    Introducing The 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor Ford Ranger
    Hennessey builds a Ford Ranger Raptor with 350 bhp!

    Hennessey-VelociRaptor-2019-Ranger-1-min.jpg

    Sealy, Texas (March 4, 2019) — The team at Hennessey has done it again. They’ve taken the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger truck and given it more. More power. More size. More aggression. In other words, Hennessey Performance (HPE) has transformed the new Ranger into a VelociRaptor. After nearly 10 years of successfully modifying the Ford Raptor with the company’s well known VelociRaptor brand name; HPE has taken their experience from building thousands of VelociRaptor-powered Ford Raptor trucks and has applied their knowhow to the 2019 Ford Ranger.

    The first order of business for the 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor Ranger is, as you might have guessed, adding more power and performance. HPE has increased power from Ford’s 2.3L turbo EcoBoost engine from 270 hp stock to 350 bhp. Torque is also increased from 310 lb-ft to 385 lb-ft of torque twist. The VelociRaptor Ranger gets sharper claws by combining proven methods of increased air flow through a new high-flow air induction system, less restrictive and better sounding stainless steel catback exhaust system and ECU tuning for increased boost. The VelociRaptor Ranger’s resulting power boost lowers 0-60 mph performance to just 6.1 seconds – an improvement of 1.3 seconds over stock.

    The party is just getting started with the VelociRaptor Ranger’s improved power and acceleration. To be a true VelociRaptor, the Hennessey-tuned Ranger also needs to deliver improved off-road performance. To achieve this goal, HPE has upgraded the Ranger with their Stage 1 off-road suspension upgrade which lifts the vehicle by 4-inches. Combined with Hennessey 17-inch alloy wheels and upgraded BFG off-road tires, the Hennessey VelociRaptor Ranger is nearly 6 inches taller than stock. Rounding out the off-road upgrades Hennessey has also upgraded the front bumper with LED lights and optional winch upgrade. A roof-mounted LED light bar is also available as an option.

    “We are so excited to introduce our 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor upgrades for the 2019 Ford Ranger truck,” said company founder & CEO, John Hennessey. “The demand for our VelociRaptor upgrades for the Ford Raptor truck has been incredible over the past 10 years. We are thrilled to be able to offer increased power, performance – on and off-road all packed in our exclusively branded VelociRaptor package.”

    The price for the 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor Ranger upgrade is $64,950 which includes a new 2019 Ford Ranger truck. Cost for the VelociRaptor Ranger upgrade by itself is $19,950 plus vehicle shipping. Production is limited to just 500 units for the 2019 model year and each upgrade comes with a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty. The Hennessey VelociRaptor Ranger is available directly from Hennessey or from select Authorized Hennessey Performance Ford dealers, including Brown Lee Ford from Nashville, TN.

    Quick question for those that dabble in this. The air flow seems pretty restricted in the OEM configuration for the standard ranger. Wondering if those that have theirs already plan on doing cold air intakes or if even the snorkel option will allow more air to enter the engine.

    I ask IRT the snorkel due to the fact we seem to drift snow a lot here in northern Montana. Seen plenty of *cough*Dodge*cough*people stop in the shop due to their intake filters being clogged due to busting through drifts on the highways by the border.

    You too can have your very own Hennessey VelociRaptor Ranger for the low low price of $19,950 plus vehicle shipping!

    The upgrade doesn't list replacement fenders or replaced LCAs yet the pictures they're using clearly show both. This is basically a photoshopped ROTW Ranger Raptor with their added bits. You can make this yourself for much less I'd imagine.

    ONLY $19,950.....hell, I'll take 2 :LOL: On the positive side, with this "VelociRaptor" going 0-60 in 6.1, we could see sub-6 second 0-60 times for more REAL world (non-Jurassic type) Rangers.

    That is a sweet set up!
    I’d take one just like the pictures except delete the bar behind the cab.
