Hennessey Unveils Latest 6X6 Creation: Introducing The Goliath

Reveal / 15 Comments

Based on a Chevy Silverado, this truck means business.

Back in 2013, Mercedes revealed the G63 AMG 6x6, a six-wheeled, six-wheel-drive version of the already bonkers G-Wagon. This sparked a revolution in the custom truck world. Suddenly, everyone wanted to build their own 6x6 trucks. Among the many aftermarket companies that have shown off their own 6x6, Hennessey had one of the coolest with the VelociRaptor 6x6. It was based on the F-150 Raptor and tuned to produce 600 horsepower with only 50 units slated for proeduction at $349,000 a pop. If you wanted one of these awesome trucks but either couldn't get on the list to buy one or didn't fancy a Ford, don't worry, because Hennessey has a new six-wheeled truck just for you.

It's called the Goliath 6x6 (an awesome and completely appropriate name) and it is based on a Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss Z71. Like the VelociRaptor 6x6, the Goliath will be extremely limited and extremely expensive with only 24 slated for production costing $375,000 each. For that price, Hennessey has done a lot more than just add on a third axle with two extra wheels.

As with almost any car Hennessey builds, the power has been dialed all the way up. The 6.2-liter V8 has been equipped with a 2.9-liter supercharger so it now produces 705 hp and 675 lb-ft of torque. If that isn't enough, Hennessey says it will also offer a more powerful version with 808 hp. Hennessey estimates the truck will do 0-60 mph in "the mid-four-second range," likely on any terrain you put it on.

The Goliath also has plenty of visual cues (aside from the extra wheels) to set it apart as something special. Hennessey has added BFGoodrich off-road tires, LED lights, a new grille, and a rollbar. The price also includes a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty, which should come in handy if something breaks while you're conquering mountains or bouncing across sand dunes.
