Hennessey Morphs the 2015 Ford F-250 Truck to the VelociRaptor SUV

If the 2015 Ford Expedition EL isn’t enough to meet your needs, then Hennessey has a solution. The Texas-based tuner expands its VelociRaptor lineup with the 2015-2016 Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV, which starts life as a 2015 Ford F-250 Super Duty 4x4 pickup truck. If the Ford Excursion still existed today, it’d probably look a lot like this.

The big news here is obviously the extensive custom body work needed to convert the F-250 into an SUV. Hennessey says two seating arrangements are available. The first includes a seven-passenger setup with middle row captain chairs and a third-row bench. Customers can also opt for an eight-passenger arrangement with a middle row bench.

The base kit starts a 411-hp, 6.2-liter, gas-powered V-8, though two supercharger upgrades are available. The VelociRaptor SUV can also be had with a 6.7-liter diesel, tuned to make 440 hp and 880 lb-ft of torque.

Other modifications give the VelociRaptor SUV a pretty mean look – beefier wheels, custom front and rear bumpers, a front winch, LED light bar, and an O-road suspension setup are just a few items on the upgrade list.

The conversion obviously isn’t quick and cheap. The VelociRaptor SUV’s starting price is $159,500 and Hennessey needs about six months to complete the project. Save and plan accordingly.
