Hennessey Goliath 700 Released, Drag Races a Stock 6.2L Silverado
HPE will produce a total of 100 units.
The Hennessey Performance Team, known for some of the most powerful trucks on four (and sometimes six) wheels, has released an insanely fast truck, dubbed the GOLIATH 700. The top feature is a supercharged and tuned upgrade, and it's now in production for all 2020 GMC Sierras and Chevrolet Silverados with the 6.2L V-8 in full-swing production. Get them while they're hot—Hennessey only plans to produce a total of 100 units per year.

While the GM trucks that include the already powerful 6.2 liter V-8 are capable of making 420 hp, Hennessey takes it a few steps further with a 2.9-liter supercharger that produces 6 pounds of boost for a total of 700 hp. But the supercharger alone is not how you make 700 ponies. A camshaft, upgraded pushrods, and serious dyno tuning are all part of the package, as well.
Although the "drag" version you see before you was not equipped as such, the GOLIATH 700 also includes Hennessey's Stage-1 Off-Road package, complete with a 6-inch lift, custom 20-inch Hennessey wheels, 35-inch off-road tires, a custom Hennessey front bumper with LED lighting, and a whole bunch more. The full list is below.
"The demand for upgrading luxury pickups is at an all-time high," said company founder and chief horsepower extractor, John Hennessey. "A serious truck should have serious power, and the GOLIATH 700 delivers on this mantra. We're offering a complete turnkey power package with warranty that delivers an exciting driving experience both on- and off-road."
But what's a bunch of numbers on the page if you can't go out and prove it, right? Hennessey did some extensive testing and came up with 0 to 60 numbers of just 4.3 seconds, a huge improvement over the already impressive 5.4 seconds for the standard 6.2L-equipped Silverado 1500. Hennessey then got a little creative in backing that claim. They put a stock 6.2L V-8-powered Silverado 1500 up against a Goliath 700-equipped model in a good old-fashioned drag race (except with multiple camera angles, of course). The results were impressive. The Hennessey truck walked away from the stocker like it wasn't a 420-horsepower, 460 lb-ft truck from the factory!
Here's where it gets interesting: You can order the GOLIATH 700 Supercharger package for $29,950 and the Stage-1 Off-Road package with 6-inch lift, HPE wheels, Toyo tires, and custom GOLIATH front bumper with LED lighting separately for $18,950. Other options you can add in are a stainless steel exhaust system, drop-down side steps, a custom leather interior, and an electric retractable bed cover.
If you're a whole-ball-of-wax type of buyer, you can purchase the GOLIATH 700 package outright, including the base Chevy or GMC truck, for about $105K directly from Hennessey Performance (www.hennesseyperformance.com). You can also go through your local Chevrolet or GMC dealer. These GOLIATH 700 monsters even come with a 3-three-year/36,000-mile warranty for all of the Hennessey improvements.
