Hennessey Performance Engineering, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle builder known for “making fast cars go faster,” has developed the world’s most powerful pickup truck — the Hennessey Mammoth 1000 TRX.
Using the factory 702-horsepower Dodge RAM 1500 TRX pickup as a base, Hennessey upgrades the 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat-sourced V8 to a fearsome 1,012 horsepower and 969 pound-feet of torque. As a result, the benchmark 0 to 60 mph sprint falls to just 3.2 seconds, making the colossal Hennessey Mammoth 1000 TRX the quickest pickup in the world.
The supertruck features modifications that have been engineered and tested by Hennessey, including a high-flow 2.65-liter supercharger, high-flow fuel injectors, and a high-flow induction system complementing Hennessey’s performance-boosting engine calibration — the supercharged V8-powered truck can achieve an 11.4- second quarter mile at over 120 mph.
John Hennessey, founder and CEO, is understandably proud of his company’s work. “The Mammoth 1000 TRX is the most powerful pickup truck Hennessey Performance has ever offered,” he says. “The stock RAM TRX already boasts the highest horsepower of any pickup you can find in a showroom, so our performance, styling, and off-road enhancements make this the most formidable new truck you can buy. We’ve already sold well over 100 trucks, with each answering one big question: ‘Why have a 1,000-horsepower pickup truck?’ It’s because we can!”
Owners opting for the Hennessey Mammoth 1000 TRX upgrade typically supply a well-optioned stock truck and add the Mammoth 1000 TRX package and the Stage 2 off-road enhancements (this popular kit adds custom bumpers, LED lights, a front leveling kit, 37-inch off-road tires, and upgraded electronic foldout steps). For owner’s peace of mind, the Mammoth 1000 TRX complete turnkey package comes with a two-year / 24,000-mile warranty. Hennessey ensures exclusivity for its customers by limiting production volumes; each truck is fitted with a unique chassis plate designating its build number.
