Specialty Vehicle Engineering has made available its all-new 2018 YENKO/SC Silverado. The truck is powered by a custom-built 800 horsepower 416 C.I.D. 6.8-liter, supercharged LT-1-based engine.
Only 25 of these limited edition YENKO/SC trucks will be built in any factory available color, and all will be based off the 2018 standard cab, short box Z71 Silverado model, to take advantage of the lighter weight of this particular truck model.
The YENKO/SC truck comes equipped with Brembo’s larger front brakes, that include six piston calipers and 16.1-inch Duralife vented rotors, and a lowering package with 2-inch front lowering springs and a 5-inch rear lowering hardware package.
To further enhance the handling of this vehicle, each YENKO/SC truck includes Rancho shocks, skid plates, Hill Descent Control, automatic locking rear differential, 3.42 rear axle ratio, and a new larger diameter (1-1/2 inch) custom front sway bar. The GVWR of this truck is still 7,200 pounds.
The exterior and interior graphics, the YENKO badging, and the 20-inch Torque Thrust wheels are reminiscent of the original YENKO/SC models, according to the company. Each of these 25 vehicles will include a numbered power badge, two numbered key fobs, and a Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin.
