Hennessey’s TRX MAMMOTH 1000 Takes On Tesla’s Cybertruck

While Not An Apples To Apples Comparison, Its Still Fun To Watch...

In the realm of automotive battles, there are few showdowns as eagerly anticipated as the clash between tradition and innovation, between raw power and electrifying performance. Enter Hennessey Performance, renowned for pushing the boundaries of horsepower. In their latest YouTube video, the Texas tuner puts its high-performance Ram 1500 TRX-based MAMMOTH 1000 up against the futuristic Tesla Cybertruck.

Hennessey’s MAMMOTH 1000 isn’t your average pickup truck. It’s a beastly creation, boasting over 1,000 horsepower and nearly 1,000 lb.-ft. of torque, thanks to a potent cocktail of supercharging and performance enhancements. On the other side, we have Tesla’s Cybertruck, a symbol of the electric revolution, with its stainless steel exterior and silent electric drivetrain.

While the ranging-topping Cyberbeast variant hasn’t been released to the public just yet, the truck that Hennessey got their hands on is the new Foundation Series Cybertruck AWD. Thanks to a dual e-motor setup, the 6,600 lb. Cybertruck produces 600 horsepower and can do 0 to 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds.

Hennessey’s own Pennzoil Proving Ground set the stage for this drag race. 

From the get-go, it was evident that the MAMMOTH 1000 meant business. With a thunderous roar, it launched off the line, its supercharged V8 screaming as it devoured the tarmac. The Cybertruck, with its instant electric torque, put up a valiant fight, but it couldn’t match the sheer brute force of the MAMMOTH.

Without the lack of official timing, it leaves room for speculation. It would have been better to see a stock TRX paired up against the 600-horsepower variant of the Cybertruck. However, the MAMMOTH 1000 is a highly-tuned powerhouse that delivers far beyond the stock TRX’s capabilities.

Nevertheless, the showdown is still fun to watch. We are sure there will be more battles in the future between the TRX and the Cybertruck, whether it revolves around Hennessey or not. Consider it a clash of ideologies, a battle between tradition and progress, that catches our eyes. 

But while the Cybertruck might be the future, the supercharged HEMI under the hood of the MAMMOTH 1000 sure gives us a thrill of excitement just listening to that supercharger whine—a true winner in our book.
