Silverado-Based Hennessey Goliath 6x6 Hits the Market
Chevy Counterpart to Velociraptor 6x6 Boasts 450 hp, Eight-Inch Lift
Hennessey Performance Engineering, one of the tuning world's most famous names, is turning its attention to the 2019 and up Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and it's doing it in a big way: Meet the Hennessey Goliath 6x6. Featuring an additional axle on the rear of the truck, the Goliath 6x6 is a Bow Tie foil to the company's other six-wheeler, the F-150-based Velociraptor.
Limited to just 24 units and demanding a pretty prodigious $375,000, the Goliath 6x6 is more than just an additional axle and some custom bodywork. Hennessey fits the Goliath's 6.2L V-8 with a cold-air intake and a stainless steel exhaust that lets out a phenomenal bellow under heavy throttle, and the easier breathing allows the Chevy to make an easy 450 hp Hennessey will also add a 2.9L supercharger and/or a stroker kit to the engine for the right price, and we'd imagine those mods to add another 300 ponies to the stable. Those bits will be fleshed out and priced at a later date.
The truck also benefits from an 8-inch lift, including Fox 2.0 shock absorbers all around and thoroughly revised suspension geometry befitting the truck's new drivetrain layout. Hennessey says the truck will get 37-inch BFGoodrich off-road tires, although the photo truck seen here wears Toyo Open Country A/T hoops, wrapped around the tuner's 20-inch wheels.
Aside from the obvious cosmetic changesâ SIX-WHEEL DRIVE! âthe Goliath 6x6 features a custom truck bed, lengthened and restyled to accommodate the rolling stock. The bed also boasts a rollbar upgrade to bolster the heavy Chevy's safety report card. Hennessey front and rear bumpers add an appropriate amount of aggression (but where's the winch mount?) and the truck also features standard LED lighting. Inside, the truck gets an optional Hennessey upholstery package, including Goliath 6x6 embroidery for the seats.
The Silverado 1500 Trail Boss-based Goliath 6x6 is available now directly from Hennessey or through select Chevrolet dealers. We'll check our couches for spare change and see if we can float the down payment.
