HENNESSEY MAXIMUS 1000 – THE ULTIMATE JEEP GLADIATOR
TEXAS TUNER UPGRADES THE 2020 JEEP GLADIATOR WITH 1000 HP HELLCAT SUPERCHARGED V8

Sealy, Texas (May 29, 2019) — Hennessey Performance has created the ultimate Jeep Gladiator: MAXIMUS 1000. The Texas tuning powerhouse has taken the new Jeep Gladiator truck and installed the 6.2L supercharged V8 Hellcat engine and turned the power up to 11. “We wanted to create the ultimate Jeep Gladiator,” said company founder and chief horsepower evangelist, John Hennessey. “MAXIMUS 1000 – the name says exactly what it is: Badassery on 4-wheels.”

THE 2020 HENNESSEY MAXIMUS 1000 INCLUDES:
  • New 2020 Jeep Gladiator Truck
  • 6.2L Supercharged Hellcat V8 Engine
  • 8-speed Automatic Transmission
  • HPE1000 Engine upgrade with 1000 HP & 933 lb-ft of Torque
  • ECU, Wiring Harnesses, Radiator, Fuel System
  • Stainless Steel Exhaust System
  • MAXIMUS Front & Rear Bumpers
  • LED Lights
  • Hennessey 20-inch Wheels
  • BFG 20-inch KD Off-Road Tires
  • Upgraded Suspension System with 6-inch Lift
  • Custom Interior Leather Upgrade with Hennessey & MAXIMUS Embroidered Seats
  • 3 Year / 36,000 Mile Warranty
Production is very exclusive and limited to just 24 units. The complete cost for the MAXIMUS 1000 is $200,000 US Dollars which includes the base Jeep Gladiator truck. Production will begin in July and build time for each vehicle will be approximately four months. The company plans to build two units per month.

“Our clients want exclusive, extreme vehicles that deliver a fun and exciting driving experience both on and off-road,” said Hennessey. “Win the crowd and you’ll win your freedom was the advice that the elder gladiator gave to Russell Crow in the Gladiator movie. We could not agree more!”

Holy Jeez! They’re making like 100k profit per vehicle. The hellcat crate engine is $16,800 on this site

Even if you upgraded everything all the way to the tires, your still prob like 40-50k tops even with labor + base price of the gladiator. If I was super wealthy and didn’t care about money I’d take one tho hahaha. Guess that’s why they do it!

They must be out of their minds.

A. 200K for a jeep
B. $750 per wheel

You can find similar wheels for $200 a piece lol.
Are the wheels forged? If they are, not a valid comparison.

$2995 per wheel, they are also for the Dana 60, so I don't even think they would fit on a stock axle, $12K for 4 wheels is insane, and I would bet they are forged like the Shelby R wheel which is about the same price.

I want to know where he found 5 lug Dana 60 axles. Or how he plans to keep 1000 hp cool. He's basically selling the wish-list of a 12-year old with no clue how to deliver what he's promised. All the photoshop is laughable at best

For those of you unfamiliar with Hennessey Performance's history I'll give you this (link) - just make sure you have hours of time to read up on how the company was able to make so many people so very unhappy. There are many threads on the same subject...

Long track record of separating people from piles of money leaving them very pissed off.

If they were the last company on earth to work with I'd stay away from them but that's just me

That's the Hennessey MO.

This thing is just stupid - 1000hp in a Jeep? You don't need 1000hp to go 1-2mph over some rocks. You don't even need 100. The only reason the current one needs 285hp is so it can cruise comfortably down the highway and tow stuff - and the engine isn't the limitation at the current rating.
