To build the Jeep Gladiator Hellephant, you swap out the engine with the 1,000 hp Hellephant powertrain and engine calibrations. 

The Hellephant engine comes from the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, which is the most powerful muscle car in the world. 

The AMW 1000 Hellephant engine is a 7.0-liter V8 engine with a 3.0-liter supercharger for 1,000 hp and 950 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a 4.125-inch bore, a 4.0-inch stroke, and a 10.0:1 compression ratio for gas use. 

This beastly engine features aluminum cylinder heads above the all-aluminum block with four-bolt main caps, a forged crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons, and powdered metal rods with floating pins. 

Plus, it induces a hydraulic roller camshaft and it’s paired with a TrackHawk eight-speed automatic transmission. 

How much is the Gladiator Hellephant? 

You can get the Jeep Gladiator Hellephant from America’s Most Wanted 4×4. However, they didn’t specify the exact cost of the conversion. If we had to guess, it isn’t cheap. 

The Hellephant crate engine costs $28,000 on its own. Then you need to factor in labor costs on top of your Gladiator bill.

The 2023 Jeep Gladiator starts at $39,620. Some models that are currently available cost between $117,000 – $270,000.

With the standard Gladiator, you get a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 285 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Adding Hellephant power is quite the upgrade. 

The Ford F-150 Raptor R features a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine with 700 hp and 640 lb-ft of torque. So, the Hellephant is ready to fight the Raptor R!
