Ford’s smallest pickup truck is about to get Raptorized. Hennessey Performance has just launched an upgrade kit for the 2019 Ford Ranger.
The performance package will boost the Ranger’s 2.3L turbocharged four-banger mill from the stock 270hp to a more respectable 350hp, about the same as the Ford Focus RS. It will also be quicker by 1.3 seconds in the 0-60 time, while putting out 75 lb-ft more torque.
The upgrades consists of a new high-flow intake and cat-back exhaust, combined with ECU tuning. For aesthetics, owners can outfit their new Veloci-Ranger with custom offroad bumpers and wider fender flares, with matching 17-inch rims wrapped in beefy 33-inch rubber.
The whole package can be combined with Hennessey’s Stage 1 offroad suspension kit, which provides a 4-inch lift over the stock ride height.
The Hennessey Ranger VelociRaptor upgrade package will cost $19,950 exclusive of shipping. As always, it will be covered by the company’s excellent 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty, whichever comes first.
If you’re looking to boost your Ranger to Focus RS-levels of grunt, then you better hurry: Hennessey says the kit will be limited to 500 trucks this year.
