so.....now that the power figures are out for the silverado ss, what does everyone think? looks like chevy let their fans drool too much over that supposed "near 500bhp" lightning killer that will never be. yeah, the truck is coming out...and don't get me wrong, it's nice...but with only 345bhp (see chevy.com) instead of the original 479bhp, i think it's a real big disappointment. sorry, but chevy dropped the ball on this one. not only is it outpowered, but the lighting has it beat in the looks deapartment big time as well. it looks like a lowered silverado with 20" rims and nothing more. pretty lame for a "super-truck". and for those of you whose first response is "well at least it doesn't have to be supercharged to win"........guess what......that won't put your pride back together when you get smoked by the lightning next to you. bottom line....you lose. can't knock ford for using technology. power is power no matter where it comes from. just remember...popeye would have been nothing without his little can of spinach. personally, i'll take my truck with a good helping of spinach!!! hope the guys at dodge (my other favorite company) can do better with their shot at the king. i just hope they can do it without making their ram cost the same as the viper.
