Texas Tuner to Build 2021 Ford Bronco with 750 Horsepower Supercharged V8 Engine
SEALY, Texas, Oct. 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) will be taking the new Ford Bronco to the next level when it goes into production next year: The VelociRaptor V8 Bronco. It will be powered by a supercharged 5.0 liter Ford V8 engine producing 750 hp and mated to a Ford 10-speed automatic transmission. HPE estimates that the increased power and performance will lower the vehicle's 0-60 mph time to just 4.5 seconds. Other upgrades include custom hood with scoop, larger wheels and tires, upgraded suspension system, custom Hennessey leather interior, VelociRaptor V8 racing livery graphics, upgraded stainless steel exhaust and more.
The 2021 Bronco may be one of the most highly desired vehicles since the introduction of the Ford GT.
"Over the past two years we have built over 70 Gen 2 Ford Raptors for our customers by removing the EcoBoost V6 and replacing it with the same 750 HP supercharged 5.0 V8. I wanted to build the ultimate Ford Bronco for myself and for our customers," said company founder and CEO, John Hennessey. "The 2021 Bronco may be one of the most highly desired vehicles since the introduction of the Ford GT. We look forward to taking the new Bronco to the next level and beyond."
Production will be limited to a total of 24 units for the 2021 model year. The VelociRaptor V8 Bronco is available in both 2-door and 4-door configurations and comes with a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty from Hennessey. The complete cost including the new Bronco is $225,000 plus vehicle shipping costs. The VelociRaptor V8 Bronco can be ordered directly from Hennessey or through authorized Hennessey / Ford dealers.
