There’s been a lot of talk lately about bringing the wooly mammoth back into the world, by means of cloning. Seems exciting, to be sure. A massive, powerful creature once again roaming the tundra. However, if you preferred a warmer climate, like Texas, you may already have seen a Mammoth or two. Of course we’re referring to the Hennessey Mammoth, which is a 1,000 horsepower truck based on the Ram 1500 TRX. 

The Mammoth TRX 1000

The Hennessey Mammoth is said to run customers around $150,000 USD, which includes the price of a Ram 1500 TRX required for the build. For 2021, HPE built 200 examples of these baddies, and that’s expected to stay the same for 2022. Speaking of, DuPont Registry posted that reservations for the 2022 model are now open. Orders for the 2022 model can be placed at many locations, including authorized Ram dealers, the Hennessey Performance website, or by calling the company directly. 

Hennessey has given the TRX a slew of modifications and upgrades, including a high-flow 2.65L supercharger, fuel injectors, and a high-flow induction system alongside performance calibration. Altogether, it increases the output of the 6.2-liter V8 truck to 1,012 horsepower and 969 lb-ft of torque, making the 0-60 of the TRX go from 4.5 seconds to 3.2 seconds which is supercar levels of acceleration in a package that weighs about 6,400 pounds. In combination with the Mammoth upgrade, Hennessey offers other options such as the Mammoth Off-road Stage 1 kit or the Stage 2 kit, adding a great many things to the truck, including a Mammoth Custom Front and Rear Bumper. The main difference between Stage 1 and 2 is the tire size added to the vehicle. Stage 1 gets a 35-inch tire, while Stage 2 gets a 37-inch tire. Hennessey also offers a 900 hp version, but we’re not sure what the point is. However, we do see a lot of point in a Hennessey Mammoth SUV.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
