Turbo Saturn Sky, Ford joins with Foose, Silverado 427

SEMA: Silverado 427

One more part of the General Motors fleet of SEMA concepts, the automaker unveiled the Silverado 427, harking back to the heyday of the muscle car. The Silverado 427 is powered by GM Powertrain’s 7.0L LS7, the same engine as in the Corvette Z06, which is also available as a ‘crate engine’ package from GM Performance Parts. But the Silverado 427 is more than a pickup with a more powerful engine, featuring a lowered suspension for better handling and, of course, an exterior styling package, including new front and rear fascias, hood, cowl, tailgate, tonneau and body-side cladding.

 

SEMA: Gravana Tuning Turbo Saturn Sky

General Motors and Gravana Tuning unveiled its highly customized Saturn Sky concept at this week’s SEMA show. The Gravana Tuning Turbo Saturn Sky delivers more of what roadster buyers are looking for, including all-around performance and ’stop-dead-in-your-tracks’ design.

On the engine front, Gravana added a Hahn Racecraft 16G intercooled stage 3 turbocharger to the Saturn Sky’s 2.4L Ecotec engine, which results in 348-hp and 341 lb.-ft. of torque. Handling is enhanced by an adjustable coil-over-shock suspension system, which can lower the vehicle by as much as 3 inches. Massive stabilizer bars eliminate body roll, and 14-inch drilled and slotted front brake rotors, with four-piston calipers, pull it all to a stop.

But a concept wouldn’t be concept without exterior modifications. So the Gravana Tuning Turbo Saturn Sky sports unique front and rear fascias, bodyside panels and rear center exit exhaust.

 

Ford joins with Foose for special edition 2007 models

Ford has joined up with car customizer Chip Foose to design a series of special edition models for the 2007 model year, according to Automotive News. Foose is known for his million-dollar one-off creations that have won “America’s Most Beautiful Roadster” award six times.

Robert Parker, Ford brand car marketing manager, said the first vehicle Foose will modify will be an F-150 truck. Foose said he would “love to refine and play with a Fusion,” which has to be a model high on Ford’s list as well.

The Foose special editions will be true to the “Foose DNA,” but remain affordable, said Parker. The vehicles will be assembled at regular Ford facilities as well as at third-party manufacturers — similar to the arrangement with Carroll Shelby for his special edition Mustangs.

Ford did not provide estimated for how many Foose special edition vehicles will be sold, but they will be sold through Ford’s regular dealerships.
