And it sounds delicious.
There are few places that love powerful pickup trucks as much as the US, but travel far enough into the Southern Hemisphere and you'll eventually stumble across a magical place called "Australia" where locals love to burn rubber and supercharge V8s just as much as we do. Australian tuners Walkinshaw Performance recently teased its interpretation of what a performance truck should look like: a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with a massive blower strapped to the engine. Walkinshaw Performance Is no stranger to tuning offroaders, and its latest offering comes in two flavors: Fury 1, and Fury 2. Both pack a serious punch.
The company has shared a sound clip on Instagram revealing the brutal sound of its supercharged creation, and we must admit, it sounds absolutely savage. In stock form, the 6.2-liter V8 under the hood of the Silverado 1500 produces 420 hp and 460 lb-ft, and details around the supercharger kit are scarce, but expect to see power levels in excess of 670 horsepower, and a torque peak of around 630 lb-ft. That represents a power hike of more than 50 percent. This power bump is accompanied by the company's 'Fury Pack' options that add interior and exterior mods.
The Fury 1 package adds 18-inch Method wheels wrapped in Goodyear all-terrain rubber, a healthy two-inch lift, and a cat-back Walkinshaw Performance sports exhaust system. To show off the fact that this ain't no ordinary Silverado, Walkinshaw adds a shadow chrome tailgate badge along with a slew of Fury decals. For those looking for an even more special experience, the Fury 2 package includes 20-inch Method wheels wrapped in 285/60 rubber. Behind those wheels sit a set of six-piston brake calipers with 15.75-inch front rotors. This sounds like a pretty impressive offering, but with no way of getting these products here besides dirt import, it might be more cost-effective to shop around locally for similar offerings. Expect the Walkinshire packages to go on sale in the first quarter of 2021.
