Leave it to Hennessey to combine supercar speed with room for cargo.
When it comes to imbuing cars with an exciting dose of pure, undeniable American performance, Hennessey seems to leave no stone unturned, and the HPE1000 upgrade that’s offered for the Dodge Durango is proof. As a canvas for improvement, the Durango is already formidable, with its all-wheel drive, and 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 engine. By all means, it’s a ludicrous performance SUV on its own. However, Hennessey found a level even further to take the Durango to, bringing its power to 1,000 horsepower, and to prove its incredible performance, Hennessey put it against a Lamborghini Aventador at the drag strip.

With its all-wheel drive, V12 engine, and engineering from bumper to bumper dedicated to pure performance, the Aventador is a tough opponent. However, in two separate drag races, the incredible power that Hennessey gave the Durango proved to be greater than the Aventador’s thoroughbred Italian performance. Done as an added bonus to a series of tests to ensure the build quality of the SUV, after that incredible victory, the 1,000-horsepower Durango will go on to its client, who will be able to enjoy its supercar-superior performance.
