 Texas-based Hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, Hennessey, has begun customer deliveries of its new 500 horsepower BADASS HENNESSEY BRONCO VelociRaptor.BADASS HENNESSEY BRONCO

Following cold weather testing in the snowy mountains of Colorado, Hennessey’s engineering team signed off the enhanced version of Ford’s factory Bronco Raptor enabling production and deliveries to begin at the company’s Texas headquarters.

Hennessey’s engineers, who have been making fast cars faster for more than 30 years, applied their expertise to the SUV’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine to boost power and heighten drivability. A new high-capacity intercooler and proprietary engine management system tuning improve charge cooling and increase intake boost to enhance output. Total system power is rated at a dyno-proven 500 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque – earning Hennessey’s VelociRaptor 500 badging.

Last month, Hennessey’s team traveled to Colorado for low-temperature, high-altitude testing in the Rocky Mountains, where this winter’s conditions have been challenging. However, despite snowstorms and freezing temperatures, Mother Nature’s challenges were no problem for the upgraded 4×4, BADASS HENNESSEY BRONCO fitted with Hennessey’s unique 20-inch alloy wheels and 37-inch off-road tires.

According to company founder and CEO, John Hennessey, “The VelociRaptor 500 Bronco is one of our most agile and capable off-road offerings — it’s nearly unstoppable off the pavement. Our 500 horsepower upgrade pairs perfectly with Ford’s rugged Bronco Raptor 4×4 as we improve upon the factory’s high-performance offering and enhance it with more power and a more aggressive appearance.”

BADASS HENNESSEY BRONCOPriced from $28,950 – exclusive of the base Ford Bronco Raptor – the VelociRaptor 500 package features enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with a blow-off valve, and an upgraded engine-management system to boost the performance of its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine. Hennessey transforms the exterior with custom VelociRaptor bumpers, LED off-road lights, unique Hennessey 10-spoke alloy wheels, and VelociRaptor 500 Bronco badging. The interior features Hennessey’s embroidered head restraints, all-weather floor mats, and a unique build number plaque.

Having completed an intensive period of R&D at the company’s private test track and in extreme conditions both on- and off-road, Hennessey confidently backs every Bronco build with its comprehensive 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty. Available for international shipping, the new BADASS HENNESSEY BRONCO VelociRaptor 500 Bronco is available now through authorized Ford retailers or directly from Hennessey by calling 1 979.885.1300 or visiting   https://www.hennesseyperformance.com/

HENNESSEY SUPERCHARGED CADILLAC ESCALADE

In addition to the HENNESSEY SUPERCHARGED CADILLAC ESCALADE, performance-boosting H650 upgrade is also available for the 6.2-liter Chevy Suburban, ChevyTahoe, and the GMC Yukon.

HENNESSEY SUPERCHARGED CADILLAC ESCALADETexas-based Hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle builder, Hennessey Performance, has released a comprehensive new performance upgrade package for the Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, and GMC Yukon. Hennessey’s boost in output for vehicles with the GM 6.2-liter V8 takes power from the mild 420 horsepower factory rating to a wild 650 horsepower – entirely transforming the acceleration and driving dynamics of GM’s full-size SUVs.

Hennessey’s engineering team fits GM’s popular 6.2-liter V8 (L87 EcoTec3) with a robust 2.9-liter supercharger, high-flow intake system, high-flow intercooler, and a crankcase ventilation system. In addition, Chromoly pushrods are installed, and the engine management software is updated with HPE engine management calibration. Lastly, a stainless-steel cat-back exhaust system (retaining stock exhaust tips) is installed to improve performance and soundtrack. The result is an impressive dyno-proven 650 horsepower and 658 pound-feet of torque.

During development, the ‘Hennessey Supercharged H650 Escalade’ – enhanced with an additional 230 horsepower – achieved 0 to 60 mph in just 5.3 seconds. That was quick enough to leave the stock Cadillac Escalade, with its slower 6.1-second dash, in the rearview mirror. Likewise, the quarter mile run falls in just 13.5 seconds – a full second quicker than stock. Accompanying the increased power is a more robust full-throttle exhaust note, which perfectly complements the SUV’s enhanced performance.

Hennessey’s H650 upgrade fits a range of GM SUVs equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 – irrespective of trim level. These vehicles include the model year 2021 and onward Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon, and GMC Yukon XL.

John Hennessey, company Founder and CEO: “Our team is very excited about this supercharging development for GM’s 6.2-liter V8, as it offers a huge audience of GM SUV owners the ability to bump power by an impressive 230 horsepower – that’s a 55 percent increase in power. Additionally, the improved torque increases drivability at all speeds and enhances towing. The H650 upgrade literally transforms sedate family SUVs into performance vehicles.”  

HENNESSEY SUPERCHARGED CADILLAC ESCALADE

Although the performance of the 6.2-liter V8 is altered, Hennessey’s engineers retain all the legendary ride and drivability of the stock SUVs, leaving suspension modes, drive modes, and all-wheel drive modes unaltered. The Texas team’s production and the testing program includes a final performance assessment on the dyno and out on the open road.

Each upgraded H650 vehicle is fitted with a serial-numbered engine plaque. In addition, all vehicles are backed by Hennessey’s comprehensive 3-year / 36,000-mile limited warranty. The total cost for the upgrade is $27,950 – excluding the base GM SUV.
