World’s Fastest, Most Powerful Pickup Gets an ‘Overland’ Edition

You want to go overlanding, yes. But do you want to do it really fast? If so, this truck is for you.

Hennessey Performance surprised, not the world, but plenty of people this month when it revealed the Overland Edition of its Mammoth TRX — a truck the aftermarket tuner dubs the ‘world’s fastest and most powerful truck.’

I don’t know whether that’s a totally fair title, but it seems like it ought to be. That’s because the Mammoth 1000 puts out a staggering 1,012 horsepower and 969 foot-pounds of torque. So, it seems like an earned designation.

I’ll tell you more about how Hennessey got that much more power from the already uproarious Ram 1500 TRX. Before that, though, let’s talk about what makes the Overland Edition, well, overland-y.

With the Overland package, buyers get a bed rack topped with a Nimbus hard-shell rooftop tent, which is accompanied by a 55-inch awning from CVT. A couple auxiliary fuel cans are included, which you’ll need to fuel the 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, as is an eight-gallon water tank. 35-inch tires are mounted up around 20-inch wheels.

The rack is finished off with a shovel, shovel guard, and 28-inch ax. All of these overland accouterments, and professional installation, will set you back $19,950. That’s in addition to the $375,000 price tag of the Mammoth 1000.

But wait a Stage 2 kit is also available, which adds 37-inch tires, custom front and rear bumpers, electric-powered lowering side step, auxiliary LED lights, and a front suspension leveling kit.

If you’re wondering what makes the Mammoth so mammoth, well, it’s rather simple. Hennessey bolts up a 2.65-liter supercharger to the TRX’s engine, adds bigger fuel injectors, high-flow induction, and performance calibration to the ECU. This is how it goes from one of the fastest trucks on the planet to the claimed fastest.

The question you’re wondering, as am I, is whether this truck is really overland ready. The answer is: Sure, for the right person. Do you need 1,012 ponies? Naw, but it sure is neat to have, if you can afford to get it.

I suspect, though, no Mammoth 1000 owner will ever overland — even in their Overland Edition. It’s just one more flex to add to the garage.
