Since GM hasn’t done it yet, Southern Comfort Automotive and Lingenfelter Performance teamed up to deliver us the Reaper; a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado that aims to reap the sales of the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. Armed with salvo of off-road tools, such as 17-inch beadlock wheels around 33-inch off-road tires, a Fox Racing suspension system, a high clearance bumper, reinforced skidplate, and an integrated floodlight system, the Reaper seems to have the credentials to prey on the Raptor.
It also probably didn’t take you very long to notice the reshaped front fascia. It’s… different. There’s also unique body graphics and badge work to help let everyone know that they’re not just staring at an ordinary Silverado. Just behind the revised grille, however, is a Lingenfelter supercharged V8 engine producing 550 hp using the optional Magnuson TSV1900 supercharger system, which roars through a Corsa exhaust system. To obtain one, select Chevrolet dealerships that sell Southern Comfort pickups will offer them soon. As far as pricing goes, the Reaper is expected to sell from a starting price of the mid $50,000 range, with a fully loaded model coming in the mid $60,000’s.
