It seems customers can't get enough of customized trucks, as Shelby American has seen with the strong demand for its performance-enhanced Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, best known for its hot-rodded Camaros, Firebirds, and Corvettes, has gotten into the truck-performance scene in a major way with its Signature Edition 2013 Silverado Models.
Based on 1500-series 2013 Silverado trucks with either the 5.3- or 6.2-liter Vortec engines, Lingenfelter offers custom-tuned packages featuring either a Magnuson TVS 1900 or Edelbrock E-Force 2300 supercharger system. Either of these packages increases the horsepower by more than 100, and torque by 90 lb-ft or more. The price for the Magnuson package starts at $9995, and the E-Force system going for $10,995. Both systems feature a supplemental 3-year/36,000-mile powertrain warranty for the engine and supercharger.
In addition to the engine and performance upgrades, Lingenfelter is offering the performance upgrades in lifted and lowered configurations for both street truck and off-road enthusiasts. Additional accessories available are tonneau covers, power steps, and custom wheels and graphics.
Considering Lingenfelter's long history with GM performance, it's likely just a question of time before performance packages are offered for the new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado
and GMC Sierra 1500 models.
