Hennessey Performance is showcasing yet another insane Ford F-150 build in their HPE750 upgrade.
It’s pretty safe to say that Hennessey will never change. We’re very familiar with their operating methods at this point, so there aren’t too many surprises when it comes to their Ford F-150 HPE750 upgrade.
First, the name gives us the expected crank horsepower of 750. According to Hennessey’s specs page, the actual power generated is 757 hp at 7,000 rpm. Rear wheel power is 570 hp, which represents a power loss of nearly 25%. Most carmakers would balk at such inefficiency, but Hennessey laughs at fuel economy and emissions.
Under the hood is the same 5.0-L V8 that a higher-end F-150 was born with, but now it’s been given a 2.9-L supercharger. Also installed are a new air-to-water cooling system, a new fuel system, and a stainless steel cat-back exhaust. Engine calibration and dyno-testing are all included as well.
Hennessey keeps the stock 10-speed automatic transmission, though. It’s hard to improve on what just might be the best transmission Ford has ever created.
A new video with Alex from Hennessey showcases the HPE750’s acceleration. Instead of a typical zero to sixty race, Alex proposes a zero to 100 mph test.
Since Alex lists off his speed in 10 mph milestones, and since YouTube has a handy timer with every video published, we can tell that the HPE750 takes roughly 6 seconds to go from 0-60 mph, and it takes roughly 13 seconds for the pickup to make it to 100 mph. For a truck, that’s very fast.
Also available with the HPE750 is the Sport Upgrade, which gives the pickup a lowered suspension, sway bars, and a set of Brembo brakes. Those brakes might come in handy given the truck’s excessive power.
For those more into off-roading, Hennessey also offers the Off-road upgrade, giving the HPE750 a new front and rear bumper (with an LED bar on the front one), some 35-inch off-road Toyo tires, and a 3-inch suspension lift.
All Hennessey products come with a 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty. Pricing will not include the cost of your V8-equipped F-150, so keep that in mind.
