You probably know Callaway Cars as the Corvette specialists who focus on improving Chevy’s sports car through engine modifications and wagon-style hatch replacements. But Corvettes aren’t the only GM vehicles Callaway designs upgrades for. It also offers a package for the Silverado pickup—one that makes it quicker in a straight line than Ram’s Hellcat-powered 1500 TRX.
Dubbed the Callaway Silverado SC602, this super truck uses a Silverado 1500 with the 6.2-liter V-8 and 10-speed automatic as a base. Callaway adds a supercharger, its own intake system, a low-restriction exhaust, and an ECU tune to extract a total of 602 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque. The SC602 also gets a host of cosmetic upgrades, including alloy wheels, a carbon grille, a host of Alcantara-covered trim pieces, and a plaque mounted in the cabin.
While the SC602 might not make as much power as the 702-horsepower Ram, its 1260-pound weight advantage (according to Callaway) is enough to eek out a better quarter-mile time versus the TRX in a straight-up drag race. And while the Ram is able to beat out the SC602’s 0-60 time, it’s the Callaway that reaches 100 mph first. For the full story, check out this article from Road & Track.
