Following the Mustang GT, Hennessey has released another Heritage Edition model, this time based on the F-150 pickup.
As with the pony car, the truck features a livery inspired by that of the Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition. Surprisingly, the red paint with white stripes and racing numbers on the front doors suit the F-150 quite well. But that’s hardly the only change made to the full-size truck.
The Heritage Edition F-150 also features Hennessey exterior badging, serial numbered dash and engine plaques, as well as embroidered headrests. And that’s not all, as customers can have the flashy truck in two different flavors: Sport Kit Upgrade and Off-Road Upgrade.
The former brings a lowering kit, 22-inch wheels shod with performance tires, sway bars and a Brembo braking system. The latter package comes with new bumpers (with LED fog lights at the front), 20-inch 10-spoke wheels shod with 35-inch Toyo Off-Road tires, and a front suspension leveling kit. As a result of all these modifications, overall lift is 3 inches (76 mm).
Only 2018 Ford F-150s equipped with the 5.0-liter V8 qualify for Hennessey’s upgrade. Highlighting the mechanical modifications is a 2.9-liter supercharger that helps increase power to 757 hp at 7,000 rpm – comfortably more than the GT’s 647 hp. Other engine tweaks include increased boost pressure, air-to-water intercooler, high-flow air induction, as well as upgrades to the fuel injectors and fuel system.
There’s also a stainless steel cat-back exhaust system that provides a phenomenal tune to the F-150’s tuned V8 and definitely beats the F-150 Raptor at this game — just check the video for reference.
