This is the tuner’s second six-wheeled truck after the VelicoRaptor 6X6.
If you thought Hennessey’s new Hellcat-powered Jeep Wrangler was a crazy off-roader, the tuner’s latest creation makes it look tame by comparison. After introducing the VelociRaptor 6X6 based on the Ford F-150 Raptor, the Texas tuner has added a second six-wheeled truck to its lineup: say hello to the Hennessey Goliath 6X6.
The aptly-named Goliath was first announced last year, and now the first production example has been built for auto enthusiast Bob Berrard, owner of the largest potato farm in the state of Wisconsin. Based on the 2019/2020 Chevrolet Silverado, the Goliath 6X6 takes the already highly capable Chevy 4X4 and brings its off-roading prowess to a new level.
"We are very excited to offer our new Goliath 6x6 alongside our Velociraptor 6X6 truck,” said company founder & CEO, John Hennessey. "These are very exclusive and unique vehicles that make a huge statement anywhere our clients go – whether its Rodeo drive or the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert.”
Compared to the standard Silverado, the Goliath 6x6 gains an extra axle and rides eight inches higher above the ground. It also features a new rear suspension system, custom front and rear bumpers, a rollbar upgrade, LED lights, a custom 6X6 truck bed and 20-inch wheels wrapped in beefy 37-inch off-road tires. While these exterior upgrades make the Silverado look more menacing, the performance upgrades are relatively minor. Under the hood, power has been increased to 450 horsepower via a cold air intake and stainless-steel exhaust. Hennessey hasn’t said how this upgrade affects the Silverado’s performance.
Pricing for the 2019 Hennessey Goliath 6X6 starts at $375,000, which includes a new Chevy Silverado truck and a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty. Production is limited to just 24 units and the six-wheel truck is available for export to international markets.
