Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept

  Chevrolet supercharges the Silverado with the Silverado Performance concept It's just a concept for now.The best part of the truck is under the hood. Here, the smallest 5.3-liter V8 is thoroughly heated up with an intercooled supercharger based on the unit used on the LT4 engine in the Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1. Chevrolet claims it adds over 100 horsepower, which means the 5.3's standard 355 horsepower would jump to at least 455. That would also mean it makes 35 more horsepower than the available 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8. That does present the question of why GM wouldn't have simply supercharged the 6.2-liter, but we applaud the company for considering the potential of more than just the top-spec powertrains.

The modern design of the new Silverado builds on decades of leading-edge design, dating back to the Advanced Design trucks of the late-’40s to mid-’50s and their successors, the Task Force of the late-’50s and the C/K series (1960-2000). The look is traditional (how can it not be, in a pickup?) with modern cues, such as the thin multi-light headlight array, and multi-level character lines along the side that add visual beauty while conveying a sense of ruggedness.

Capability and performance have also been enhanced, with a higher-grade alloy used in the bed floor, making the bed more functional, while reducing the overall vehicle weight (contributed to by other parts throughout the new Silverado.

Not much else is known about the truck at this time, with further details, specs and pricing to be announced at the launch next month.
