Lingenfelter and Southern Comfort Automotive have teamed up to build the Chevrolet Silverado-based Reaper, which has been unveiled at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show.
According to Southern Comfort Automotive’s president, Matt McSweeney, the Reaper was designed “to fill a void in the market for Chevy enthusiasts seeking a stand-out, supercharged off-road vehicle with head-turning curb appeal.” Standard features on the Silverado-based Reaper include a three-inch lift with long travel off-road suspension, Fox Racing performance remote reservoir shocks, 20-inch Reaper wheels mounted on General Grabber light truck tires and a Lingenfelter performance exhaust system.
Giving it a more aggressive style is a custom hood and grille assembly, high-clearance bumper, wide-body fender flares and wheel-to-wheel rock guard with removable side steps. Custom lighting on the Reaper include integrated LED driving lights, side front fender marker lights and an integrated off-road floor light system.
The Reaper will be available in red, white, gray or black at select Chevrolet dealers and comes with a supercharged powerplant. Of course those looking for more performance can opt for upgrades which include: a Magnusson TSV1900 supercharger (5.3L or 6.2L V8), 17-inch beadlock wheels mounted on General Grabber Red Letter tires, Reaper graphics and a frozen matte paint finish.
“Off-road enthusiasts can count on Lingenfelter to deliver the rugged, super-charged, high-end pickup package they crave, and this new Reaper is that and more,” said Mike Copeland, Vice President and General Manager, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “With Southern Comfort Automotive’s restyling and graphics expertise, the performance-tuned Reaper is expected to dominate in the custom-designed luxury pickup class.”
