Hennessey VelociRaptor Ford Ranger Adds 80hp, 4-inch Lift
While those in some parts of the globe are getting an official Ford Ranger Raptor, here in the States, Ford has yet to announce plans for one. Seizing on a clear market opportunity, Hennessey Performance wasted no time turning its hand to the 2019 Ford Ranger truck. Hennessey took a standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost-powered Ranger and pushed the power up a few notches. The stock engine is rated for 270 hp stock, and after the massaging, it makes 350 bhp.
Torque increases from 310 lb-ft to 385 lb-ft. Power optimization required a new high-flow air induction system, a less restrictive catback exhaust system, and ECU tuning. After the power upgrade, the Ranger can go from 0-60 mph in 6.1-seconds. That’s 1.3-seconds better than stock.
The truck rolls on a Stage 1 off-road suspension that lifts the truck by 4-inches. When combined with updated 17-inch alloy wheels with BFG off-road tires, the truck is 6-inches taller than stock. It also gets fender flares, an upgraded front bumper with LED lights, unique graphics, and a LED roof light bar and winch are options.
Pricing for the VelociRaptor Ford Ranger is $64,950, including the 2019 Ranger truck. The upgrades themselves will run you $19,950 if you already have the truck. Only 500 trucks will be made for 2019.
