ranger

Hennessey Performance already has a reputation for doing crazy things, but this latest one takes stuff to the next level. The mad scientists took a 2019 Ford Ranger and made it the tiny VelociRaptor Ranger of our dreams.

As you probably already guessed, it started with modding the EcoBoost 2.3-liter engine. Among the upgrades is an ECU tune, a high-flow intake system, and a cat-back exhaust. That elevated output from 270 horsepower to 350, while torque jumped from 310 lb.-ft. to 385. That’s not bad for the size of the Ranger.

This doesn’t meant the VelociRaptor Ranger will be winning any drag races. It goes 0-60 in 6.1 seconds, which might not sound like much, but is 1.3 seconds better than a stock Ranger.

Of course, the real reason for this truck is to off-road like a beast. A Stage 1 suspension upgrade provides a 4-inch lift. The truck also comes with BFG off-road tires, which add about another 2 inches to the overall height. A new front bumper has auxiliary lights embedded in the middle and sides, plus it can accommodate a winch. Then there’s the available LED bar mounted to the roof, if illuminating a base camp is something you anticipate doing.

Buying the Hennessey VelociRaptor Ranger isn’t cheap. It costs $64,950, but at least that price includes a new Ford Ranger. If you already have the truck, the upgrades run $19,950 plus shipping. Still, a new F-150 Raptor retails at $52,855, but not everyone wants something quite so large.
