2020 Jeep Gladiator transformed into the Hennessey Maximus
Posted on June 7, 2019
I don’t cover these things very often as custom conversions are usually either just a power upgrade or change the car so much that it stops being the original. Not so with the Hennessey Maximus. It is a 2020 Jeep Gladiator turned up to 11 but with the base car still very much in evidence. If you wanted a Jeep but wanted more, this is the car to get!
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is a solid foundation with which to build a custom car. Hennessey
have taken the supercharged 6.2-litre Hellcat V8 engine and tuned it to deliver a stonking 1,000 hp. The stock engine has received a serious internal tune with the HPE1000 Engine upgrade, custom exhaust, upgraded fuel system, new radiator and likely more to deliver that four figure power.
Drive has also seen the love with a six inch lift, upgraded suspension, new 20 inch wheels with all-terrain tires, new front and rear bumpers, modified front and rear lighting and a custom interior with leather and custom embroidered seating. It also comes with a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty.
Yours for just $200,000 USD. Production is limited to just 24 cars, so you had better move fast if you want one!
2020 Jeep Gladiator
The 2020 Jeep Gladiator is one of the most hotly anticipated vehicles of this year. Requested for years and almost begged for by fans, it has finally arrived and is delivering on its promises.
The design is all Jeep and needs no introduction. Much more than just a Wrangler with a truck bed, this is a new vehicle with a lot to offer. The front end is all Jeep with the round lights vertical grille and extended fenders. The windshield is slightly more raked but the flat roof is still reminiscent of the Wrangler. At the back is a load bed with space for most payloads.
The cabin has been improved too and is a nice place to spend time. The longer wheelbase makes for a much smoother ride and you can tell while driving. You still get an excellent view of your surroundings and can spec the interior to be basic and wipe clean or leathery and luxurious. Either way, it is well laid out and an easy place to live.
The Pentastar 3.6-litre V6 is more than up to the task. With 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, there is nowhere this vehicle cannot go. With a manual or automatic transmission, four wheel drive and the ability to town up to 7,650 lbs, it’s no slouch.
While the Hennessey Maximus may have taken things to the extreme, the 2020 Jeep Gladiator is plenty enough car for most of us. Check it out at Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram
