For as long as there have been trucks, they've been used for hauling more than just cargo. The 2018 Silverado Performance Concept explores the performance capability of Chevy's light-duty pickup with a concept supercharger system that figuratively and literally blows more life into its 5.3L V-8 engine. It's based on the supercharger of the LT4 engine offered in the Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1.
The Silverado Performance Concept also features Chevrolet Performance and Chevrolet Accessories parts that complement the supercharged engine, including a performance exhaust system and a performance brake kit. Custom exterior enhancements round out the Silverado concept's high-performance aesthetic.
