There might be a new pack leader in town. The PaxPower GMC Sierra Jackal has wild updates that allow it to run with the big dogs, such as the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX. Let’s see exactly what the new PowerPax GMC Sierra Jackal brings to the table. 

The PaxPower GMC Sierra Jackal provides off-roading upgrades

First, what is a jackal? Jackals are medium-size ominous mammals of the Canina subtribe. It includes wolves, domestic dogs, and other species. So, basically is wild and untamed. Jackal is the perfect moniker for this off-roading truck. 

The PaxPower GMC Sierra Jackal is a Sierra-based truck with a PaxPower performance package. The package is available in two different stages, allowing buyers to choose the upgrades they want. 

With the Stage 1 Sierra Jackal, you get adjustable King 2.5-inch racing performance coil-overs with reservoir and ride adjusters in the front and rear. You also get BajaKits fabricated upper control arms with uni-ball joints that are stronger than the factory-installed ball joints. 

It rides on a 3.5-inch lift and a set of 17×9-inch wheels wrapped in 35×12.5xR17 off-roading tires. The custom hood includes a wide black stripe, and you get three-inch fender flares with a Borla S-type stainless steel dual exhaust system. It’s expected to cost about $17,950 with the optional supercharger upgrade. 

What does the Stage 2 PaxPower package include? 

With the PaxPower GMC Sierra Jackal Stage 2 kit, you get the same coil overs and shocks that are included in Stage 1. You also get a long-travel BajaKit Front Prerunner suspension system, extended CV axles, and Deaver progressive leaf springs. It will cost about $29,950. 

Each PaxPower GMC Sierra Jackal kit includes a completely calibrated ECU and an optional three-year/36,000-mile warranty. You can opt for different front and rear end designs, a fabricated bumper upgrade, LED light boards, power deploying running boards, 20-inch rims, different bed covers, and an Addictive Desert Design chase rack. 

How much power does the PaxPower Sierra Jackle have?

The Supercharger upgrade is worth considering. You can go with the 5.3-liter V8 engine with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque or the 6.2-liter V8 engine with 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The Whipple supercharger setup increases the amount of power with the 5.3-liter engine to 500 hp and the 6.2-liter engine to 650 hp. 

Adding the supercharger to either the Stage 1 or Stage 2 kit will increase the price by about $12,500. The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor has a twin-turbocharged high-output engine with 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. So, both supercharged Jackal options beat it. 

However, the PaxPower GMC Sierra Jackal isn’t stranger than the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. It has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 HEMI engine with 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The Ram TRX starts at about $70,325. 

The 2021 GMC Sierra begins at around $30,100. Adding the Stage 2 kit and supercharger increases the price to about $71,950. Super trucks have a super price. The 2022 GMC Sierra AT4X is coming out soon, but we don’t know how it comes to the PaxPower upgrades yet.
