Right now, Chevrolet can’t do better than the small-block V8 in the free-breathing specification of the Silverado 1500. The horsepower and torque values are more than enough for a lightweight pickup truck, but competition can deliver better performance. Much better, in fact, thanks to the forced induction.
On the one hand, we have Ford Motor Company with EcoBoost V6 and the plug-in Hybrid PowerBoost V6. Ram also joined the party for the 2021 model year, promising more than 700 hp from the all-new TRX.
However, GM has no plans to confront it as electricity is the name of the game for Detroit’s tallest Big Three. In no time, the GMC Hummer EV will be revealed with an impressive 1,000 hp, an impressive 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and a driving mode diagonal.
In other words, your only chance to take advantage of performance-driven Rados is to enter the secondary market. Hennessey has no choice but to upgrade the small-block V8 to eleven for the right price, and on this occasion the Texas tuner Goliath gave us 700 donuts to V8 and supercharger moan.
This kit consists of a 2.9-liter blower, high flow everything plus CNC mounting heads, warmer camshaft and solid Chromemoly propulsion rods every Goliath 700 comes with exterior and interior Hennessey badges, serial dashboard and engine panels, and a limited warranty.
Three years or 36,000 miles, to be more precise. In addition to the “standard package” if you can call it that, Hennessey Performance Engineering offers an off-road upgrade in the form of 35-inch Toyo rubber boots, and 6.0-inch wheels. 20-inch 10-bar design and sturdy goliath front bumper.
Want to guess how much these kids cost? Well, the power upgrade is close to $ 27K while Offroad Tricks add $ 15 to the total. Add the numbers up and include the starting price of the Silverado 1500 in the form of a Z71, and you’re looking for a truck that’s more expensive than the F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX.
