Report: Callaway working on high-performance Silverado

The power-driven minds at Callaway are looking to sink their teeth into the performance pickup truck market. According to, the company has already laid its hands on a new Chevrolet Silverado 1500, complete with a 6.2-liter V8 cranking out 403 horsepower and 417 lb-ft of torque, and has begun exploring potential performance enhancements. We're guessing that means there will be a crap ton more power coming from that mill by the time all is said and done, but there's indication that the final product will be more than a truck with a blower.

Callaway has a reputation for turning mild-mannered Chevrolet vehicles into all-out supercars, complete with a host of suspension upgrades. Whether the company decides to put a Silverado on the ground in the same vein as the old Ford F-150 SVT Lightening or rework the springs for off-road domination in aims of toppling the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor remains to be seen. We're personally hoping for the latter, but the truth is anything with the Callaway name on it tends to point our imaginations in the fun direction.
