While trucks like the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500 offer high-performance variants with uber-powerful engines, the GMC Sierra offers no such supercharged powerhouse. To help address this discrepancy between Big Red’s full-size pickup truck and the competition, Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has introduced the supercharged 2024 Sport Edition GMC Sierra Off Road pickup truck.
Available in Crew Cab or Double Cab configurations with either the short bed or standard bed, the supercharged 2024 Sport Edition GMC Sierra Off Road truck is only available to be purchased through local GM dealerships, and is intended to stand above the Sierra AT4X in terms of all-terrain prowess.
There are four available power levels, including a 700-horsepower variant equipped with the 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine and an 800-horsepower edition equipped with the 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine. Both powerplants feature a blueprinted aluminum block, race-quality computer-balanced rotating assembly, forged twisted steel crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons, upgraded cylinder heads, and an SVE supercharger system. A custom stainless steel exhaust system is also included. There’s also a 650-horsepower configuration available with the 6.2L V8 and a 550-horsepower variant with the 5.3L V8. These two upgrades include a supercharger, a high-flow cooling system and a cat-back dual exhaust system.
Naturally, the supercharger assembly is one of the biggest features of the SVE pickup. In fact, the aftermarket tuning company has added a new boost-by-wire system that allows the user to have full variable boost control.
It’s worth noting that 91 and 93 octane tuning calibrations are available.
In terms of exterior styling, every pickup features an aggressive quarter-panel graphics package, unique wheels, and custom engine output badges to help make a dramatic statement. Meanwhile, the interior features the Sport Edition supercharged Off Road logo embroidered on the front headrests and embroidered floormats.
It’s worth noting that SVE will only produce 50 units in each of the four configurations, or 200 units in total of the 2024 Sport Edition GMC Sierra Off Road.
