Hennessey Performance Introduces Its 2020 Goliath 700
Speed is their specialty, and HPE has done it again with a supercharged power package for Chevy/GMC pickups.
Goliath! Technically, it's a biblical name. However, in the truck scene, and when it comes to bad-ass performance rigs, Goliath is the moniker that speed mavens at Hennessey Performance Engineering of Sealy, Texas, are using for their latest go-fast package, highlighted by a Whipple 2.9L intercooled supercharger that transforms 6.2L V-8-powered 2020 Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierras into wickedly fast (0 to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds), 700-horsepower rocket rigs.
"The demand for upgrading luxury pickups is at an all-time high," says company founder John Hennessey. "A serious truck should have serious power. We're offering a complete turnkey power package with warranty that delivers an exciting driving experience both on- and off-road."
If you have a truck and are buying la carte, HPE's $29,950 Goliath 700 package features the aforementioned blower (making 6 psi of boost), as well as an upgraded camshaft and pushrods, professional installation in the truck, and dyno tuning. Hennessey and Goliath interior/exterior plaques, badging, and HPE embroidered headrests also are included.
To make things complete, owners can add an $18,950 (installed price) Stage-1 Off-Road package, which gives the exterior and interior Goliath-specific identities through a 6-inch lift, Hennessey-branded 20-inch spoke wheels, 35-inch Toyo tires, a custom Goliath front bumper with LED lighting, and Hennessey/Goliath exterior graphics.
Optional upgrade are available at additional cost. The modifications include:
- Goliath diamond-stitched interior, $5,950
- Goliath ram-air hood (installed), $5,950
- Stainless-steel catback exhaust (installed), $2,750
- Retractable electric bed cover, $4,450
- Upgraded electric fold-out steps, $3,450
Of course, one-stop shopping is doable, and for a starting price of $105,000, interested buyers can blast away from HPE or any of its authorized Chevy or GMC dealers in a Hennessey Goliath 700 (built off base-model trucks).
Every Goliath 700 package is protected by a three-year/36,000-mile warranty for the Hennessey-added upgrades. Consult the Hennessey Performance website for more information and ordering: www.hennesseyperformance.com.
