Hennessey's 1,000-hp Ram TRX has entered production.
After the 702-horsepower Ram 1500 TRX debuted last year, it was only a matter of time before Hennessey Performance extracted more performance from the already potent pickup truck and took it to the next level. Enter the insane Hennessey Mammoth 1000 - a Ram TRX with, you guessed it, up to 1,012 hp and 969 lb-ft of torque on tap. That's an increase of 310 hp and 319 lb-ft over the standard truck, earning it the title of the "world's most powerful pickup." If that's too much for you to handle, Hennessey also offers a 900-hp variant. Now, to commemorate the start of production of the super-truck, Hennessey has put together a mammoth display of horsepower and noise.
Since the Hennessey Mammoth debuted earlier this year, Hennessey has already received over 100 orders for heavily modified pickup. Production is limited to just 200 units, so you may want to act fast if you were thinking of placing an order.
At the start of production, Hennessey already has over 30 Ram TRX trucks at its factory waiting to be converted into 1,000-hp beasts. To show them off, the Texas tuner gathered a selection of them at its proving ground to create an epic 15,000-hp stampede of Ram TRX trucks charging down the track like a pack of wild bulls being released from their pen. As you would expect, hearing so many Ram TRX trucks roaring at the same time sounds spectacular.
To extract more power from the TRX's 6.2-liter V8, Hennessey has been upgraded with a high-flow 2.65-liter supercharger, new fuel injectors, and a high-flow induction system. With this extra muscle, the Mammoth 1000 will accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and blitz the quarter-mile in 11.4 seconds at over 120 mph.
An Off-Road Stage 2 package is also available, which includes a LED lights, custom bumpers, a front leveling kit, 37-inch off-road tires, and upgraded electronic fold-out steps. With the Off-Road Stage 2 package installed, the Hennessey Mammoth 1000 will set you back around $150,000, but it seems even that massive sum isn't enough to frighten buyers who are almost queueing up to place their orders.
