The most powerful pickup ever

The 6.2-liter engine delivers 1012 horsepower, 0-100 acceleration is just 3.2 seconds. These are the Hennessey Mammoth 1000 TRX numbers

In America they call them trucks, we simply call them pick-ups, what is certain is that these vehicles are the essence of “Americanness”; large, powerful and politically incorrect. However, there are some pick-ups on the market that amplify the elements so dear to their customers to the nth degree.

The “monstrous” pick-up is part of this small circle Hennessey Mammoth 1000 TRX, which already inspires fear from the name. The basis is that of the Dodge Ram, which the Texan company Hennessey has heavily modified. The result? The 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 it delivers 1012 horses, numbers that, according to the company, lead it to be the Most powerful and fastest pickup ever produced. To achieve this peak power, he fitted a new high-flow compressor, fuel injectors and an induction system.

Hennessey claims the changes allow the Mammoth 1000 TRX to sprint from 0-100km / h in 3.2 seconds. The Texan company will produce them 200 units, and has in any case specified that the specimens will also be shipped outside the United States. Founder John Henessey said: “Why have a 1000 horsepower pickup truck? Because we can “. The price? The Mammoth TRX 100 costs approx 150mila dollarsi (125 thousand euros), obviously with the optionals the price list can also rise quite suddenly.

Other upgrades available within specific optional “packages” include custom bumpers, LED lights, a front leveling kit, 20-inch wheels and up to 37-inch off-road tires. The size Mammoth 1000 TRX reach 581 cm in length, 209 cm in width and 197 cm in height. It can accommodate six adults, load up to 1043kg and tow a load weighing up to 3942kg.

The aesthetic is that of the muscular Ram pickup, but the elements added by Hennessey make it even more powerful. In fact, there is no lack of elements such as the specific wheels for off road, the protections positioned at the front and a modified bonnet to allow the V8 to breathe better.
