2019 Hennessey Goliath Is a 700-Horsepower, Six-Wheeled, $375,000 Silverado

Supposedly only 24 units will be produced, so good luck spotting one in the wild… the 2019 Hennessey Goliath.

Hennessey GoliathIt’s not often that we associate a 2019 Chevy Silverado with having six wheels, 800 horsepower, and a $375,000 price tag, but that’s exactly what Hennessey has created with its newest monster: the 2019 Hennessey Goliath 6×6.

Got an extra $375,00 to spare?  Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630 and we will be happy to arrange delivery of your Hennessey Goliath Silverado.

The Texan tuning company has managed to build the ultimate off-road variant of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss Z71, exactly like they did with the Ford F-150 based Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6. Under the hood, Hennessey worked its magic on the stock 6.2-liter V-8 which pumps out 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque by adding its HPE700 upgrade, which adds a massive 2.9-liter supercharger that produces 7 psi of boost. The end result is a staggering 705 horsepower and 675 pound-feet of torque.2019 Hennessey Goliath

However, folks who aren’t satisfied with the 705-horsepower V-8 will have the option to upgrade to an 808-horsepower stroker motor—and hopefully, that will do the trick.

The Goliath 6×6 is fitted with a host of visual and performance upgrades, most notable of which is the addition of a third axle and an 8-inch suspension lift. Additionally, the Goliath also gets 20-inch wheels wrapped with 37-inch BF Goodrich off-road tires, a custom bed-mounted roll bar with an LED light bar, and new bumpers at the front and back. Additional options include a Brembo brake setup and custom interior features that enable customers to make their Goliath 6×6 truly their own.

Even with the additional weight of the third axle, Hennessey expects that the Goliath will be able to accelerate from zero to 60 somewhere in the four-second range.

The vehicular monstrosity has a starting price of $375,000, but the good news is that the eye-watering price tag also covers the cost of the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss donor truck and comes with a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty. See, it’s not that bad.

If you are currently in the market for a six-wheeled, supercharged pickup truck with up to 808 horsepower, you better act quickly because Hennessey is only planning on building 24 copies and once they’re gone, they’re gone.2019 Hennessey Goliath red exterior rear shot

2019 Chevy Silverado Power Tailgate

The 2019 Chevy Silverado Power Tailgate is finally here!

This awesome power tailgate has an electric motor and gear reduction in the bottom of the tailgate (replaces a torsion bar) and a pair of power-assist closure latches similar to Corvette doors closed once you close them.

There are 4 easy ways to use this new feature.

  1. Manually.  Yes, you can still open and close the tailgate by yourself.  But, when you open/close the tailgate manually it will start to come down or raise up by itself so don’t be surprised.
  2. Use the key fob.  Press the tailgate button twice quickly to open.  Press the button once and then again quickly and HOLD it to close the tailgate.
  3. There is a rubbery (electronic touchpad) button in the center top of the tailgate you can press to open or close the tailgate.
  4. There is a button in the cabin area (located in the center of the truck under the radio) you can press to power open/close the tailgate.

And yes, it IS still possible to remove the tailgate. Just unplug the power and camera connection near the middle of the base of the tailgate, then undo a retaining bolt at the right-side pivot (the motor reacts against this solid mount when raising and lowering the gate). The left side is a free rotating pivot. The change to aluminum for the tailgate saves way more weight than the motor and power latches add back in, so you’ll have an easier time manhandling this gate off and on. Loads on the tailgate are carried by the same cable straps you find on any pickup.

In addition there are safety features that won’t allow the tailgate to shut if fingers etc. are in the the way, or if items are resting on the tailgate.

The full power tailgate will be standard on High Country models and optional on LTZ models.
