The forthcoming 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6×6 is reportedly in the works. A few weeks ago, the TRX variant took the pickup truck segment by a storm. The highlight of this model is its astonishing V8 Hellcat engine that generates over 700 horsepower. Thanks to that, the TRX version comes with impressive performances and acceleration. Now, the Mammoth 6×6 is almost ready to hit the dealerships. This comes as a huge surprise by the Ram.
The manufacturer said it is the “Quickest and most-powerful mass-produced truck in the world.” Its name is Mammoth 6×6, and it will be produced by the famous Hennessey brand. This high-performance manufacturer already built two six-wheel trucks in the past. The first one is the iconic VelociRaptor, and the second one is Goliath. While these models are not affordable at all, the amount of power they offer is truly impressive.
Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6×6 Changes and Upgrades
As for the changes and upgrades, the new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6×6 will get plenty of novelties. Of course, the most notable innovation is an extra set of wheels. Moreover, this truck will get a bed conversion and more muscles. Hennessey made sure to deliver a beefier suspension and redesigned bumpers as well.
LED headlights are improved, and the elephant decal on the door shows which engine is under the hood. This truck will arrive with a bespoke interior, but we still don’t know all of the details. If the price reflects the level of luxury on the inside, then we expect a very superior interior design.
The highlight of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6×6 truck is its astonishing engine. It is a 7.0-liter Hellephant powertrain that replaces the 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat. The Hellcat engine is producing over 700 horsepower. However, the Hellephant engine will generate up to 1200 horsepower. That sounds astonishing, and Hennessey says it is the most powerful model ever built. At this point, we don’t know its fuel efficiency and torque rating.
The Hellcat engine delivers 650 lb-ft of torque, so we expect even more power from the Hellephant variant. According to Hennessey, the new Mammoth 6×6 truck accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds. Top speed is rated at 118 mph, and we expect nothing but an amazing performances. More details will become available closer to the release date.
2021 Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6×6 Release Date and Price
The forthcoming 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6×6 is available for an order. However, Hennessey will build only three models. The manufacturer says it is the most exclusive and most powerful truck ever made. For that reason, its price starts at $500,000. You read that well, half a million dollars.
We can’t wait to see this truck on the roads, which should happen at some point during 2021. Hennessey sold 13 examples of the VelociRaptor 6×6 model since its introduction in 2017. Moreover, Goliath was sold in two copies during 2019. Deliveries will begin soon, and Hennessey will release more details in the coming weeks.
