REZVANI HERCULES 6X6 TEASED AGAIN: DEBUTING IN A FEW WEEKS

It’s Expected To Be The “Most Powerful 6 Wheeled Truck” In The World

Originally unclear as to whether or not the Rezvani Hercules 6×6 was either going to be based on the Jeep Wrangler SUV or Gladiator pickup truck, now we now. The teaser photo recently shared on the company’s Instagram page clearly shows a truck bed, meaning that there’s strong likelihood of being born from the frame of the Gladiator. But that’s not the most exciting part. Because what we’re getting a glimpse at here is something that Rezvani promises to be “the most powerful 6 wheeled truck on Earth.”

That’s a rather bold statement, considering the competition. Mainly from Hennessey Performance Engineering, which seems to have the aftermarket cornered on an array of 6×6 pickup trucks. First it was the Hennessey Velociraptor 6×6, a six-wheel-drive F-150 Raptor with 700 horsepower. Then came the Chevrolet Silverado-based Goliath 6×6, which eventually got 800 horsepower. Most recently there’s the Ram 1500 TRX based Mammoth 6×6, with 1,200 horsepower courtesy of a Mopar Hellephant crate engine. Yes, the bar is high, but considering Rezvani upfits its vehicles with stuff like bulletproof armor and EMP protection, perhaps leapfrogging Hennessey in a horsepower war isn’t all that insurmountable.

The proof of concept for the Rezvani Hercules is the Rezvani Tank. Seemingly the vehicle of choice for feudal warlords, it can be configured in a full military-grade bulletproof spec, and the option to fit the 1,000 hp Dodge Challenger Demon engine.

Like the Rezvani Tank, the Hercules 6×6 truck should have a properly luxurious interior, and lots of military inspired tech. This includes the aforementioned EMP defense system, as well as a thermal imaging camera. Step up to the Military Edition, and your SUV becomes fully bulletproof with bomb protection and other doomsday goodies. Expect the Hercules to follow the Tank and offer a military protection spec.

Rezvani hasn’t revealed pricing for the Hercules, but if the Tank is anything to go by, it’ll be very expensive. The Tank starts at $155,000 before any of the plentiful options, and the Military Edition begins at $259,000. We guess the Rezvani Tank 6×6 will start well north of $200,000 and will likely go above $300,000 with all of the options. Still, you can preorder the Hercules with a surprisingly affordable and refundable $266 deposit. While the original reveal timeline for the Rezvani Hercules was this summer, we’ll happily take a late 2020 reveal, all things considered.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.
