Hennessey Performance Modifies 2021 Ford F-150 and Adds 775 Horsepower
Hennessey’s American tuning company modifies a 2021 Ford F-150 and turns it into a supercharged 775hp monster, which is 325 more horsepower than the Ford Raptor. Adding an engine blower under the hood makes its 5.0 L Coyote engine more powerful thanks to the air compressor that increases the pressure of air supplied to the engine. Instead of having 450hp and 510 lb-ft of torque that the Ford Raptor puts out, the F-150 Hennessey Venom has 72 percent more horsepower, which makes it a high-speed truck in a straight line. These numbers should make Dodge rethink their whole strategy with its Ram TRX and add performance adjustments to stay competitive.
A video on the company’s YouTube channel shows the Hennessey Venom F-150 racing against a 2021 Ram TRX and winning the race at the Pennzoil Proving Grounds in Sealy, Texas. This shows how a couple of performance upgrades can improve the overall handling characteristics of a vehicle. Of course, with all those upgrades, getting behind the wheel of one is limited to a select handful of buyers since it boasts a price tag of over $100,000.
What makes this modified F-150 so impressive is its 3.0 L twin-screw engine blower, a larger throttle body, increased air intake, and an air-to-water intercooler. The 2021 Ford Raptor has a maximum towing capacity of 8,200 lbs, but the F-150 Hennessey Venom can haul considerably more weight provided by its increase in horsepower.
Other upgrades include:
- A higher-compression fuel system.
- A heavy-duty tensioner.
- A lightweight supercharger pulley.
- Performance spark plugs.
- A stainless steel cat-back exhaust system.
Special Features and Accommodations
Every F-150 Hennessey Venom comes with exterior graphics, embroidered seats with orange stitching, and a three-year/36,000-mile warranty. Hennessey also offers chassis dyno tuning and up to 400 miles of road testing on paved roads and off-roading. To improve its off-road capabilities, the company incorporates a LED bar in the lower portion of the front bumper for more visibility in low-light conditions, a 6-inch lift kit, and 20-inch rims fitted into 35-inch tires from Nitto.
Hennessey has not released exact pricing figures just yet, but it’s estimated the truck will cost well over $100,000. The one displayed in the video is a donor truck and a Platinum trim that starts around $60,000 in its stock configuration.
