When you're looking at a full custom machine, you want professionals to do the work. So when this 2015 Chevrolet Colorado was upgraded to a 5.3-liter V8 and a turbocharger added on top, you'll love to know it was part of a professional showcase. In fact, not only the motor, but also the suspension and interior is upgraded on this low mileage build. So you know this is a rare opportunity at something quite special.
Current Performance Wiring is the place to go when you want to do a motor swap on the kind of late model vehicles that need the computer to still function correctly. So you know when they build one for themselves, they're going to get it right. But before we get into all the details on the motor, take a moment to appreciate how this one announces its something special with its first impression. The carbon fiber hood insert look like it was borrowed from a high-performance Camaro; the all-steel custom rear roll pan looks great flush to the body; the folding bed cover is both useful and helps with aerodynamics; and the lowered stance give it the right aggression. Plus, those 20-inch Boze alloys do a great job of filling the wheel wells while matching the slick Cyber Gray Metallic paint on this low mileage truck. The overall look is not too boisterous, but it will also never be mistaken for any factory machine.
Inside are more tasteful updated pieces. The first part you'll notice is the light gray leather interior is now joined by custom suede inserts on the seats, door panels, dash, and center console. It instantly gives this truck an upper-class feeling. More of this premium feeling comes from the long list of features on this loaded upper-market LT truck. It includes power front seat, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, dual airbag, ABS, cruise control, heated seats, and automatic climate control. Plus, the modern infotainment system not only runs the AM/FM/XM stereo, but also great features like the Bluetooth and backup camera. Of course, when you spot the auxiliary turbo gauge you're remained that this leather-lined truck is much more than just a coddler.
This is the current generation Colorado, and Chevy doesn't offer V8 power for the truck. But just like a muscle car, a large engine in a smaller body is an irresistible idea. So a low mileage (under 500 miles) Gen V 5.3-liter V8 was sourced. This fuel-injected powerhouse works well on the big Chevys, and so it makes even more fun in the Colorado. But Current Performance Wiring did stop there. They also added on a Garrett 67mm ball bearing turbo, with Tial wastegates and blow off valve. The transmission was upgraded to reinforced 6L80E six-speed automatic with Precision Industries Vigilante triple disc torque converter. This kind of stout construction is needed because the motor is rated at just shy of 500 horsepower at the rear wheels. And because this truck is now a performer, the suspension was upgraded, too. This includes Eibach springs up front, and in the rear, a Hotchkis sway bar and Caltrac traction bars. Plus, you have QA1 double adjustable shocks and drilled & slotted disc brakes behind every wheel.
This would be a large project for anyone, but because professionals built it, it feels like the factory delivered fully-function premium truck. The sale even comes with the original window sticker, service manuals, and owner's manual. Don't miss out on one of the most awesome modern custom trucks around, call today!
