The arrival of a more performance, capable and sporty variant of the Bronco is no secret. The company itself has shown it to us on video. Specifically, the Bronco Raptor will hit the market at the end of 2023. That means there are still months to go, so the Hennessey VelociRaptor 400 Bronco can be an interesting alternative.
If you love the Ford Bronco as much as we do, know that today Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE), the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and creator of high-performance vehicles, has increased the power of the new Ford Bronco with its acclaimed VelociRaptor package, a package that turns the model into a true 4×4 beast.

The new Hennessey VelociRaptor 400 Bronco features 411 hp at 5,700 rpm and 682Nm of torque at 3,900 rpm. It is the result of a comprehensive reworking by the experts at Hennessey.

The VelociRaptor package adds 76PS and 119Nm of torque to the original torque figures. These improvements allow the 4×4 to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds. With the Hennessey Off-Road Package, owners can further individualize their Bronco with 35-inch off-road tires on Hennessey wheels from 18 inches.
Front and rear VelociRaptor bumpers are also missing; as well as retractable running boards and VelociRaptor logos.
