“If Corvette built a pickup.” - TopSpeed Silverado Callaway review.
Here's how TopSpeed explained the origins of the Chevrolet Silverado Callaway SportTruck: “The Silverado (brand) has some real powerful trucks in the form of the heavy duty ones, but there is no truck that is 'fast'; not even in the light pickup category. Ram and Ford have (had) that covered with the Rebel TRX and the F-150 Raptor, but Chevy lags behind here…. So, it was imperative for an aftermarket manufacturer to take over the reins and offer customers what they are looking for, and, Callaway has taken that position.”
Offered here is a standout example of the top-of-the-performance-curve, “fast speed” truck TopSpeed was writing about, the Chevrolet Silverado Z71 Callaway SportTruck, in white-over black leather. In addition to the truck's specific features, remarkably low mileage of under 7,900 miles more than qualifies it for the “standout” accolade.
The exterior of the pickup offers ample cues that this is no ordinary Silverado. Even a quick glance tells the tale. There's the lowered stance; the twin exhaust pipes exiting below and behind the right-rear fender; the massive, exclusive 22-inch black-chromewheels; the performance tires; the “Callaway” branding on the front doors and tailgate in individual letters mimicking the factory “Silverado” lettering; the Chevrolet bowtie emblem rendered in black in the center of the grille and on the tailgate. Finally, there is the fore and aft “SC 560” badging that telegraphs: This is the fast one. Get close enough to hear the engine note even at idle, and no doubt remains: This is engine music no regular Silverado puts out. (In this regard, be sure to view the short walk-around-and-startup video linked at the GarageKeptMotors site.)
Open the hood, and there behind the Callaway VIN-identified signature data plate, the sinister-looking supercharged, 560-horsepower V8 engine is the center of attention in a perfectly clean and tidy engine bay. Callaway-branded components, including the red “560” logos on the valve covers, bear out the no-ordinary-Silverado theme. Underneath, the chassis is equally tidy, undamaged, and complete. Factory-applied stickers and manufacturing markings remain in place.
Open a door and step over the ZR-71-branded sill emblem into an interior where the special-vehicle impression is only further reinforced. The prominent, yet tasteful, Calloway badge centered on the dash is one reminder. Leather upholstery with gray deviated stitching throughout—including on the dash—is another. The full complement of top-end Chevrolet options—from sunroof, to GM's highly regarded premium touchscreen audio with integrated navigation and internet capability, to drop-down DVD screens for the second-row passengers, to embroidered carpet mats—completes the impression. There is no question why this SportTruck sold for over $90,000 just two years ago. The Callaway performance package alone priced out at $18,000.
The truck comes with a full set of owner's literature, including a Callaway certificate of authenticity, Callaway-embossed leather folder, and two original smart keys with Callaway-branded key fobs.
The remarkable condition of this very special, like-new, low-mileage Silverado ZR71 Callaway SportTruck is faithfully presented in the more than 150 high-definition photographs, together with a short walk-around-and-startup video mentioned earlier, available at the GarageKeptMotors site. That said, there is no substitute for an in-person, up-close inspection. We encourage such inspections by interested parties at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. We ask only that an appointment be made by phone or email in advance. Our showroom is not open to the public.
Motorweek claimed there was only one thing these Callaway SportTrucks were missing, calling them: “…a well-built, and yes very tasty high performance truck that lacks only one thing: A country song written about it.” But behind the wheel of this white missile, you can play whatever music suits your taste.
