By now, you must be wondering what Chrysler hasn’t shoved its mighty supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine into. It seems everything coming out of Auburn Hills, Michigan, these days is at least available with Hellcat power, which translates to 702 horses and up. While we wait with bated breath for, say, a Hellcat-powered Fiat 500L or Chrysler Pacifica minivan, let’s turn our attention to the latest Hellplant (Hellcat transplant): the Ram 1500 TRX. It gets 702 hp, making it the quickest pickup we’ve ever tested. Tuning outfit Hennessey thinks that isn’t enough and is developing the Mammoth 1000 version with a claimed 1,012 hp.
Don’t believe it? Well, Hennessey figured you might not, so it’s released a video of the Mammoth 1000 on a dyno, where it lays down some serious numbers. Granted, some of you might not be capable of fully removing your tinfoil skeptic’s hats, and we get that—we haven’t verified the dyno settings, nor have we run a Mammoth 1000 on a dyno for ourselves. So all we’ve got at this point is this video and Hennessey’s word that the 761 hp and 707 lb-ft of torque recorded at the rear wheels is accurate.
