Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) announced today, that the high-performance aftermarket builder is taking the recently announced 2021 Ram 1500 TRX performance off-roader and creating a 1,200 horsepower 6×6 variant. HPE has built approximately 15 of its F-150 VelociRaptor 6X6 and Silverado GOLIATH 6X6 trucks to customers around the globe, which makes them the most exclusive vehicles from HPE in the company’s 29-year history.
For the Ram version, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX will ditch its 702 horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 in favor of a specially tuned supercharged 7.0-liter (426 cubic-inch) Hellephant HEMI V8. According to HPE, only three of these vehicles will be made, which will make it the most powerful and most exclusive truck ever offered by the company. It will also be the most expensive with a cost of $500,000 USD which includes the base price of a 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.
HPE has given their new truck the name, “MAMMOTH”. In addition to its all-new 6-wheel drive and all-new truck bed conversion, MAMMOTH 6X6 will have a fully upgraded off-road suspension, bespoke interior, upgraded front and rear bumpers with upgraded LED lights, and more.
“We are very excited about the Ram TRX,” said company founder and CEO, John Hennessey. “MAMMOTH 6X6 powered by a 1200 horsepower Hellephant motor is just a completely ridiculous idea, which is exactly why we are doing this. We are only going to build three examples which will likely make this the most exclusive and most expensive truck we’ve ever built.”
HPE says that it will only accept orders starting on Friday, September 4th, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. CST (Central Standard Time). Once the three orders have been complete, that will be it. People interested in the MAMMOTH 6X6 can contact the HPE at 1-800-897-0426 to place their order.
