Last week we told you about the 1000-horse Yenko Camaro. Truck lovers will be very excited to hear this news. Specialty Vehicle Engineering is also offering all-new 2018 YENKO/SC Supercharged Silverado, powered by a custom built 800-horsepower 416 C.I.D. (6.8L) supercharged LT-1-based engine.
2018 YENKO/SC Silverado
Only 25 of these Limited Edition YENKO/SC trucks will be built in any factory available color, and all will be based off the 2018 Standard Cab, Short Box Z71 Silverado model, to take advantage of the lighter weight of this particular truck model.
The YENKO/SC truck comes equipped with Brembo’s larger front brakes, that include 6 piston calipers and 16.1″ Duralife vented rotors, and a lowering package that includes 2″ front lowering springs, and 5″ rear lowering hardware package, to properly balance the awesome power of the 800-horse supercharged engine.
To further enhance the handling of this vehicle, each YENKO/SC truck includes Rancho shocks, skid plates, Hill Descent Control, automatic locking rear differential, 3.42 rear axle ratio, and a new larger diameter (1-1/2″) custom front sway bar. The GVWR of this truck is still 7200 lbs.
The exterior and interior graphics, the YENKO badging, and the 20″ Torque Thrust wheels are all reminiscent of the original YENKO/SC models back-in-the-day. Each of these 25 vehicles will include a numbered power badge, two numbered key fobs, a Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin, and a 3-year year/36,000 mile limited warranty on engine and supercharger assembly and non-powertrain components.
The base price for this supercharged ride? $46,995 and it requires a $10,000 deposit. Options like leather seat trim, side stripe, and hood graphics will cost you extra. You must order it from an authorized GM dealer. Check out the brochure here.
