LPE Will Showcase Plenty Of Chevrolet Muscle In The Coming Days

Lingenfelter Air Filter SEMA 2019

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been making waves lately with the announcement of their 450 horsepower supercharged V6 package that is compatible with everything from the Cadillac ATS to the Chevrolet Colorado. However, the 2019 SEMA Show is in just a few days, and the tuning company plans on bringing the house with pro touring builds, powerhouse pickup trucks, and even herculean engines. A photo gallery is provided at the bottom of the story.

The teaser photos released so far depict a rather unassuming C2 Corvette build with the hood up. But the angle is such that nobody can see what’s powering the vintage Corvette from the photo. It could be some sort of special crate V8 engine, which was also teased by Lingenfelter. Following that we see a high-flow air intake teased through the hood slats of a C7 Corvette, which wears a special star-studded livery. There won’t be any C8 Corvettes on the SEMA Show floor on display from any aftermarket company.

Colorado ZR2

Additionally, Lingenfelter plans on bring two of its Chevrolet Colorado ZR2-L builds for the 2019 SEMA Show. One will be on display at the performance company’s booth, while the other can be found at the Edelbrock booth, which is the company that supplies the supercharger for the blown V6 program.

Another teaser depicts some kind of General Grabber M/T tire that surrounds a blacked-out beadlock wheel. The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2-L pickup trucks from Lingenfelter do not feature either of these things – we’ve seen them up close to know for sure. This could only mean that this wheel and tire combination belongs to a forthcoming Lingenfelter Performance T1 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. This truck will likely feature several off-road enhancing components, such as a new suspension system and lift kit to complement the set of rugged wheels and tires. Power enhancements will likely be strictly limited to bolt-on parts, unfortunately, as General Motors has made it so that it’s virtually impossible to access the engine’s control module to further enhance performance.

Be sure to watch this space in the coming days for all of the 2019 SEMA Show news and the latest Lingenfelter Performance Engineering news.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R.
