Callaway Cars has introduced its 2018 Callaway Yukon Denali SC560. This $120,000 special build transforms the stock 420-hp and 5,743-pound luxury truck into a faster, more nimble 560-hp supercharged beast, according to the company.
Under the hood drivers will find Callaway’s GenThree Supercharger paired with a TripleCooled Intercooler system originally developed for Callaway Corvettes. The ability to produce more horsepower and torque, while eliminating heat soak is what really makes this a unique upgrade. The supercharger package also adds Callaway-embroidered floor mats, a specially designed Callaway key fob, Callaway badging on both exterior and interior, and an underhood plaque with Callaway VIN.
In addition to more power, Callaway made upgrades to the braking system in the form of the Le Mans GT Brake Package. It features aluminum calipers with six-piston fronts and four-piston rears. Patented internal cooling vanes provide up to 80 percent more airflow than what can be found on the stock vehicle, according to the company.
Ride control and handling were a top priority for the Callaway SC560. Each truck receives springs that lower ride height by about two inches. Stiffer swaybars were chosen to help control body roll during aggressive cornering. Two wheel options are available: 20-inch graphite 9-spoke style and upscale 22-inch 10-spoke black chrome fitment.
