How do you make Ford’s beastly 2017 Raptor even more beastly? How about throwing a couple more wheels on the rear end?

That’s just what Hennessey has done with the head-turning 2017 VelociRaptor 6Ă—6. Based on the 2017 F-150 Raptor, the VelociRaptor 6Ă—6 boosts Ford’s already impressive 450 horsepower to 600-plus thanks to a twin turbo upgrade and re-tuned factory computer.

“Our VelociRaptor 6×6 is pure aggression on wheels—all six of them,” said company founder John Hennessey. “The new 2017 Raptor is going to be one of the best all-around trucks ever built. We are excited to help take it to the next level both in terms of performance and exclusivity.”

The VelociRaptor 6Ă—6 concept includes the base 2017 Raptor 4-door truck, 6X6 locking rear axles, upgraded Fox suspension, upgraded 20-inch wheels and off-road tires, special front and rear bumpers, rollbar and LED lights.


The 600-plus horsepower twin turbo upgrade is available for the 6Ă—6 and for the factory version 2017 F-150 Raptor 4Ă—4. The turbo upgrade includes twin turbochargers, stainless steel exhaust modifications, upgraded front mounted air to air intercooler and plumbing and re-tuned factory computer.

Other optional upgrades for either truck include Brembo front & rear brake upgrade, larger wheels and tires, LED lighting upgrades, Bespoke Interior make-over, electronic upgrades and armoring systems.

The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 can be ordered directly from Hennessey Performance or through select Hennessey / Ford dealers.

Brace yourself. The VelociRaptor 6Ă—6 starts at $295,000, while the twin turbo upgrade can be had for $22,500.
