US tuner Hennessey Unveils Seven-Seat Ram TRX SUV. Bespoke Hennessey creation combines 1,012 hp and spacious luxury in limited-production run Hennessey Mammoth 1000 SUV.
Hennessey Performance, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle builder and tuner, has unveiled a new model for 2021 – the exclusive and luxurious Hennessey Mammoth 1000 SUV.
Boasting 1,012 hp from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8 and capable of 0-60 mph in a supercar slaying 3.2 seconds, the
new SUV can seat seven adults in comfort and is guaranteed to be exclusive with just 20 models being produced.
Based on the new Ram TRX, the enhancement by Hennessey Performance sees bespoke bodywork extend the
roofline to meet a new C-pillar that sits above the rear taillights. The bespoke conversion incorporates a sizable rear-
side window and adds a rear screen while retaining excellent luggage space behind the third row of seats.
“I have a big family with five kids and have always enjoyed owing big, powerful SUV’s. In 2012 we converted the first-generation Ford Raptor into our VelociRaptor SUV – I still own one today and love it. Now, we are excited to offer something very similar, but with a lot more horsepower, using the new Ram TRX truck as our base vehicle. Creating this king of SUVs offers our customers the ultimate combination of space, power and exclusivity,” – John Hennessey, Hennessey Performance founder and CEO.
The complete, turnkey, vehicle is built upon the highly acclaimed 2021 Ram 1500 TRX and supplied with a full three-
year, 36,000-mile warranty. Alongside the all-new bodywork, the Hennessey engineers upgrade the supercharger
system alongside new HPE engine calibration. This sees power output jump 310 hp to 1,012 hp while torque is
boosted by 319 lb-ft to a truly mammoth 969 lb-ft of torque.
The SUV variant also benefits from Hennessey’s Mammoth Off Road package, which includes a 2.5-inch lift, custom
front bumper with LED lights, 20-inch Hennessey 10-spoke wheels, 35-inch off-road tires, and a front suspension
The Hennessey Mammoth 1000 SUV production is limited to just 20 units with a base price of $375,000 before taxes and shipping. Each vehicle will be fitted with serial numbered plaques.
“That’s more than twice the $135,350 asking price for the Mammoth 1000 pickup, which has a planned 200-unit
production run for 2021, “wrote motorauthority.com. “Hennessey is also planning a TRX-based Mammoth 6×6,
powered by a 1,200-hp Hellephant crate engine. The company only plans to build three of these hulking trucks, each
with a $500,000 price tag.”
“This isn’t the first time Hennessey has converted a pickup truck into an SUV, wrote motorauthority.com. “The
company unveiled a Ford F-150 Raptor SUV in 2012, and launched a Ford F-250 SUV in 2015, the latter looking like
the modern-day Excursion the Blue Oval has shied away from building,” added motorauthority.com.
