Hennessey launches 700-horsepower pickups

May 14, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The famous tuning company begins production of 700-strong Goliath pickups based on the GMC Sierra. Hennessey plans to build around 100 trucks a year.

Hennessey took the standard Sierra with its 6.2-liter V8 with 420 hp. and decided to improve it. The company added a massive 2.9-liter supercharger that squeezes 700 hp out of the V-shaped GM-8. To cope with the new performance, the engine receives an upgraded camshaft and valve followers. A restyled Goliath 700 is also available for the Silverados with a 6.2-liter V8.

The Goliath comes with Hennessey’s own Stage 1 off-road package, featuring a six-inch lift, 20-inch wheels, 35-inch tires, a modified LED front bumper and more. These options also include 15.1-inch Brembo front brake rotors, a stainless steel exhaust system, lowering side steps and a Goliath brand cargo compartment lid.

The tuner convinces that the Goliath can accelerate to 96 km / h in 4.3 seconds, which is not bad for a tuned truck, the basic variation of which (that is, a regular Sierra without modernization) weighs about 2.5 tons. No doubt Hennessey Goliath, with all its updates, weighs even more.

The price tag of the HPE GOLIATH 700 package is $ 26,950, not including the price of Sierra itself. A stainless steel exhaust will cost an additional $ 2,750, while updating the brakes will cost another $ 7,950
