Callaway Supercharges The GMC Yukon Denali To 560 HP

The GMC Yukon Denali offers a nice blend of luxury and performance but drivers looking for something more exciting might want to check out the new Callaway SC560.

Billed as a supercharged beast that can tear up any road, the Callaway Yukon Denali features a 6.2-liter V8 engine that has been equipped with a GenThree supercharger as well as a TripleCooled intercooler system which was originally developed for Callaway Corvettes. Thanks to these modifications, the output climb from 420 hp (313 kW) to 560 hp (417 kW).

Additional changes are limited but the model has also been equipped with embroidered floor mats, a specially designed key fob, and plenty of Callaway badging. Customers can also order a sport interior, a sport steering wheel, sport pedals, and 20- or 22-inch wheels.

Speaking of options, Callaway offers a Handling Package which adds stiffer sway bars and new springs which reduce the ride height by approximately two inches. Another option is the Le Mans GT Brake Package which includes aluminum calipers and 380mm slotted brake rotors.

The model pictured reportedly costs $120,000 but the Callaway SC560 Supercharged Package retails for $17,995. This suggests you could get a Callaway Yukon Denali for around $85,000 if you skip out on the other options.

According to CEO Reeves Callaway, “With a substantial boost in horsepower and a full range of custom features, the Callaway upgrades give GM SUVs additional punch, especially when it comes to towing and navigating rugged drive conditions.”

    If I were trying to come up with problems on the Yukon, power wouldn’t be one of them. Unless you’re talking about towing, of course. I’m very pleasantly surprised that they also gave handling special focus with suspension tweaks and bigger brakes, though. Let’s hope they also added better tires and removed the 99mph limiter, which is the biggest annoyance on these rigs.

    • It’s nothing new really, Hennessey, Lingenfelter and Callaway has been producing power upgrades for this SUV. I guess there is always a market for it, even though it looks silly.

  • I miss when Callaway actually make their own supercar and race cars. Now the only interesting car in their line up is Aerowagen.
