Performance truck enthusiasts have a shot at head-turning street style and supercharged speed with the 2022 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado, rocking 850 horsepower and a lowered stance ready to hit the pavement.
Offered by Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE), the 2022 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado is equipped with a unique styling treatment that includes a set of side stripes running down the flanks of the vehicle. The new stripes are complemented by unique wheels, sized at 22 inches in diameter and 10 inches in width, with a unique six-spoke design. The wheels also reduce unsprung weight for improved handling and acceleration, and come wrapped in Nitto NT420V 305/45R22 tires.
Further exterior upgrades include new badging declaring the truck’s dramatic power level increase, while the vehicle stance is lowered 2 inches in front and 5 inches in the rear. In back is a set of quad exhaust tips.
While the 2022 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado looks great, it’s the engine spec that really makes this thing shine. Under the hood is a supercharged V8 engine producing 850 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque. The 6.2L powerplant is topped by SVC’s in-house-developed supercharger system, and features a blueprinted LT1 aluminum block, “race-quality computer-balanced” rotating assembly with a forged 1538MV twisted steel crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons, CNC-ported LT1 cylinder heads, custom stainless steel headers, and high-flow cats. The V8 connects to a heavy-duty performance eight-speed automatic transmission with an upgraded torque converter.
SVE offers a few customization options as well, including a leather seat trim package with either black or grey surrounds, leather inserts in seven different colors, and houndstooth cloth.
The 2022 Yenko/SC upgrade is available on Chevy Silverado Limited Crew Cab and Double Cab models with either the short bed or standard bed, including LT, RST, LTZ, and High Country trim levels. The performance truck is only available through GM dealers, and comes backed by a 3-year / 36,000-mile limited warranty. Only 50 examples are slated to be built.
