Hennessey 1000 Jeep Gladiator: Desert Tests

American tuning studio Hennessey presented a modified Jeep Gladiator named as MAXIMUS in May last year. The special edition was limited to 24 copies. After releasing its fourth pickup, the company sent it out into the desert to show how it would handle the sand dunes.

The video turned out to be quite exciting and does not let go until the last second. It seems that the pickup is not subject to the laws of physics and can hover over the dunes. These car features are due to the fact that Hennessey significantly redesigned its powertrain. In particular, the model received a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 Hellcat engine with a power output of 1000 hp and 1650 Nm. The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system.
