We have no information on this other than the image you see here, but pictures say a lot, and this one says that ROUSH is about to spread some of its performance pickup love over to General Motors in the form of the ROUSH Silverado. A poster at the CamaroZ28.com forum snuck a cameraphone shot of an official sketch and published it on the website. As you can see when you enlarge the photo, there's a pretty concise legal disclaimer at the bottom, and if we had to guess, someone is definitely going to get fired for this rather significant security breach. Either that, or ROUSH has deftly embraced viral marketing. Here's hoping for a blown 6.2L under that domed hood.

UPDATE:
We have spoken to ROUSH, and they can only confirm that the Silverado depicted above is "a project that we are evaluating."

Thanks for the heads-up, Josh.

      Good looking for a Chebby but i like the new Dodge Dakota better and Dodge doesnt have to have SOMEBODY else do the Engine work! They have everything they need thank you! just check out the new NASCAR engines that are Dodge engineering by-products!

      Two-time loser. Roush failed when they tried to pick up the SVT slack with the Gen 3 Lightning (Nitemare = not even close to an L or H-D edition), and the Silverado can't compete with the big dogs to begin with. At the very least this will make for some excellent competition and Ford smackdowns at track events world-wide.

      I guess I can add it to the list with SRT10s as vehicles whose owners think are fast but are slower than my Lightning.

      But, totally worth it. Thats badass

      My lightning has been running 11.9s in street trim for the better part of 3 years. Its a real beast when the Mickeys T's go on it.

        I smell a hoax.
        Jack Roush is the ultimate Ford guy. How would it look for the the big Ford name in NASCAR to be building hot Chevys?
        Jack hates GM and Chev. Why would he do this?
        And the piece of Roush confidential info at the bottom of the picture is just too hokey.
        I for one don't buy it.

        Roush works on other GM products as well. Roush hates Toyota not chevy.

      Eliot, based on your comments it seems you have both a stock and non-stock vehicle currently. That is impressive. I was not aware that buying a Dodge came with the added benefit of allowing one to manipulate the English language in such a way.

      "a ram srt-10 is faster than lightnings, whether or not u have mods is a different story, but a supercharged ram srt-10 can take on almost any lightning"

      With equivalent drivers, a stock Gen. 2 Lightning will take a stock SRT-10 RAM at the dragstrip. A supercharged SRT-10 Ram is not stock. The best top speed recorded for a stock SRT is about 5-7 MPH higher than for a Lightning, but how often are you going to go 150 or more in either of them?

      "and why did ford stop making the lightning"

      Simply because that generation of F-150 platform was discontinued after 2004. The current generation weighs about 500 lbs. more (dumb move on Ford's part!), and Ford decided that it would be too expensive to make a Gen. 3 Lightning that could keep up with the Gen. 2.

      Ask and ye shall receive. ;)

      The Roush F-150 is blingy and gaudy but this looks like it might be clean and awesome.
      A better try on a clean slate.
