GM Enters The Super-Truck Market With An 800HP SVE Yenko Silverado OFF-ROAD

Nov 20, 2020

Over the last decade, the high-performance truck sector has been growing at a near exponential rate, with models like the Ford F-150 Raptor and RAM 15000 TRX seeing a massive influx in sales. In an effort to get in on the action, General Motors has tasked Specialty Vehicle Engineering with turning its flagship Silverado pickup into a high-performance, go-anywhere muscle truck.

Dubbed the Yenko Silverado OFF-ROAD, the 2021 model truck is powered by the same monstrous supercharged 6.2L LT1 aluminum block engine from the road-focused version of the car. Equipped with a lightweight forged crankshaft, pistons, and CNC-ported cylinder heads, the heavily-massaged powertrain is mated to an upgraded automatic six-speed transmission and generates a cool 800hp and 720ft-lbs of torque. Available as a crew cab or double cab, the Silverado has also been bestowed with a 4” BDS lift kit with FOX shocks, six-pot Brembo brakes, and custom 20” alloy wheels shod in Nitto all-terrain rubber. There are also numerous optional add-ons including auxiliary lighting, side skirts, and other crash protection, to name a few. Pricing has yet to be revealed, though SVE has stated that production will be limited to only 50 units worldwide.
