CALLAWAY TEASES SUPERCHARGED T1 CHEVROLET SILVERADO

The Trucks Are Notoriously Difficult To Tune

Callaway Cars has shared with us an imminent T1 Chevrolet Silverado performance package, featuring a supercharged V8 under the hood. Happy Sunday!

Beyond the supercharged V8, this Callaway T1 Silverado appears to feature a bespoke carbon fiber grille, door sills, exhaust system, and felted steering wheel.

There aren’t a lot of tuned T1 Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks out there, as they have been reportedly a bear to tune and get right. But there are some examples out there, such as the awesome Yenko Silverado, and even offerings from Hennessey, as well.

Callaway’s entry is significant because the company is known for its quality, and has long been a household name in GM tuning, highlighted by their extraordinary work with the Corvette over the years. Please recall the C7 AeroWagen, for example.

Expect more details to follow on this exciting new Callaway Chevrolet Silverado 1500 project in the coming days. Total horsepower and torque output, as well as pricing for the package, are still at large.

Along with the Chevrolet Silverado, Callaway offers power upgrades to the Chevrolet Colorado, Chevrolet Camaro, and is hard at work on the C8 Corvette. Last year, the tuning company teased a C8 Stingray with a center-exit exhaust, which helps the car stand out, even by aftermarket standards.

The achievement made by Callaway is commendable, indeed. However, a refreshed 2022 Chevrolet Silverado and 2022 GMC Sierra are around the corner. And along with significant interior improvements, the updated trucks will introduce fortifications to their engine control units. This is thanks to the implementation of GM’s Global B electrical architecture. There are benefits to this hardware, such as sharper display resolutions, processing speeds, and even OTA updates. The downside? This will encrypt the ECU of the engine, and leave tuners in the same situation they have found themselves with the C8 Corvette: locked out.
