Hennessey Performance Engineering has upgraded another model. It’s the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Goliath 6×6 by Hennessey. This muscle car is significantly different from the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. First of all in motor characteristics, with fewer differences in design, but a significant upgrade of the undercarriage. Surelly, it will be interesting to compare it with other Hennessey Performance models, especially with the Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6×6.
As far as the outer design is concerned, there is a noticeable similarity with the new generation Chevy Silverado. The design of the front and rear bumper and LED headlights is almost identical. However, the radiator grille is similar, but instead of the “Chevrolet” logo, inscribed are “Hennessey” letters. Also, the same letters are also seen on the tailgate, and a roll bar is also installed. In addition, it has a stainless steel exhaust system and a Brembo brake package. With a lot of upgrades, we put it in the invented “Apocalypse-proof” safety rating. Unfortunately, the interior design is not known. We hope that they will have leather seats and steering wheel, and certainly automatic climate control. Of course, we expect a large touchscreen at the central console.
Based on the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Trail Boss. What sets it apart is the eight-inch lift kit and an all-new rear suspension system. It is significantly larger in dimensions, especially in the length of the cargo area (installation of the third axle). It is also heavier, probably with higher payload and towing capacity. The offer is a crew cab with four doors, designed to accommodate five or six passengers. Mounted on 20-inch wheels with 37-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires.
Surelly, the biggest difference is in the drive system. The 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine has instaled HPE700 engine upgrade programs (with 2.9-liter supercharger). The production of this system is 705 hp and 675 lb-ft (915 Nm) of torque. According to the manufacturer, for an acceleration of 0 to 62 mph it takes about 4.5 seconds. Also, with an additional upgrade, they claim that it is possible to get as much as 808 hp. It’s likely to have an 8-speed automatic transmission.
According to some sources, the base price of 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Goliath 6×6 by Hennessey is $ 375,000. It is about to start selling soon, but it is certain that only 24 pieces will be produced. It also offers a three-year warranty and 36,000 miles.
