A number of companies have developed six-wheeled vehicles following the success the Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6 and the latest is Hennessey Performance which has released details about their upcoming Goliath 6×6.
Similar to the company’s VelociRaptor 6×6, the Goliath 6×6 is a six-wheeled pickup which is based on the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss. Besides the additional rear axle, the truck has been equipped with a custom bed, an eight inch (203 mm) lift kit and 20-inch wheels which are wrapped in 37-inch BFG off-road tires.
Other upgrades include a roll bar and LED auxiliary lights. The model also has custom bumpers and plenty of Hennessey badging.
Besides the styling changes, the truck has a 6.2-liter V8 engine that has been equipped with a 2.9-liter supercharger and a new stainless steel exhaust system. Hennessey says these additions will enable the mill to produce 705 hp (525 kW / 714 PS) and 675 lb-ft (914 Nm) torque – an increase of 285 hp (212 kW / 289 PS) and 292 lb-ft (395 Nm). Thanks to the extra power, the company believes the model will be able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in the “mid 4 second range.”
If that’s not fast enough, the company also said there will be an option for a “stroker motor upgrade.” Hennessey didn’t elaborate, but the engine will have 808 hp (602 kW / 819 PS).
Production will be limited to 24 units and pricing starts at $375,000 (£284,362 / €318,643). Hennessey also plans to offer an assortment of different options including a Brembo braking system and a “custom interior upgrade.”
