American studio Hennessey shared images of the final version of the 1000-horsepower Gladiator pickup. You can see the high-performance all-terrain vehicle live next week in Las Vegas at the SEMA 2019 Special Equipment Festival.

Tuning workshop Hennessey took as a basis the usual Gladiator pickup truck, but the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hellcat took the place of the standard 3.6-liter 289-horsepower “six” under the hood. Thanks to the modernized fuel system, refinement of the engine software, replacement of the exhaust and the installation of a more efficient cooling system, we managed to bring the return to 1014 horsepower and 1264 Nm of torque!

In addition, Hennessey engineers replaced the standard suspension with an off-road King spring kit with a 152 mm increase in clearance, strengthened the transmission, factory tires gave way to BFGoodrich tires. Thus, the total ground clearance of the Gladiator Maximus exceeds 400 millimeters, which does not prevent the all-terrain vehicle from accelerating to hundreds in four seconds – faster than the BMW X5 M of the outgoing F85 generation.

Externally, the Gladiator Hennessey stands out for its non-standard power bumpers, additional LED lighting, “drop-out” footboards and a reshaped salon with atelier logos.

It is known that the “charged” pickup will be released in a limited edition of 24 copies. The initial price has already been announced: the base Maximus will cost 225 thousand dollars, 4.5 times more expensive than the most equipped with the “usual” Jeep Gladiator.
