Hennessey Performance once again proves that bigger is always better with the monstrous Goliath 6x6.
Oh, Hennessey. It seems like only yesterday you were making the Ford Raptor into a 6x6 monstrosity called the VelociRaptor. That evidently wasn’t enough for you, was it? You had to give Chevrolet the same treatment. You just couldn’t leave the other American truck makers alone, could you? What’s next? A 6x6 Ram 1500?
In the meantime, we have the Goliath 6x6. What started life as a humble 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss Z71 extended cab has been turned into this horrific monster through the use of forbidden alchemy and long forgotten dark magic.
To start, Hennessey gave the stock 6.2-L V8 their HPE700 upgrade, which mostly involves a new stainless steel exhaust system and a 2.9-L supercharger. These changes boost power to 705 hp and 675 lb-ft, which Hennessey says will allow the Goliath to have a 0-60 time of around 4.5 seconds despite the fact it’s carrying an extra set of tires.
Speaking of which, Hennessey gave the Goliath the same 6x6 treatment as the VelociRaptor, which means a new axle, new pair of wheels with tires, a third set of brakes, and another suspension to handle the new 6x6 configuration.
That suspension also lifts the truck 8-inches. As though the Goliath needed to be more imposing. Imagine seeing this thing in your rearview?
With the new extended wheelbase, the Goliath gets a larger bed to keep things covered and a new rollbar to try and keep things relatively stable. New 20-inch Hennessey wheels are wrapped in chunky BFG 37-inch off-road tires just in case you feel the need to turn off the highway and start driving through open fields.
Just remember that pretty much nothing will get you out of the mud if you get stuck.
Hennessey also offers an optional 800 hp upgrade for those who find 700 hp to be not enough, as well as optional Brembo brakes and a full custom interior.
Pricing starts at $375,000, which actually includes the cost of the truck this time. Production will be limited to just 24 units, so if this monster truck is something you both want and can afford, you’d better act fast.
