The new truck from Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) is a colossus. The new Hennessey Goliath700 GMC Sierra Denali pushes the envelope in terms of luxury and power, delivering exactly what enthusiasts have come to expect from the company.

The truck started life as a GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. It originally had a 6.2-liter V8 under the hood that get 420 horsepower. Hennessey upped the horsepower to 700 by adding a 2.9-liter supercharger at six pounds of boost. The company upgraded the camshaft and pushrods as well and tuned the truck on a dyno.

Hennessey added their Stage-1 Off-Road package to the model. The package includes a six-inch lift, custom 20-inch HPE 10-spoke wheels, 35-inch Toyo Off-Road tires, custom HPE bumper with LED lighting, Goliah front bumper, five LED lights in the front bumper, and Hennessey and Goliath exterior graphics. Hennessey backs the package with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.

"The demand for upgrading luxury pickups is at an all-time high," said company founder and Chief Horsepower Evangelist, John Hennessey. "A serious truck should have serious power and the GOLIATH 700 delivers on this mantra. We're offering a complete turnkey power package with warranty that delivers an exciting driving experience both on and off-road.

On top of the price of the truck from the dealership (starting at $62,485) the cost of the Hennessey truck includes $26,995 for the Goliath 700 Supercharger package and $14,950 for the Stage-1 Off-Road package.

Buyers can choose to add a Brembo 15.1 inch front brake upgrade, stainless steel exhaust system, drop-down side steps, a GOLIATH-branded interior, and an electric retractable bed cover for an additional charge.

The Hennessey Goliath 700 can be ordered directly from Hennessey Performance or by visiting any GMC dealer.

Off-road performance truck

Shelby American announces new Ford F-150 Raptor

Shelby just announced the new truck, which has a starting price of more than $124,000.

Shelby American

The third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor is a true off-road menace, with a strong turbocharged V6, beefy tires and shocks, and a luxury-level interior. Most people would consider the truck overkill for all but the hardest-core off-road enthusiasts, but the wizards at Shelby American have other ideas. As it has done with Ford vehicles for years, Shelby gave the new Raptor a performance makeover, and the finished product is quite impressive.

The F-150 Raptor is already a capable beast, but Shelby turns things up a few notches. Performance upgrades include a performance intake and high-flow filter, an aluminum intercooler, a tune that pushes power to more than 525 ponies and 610 pound-feet of torque, a Shelby exhaust, and a BDS lift kit. The Shelby Raptor rides on 18-inch wheels with 37-inch BFG KM3 Mud Terrain tires.

If you’re thinking Shelby slaps a few go-fast parts on the Raptor and calls it good, think again. The truck’s interior features embroidered custom leather upholstery and exclusive floor mats. A unique serial number plate is mounted in the dash. Shelby also fits billet racing pedals, carbon fiber accents, and deep tinted windows.

Outside, the Raptor gest several touches to let everyone know it’s not a standard Ford. A special Shelby hood with intake and extraction vents is standard, along with power side steps with rock sliders. A bevy of Shelby logos and badging grace the truck’s body, and both bumpers have been replaced with steel units to accommodate light bars and additional tow points.

If you’re hoping to be one of the insane few to own a Shelby Raptor, get your wallet ready. The truck’s base price starts at $124,820, which includes the MSRP of the truck itself. That said, it’s unclear how extreme demand and supply chain issues will impact Shelby’s ability to get new trucks to modify.

Toyota teases new SUV that could be updated Sequoia

The teaser image gives zero detail on the new SUV.

Toyota

Toyota recently retook the title of world’s largest automaker and has its sights set on refreshing some of its oldest models. The Tundra full-size pickup truck got the treatment late last year, and now we’re seeing teases of a new SUV from the auto giant. The image, released yesterday, is likely of a new Sequoia, which is based on the Tundra and is equally as overdue for a refresh.

After 15 years or so on sale in its current form, the Sequoia is old enough to earn a learner’s permit of its own at this point. All of its competitors offer newer and more intuitive technology, a larger variety of advanced safety gear, and more efficient powertrains. In the teaser, we can see a sharply chiseled rear quarter panel and shapely tail lights, but not much else. If it is a Sequoia, the styling marks a significant shift in the SUV’s outward appearance.

The shadowy image is the only tidbit Toyota has shared so far, but we can draw some information from the recently released Toyota Tundra pickup truck, with which the Sequoia typically shares a platform and powertrain elements. The all-new 2022 Tundra dropped the 5.7-liter V8 that powered it for years, in favor of a pair of twin-turbo V6 engines, one of which is a hybrid. That means we could see a new Sequoia with the same engines, delivering up to 479 horsepower.

The new full-size SUV will likely also get some of the tech updates that Toyota bestowed upon the new Tundra. That could mean up to a 14-inch infotainment touchscreen with a new, more intuitive user interface and over-the-air updates. Refreshed safety features are almost certainly on the list of Sequoia changes as well.

Toyota hasn’t nailed down an official reveal date or any other information for the new SUV, but has said that more details are coming soon.
