Texas-based Hennessey Performance caught the three-axle pickup trend for the creation of its VelociRaptor 6x6.

The latest Velociraptor is based on the F-150 Raptor from Ford, which hit the markets in 2021.

As a result, it features the familiar 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 under the hood, which has been tuned by Hennessey to generate 558 hp and 672 lb-ft of torque.

To improve off-road capability, the truck features dual-locking rear axles, raised suspension, updated Fox shocks, extra LEDs, and massive 20-inch wheels shod with 37-inch off-road tires.

The model also has medium-looking bumpers as well as a protective bar at the front. Hennessey says the suspension has been improved over the previous setup to ensure more power hits the ground.

Subsequently, the third axle was rolled under the Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 TRX lanes, although buyers did not like the Silverado conversion and it was quickly abandoned.

But the three-axis VelociRaptor is still in demand, so Hennessey made a monster based on the new generation Raptor.

The recipe is the same as the previous model. The length of the loading platform was increased from 1.67 to 2.4 meters, two axles with differential locks between wheels were installed under it.

Suspension with omnivorous Fox dampers is almost the same as the original Ford, but ride height is increased by a further three inches 76mm.

The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 starts at $ 399,950 and can be shipped worldwide.

The pickup is already in production and the first copies began to be delivered earlier this month.
