Hennessey Puts The New 2024 Ranger Raptor On The Dyno

So How Much Power Does The New Ranger Raptor Put Down To The Wheels?

Hennessey Dyno Test The 2024 Ford Ranger Raptor. (HPE).

Ford’s high-performance off-road Raptor line has produced some amazing products since it debuted on the F-150 in 2009. But what may be the most anticipated pickup of the year, the new Ranger Raptor, is finally here.

Besides all its suspension goodies, what makes the Ranger Raptor special compared to the rest of the lineup is its Ford Performance-tuned twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, delivering 405 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. To help put that power down is a 10-speed automatic transmission. But how much of that power makes it to the wheels?

Dyno tests are always interesting because they give us a more accurate idea of how much power a vehicle is putting to the ground after factoring in drivetrain losses.

Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) recently got their hands on one of the new Ranger Raptors and strapped it to their dyno to get a baseline of the true power of Ford’s new midsize high-performance off-road truck.

After some pulls, HPE found that the four-door Ranger Raptor produced 349 horsepower and 403 lb.-ft. of torque. This is not too bad, as vehicles tend to lose 15 to 20% of engine power through the chassis from the flywheel when measured on a dyno. When doing the math, the results show that the Ranger Raptor lost around 13.8% in horsepower and 6.3% in torque.

We don’t doubt that HPE will probably have some fun tuning the Raptor to their specifications. Their F-150 Velociraptor has already proven itself, so we can’t wait to see how a Ranger version will turn out.
