If Chevrolet’s new Silverado is too small for you, Hennessey Performance Engineering has the only answer. The 2019 GOLIATH 6×6 rides on all-new suspension that is 8″ higher than stock. Based on the Trail Boss Z71, it arrives with 37″ BFG off-road tires and Hennessey 20″ wheels. Named after the meanest Philistine, it is doubtful a slingshot will do much damage to this giant.
A Hennessey-fabricated roll bar to include front and rear facing LED strips, and six massive brake rotors will keep you safe. Your choice of differential ratios will be turned by 705 horsepower. The 6.2-liter V8 offered in the Silverado is essentially the same engine as the base-model Corvette and the Camaro SS. Give it a little boost and it responds with massive gains. Their 2.9-liter supercharger makes 7 psi, which translates to 675 lb-ft of torque at 4,200 rpm. Even with power split between 6 wheels, the 0-60 time is estimated to be in the mid-4 second range.
This doesn’t mean the Velociraptor 6×6 is ending, John Hennessey said: “We are very excited to offer our new GOLIATH 6X6 alongside our VELOCIRAPTOR 6X6 truck,” said company founder & CEO, John Hennessey. “These are very exclusive and unique vehicles that make a huge statement anywhere our clients go – whether its Rodeo drive or the sand dunes of the Sahara desert.” Due to the complexities and the build time needed, only 24 examples will be produced. The price of $375,000 includes a new Silverado along with a 3-year/36,000 warranty.
