Watch Hennessey’s Maximus 1000 Jeep Gladiator Tear Up the Desert
The guys at Hennessey Performance recently started producing the first of their Maximus 1000 Jeep Gladiators, and to celebrate the launch, they released a little bit of video footage of the beastly custom truck taking to the desert.
This incredibly powerful version of Jeep’s pickup truck packs a wallop, making 1000 horsepower thanks to a seriously upgraded 6.2 liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine. Equipped with an off-road suspension and tires, along with heavy duty axles and driveshafts, this monster is ready for some serious speed as it tears through sand dunes.
Not only does this truck’s stainless steel exhaust sound incredible as it zooms through the desert, it’s capable of catching some major air too. I sure would love to get behind the wheel of one of these someday, as I’m a sucker for high speed baja-style driving. Hennessey plans on making just 24 of these powerful trucks, each priced at $225,000 complete.
