The Hennessey workshop began testing the Jeep Gladiator Maximus, which has a 1000-horsepower engine under the hood. A pickup truck is tested among the sand dunes – springboards created by nature itself.

  The circulation of a pickup truck from a well-known atelier was 24 units. In contrast to the simple model, the novelty received an increased ground clearance of 150 mm, off-road tires BF Goodrich KD on 20-inch wheels and power bumpers. However, the main difference is the new 6.2 liter V8 engine, as noted in the workshop, producing 1000 hp.

A similar pickup costs 225,000 dollars. At the same time, the massive Gladiator already has one variation to conquer the desert. It’s about a modification of Mohave, which debuted at the Chicago auto show in February. Such a pickup has Fox shock absorbers that have a remote tank, 33-inch all-terrain tires Falken Wildpeak, which is worn on 17-inch wheels, and also Off-Road Plus mode, which can block the rear differential at high speed.

At the same time, the changes did not affect the engine: Gladiator Mohave received a 3.6-liter in-line power plant, developing 285 hp. and 353 Nm. The motor is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
