A Chevrolet dealer in St. Augustine, Florida is looking to part ways with one of the most over-the-top pickup trucks ever conceived, the Hercules 6×6 unveiled by Rezvani a couple of years ago.
Rezvani’s stupendous pickup is based on the Jeep Gladiator but has undergone so many modifications that you could be mistaken into thinking it is a completely bespoke truck built from the ground up. Obviously, the most significant change made to the Jeep is the fitment of a third axle and two additional wheels at the rear, housed beneath an extended bed that now stretches 8 feet. Rezvani has also fitted the truck with Fox racing suspension and Dana 60 axles complete with air lockers.

The company, based out Los Angeles, then crafted all-new body panels for the pickup. The wild looks start at the front end where the ultimate six-wheeled pickup has a blacked-out front grille, new headlights, and a steel front bumper with two tow hitches. It then features bespoke front quarter panels and re-skinned doors while riding on a set of aftermarket wheels finished in black and wrapped in 37-inch off-road tires. Other highlights of the exterior include the distinctive taillights, black bumper, and the sports bar over the bed.
Rezvani offers the Hercules 6×6 with a handful of different engines, starting with the familiar 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) as well as a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 delivering 260 hp and 442 lb-ft (600 Nm). This particular example is rocking a 6.4-liter naturally-aspirated HEMI V8 rated at 500 hp. The listing notes this engine is coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission and that the truck has been driven 650 miles (1,046 km).
As you may have guessed, the Hercules 6×6 isn’t cheap. In fact, the dealer is asking $249,995 for it, roughly 6.5 times the starting price of a Jeep Gladiator.
