2021 Yenko Silverado could be “world’s fastest production truck”

Stop and give thanks that you live at a time of a street legal 800-hp pickup.

More specifically, thank GM and Specialty Vehicle Engineering for making that happen with the 2021 800-horsepower Limited Edition Yenko/Sc Silverado pickup.

“This Yenko version could easily qualify as the quickest 2021 limited production pickup truck in the world,” SVE states.

Available in two- and four-wheel-drive, crew and double cab, the supercharged 378 cubic inch powerplant features a blueprinted LT-1 aluminum block at its core that delivers up to 720 lb.-ft. torque.

Other go-fast parts include a forged 1538mv twisted steel crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons, CNC-ported LT-1 heads, SVE’s high-output OEM-style centrifugal supercharger assembly and custom stainless-steel headers with high-flow cats.

The truck comes with SVE’s 3-year/36,000-mile engine and supercharger assembly limited warranty. The included heavy-duty automatic transmission with performance upgrade also gets a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.

Only 50 2021 Yenko Silverado pickup trucks will be built.

For over 25 Years, Specialty Vehicle Engineering (formerly SLP) has been a second stage vehicle manufacturer and tier one supplier to GM and its dealers. With over 65,000 cars, trucks and SUV specialty vehicles built, SVE says it ranks as “the no. 1 GM specialty vehicle manufacturer in the USA.”
