It used to be that if you wanted automotive muscle, you were looking at a sedan, while trucks remained as utilitarian vehicles that were meant for specific jobs. Over time, that philosophy has changed, and trucks have become more and more popular. Yet, still, the racetrack largely avoided anything with a bed in it. Yenko has its eye on introducing the world to a truck that can dominate on and off the track. Their new 2021 Yenko Supercharged Silverado Off-Road offers 800 horsepower and 720 lb-ft of torque, making it a truck that can speed down the fairway, or crawl through the trails.
The Silverado being offered for this special powerhouse edition is the 2021 model outfitted with a 378 C.I.D. engine—an engine that is at the cutting edge of performance. The 378 C.I.D. features an LT-1 aluminium block. The rotating assembly is computer balanced to meet race criteria, and it comes with a forged 1538MV twisted steel crankshaft, forged aluminium pistons, CNC-ported LT-1 cylinder heads, and forged steel rods.
Yenko also added in their high output OEM-style centrifugal supercharger to really crank up the performance as well as custom stainless steel headers with high-flow cats. The engine funnels its power into a heavy-duty automatic transmission that has also received the performance upgrade treatment.
Yenko only plans on building 50 of the 2021 Yenko Silverado Off Road trucks. You may never see one, but you’ll definitely recognize it if you do. The truck comes with a BDS 4.0-inch lift kit backed by Fox shock absorbers. The 20-inch wheels are shod in Nitto Ridge Grappler LT295/60R20 tires.
Yenko also included a vented hood and added Yenko graphics just to make sure. You’ll have to chat with an authorised Chevy dealer to get the specifics on pricing, but if you’re lucky enough to purchase one of these trucks, you’ll be set to dominate regardless of wherever you find yourself.
