From Hennessey’s ever-expanding and intriguing world of ‘Why not?’ comes the Jeep Gladiator powered by Dodge’s 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat engine.

The Jeep Gladiator Maximus 1000 offers 1,000 horsepower, 933 lb.-ft. torque and a check-your-pants zero to 60 mph time of 3.9 seconds. The mid-size marvel was revealed at SEMA in Las Vegas.

“We wanted to create the ultimate Jeep Gladiator,” said Hennessey Performance Engineering founder and chief horsepower evangelist, John Hennessey. “Maximus 1000 – the name says exactly what it is: Badassery on 4-wheels. We are excited to unveil our first production Maximus with the Shell Pennzoil team at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.”

Production is limited to just 24 units. The Maximus 1000 is priced at a memorable $225,000 which includes a new 2020 Jeep Gladiator truck.  Maximus can be ordered directly from Hennessey or through authorized Jeep dealers throughout the U.S.

“Our clients want exclusive, extreme vehicles that deliver a fun and an exciting driving experience both on and off-road,” said Hennessey.  “Our Maximus Jeep with 1000 horsepower is pure ridiculousness on four wheels.  What other vehicle can climb to the top of Aspen Mountain with a KTM dirt bike in the back in the morning and then run 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds at the dragstrip later the same day?”
