2021 Hennessey VelociRaptor Ford Bronco: $225,000 but V-8, Amirite

We expect Ford will introduce a Bronco Raptor at some point. But it probably won’t match the output of the new 2021 Hennessey VelociRaptor Bronco, which enters production next year. Hennessey dropped in a 5.0-liter Ford V-8 delivering 750 hp, allowing the SUV to reach 60 mph in a claimed 4.5 seconds. Power is routed through Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

New fuel injectors, air-to-water intercooler, and performance intake and exhaust systems make up some of the key upgrades. The improvements continue with an upgraded off-road suspension and beefy off-road tires. A hood scoop, along with the custom livery and unique front grille, provide extra flavor. Hennessey didn’t forget about the interior, where you’ll find special touches including embroidered headrests and serial numbered plaques.

The Hennessey Bronco will be available in two-door and four-door configurations. But you’ll want to hurry, because Hennessey is only making 24 copies in total for the 2021 model year with a standard three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty.

So what’s the price? Hennessey is asking a significant amount: $225,000, but at least that includes the cost of the donor Bronco, which starts from $29,995.

If you don’t get your hands on one of these models, there’s still plenty of off-road fun to be had. We figure a potential Bronco Raptor would make at least 350 hp, perhaps 400 hp. The regular Bronco packs a standard 2.3-liter turbo-four with 270 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque, or an available 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6 with 310 hp and 400 lb-ft.
