Another special edition from General Motors Company is ready for the market. It’s the 2018 Chevrolet Yenko Silverado. Created was in the Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) company. Unfortunately, they will offer only 25 copies for this year, and currently they can be ordered from authorized dealers.
The front and the last part do not have significant differences. Yet, there is different hood, racing stripes and several Yenko graphics. Of course, built-in custom stainless steel dual exhaust system. In the cabin are cloth or leather seats, automatic climate control and probably an 8-inch touchscreen. In addition offering Houndstooth seating package with cloth and leather seats with white contrast stitching.
Based on a single-cab short-bed pickup truck with two doors, designed to accommodate three passengers. Placed at the 22-inch wheels with GM’s Performance brake package. Exterior dimensions: length 205.6 inch (5222 mm), width 80 inch (2032 mm), height 74.1 inch (1882 mm), while the wheelbase 119 inch (3023 mm). The weight, payload and towing capacity are not yet known. Also has a two-inch suspension drop for the front suspension and a five-inch drop for the rear leaf springs.
The 2018 Chevrolet SYC has all-aluminum 6.8-liter supercharged V-8 engine, based on GM’s 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 engine. Of course, with several upgrades it’s considerably stronger: direct fuel injectors; forged steel crankshaft and forged aluminum pistons; CNC-porting cylinder head; H-beam connecting rods. Although there is no official information, we expect production of 800 hp and about 750 lb-ft (1017 Nm) of torque. The four-wheel drive is combined with a 6-speed automatic transmission. We assume it will have a maximum speed of 150 mph (241 km/h), while for acceleration from 0 to 62 mph it takes about 5 seconds.
According to available information, the production of 2018 Chevrolet Yenko Silverado will cost almost $ 47,000. Taking into account the price of the standard model, we expect it will cost between $ 95,000 and $ 100,000. Of course, with the extra package it will be more expensive.
