New Jersey-based tuning company Speciality Vehicle Engineering has announced a new tuning program for the 2021 Chevy Silverado that will transform the truck into a supercharged off-road performance pickup that’s ready to go toe-to-toe with the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX.
SVE’s Yenko-branded Chevy Silverado Off-Road California Edition features the same supercharged 6.2L L87 V8 engine as the brand’s previously announced, street-focused Yenko Chevy Silverado California Edition. The blueprinted motor features a 3.0L twin-screw supercharger, along with a large air-to-water intrcooler, dual-pass heat exchanger and high-flow intake manifold. The result is a performance truck that makes over 710 horsepower, yet is still 50-state emissions compliant.
What sets the Yenko Chevy Silverado Off-Road apart from the street-focused California Edition is the suspension. This truck comes standard with a four-inch lift kit from BDS, which is complete with Fox Racing shocks, a heavy duty rear sway bar assembly, heavy -duty traction bars and more. Custom fender flares make room for wide 12-spoke alloy wheels, which are shod in knobby Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. Other upgrades include retractable side steps, Brembo brakes, an optional rear sport bar with a top-mounted LED light bar, a custom hood insert with ‘710HP’ badges and ‘Yenko Off-Road’ body side decals.
SVE says the Yenko Chevy Silverado Off-Road California Edition can be built around all 2021-model year Chevy Silverado trucks with the 6.2L L87 V8 engine. This includes both Crew Cab and Double Cab Silverado models in the Trail Boss, LT Trail Boss, RST, LTZ, And High Country trim levels with either short bed or standard bed. SVE trucks are also available to order directly from Chevy dealerships and come with a 3 year/36,000 mile (60,000 kilometer) powertrain limited warranty and 3 year/36,000 mile (60,000 kilometer) non-powertrain component limited warranty.
