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.

Grainy Colorado: Chevy Sculpts New Mid-size Pickup Out of Sand

Sep 2 2014 4:53pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

First things first. The best thing to happen in San Diego during the Labor Day weekend was the Drive Like Jehu reunion show in Balboa Park, which found the angular rock geniuses accompanied by the gigantic, century-old Spreckels Organ. Everything else of note was simply vying for second place, including the annual U.S. Sand Sculpting Championships. Since Chevrolet apparently couldn’t get (or more likely didn’t try to get) Jehu frontman and noted artis ...
