Callaway Unveils Supercharged 2014 Chevrolet Silverado

Aug 19 2013, 1:00pm CDT | by

Over $17,000 for an additional 100 hp

I've honestly never really seen the appeal in souped-up trucks. It doesn't really matter how much power they have under the hood, the typical truck is never going to handle well enough to put much of that power to the ground. Callaway is probably better known for souping up Corvettes that it is for souping up trucks.

However, the company has announced supercharger packages for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500. Callaway says that the new engines and their direct injection system acquired a new fuel management strategy. The company is withholding power output figures at this time.

The company was targeting an output of 450 hp for the 5.3 L system and 540 hp for the 6.2 L system. The price, as you might expect, is substantial with the supercharger package costing $17,395. You could buy another truck for that amount.

Hyundai considering smaller, sub-Tucson crossover

Jul 30 2014 9:09am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Hyundai is getting serious about introducing a new compact crossover expected to slot below the Tucson. Billed as an alternative to the Buick Encore, Chevrolet Trax and Nissan Juke, Hyundai Motor America CEO Dave Zuchowski told Edmunds the new crossover “would be a vehicle really designed for Gen Y, for new first-time younger buyers” but stopped short of calling it a mini-Tucson. The project hasn’t been confirmed just yet, but if all goes to plan, it will hit dealers sometime in 2017. Spe ...

Filed under: Classics, Convertible, Coupe, Performance, Auctions, Government/Legal, Chevrolet, Ford The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

Researchers Create Pure Lithium Anode, 'Holy Grail' For Battery Cell

Jul 30 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: All Small Cars

Existing lithium-ion batteries rely on the movement of lithium ions between the anode and cathode--and back--as the battery charges and discharges. It's one of the best options we have for powering electric vehicles (and most consumer electronic devices, for that matter) but there's still room for impr ...

Jul 30 2014 7:38am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

General Motors’ Chevrolet Volt passed the U.S. insurance industry’s toughest frontal crash test, while Nissan’s battery-electric Leaf couldn’t make the grade. GM’s Volt, a plug-in electric hybrid that gets an energy-equivalent of 98 miles per gallon when running in battery mode, earned a mark of “acceptable,” the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) said today. The Leaf was rated “poor.” This is the first time the Arlington, Virginia-based safety group rate ...

What were they thinking? A look at the 10 worst ‘halo’ cars

Jul 29 2014 11:20am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

By definition, a “halo” vehicle is supposed to beam a positive light — or brand image — about its maker. Or, for more practical reasons, attract new vehicle buyers into showrooms filled with less exciting cars and trucks. Historically, the original 1990s Dodge Viper is considered the most successful halo car of all time. It enhanced Dodge’s role as Chrysler’s “performance” brand at a time when it was better known as the ...
