Hennessey Heritage Edition F-150 is One Wicked Pickup
Hennessey’s 758-horsepower F-150 tears up the track and sounds incredible in the process.
The team at Hennessey Performance is best known for building high performance Chevrolet products, but they recently introduced their 2019 Hennessey Heritage Edition package. This package applies to the Mustang GT, the GT supercar and the Ford F-150. The basis of this package for the truck is an engine build that yields 758 horsepower, but the company is also offering two unique exterior upgrade packages that cater to the street crowd and the off-road crowd.
The video above from Hennessey’s YouTube channel shows the 2019 Heritage Edition Ford F-150 tearing around their test facility with the Off-Road Upgrade package. Although this truck is built to go anywhere, it does a pretty solid job of tearing around the track and the sound during the high performance fun is just incredible.
Heritage Edition F-150 Details
The Hennessey Heritage Edition is designed for the 2018 and 2019 Ford F-150 with the 5.0-liter V8 engine. Hennessey adds a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger, an air-to-water intercooler, a high-flow engine air induction kit, larger fuel injectors, a “fuel system upgrade”, a stainless steel cat-back exhaust system and the engine tune that brings it altogether. The result is 758 horsepower at the crankshaft and 570 horsepower at the rear wheels.
The basic Heritage Edition package also includes the unique graphics, serial plaques on the engine and dashboard, embroidered headrests and Hennessey exterior badging.
In addition to the basic Hennessey Heritage Edition package, F-150 owners can also opt for the Sport Kit or Off-Road upgrade packages.
The Sport Kit Upgrade adds a lowering kit, new sway bars, Brembo brakes and 22-inch wheels with low profile tires.
The Off-Road Upgrade, shown on the vehicle in the video above, has a much longer list of features. On the outside, it includes a unique front and rear bumpers, larger LED lights in the front bumper, 20-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch Toyo tires and a suspension upgrade that levels the truck and lifts it by about three inches.
758 Horsepower at Work
The video begins with the Hennessey Heritage Edition F-150 rocketing down a test track, turning around and hitting the track again, drifting along the pavement as the supercharged V8 roars. After that stretch of hard acceleration, the driver stops for a quick, smoky burnout before making another rip down the track.
On this run, there is an inset look at the speedometer as the Hennessey F-150 climbs from 50 miles per hour to 100. The video ends with an assortment of lovely engine sounds and the truck rolls through the grass, reminding us that while this footage is all on-road performance, this particular F-150 can tear up the dirt as well.
