Hennessey Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6×6: New generation of six-wheel pickup truck is presented

At the beginning of this year the Hennessey returned to the fray with one of its proposals that most generate expectations: Powerful and fast pickup trucks.

Now the brand bets all its chips on the new Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6×6.

The power of the Hennessey Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6×6

In the new model, Hennessey has replaced the original 1,670mm case with a new one that reaches up to 2,400mm, thus increasing its carrying capacity by 45%.

The Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6×6 uses the 3,500cc EcoBoost V6 block used by the F-150 Raptor, thus delivering a power of 456 hp and a torque of 692 Nm.

This engine receives a series of improvements in the turbo, intercooler and air intake, as well as in the control unit that manages the engine, to achieve a power of 565 hp and a torque of 911 Nm.

Its power is slightly less than that of the VelociRaptor 600, but on the other hand it increases its torque, which makes it even more capable thanks to the added axle.

The Hennessey Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6×6 still has two rear axles with two double blocks and, according to the experts themselves, the traction has been increased up to 50%, which makes it capable of tackling almost any type of situation and terrain.

But this makes the Hennessey Gen 3 VelociRaptor 6×6 a very capable vehicle and not merely visual, as the preparer has also taken care of installing a Fox suspension and lift kit that increases its height by 70 mm, thus allowing for better angles of attack. and departure that would otherwise be reduced due to their longer duration.

This is also paired with new 20-inch wheels shod with 37-inch off-road tires, as well as new front and rear bumpers, as well as LED lights.

All this display of technology and visual power comes at a price, which Hennessey has set at US$ 399,950, which includes the new F-150 Raptor.
