2016 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV
Hennessey Performance, the American tuning house, has presented its latest model. It is the 2016 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV which is based on the Ford F-250 pickup truck. The Hennessey VelociRaptor 600, a model based on the 2015 Ford F-150, was revealed in late 2014. It came as an enhanced pickup with stunning 600 horsepower. The time has come for Hennessey Performance to surprise us with a new outstanding vehicle. Although the 2016 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV is based on the F-250, it actually resembles the previous-generation model made by the company. Namely, the model that combined a number of features seen on the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ford Excursion models.
The 2016 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV will be able to carry up to eight passengers in a modern and luxurious new cabin. The exterior styling boasts an aggressive and head-turning appearance. It is mostly due to its robust front and rear bumpers as well as several other striking design cues. The new model features off-road suspension and tires, sports brakes and springs as well as additional lights and a Warn hook.
2016 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV Engine
This powerful vehicle is motivated by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that churns out 411 horsepower. For those who opt for even more power, the company offers two superchargers. The superchargers can boost the output to incredible 600 and 650 horsepower.
Unfortunately, Hennessey Performance is yet to release official figures when it comes to acceleration and top speed. According to some estimates, the 2016 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV should stay in the same region as its predecessor. That means it will be able to go from 0 o 60 mph in around 4 seconds.
For those who opt for diesel-powered units, there will be the 2016 Ford Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV Diesel model. It will be propeled by a 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel engine that develops 440 horsepower and 880 lb-ft of torque.

Despite its anticipated price of $160,000, we believe the number of interested buyers will surpass the number of available units by far.
