Down in Sealy, Texas an automotive company known as Hennessy has been making headlines as the creators of the worlds’ fastest road car. Now, that same company is again making news with the creation of the 2021 Hennessey Mammoth 1000 Supercharged Ram TRX Pick-up Truck. Hennessey is clearly great at creating superior, over-performing vehicles. They are also good at staying in the news. Developing short, easy-to-remember vehicle names? Not so much.
Getting one of these pick-up trucks will make you a part of an exclusive club as only 200 of these 2021 Hennessey Mammoth 1000 Supercharged Ram TRX pick-up trucks are being produced. This is the most powerful Ram truck produced by Hennessey with a monster 1,012 bhp Supercharged 6.2-L V8 engine. Outside, its throaty voice is impressive. Inside, it is surprisingly muted and almost calming.
As its lengthy name indicates, the truck is built upon the highly regarded 2021 Ram 1500 TRX platform. Hennessey engineers, however, apparently aren’t satisfied leaving well-enough alone. Instead, they have set upon a path of re-imagining, re-thinking and recreating the core of this vehicle into the Mammoth 1000.
The tinkering included an upgraded supercharger, stainless steel headers, heavy-duty upper and lower pulleys, a high-flow fuel injector system, a crank-case ventilation system and a high-flow exhaust system. The HPE (Hennessey Performance Engineering) team also performed its own series of performance upgrades, enhancements and calibrations. The results were impressive. The horsepower rose from 702 bhp to 1,012 bhp. That’s a 30% increase. Torque increased from 650 lb-ft to 969 lb-ft of torque, almost a 50% increase. Imagine getting that much more power and strength from your current vehicle. Yes please.
Hennessey didn’t stop under the hood, however. The Hennessey Mammoth Off-Road Stage 1 Package includes 20”, 10-spoke wheels, an extra 2.5” lift and a custom front bumper with LED lighting. This truck has 35” off-road tires, a front end leveling kit and conveniences like an electronic bed cover and electronic fold-out steps. Each of these special edition trucks is road tested for up to 200 miles prior to being sold and each comes with a 2-year, 20,000-mile warranty. Each of the upgraded trucks is finished with its own uniquely serial numbered plaques. Of course, Mammoth and Hennessey badging adds to the branding of this exceptional truck. This is the whole package, especially for the chosen few who will find one of these in their garages.
Have you ever wished your pick-up truck had 30% more horsepower or 50% more torque? Ever wanted to be a part of a unique club of truck owners that others literally look up to? Hennessey just may have the answer. It is the 2021 Hennessey Mammoth 1000 Supercharged Ram TRX Pick-up Truck. You can just call it the Mammoth 1000.
