China Has Made Another Ford F-150 Clone, This Time Of The Raptor 17

The Chinese are back at it, creating a pickup truck that takes obvious design inspiration from the Ford F-150 Raptor.

Reports from China say that the vehicle comes from a company dubbed Projen and while sales of the pickup have yet to commence, we wouldn’t be surprised if the carmaker has some difficulties actually bringing it to the market.

Back in 2012, JAC Motors unveiled a direct copy of the Ford F-150 to its dealers in China. However, Ford managed to prevent the company from building the pickup, revealing to the press that it had gone to the trouble of securing design patents in China. Given the popularity of the F-150 Raptor, we’d be surprised if Ford didn’t also have patents for the hardcore pickup in China as well.

Either way, the design of the Projen is hilariously similar to the real thing. For starters, the blacked-out front grille is essentially identical to the Raptor, as are the headlights. Additionally, the Projen includes a silver skid plate, beefy wheels, tires, and tailgate and taillight designs similar to the Raptor.

If the Projen does somehow reach the production line before Ford steps in, it will allegedly carry a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine.

John Hennessey Drives The VelociRaptor 6×6, Says It Feels Like A Military Vehicle 13

Say what you want about Hennessey’s new VelociRaptor 6×6, but you cannot overlook its level of badassery and head-turning ability.

For some select consumers, those attributes alone might be worth the $349,000 that the company command for the truck in the States.

John Hennessey believes that despite its off-road potential, most owners will park it “in front of a fancy restaurant or hotel”, and “that’s okay, because they’ll have something that’s very unique and special”.

Hennessey went for a short spin in a VelociRaptor 6×6, saying that it feels like a military vehicle, with a huge towing ability, and plenty of power thanks to the 600hp 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine. However, this is a very subjective first insight into the six-wheeled 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor crew-cab, as it comes from the company’s founder.

Hennessey admitted that he would gladly take this VelociRaptor 6×6 for an off-road session, but since he was sitting inside an example that was headed to its owner in Florida, he had to restrain himself.

During the short video, Hennessey said that besides the initial batch of 50 units, all of them made for the US market, they will build 50 more, for the rest of the world, so if you’re looking to splurge on your very own example, then you should make a deposit very soon.

Hennessey’s New VelociRaptor Shows The Earth Who’s Boss 9

While Hennessey’s new six-wheeled VelociRaptor has stolen the headlines in recent weeks, the tuning company’s ‘regular’ four-wheel VelociRaptor 600 Twin Turbo is still a potent bit of kit.

In order to show off the performance capabilities of the modified Ford F-150 Raptor, Hennessey has dropped a clip of the car ripping up the dirt near its facilities in Texas.

Admittedly, the ‘off-roading’ depicted in the video isn’t much more than some bumpy grass, so we don’t get a chance to see what the truck is really capable of.

Nevertheless, it does perfectly capture growl emitted from the twin-turbo V6 engine, overhauled to produce 600 hp at 6,000 rpm and 622 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 rpm.
