American automotive tuning company Hennessey Performance is known for its reworking of the RAM 1500 TRX, but its latest iteration is unlike anything else it’s ever made. Introducing the seven-seat RAM 1500 TRX-based MAMMOTH 1000 SUV, this machine is limited to just 20 units and takes what is arguably the king of trucks and turns it into a go-anywhere, do-anything SUV for all the family to enjoy.

Bespoke bodywork extends the roofline and offers a new C-pillar that sits above the rear tail lights to provide a truckbed covering that, inside, houses the third row of seats and plenty of storage in the trunk. At the rear, you’ll find two side windows tinted in near-limo black, as well as a sizeable rear window and a rear screen, and in typical Hennessey form you can barely tell that this is a custom design rather than something that came straight from the factory — it just looks absolutely right.

As for power, Hennessey Performance never fails to deliver. The supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine now produces 1,012 HP and 969 lb-ft of torque, which is good for a supercar slaying 0-60 MPH time of just 3.2 seconds. The model is also fitted with the tuning house’s off-road package as standard, adding a 2.5-inch lift, custom front bumper with LED lights, 20-inch Hennessey 10-spoke wheels, 35-inch off-road tires, and a front suspension leveling kit.

As mentioned above, only 20 of these SUVs are to be built. They will start from the base price of $375,000 USD before taxes and shipping. More information about the Hennessey Performance MAMMOTH SUV can be found on the company’s website.
