OLD LYME, Connecticut — Callaway Cars, best known for its high-performance Corvette conversions, is deep into development of supercharged editions of the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, with the first deliveries expected to begin later this year.
Callaway said it expects to offer supercharged versions of General Motors' 5.3- and 6.2-liter V8s in the full-size Silverado and GMC pickups, which were completely redesigned for model year 2014 and are just beginning to reach U.S. dealers.
The Callaway supercharged 5.3 V8 is expected to exceed 450 horsepower, while the supercharged 6.2 V8 should top 540 hp, the company said.
Callaway packages will be offered in every GM-built cab and bed combination of the 2014 Silverado and Sierra. The company also plans to offer wheel, tire, suspension, interior and body upgrade kits on the new trucks, as well as high-output intake and exhaust systems.
Pricing has not been announced.
