Hennessey Goliath 6x6 is a toughened-up Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss
We didn’t expect anything else coming from Hennessey
6x6 vehicles are a rarity but if tuners keep offering conversion kits that take regular trucks and turn them into such monsters, that might not be the case anymore.
Remember Hennessey’s VelociRaptor 6x6? Well, apparently, it needed a counterpart based on a truck from Chevrolet’s stable, and that counterpart came as the Hennessey Goliath 6x6.
Essentially a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss truck, the Goliath 6x6 retains the 6.2-liter V8 but with a little bit of Hennessey magic in it - the HPE700 upgrade that uses a 2.9-liter supercharger with 7 psi of boost.
The result involves 705 hp at 6,200 rpm and 675 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm, with 0-60 mph sprint times “expected to be in the mid 4-second range.” That’s mighty quick, considering the added weight of the 6x6 conversion kit.
Speaking of which, the conversion adds an additional axle, wheels, tires (BFGoodrich 37-inch off-road ones) and brakes – duh – but also a new rear suspension setup, a custom truck bed as well as an eight-inch lift kit.
Hennessey is asking $375,000 for the Goliath 6x6. The price includes the base 2019 Chevy Silverado pickup truck, but customers can go even further and opt for the 808 hp motor upgrade, Brembo brakes, and a custom cabin.
We’re also told that Hennessey is building just 24 units, but they’ll gladly ship them to international markets. Are you hearing this, dear sheikhs?
