• The Chevy Silverado Signature Edition Puts the Camaro to Shame

Aftermarket company Callaway has plonked in a supercharger amongst other things to make this a deadly straight-line racer

Performance trucks have been there for a very long time, but they are finally becoming mainstream now. While automakers are rolling out high-performance pickup trucks, aftermarket companies have also upped the ante to make them better than factory products. The new Callaway Silverado Signature Edition is the latest example. This big, burly truck with a V-8 engine has enough power and mechanical tech to beat even the Chevy Camaro in a straight-line race. Oh, what a sight that must be!

How Does It Beat The Camaro?

Getting straight to the point, the Callaway-channeled Silverado takes just 4.3 seconds to 60 mph from a standstill, which is 0.7 seconds faster than a stock V-6 Camaro.

The quarter-mile distance is covered in 12.5 seconds at 113 mph. But, it’s worth mentioning that it not as quick as the Camaro V-8 that takes just 3.9 seconds to 60 mph. The stock V-8 Silverado, in comparison, takes 5.4 seconds to sprint to 60 mph from a standstill and 13.9 seconds to a quarter-mile at 101 mph.

Callaway has opted for the Silverado with the 6.2-liter, naturally-aspirated V-8 engine under the hood to create a Camaro-assaulting behemoth. The tuner has plonked in a GenThree TVS Supercharger with an intercooler system that increases the output from 420 horses and 460 pound-feet of twist to 602 ponies and 560 pound-feet of twist. Furthermore, the truck also benefits from a high-flow intake system, a quad-tip, stainless-steel, dual-outlet exhaust system, and Callaway’s engine control components and calibration.

On the outside, the Callaway build comes with a carbon grille up front. You can have it with either nine-spoke Anthracite wheels or a ten-spoke set finished in satin black. They come wrapped in either 20- or 22-inch tires. Other interesting stuff includes carbon mid-engine covers, Callaway badging, and serialized build number. However, there’s no word if this is a limited-production package.

Inside the cabin, the Callaway Silverado features billet aluminum pedals. There are aluminum door sill inserts, too. The tuner also offers a serialized authentication plaque and an Alcantara horn cover with debossed logos in here, and has thrown in key chains and a documentation package, too. The authentication plaque is present under the hood as well with the VIN.

You can have the Signature Edition Silverados on the Trail Boss, RST, LTZ, and High Country trims, which come with this V-8 engine and a four-wheel-drive layout. It comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty as standard, but you can opt for a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty as optional. In case you’re worried about compliance, Callaway says that the Signature Edition Silverado is legal in all 50 states.
