As impressive as the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is, the truck still leaves a bit to be desired in the powertrain department. General Motors‘ 3.6L LGZ V6 engine provides enough grunt to move the truck along pretty well and is more than powerful enough for most buyers, but there are always those select few customers that want a more robust engine option.
For those people, there’s Callaway Competition. The well-known GM tuning company has just released its new SC410 package for the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, which essentially gives the mid-size V6 truck the power of a V8.
Included in the SC410 package is a TVS1740 supercharger system, along with a Callaway Dual Pass intercooler system, Callaway high-flow intake and Callaway sport exhaust. These upgrades boost the output of the Colorado Z71’s 3.L V6 from 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque to a healthy 410 horsepower and 400 pound-feet.
Some small cosmetic upgrades are also included in the base price, such as Callaway exterior and interior badges, all-weather floor mats, Callaway-branded key fobs, an underhood engine build plaque and a certificate of authenticity.
The best part of this package, in our opinion, is that it can be ordered directly from Chevrolet dealers and does not void the factory GM warranty. The package also comes with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty on all Callaway-installed parts, while a transferable five-year, 50,000-mile warranty is available for extra. The truck can also be serviced at any Chevrolet dealership, so you don’t have to take it to Callaway or deal with the tuning company itself should something go wrong.
“Equipped with Callaway’s intercooled, TVS1740-based supercharger, high-flow intake and exhaust systems, and precise electronic powertrain management calibration, Callaway Colorados deliver significant increases in horsepower and torque,” the company says of its new SC410 package. “That means improved acceleration, towing and hauling.”
