Hennessey is Duding It Again With The Outrageous Venom 775 F-150

Hennessey doesn’t do normal, it does beer and dudes around a campfire biting the heads off rattlesnakes and drinking the residual snake venom. That’s how one imagines the Hennessey engineering team seeks inspiration. They weaponize everything that is normal and turn it into a mechanical force 10 hurricane. And that is exactly what they have done with the Venom 775 F-150. Hennessey engineers have almost doubled the output of the Ford F-150’s 5.0-liter V8, adding 375 bhp to the stock model’s 400 bhp.

A 3.0-liter twin-screw supercharger and new intercooler system, plus upgrades to the air filtration, throttle body, and engine management systems are just a few of the enhancements that HPE has made. The new model, which is now in production at Hennessey’s Sealy, Texas, headquarters ramps up the torque to 685 lb-ft a full 275 lb-ft above the stock Ford V8’s 410 lb-ft. The Hennessey Venom 775 F-150 can sprint to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, while the ¼ mile sprint takes just 12.0 seconds @ 117 mph.

Thanks to aluminum-intensive construction, the F-150 has a significant weight advantage over the TRX (it’s about 2,000 lbs lighter depending on specification).

The Venom 775 is nimbler on- and off-road, plus it puts the power down more quickly – the Ford is also capable of both RWD and 4×4 modes. The Hennessey team also elevates the F-150’s off-road performance with an off-road upgrade that adds integrated front and rear Venom bumpers, a front LED bar, a 6-inch lift, and 20-inch Hennessey 10-spoke wheels wrapped in 35-inch off-road tires.

Customers buying the Hennessey-tuned F-150 will typically spend a total of $90,000-$110,000 (including the stock V8 Ford F-150). The new truck is available with global shipping and can be ordered through Hennessey directly (+1 979.885.1300 or visiting HennesseyPerformance.com).
