At SEMA the specialty producer Hennessey debuted the 2018 Ford Raptor 6×6. You already know, when 4 wheel simply aren’t sufficient.
The $349,000 price ticket contains the donor 2018 Raptor four-door truck and provides a twin-turbo engine spitting out 605 horsepower and 622 pound-feet of torque. That is sufficient to hustle this monster from zero to 60 miles an hour in four.9 seconds. Not dangerous for one thing that’s too massive to park in most underground garages.
The rear axles nonetheless lock to supply higher traction in soiled conditions, however the VelociRaptor has 10 inches of floor clearance over a inventory Raptor. Wheel measurement is upped to 20 inches, carrying Toyo Open Nation rubber. Aesthetic goodies embody particular entrance and rear bumpers, a roll bar and all of the LED lights you would ever want.
There’s one choice on the VelociRaptor: a $22,000 upgraded six-caliper Brembo brake system.
Up till this level, Mercedes-Benz has been the one choice for a ridiculous 6×6 automobile, and it is not obtainable within the US. Hennessey will make 50 of the gargantuan 6×6 Ford vehicles and has already presold a handful.
Be careful, Mercedes, there’s one other contender for the six-wheel crown.
