2024 Ford Ranger Raptor Dyno Tested By Hennessey: Video

Dyno tests are always interesting in that they give us a more accurate idea of how much power a vehicle is putting to the ground – after factoring in drivetrain losses. In recent months, we’ve seen a host of high-performance Blue Oval models hit the dyno, including the Ford F-150 Raptor, the V8-powered Ford F-150 Raptor R, and the Ford Bronco Raptor, all of which were recently joined by the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor in FoMoCo’s North American lineup. Now that the well-received high-performance off-road pickup is reaching dealers and owners, Hennessey Performance took the time to strap one to the dyno, too.

2024 Ford Ranger Dyno Test Hennessey Performance Results

As most are well aware by now, the 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor comes equipped with the same twin turbocharged 3.0L V6 EcoBoost engine as the Bronco Raptor, but in this guise, is factory-rated to produce 405 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque on premium fuel, which it sends to the wheels via Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

On the dyno, Hennessey’s 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor put down 349 horsepower and 403 pound-feet of torque, which is a pretty impressive result. Typically, vehicles tend to lose around 15-20 percent of their rated flywheel power when measured on the dyno, and in this case, the Ranger Raptor was even lower – around 13.8 percent in terms of horsepower, as well as just under 6.3 percent in terms of torque.

These are undoubtedly impressive results compared to the mean, and also great news for those purchasing a new Ranger Raptor. After all, we don’t doubt that many – including Hennessey, of course – will be looking to modify their pickups and unlock even more power, and it certainly seems like they already have a solid base on which to do so.

    Either there’s less drivetrain efficiency losses, or Ford understated power. Only one way to find that out

      The 10spd in the mustang has been more like a 12% loss for years. 15% is an out of date number. Both performance automatic and manual transmissions are sub 15 now due to better fluids and more precise engineering.

      The F150 3.5L Ecoboost have been making ~350whp on the dyno since the 2nd gen came out in 2017 even though they are only rated at 375hp. Ford leaves a ton of room in the tuning for the engine to take advantage of higher octane fuels.

    So since the 3.0T came out in the MKZ in 2017(?) it’s gained 5HP and 30TQ over 7 years…. Wow.

    What have Ford engineers been doing? Sure havent made it more reliable if recent headlines mean anything.

    After the Dyno run Hennessey promptly stripped it for parts to use in several other cars it’s building while letting the owner know they’re gonna need more money and time to finish their build

    Hennessey is a damn crook and we shouldn’t be giving him any free or paid publicity unless he is going to prison.
