The Hennessey VelociRaptor 400 Bronco – a high-performance, fortified version of the Ford Bronco – was revealed back in July of last year with promises of 405 horsepower and 503 pound-feet of torque – an increase of 75 horsepower and 88 pound-feet of torque over stock – from Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost V6. Now, however, Hennessey VelociRaptor 400 Bronco production has begun – just a few days after the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor-based VelociRaptor 600 – and it’s producing even more power than originally promised.
The final figures for the new VelociRaptor 400 Bronco are 411 horsepower and 603 pound-feet of torque, the latter of which represents a significant jump from the original projections. The Texas-based tuner achieved those figures by adding a new engine management software upgrade, stainless steel exhaust system, a high-flow air induction system, and a larger front-mounted intercooler system, which propels the SUV from 0-60 in just 4.9 seconds.
On the outside, the VelociRaptor 400 Bronco looks the part thanks to 18-inch Hennessey wheels wrapped in 35-inch off-road tires, power fold-out steps, a VelociRaptor front bumper with LED lighting, a VelociRaptor rear bumper, and all the requisite badging one might expect. The interior also boasts embroidered headrests, as well as a serial numbered plaque for the cabin and engine compartment.
Hennessey will build just 200 units of the VelciRaptor 400 Bronco for the 2022 model year at a cost of $24,950 plus a donor Bronco. Adding the cool Hennessey livery – which consists of hood and roof stripes, a “D-shape” line graphic, and a number 1 on the driver and passenger doors – tacks an additional $6,000 onto that price, however. The new high-performance off-roader is in high demand, according to Hennessey, and will make its public debut at this week’s Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, after which customer deliveries will begin.
