New Jersey-based tuning company Specialty Vehicle Engineering has announced its new 2022 model-year Chevy Silverado Off-Road, which improves upon the 2021 model-year version of the performance pickup with a more powerful supercharged Small Block.
Power in this over-the-top tuner truck comes from a built 378 cubic-inch (6.2L) V8 engine based on the GM Small Block LT1, which has 50 more horsepower than last year for an impressive factory-rated output of 850 horsepower and 800 pound-feet of torque. Key parts in this motor include a blueprinted LT1 block, a computer-balanced rotating assembly, a forged crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons, CNC-ported LT1 cylinder heads and a twin-screw supercharger. This engine feeds power to all four wheels via a heavy-duty, upgraded GM eight-speed automatic transmission.
Apart from the newly upgraded engine, the 2022 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado Off Road is otherwise identical to the 2021 model. The truck rides on a set of 20-inch 12-spoke, one-piece aluminum wheels, which are shod in Nitto Ridge Grappler LT295/60R20 off-road tires. SVE’s BDS suspension lift kit is also present, which adds an additional four inches of ride height. The lift kit is joined by upgraded Fox shocks at all four corners, as well as a heavy-duty rear sway bar.
Passersby will be able to easily identify a Yenko/SC Silverado Off-Road thanks to its unique composite hood insert, Yenko-branded front grille insert, Yenko grille and fender badges and Yenko Off-Road quarter-panel graphics. Moving inside, the truck also gets a numbered Yenko build plaque, Yenko-embroidered floor mats, sYc embroidered seat headrests and Yenko door sill plates. Customers can also shell out some extra cash for an optional leather interior trim package, which is available in seven accent colors or with black/white houndstooth seat inserts.
All 2022 Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado Off-Road trucks will come with a three-year/36,000-mile (whichever comes first) warranty for the engine and supercharger assembly, along with individual warranties for the heavy-duty upgraded eight-speed transmission and non-powertrain components. The New Jersey-based tuner will build just 50 of these limited edition trucks. While these trucks will be available to order from official Chevy dealerships, they are not emissions compliant in California and thus will not be available in America’s most populous state. The Golden State gets the 710-horsepower, Yenko/SC Chevy Silverado California Edition instead.
