SVE Turns Chevy Colorado Into 750 HP Ram TRX Fighter
The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 is a rugged pickup straight from the factory, but the Special Vehicle Engineering (SVE) is now offering a much more powerful version of the trail-capable truck. The company’s Xtreme Off Road model boasts 750 horsepower (559 kilowatts) and 600 pound-feet (814 Newton-meters) of torque from a supercharged 5.3-liter V8 with upgraded internals.
From Chevy, the Colorado ZR2 is available with a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 hp (230 kW) or a 2.8-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel making 181 hp (135 kW). This means that SVE’s Xtreme Off Road has about 2.4 times more power than the most-potent stock engine.
In addition to the big engine upgrade, SVE installs a new, heavy-duty eight-speed automatic gearbox. There is also a beefier transfer case. The driveshafts are stronger, too.
SVE also fits a custom stainless steel cat-back exhaust with dual tips with either a polished or satin black finish. The upgraded front brakes have 13.6-inch slotted rotors with red, six-piston calipers featuring the Xtreme emblem on them. The rear brakes remain stock.
