Chevy Silverado 1500 Transformed Into 850-HP Muscle Truck

Special Editions / Comments

This is what freedom looks like.

Chevrolet has been struggling with numerous production hiccups and a short supply of engines for its truck and SUV lineup in recent months, but you can't keep a good thing down. The updated version of the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 was recently revealed, and not a minute later, Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) announced the existence of two hardcore versions: the Yenko/SC Silverado Off-Road and Yenko/SC Silverado Lowered. These two muscle trucks promise massive performance and look awesome. The off-road version is based on crew cab and double cab variants of the standard Silverado. The 'Lowered' version is available in crew cab, double cab LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country spec.

Both trucks share the same supercharged 6.2-liter V8 featuring forged aluminum pistons, CNC-ported cylinder heads, and a forged twisted steel crankshaft. These mods result in a power output of 850 horsepower, and a huge 800 lb-ft of torque. These engines should sound fantastic thanks to a set of stainless steel headers and high-flow catalytic converters. Power is sent to the wheels via a strengthened eight-speed automatic transmission. The off-road model features a four-inch BDS lift front to back with Fox shocks, 20-inch wheels wrapped in Nitto Ridge Grappler off-road tires, a heavy-duty rear sway bar, and upgraded bushings. For some added visual impact, the off-road version features a black sports bar, the prerequisite light bar, wide fender flares, beefy side steps, and a bunch of custom decals. A composite tailgate and HD recoil traction bars are also included in the deal.

The Yenko/SC Silverado Lowered is a street-focused machine riding on large 22-inch wheels wrapped in Nitto NT420V tires and features a two-inch suspension drop in the front and a five-inch drop in the rear, as well as a slew of cool graphics and a black tonneau cover. Both trucks also feature a unique grille and front fascia design. Both models are covered by a three-year/36,000-mile limited warranty, and only 50 examples will be built for the 2022 model year, with pricing yet to be announced. With the Silverado ZR2 incoming, now is a great time to be a Silverado fan.
