Last year, Hennessey Performance Engineering debuted the Goliath 6×6 – a six-wheeled Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 EcoTec3 L86 engine making 705 horsepower and 675 pound-feet of torque.
Now, the Texas-based tuning company has released a four-wheel-drive version of the Goliath, which is available either as a GMC Sierra or a Chevrolet Silverado.
Both the Hennessey Goliath Sierra and Silverado are offered as Stage 1 or Stage 2 models. The Stage 1 package adds custom ‘Goliath’ front and rear bumpers, 20-inch Hennessey 10-spoke wheels, 35-inch Toyo off-road tires, a lift kit and ‘Goliath’ exterior graphics. Meanwhile, the Stage 2 kit includes the same wheels and graphics kit, but ups the ante with a taller six-inch lift kit, larger 37-inch Toyo tires, an upgraded suspension and aftermarket electronic folding side steps.
Both the Goliath Stage 1 and Stage 2 kits feature a 700-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 with a 2.9-liter supercharger and other upgrades like a cat-back exhaust, high-flow induction system, upgraded pushrods and HPE engine management calibration, among others. Hennessey says the truck will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds – impressive when you consider the truck’s air-resistant shape, huge off-road tires and significant weight.
The best part about the Hennessey Goliath Sierra and Silverado is that they are available to order directly from General Motors dealerships. They also come with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty as well. GM may not have a factory-developed answer to the Ford F-150 Raptor, but for now, Hennessey appears to be filling the gap in the automaker’s lineup.
Pricing for the Goliath is not yet available, but like most Hennessey creations, we imagine it won’t come cheap.
