The first 2020 Jeep Gladiators only started storming dealerships nationwide last month, but that's all the time Hennessey Performance needed to create the "ultimate" rendition of the Wrangler-pickup hybrid. 

Like many other customs from the madcap Texas tuner, the Hennessey Maximus 1000 Jeep Gladiator received a 6.2-liter, supercharged Hellcat V8 transplant, jacking the output up to 933 lb-ft of torque and 1,000 horsepower—nearly four times more than that of Chrysler's stock 3.6-liter V6.

A new stainless steel exhaust system, branded bumpers, LED lights and leather interior upgrades also come with the package, as does upgraded off-roading capability courtesy of a six-inch lift kit, 20-inch Hennessey rims and matching all-terrain tires.  

Forget about the standard Gladiator's best-in-class towing—this modded 4x4 can out-haul trucks way above its weight class and then burn them in a drag race.

"The name says exactly what it is," company founder John Hennessey said of the build. "Badassery on four wheels,” 

Production, which will begin in July and take four months per order, is limited to just 24 models.
