There’s the RAM 1500 Rebel TRX.
There’s the Ford Raptor.
Shelby will build you a 750-horsepower truck if you want.
And now, Lingenfelter drops a 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine in a Colorado.
So far, early 2020 has been all about the COVID-19 virus and high-powered pickup trucks. More precisely, Shelby introduced their Ford F-150 Super Snake Sport late last year and just earlier this week, what looks like a Hellcat-powered RAM 1500 Rebel TRX was spied driving about. This time, it’s Lingenfelter’s turn to take a pickup to the next level in the form of a supercharged V8 in a midsize Chevrolet Colorado.
This is no ordinary Chevrolet Colorado. Physically, the truck is flared out to next Wednesday, rides on beautiful Method wheels with mu tires and sports a raised ride height.
The engine is none other than a 6.2-liter supercharged LT4 V8 engine that normally serves the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Dropped into the Colorado, set up with Lingenfelter’s own pulley kit, this bad boy produces 720-horsepower. The package includes a 9.2 inch 15% supercharger drive damper pulley, custom engine control module reprogramming, green air filter and more.
It’s 8-speed automatic transmission has received Lingenfelter’s own transmission calibration. On the dyno test, the truck put 534-horsepower to the wheels, which is almost disturbing in a truck like this.
There’s no pricing available for this conversion but the pulley kit goes for $4,350.
