Callaway Unveils Supercharged 2014 Chevrolet Silverado

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.

24 Hours of LeMons Pacific Northworst: The Winners

Jul 22 2014 10:50pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

After returning to The Ridge Motorsports Park in rainy Washington for the fourth annual Pacific Northworst 24 Hours of LeMons, we inspected the 63 entrants and sent them onto the track on Saturday, then watched the hard-fought class battles reach their climax on Sunday. It was wet and blustery out and many cars left important bits of their running gear on the tarmac as the race wore on, but some teams persevered and took home pro ...

Car Review: 2015 Dodge Challenger

Jul 22 2014 9:09am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

BMW International Open - Previews
PORTLAND, ORE. — When the Dodge Challenger was reincarnated in 2008, it was fashioned after the classic 1970 model bearing its name. For 2015, Dodge has refreshed the range and used the 1971 edition as its inspiration. The changes are subtle — new front and rear fascias that feature the ’71’s split grille and tail lights, but nothing too dramatic. This is not to say the changes are not for the better. Everything takes an enormous step in the right direction. A ...
