Does it have enough space for camping necessities? Is it the most suitable vehicle for overlanding? If you’re buying this then these questions shouldn’t bother you. Hennessey’s Mammoth 1000 TRX Overland Edition will be the fastest camper wherever you take it. Kind of ironic, now that we think about it.
Applicable to any Mammoth 900/1000, it costs $19,950 and includes a load of camping goodies for the truck. For starters, there’s Nimbus’ quick-to-set-up hard-shell rooftop tent with a retractable 55-inch awning and a ladder to access the tent. You also get a pressurized water reservoir on the bed rack that holds eight gallons. The Overland Edition also gets dual auxiliary fuel tanks; probably one of the bigger necessities, knowing that A) the regular TRX gets 12 MPG overall (and that’s without Hennessey’s magic touch) and B) unless you live in your 1000 HP truck, you’ll need enough fuel for going to the campsite and the trip back home.
The truck also gains electronic fold-out side steps, extra LED lights, and grab handles. The brand also throws in a fancy-looking shovel and a 28-inch splitting axe, for situations that require you to dig up ground for camping activities or helping your truck get out of a tricky situation (given the power this thing has, it’ll require real talent to get it stuck), and cutting up firewood. Or anything that needs to be split up. Not living things, hopefully.
But that’s not complete without the optional stage 1/stage 2 off-road enhancement kits, which, according to the tuning company, is likely to be opted by customers along with the Overland Edition. Stage 1 has 35-inch offroad tires and “professional installation”, while Stage 2 gives bigger 37-inch tires and electronic fold-out sidesteps. Both feature custom Mammoth front and rear bumpers.
According to CEO John Hennessey, the Mammoth 1000 TRX Overland Edition “the ultimate adventure-oriented vehicle as it adds off-the-grid capability to the world’s most powerful pickup. There’s nothing else like it,” and we can guarantee that. While everyone else goes into the wilderness with vans and perhaps pickup trucks with modified beds, you’re sure to be on the site first, thanks to the 6.2-liter V8 equipped with Hennessey’s 2.65-liter supercharger, sending 1012 horsepower and 962 lb-ft of torque to all four wheels. It has a top speed of 201 km/h, but it also weighs a little over 3 tons. Guess that shovel will see some use; no wonder it’s dubbed the Mammoth.
