Despite being rare & a bit absurd, there are quite a few options available in the market. Some of these are one-offs while some are near production level vehicles. Here we’ve rounded up the best 6×6 trucks now on the market –
Best 6×6 Vehicles on the Earth
1. Mercedes Benz G 63 AMG 6×6
Coming directly from the manufacturer, this six-wheeler has the advantage of being built from the ground up than making adjustments to the already existing vehicle for turning it into a six-wheeler. This also means that the engine is finely tuned by the company’s in-house tuners, sprucing this vehicle’s 5.5L Biturbo up to 544 hp & 561 foot-pounds of torque. It is also accompanied by TPMS to tune the front & rear axle separately. It is also 11 inches taller, 9 inch wider & 44 inches longer than a standard G63.
2. Kahn Defender Flying Huntsman 6×6
Everyone admits that the Land Rover Defender is a legendary piece of automotive history. It has been used for military, off-road purposes & general use. Taking it a step further, people at Kahn Design have turned it into a six-wheeler without changing the design language of the Defender. This monster is powered by a 6.2L V8 engine generating 430bhp. The company has made the vehicle 47 inch longer & 6 inches wider to accommodate fat tires.
3. Henessey Velociraptor
Hennessey, the minds behind the powerful ‘Hennessey Venom’ model entered into the 6×6 truck range with the Velociraptor. Named after the prehistoric predator, this is the beefed-up version of the popular Ford Raptor. This truck gets a twin-turbo V8 engine upgrade, providing it with over 600 hp. It also comes with optional Brembo brakes, upgraded LED lighting & even armouring system.
4. Devel Sixty
This is what happens when the minds that created a 5000 hp supercar try to make a 6×6 truck. Devel Motors, the company popular for its sports car ‘sixteen’ has created this absolute monstrosity powered by a 6.7-litre V8 turbodiesel making 720 hp & 737 foot-pounds of torque. The car comes with military-style wheels with a winch at each end of the vehicle for recovery. It lets six people sit inside it with aircraft like cabin accessed by a similarly styled door. It also comes with night vision as standard.
5. Rezvani Hercules 6×6
