Hennessey Performance has just rewrote the rulebook on how to make a super-fast SUV.

Their Jeep Cherokee SRT8 does 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds. That is supercar pace. That speed is the result of a twin-turbo system installed on the HEMI V8 engine, which is upped from 6.4 to 7.0 liter, and therefore makes 805 bhp and 823 lb-ft of torque.

Hennessey Performance has proved many times that they don’t mind the type or brand of any car. If it’s got an engine they can make a monster out of it!

Check out their take on the Ram pickup, boosted with the HPE500 package for a total output of 505 hp. That makes it one of the fastest and most powerful trucks in the market, but probably not the prettiest.

To get that power out of the car’s 5.7 liter HEMI V8, Hennessey has bolted a TVS2300 Supercharger on it. That’s the main upgrade, of course they also improve some other components to cope with the extra power but don’t expect it to behave like a normal Ram.

Hennessey Performance, as the biggest American tuner, has apparently decided to tune every single American-made car! Even if it’s a heavy duty pickup truck.

Mind you this pickup truck is no ordinary pickup! It is the simply awesome Ford F-150 SVT Raptor which arguably is the coolest truck ever made! And Hennessey has done a brilliant job boosting its appeal.

The 5.4 liter Supercharged V8 engine of the Raptor now develops 501 hp and 520 lb-ft torque which means it can hit 60 mph from standing still in just 5.6 seconds and run a quarter mile in slightly more than 14 seconds!
