Specialty Vehicle Engineering has recently introduced the supercharged 2023 Yenko/SC Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, which could easily qualify as some of the quickest full-size SUVs in the world. First thing’s first, there will be two power options. The first is a supercharged 5.3L V8, which will have 700 horsepower, but with the optional supercharged 6.2L V8, 800 horsepower will be on tap. The vehicles will be available in 2023 2WD or 4WD LS, LT, RST, Z71, Premier, and High Country models.
2023 Yenko Tahoe and Suburban: Details
The powerhouse engine and supercharger assembly on the 2023 Yenko Tahoe and Suburban represent the latest in state-of-the-art performance engine technology. Featuring a blueprinted aluminum block, race-quality computer balanced rotating assembly, including forged 1538 MV twisted steel crankshaft and forged aluminum pistons, upgraded cylinder heads, and Specialty Vehicle Engineering’s high output supercharger assembly. If that isn’t enough, a custom stainless steel exhaust system is also included.
Production of the supercharged Yenko Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban will be extremely limited. Only 50 of each 2023 700 hp and 800 hp Supercharged SUVs to be built, they’ll likely fly off the GM dealer lots. The vehicles don’t just offer impressive performance but feature unique appearances, including wheels that make a dramatic statement, as well as badges on the hood insert and liftgate to make competitors think twice before challenging you.
The interior features a Yenko Crest power badge with a vehicle build number (1-50). Additionally, Yenko Crest Supercharged embroidered front floormats, embroidered stock front seat headrests, and Yenko doorsill plates are included. But wait! Each vehicle features a 3-year/36,000-mile engine and supercharger assembly limited warranty and a 3-year/36,000-mile non-powertrain component limited warranty.
