The magic starts under the hood, where SVE installs a new 5.3L V8 engine composed of a blueprinted L83 aluminum block and tons of high-end components. Highlights include a forged 1538MV twisted steel crankshaft, forged H-beam rods and forged aluminum pistons, CNC ported L83 high flow cylinder heads, and ARP high-strength head and main studs.
Making the boost is SVE’s in-house centrifugal supercharger system, fed by an upgraded fuel system. The charge air stays chilly via an air-to-water intercooler system, while spent gasses are evacuated via a custom stainless steel exhaust system. Put it all together, and the result is 750 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque.
The new SVE Chevy Colorado gets the appropriate clearance thanks to a four-inch lift that utilizes the Colorado ZR2’s Multimatic DSSV dampers, as well as new heavy-duty traction bars. Making the rig stop are branded six-piston front brake calipers finished in red, paired with either black or white lettering, plus 13.6-inch vented rotors.
The new Chevy Colorado looks the part with unique quarter-panel graphics and unique wheels, declaring the power levels with graphics on the hood and tailgate. There are goodies for the interior as well, such as an optional leather seat trim package, which is available in two colors and accented with red and white stitching on the black seats. The Xtreme V8 Supercharged logo is embroidered on the front headrests.
SVE will build its Xtreme Off Road pickup using new 2022 Chevy Colorado 4WD ZR2 models (crew cab / short box configuration) as the base vehicle. Just 50 examples are set for production.
Alternatively, if you prefer your supercharged pickup with some street style instead, SVE is also offering the new 750-horsepower 2022 GMC Syclone.
