There isn’t really a lot out there today in terms of hot street pickups. Sure you’ve got Ford’s Baja inspired SVT Raptor, but just about everything else needs to be built out of a parts catalog.

Not that it’s all bad though. For Chevy fans who want a bit more oomph than the stock Silverado provides, Reeves Callaway and his team now offer a supercharger package on the 5.3 and 6.2-liter Vortec V-8s. By adding a positive displacement Roots type supercharger, liquid-to-air intercooler, bigger flow intake and upgraded fuel system, Callaway says the package will result in 450 honest horsepower from the 5.3 and 540 ponies from its bigger brother.

In addition to the engine upgrades, Callaway will also throw in special exterior badging and embroidery on the headrests and floor mats, plus a three-year, 36,000 mile limited warranty.

However, for those that want to spend more than the $15,995 on top of a standard Silverado, stand alone options include chrome detailing, a sport tuned suspension package, special alloy rims and performance tires and upgraded brakes. As of yet, the Old Lyme, Connecticut based company has still to announce pricing on those individual options.

Nevertheless, if you want the fastest bowtie pickup on the block, or just plain and simply, tired of those smug 1999-04 F-150 Lightning owners, the Callaway Silverado might just be right up your alley.
