600-HP VelociRaptor VS 2017 F-150 Raptor



Hennessey Performance may not be the most popular tuning house out there, but their upgraded Ford F-150 Raptor does crank out an impressive 605 hp and 622 pound-feet of torque. Now, it has been pitted against a stock 2017 F-150 Raptor in a drag race.

Unveiled in March, the VelociRaptor’s upgraded 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine can rocket the pickup from zero-to-60 mph in just 4.2 seconds and easily eat up a 1/4 mile in 12.9 seconds. Impressive for something that has a curb weight of 5696 lb from factory and it could possibly weigh more with the added stainless steel exhaust system, high-flow air induction system, etc.

Though it doesn’t compare to what the VelociRaptor can produce, the factory F-150 Raptor has an output of 450 hp at 5000 rpm and 510 lb-ft at 3500 rpm. A tad slower, the Raptor can go from zero-to-60 mph in 5 seconds.

A paved stretch of tarmac may not be the ideal place for a Raptor to show off its capabilities, but it does provide us with a glimpse of what an additional 155 hp looks like. In a quarter mile race at full throttle, the VelociRaptor pulls ahead by around eight-truck lengths.

A bit off topic but still related since its a Ford.... if Hennessy tunes the new Navigator then I will ditch the F150. Never needed a bed for anything worth while and never seen a full size SUV I liked, Lincoln has changed that now.
