  • Callaway’s Chevrolet Suburban SC560 supercharged 6.2-litre V8 boasts 560 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque
  • All modifications still protected by GM original factory warranty
  • Can be ordered directly from the dealer

If you don’t think the 2020 Chevrolet Suburban is fast enough, Callaway has a solution for you. Unveiled yesterday through Callaway Cars’ YouTube channel, the new Chevrolet Suburban SC560 boasts 33 percent more power than the stock Suburban’s most powerful 6.2-litre V8.

Now, Callaway has been offering the Tahoe SC560 for a couple of years now. They also offer performance kits for the GMC Yukon and Cadillac Escalade. The latest SC560 upgrade is for the 2020 Suburban and was announced yesterday by Callaway Cars.

Callaway essentially sticks a supercharger on the V8 along with a new air intake, new intercooler and a new exhaust system and the end result is 560 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque compared to the original 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque from the original engine.

The kit can be ordered directly from participating GM dealerships, although pricing hasn’t been revealed. There’s even a kit for the base 5.3-liter V8 which makes 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque out of the gate. Once Callaway is done tinkering with it, however, it develops 480 horsepower and 477 pound-feet of torque.

No official acceleration numbers were revealed for the Suburban, but a 2017 Tahoe SC560 can be seen completing the quarter-mile in 13,62 seconds at 103 mph. Not blistering speed by any means, but certainly impressive for a three-row mastodon.

The 2020 Chevrolet Suburban will be the last model-year for the current generation. It is set to be replaced by a brand-new model in 2021. The new-generation Suburban/Tahoe will get a more refined independent suspension setup, more interior space, and more technology. The engine lineup doesn’t really change, however, which means a Callaway SC560 version of the new Tahoe could already be in the works.
