A beast that hungers for TRXs and Raptor Rs.
As Ford unveiled its revamped F-150 for the 2024 model year, including a beefier Raptor R, enthusiasts were left craving more. While Ford's upgrade was notable, it was Hennessey Performance that truly answered the call. Ignoring Ford's 5.2-liter Predator supercharged V8, the Texas-based tuning house chose instead to supercharge the 5.0-liter Coyote to a staggering 775 horsepower. This means that the Venom 775 overshadows Ram’s TRX, which pumps out a formidable 702 horsepower.

These trucks aren’t rolling off assembly lines en masse. Each Venom 775 proudly flaunts a unique serialized badge on the center armrest, marking its exclusive lineage - with only 250 builds in existence.
A peek into a recent showcase reveals the seventh Venom 775, and boy, is she a beauty! Its striking exterior paint, contrasting against black wheels and red brake calipers, ensures this truck isn't just heard but seen. And for those keen-eyed observers, the backlit Ford emblems are a touch of modern flair.
The transformation from a standard F-150 SuperCrew to the Venom 775 is nothing short of automotive alchemy. Originally, the truck boasted 410 pound-feet of torque. Post Hennessey's magic, it now commands an earth-moving 685 pound-feet, outmuscling both the 5.2-liter Predator and 6.2-liter Hellcat.
Hennessey's recipe for this beastly transformation? A hefty 3.0-liter supercharger from Whipple takes center stage, accompanied by high-flow air induction, a revamped fuel system, a growling Borla cat-back exhaust system, and their own engine management system.
The truck also enjoys a suite of upgrades - from an air-to-water intercooler to red embroidered Hennessey scripts adorning the headrests. Plus, with a three-year warranty, this beast isn’t just brawn, it's reliable too.
For those yearning for more than just asphalt adventures, Hennessey offers an enticing Venom 775 Off-Road Kit. Sporting a 6-inch lift, Toyo rugged-terrain tires, and an imposing front bumper with LED lighting, this isn't just a truck - it's an overlanding kingpin. All this, with a starting price tag that's a cool $100,000.
Hennessey's past pricing for the Venom 775, pegged at $53,500 in 2020 (excluding the donor vehicle), combined with Ford’s electric endeavors, hints that we might soon see Hennessey electrifying the tuning scene. Rumor mills suggest that Ford's all-electric F-150 Lightning might just get the Hennessey treatment.
While we await what the future holds, one thing is certain: Hennessey's Venom 775 Ford F-150 is a testament to pushing boundaries, both on and off the road. Here's to more TRXs and Raptor Rs for breakfast!
