Hennessey Performance recreates a new Excursion gigga 'ute with the 2015/16 VelociRaptor SUV

If you've been Jonesing for a new Ford Excursion but forgot that they've been out of production for years, Hennessey Performance may have the answer...the 2016 Hennessey VelociRaptor SUV. Modeled after Ford's Excursion, Hennessey takes a new F-250 Lariat truck and converts it into the monster you see here. The conversion includes the new bodywork that includes the enclosed SUV body, four full doors, tailgate cargo doors, middle row Captain's chairs, folding third row bench, bumper upgrades, and of course, VelociRaptor badging. The F-250's 6.2-liter V8 (411 hp) is standard but may be updated to a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with either 600 or 650 hp. A heavy-duty six-speed automatic handles the power. An available 6.7-liter PowerStroke diesel creates 440 hp and an astounding 880 lb.-ft. of torque. Other options include an O-road suspension upgrade, wheel and tire upgrades, a Warn front winch, and basically anything your checkbook can handle. Hennessey needs six months to build one of these and prices start at $159,900 (plus taxes, license, fees, options). If you're not worried about an increase in gas (or diesel) prices and you really need a giant SUV, then Hennessey has got you covered.
