Rezvani Hercules 6×6 Debuts With $225,000 Base Price And Optional 1,300+ HP Supercharged V8


Rezvani has taken the wraps off their new Hercules 6×6, which is being billed as the “god of all trucks.”

Apparently based on the Jeep Gladiator, the model follows in the footsteps of the Rezvani Tank but adopts an 8 foot (2,438 mm) bed and four rear wheels.

The truck has also been equipped with a roof-mounted LED light bar, a unique rear end, and sculptured metal sport bars which are available in a variety of finishes including the bronze seen here. Other highlights include customizable wheels that are wrapped in 37-inch off-road tires.

While the exterior is pretty interesting, the cabin is little more than a dressed up Jeep. That being said, the Hercules 6×6 features an aftermarket Alpine infotainment system with a 9-inch display as well as Apple CarPlay compatibility. Customers can also order a Napa Leather package that includes premium leather seats and a suede headliner.

Under the hood, there’s a variety of engine options including familiar a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 285 hp (213 kW / 289 PS) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque. Customers can also opt for a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 which pumps out 260 hp (194 kW) and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm) of torque.

Fans seeking something more exotic can opt for a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS). If that’s not enough, the company will offer a “highly upgraded” version of the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that powered the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

According to Rezvani, the engine is bored out to displace 7.0 liters and then equipped with new pistons, a camshaft and a forged stroker crank. Thanks to these changes, the supercharged V8 will reportedly produce more than 1,300 hp (969 kW / 1,318 PS) and 989 lb-ft (1,341 Nm) of torque.

The first three engines will be offered with either an eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission. However, the supercharged 7.0-liter V8 is only available with an eight-speed automatic gearbox sourced from the Ram 1500 TRX.

Regardless of which powertrain is selected, all come with an on-demand six-wheel-drive system. It enables owners to switch between 6×2, 6×4 and 6×6 drive.

Speaking of performance, the Hercules 6×6 has been outfitted with a Fox racing suspension and Dana 60 axles which feature air lockers.

If the standard model isn’t interesting enough, there’s a Military Edition which features Kevlar armor, bulletproof glass, run flat tires, a self-sealing fuel tank, underbody blast protection and electro-magnetic pulse protection. The model also sports “ram bumpers,” a reinforced suspension, electrified door handles and a smoke screen system.

Other highlights include a thermal night vision system, an intercom, gas masks and “blinding” lights to hamper the visibility of would-be attackers. To cap things off, the Military Edition also includes hypothermia and first aid kits.

Pricing starts at $225,000 and climbs to $325,000 for the Military Edition. However, the options are outrageous as the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 costs $40,000 while the supercharged 7.0-liter V8 retails for $249,000 – that’s on top of the prices listed above, so the latter, costs from $474,000! In case you want to pretend spending your money on a Hercules 6×6, Rezvani has even made a configurator where you can go and customize it.
