Hennessey plans to unveil 1,000 hp pickup


Tuning studio Hennessey has announced a 1000-horsepower version of the Ram TRX pickup. The machine will become the successor to the monstrous Hellephant. A video was released in which John Hennessy talks about the most powerful engine for the future novelty.

Hennessey Performance is known for loving to put a lot of power into almost any vehicle. The tuner from Texas (USA) already has plans for a 1000-horsepower version of the already powerful Ram TRX pickup – this version of the car will be called the Hennessey Mammoth. The project was announced earlier this year. “For those who just hate the tiny 6.2-liter Hellcat V8, Hennessy has a different plan,” the video says.

In fact, Hennessy prefers to call this project “Hellephant Madness”. This is the title of a new video from the Texas tuner announcing the plan, but the entire upgrade process does not end with an engine swap. In a four-minute video, John Hennessy introduces us to all the updates that the receiver of the monstrous Mammoth will receive.

The Stellantis Mopar division launched the Hellephant engine in 2018.

The displacement of 7.0 liters is a nod to the legendary 426 Hemi V8, which powered many muscle cars in the era of classic muscle cars. The modern version of this motor is equipped with a supercharger and boasts 1000 hp. in its standard version, although there is a catch. Mopar refers to this engine as “designed for street and off-road vehicles built before 1976”.

In any case, Hennessy says that it has not yet been fully decided which car will act as a donor for the atelier’s project. The 1,000-horsepower monster can be built on either the powerful Durango SRT SUV or the high-performance Ram TRX pickup truck.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Hennessey presented a 1000-horsepower version of the McLaren 765LT. Renowned tuning studio Hennessey has increased the engine power of the British coupe McLaren 765LT to 1000 horsepower. Also, the car received changes in the exterior and interior.
