Hennessey Gives Chevy Silverado Extra Pair Of Wheels, Calls It The Goliath 6×6

After turning the Ford Raptor into a six-wheeler, Hennessey Performance decided to do the same for the 2019/2020 Chevrolet Silverado. The result is this, the aptly named Goliath 6×6.

The very first example of the new Hennessey truck, which was first previewed back in 2018, is based on the Trail Boss Z71 and comes with a complete 6×6 conversion featuring an all-new rear suspension system along with an extra axle.

In addition, the whole truck gets an eight-inch suspension lift kit, a set of 20-inch Hennessey wheels wrapped in 37-inch BFG off-road tires, new bumpers, a roll bar, LED auxiliary lights and a custom, longer bed. Like all Hennessey’s products, it also comes with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty.

“We are very excited to offer our new Goliath 6×6 alongside our Velociraptor 6×6 truck,” said company founder and 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.”

Power is provided by GM’s 6.2-liter V8, which can be further upgraded with the company’s 2.9L supercharger and boost output to 705 HP and 675lb-ft (914Nm) of torque.

The first example of the Goliath 6×6 wass sold to Bob Berrard, a noted auto enthusiast and owner of the largest potato farm in the state of Wisconsin. “We are so excited for Bob and greatly appreciate having him as our first Goliath owner,” said John Hennessey.

The tuning specialist plans to build 24 examples of the Goliath 6×6, each sarting at $375,000, which includes the cost of a brand new Silverado.

    That video was actually pretty informative. I was wondering how the rear axles are driven, and if both are, how they manage to move independently of one another. It looks like there is a mini driveshaft connecting the two with a sliding section, kind of like a slip yoke, which allows the two differentials to get closer and farther from each other as the suspension articulates.

    Does Hennessey actually come through with their customers cars yet, or are they still having issues in this area?
    The stories coming out over the last few years of paid for customers parts being re-directed to another project without permission, cars not being delivered etc, etc, seemed to have cleared up recently, or are they just not being reported as frequently?

      I hope those issues have been resolved because that is not something you want a tuning shop to be known for.

    Hennessey would be better served to find a way to create his projects at an “everymans” payscale.

    Thats not a Goliath, that is just a normal size truck with extra set of wheels.. a proper Goliath would be something like the monster trucks, or say something like that:

    I’m just saying they got the name wrong. But thats just me.

      Gotta love those Sherp machines. They’re extremely capable and oddly cute, IMO.

      • Bash

        Yes, I always find it fun watching these things tackle all kind of terrain.

          The real test will be taking it to the local mall and seeing how it handles the speed bumps.
