The upcoming 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hennessey Maximus is coming to the dealerships this year. Gladiator pickup will become available in various trim levels and configurations. However, if you want the most aggressive version, then Hennessey Maximus is perhaps the best choice. This pickup is using a special Hennessey’s tuner, and we had an opportunity to see it at the SEMA show.
Thanks to the very same tuner, this model will generate a lot of horsepower and its torque ability is impressive as well. Overall, this pickup truck looks premium, tough, and it delivers great performances. Of course, the price will be far from affordable.
2021 Gladiator Hennessey Maximus Looks Aggressive
The all-new 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hennessey Maximus is one very off-road capable pickup truck. Hennessey did a great job in terms of exterior design. This model looks tough, aggressive and still upright like the regular Gladiator. The tuning manufacturer already did a similar thing with the VelociRaptor version. However, Gladiator will be unique in its own way. Styling cues are very similar, and everything starts with large steel bumpers. Both headlights and taillights are equipped with LED technology.
The headlights are perfectly combined with “Maximus” carved letterings. The front part of the vehicle looks beefed up and meaner than the regular Gladiator. This pickup will get new heavy-duty off-road axles, both on the rear and front driveshaft. A King off-road suspension is also available, and it delivers an additional six inches of ride height. Aluminum wheels are wrapped in new off-road tires and Jeep will provide all-new running boards.
Interior Gets Subtle Upgrades
Inside the cabin, the changes are less dramatic. The 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hennessey Maximus will get a couple of upgrades, including the upholstery and contrast stitches. The seats are looking different and will wear the company’s embroidery.
Leather upholstery is offered as standard, so the comfort will be at a high level. The shape of the air vents is slightly different, and you can find a lot of badges inside this pickup truck. Hennessey did it again, the interior looks very upright and modern, nothing less than we expected.
Hennessey Delivers Astonishing Performance
Under the hood, the new 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hennessey Maximus will hide a lot of power. The off-road pickup truck offers impressive figures, thanks to the latest Hennessey’s tuning. A 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat engine is available, and it provides 1000 horsepower. Moreover, this engine offers 933 lb-ft of torque. This is the only available engine, and it will use an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Engine’s nickname is Maximus, and you can see why. Interestingly, but Gladiator’s nameplate perfectly fits the pickup’s performance. Besides the new engine, Hennessey will install a new fuel system, new radiator and a new stainless-steel exhaust system.
2021 Jeep Gladiator Hennessey Maximus Price and Release Date
As we mentioned, the forthcoming 2021 Jeep Gladiator Hennessey Maximus won’t come cheap. Whatsoever, the price is far from affordable. A new pickup truck is available for $225,000. On the other hand, you can’t find such a powerful off-road-oriented pickup truck on the markets. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. The sales will start at some point in 2020, and this pickup will be sold in limited numbers.
