Supercharged Saleen Sport Truck Introduced With 700 HP

Saleen has unveiled its all-new Sport Truck at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Based on the Ford F-150, the Sport Truck builds on Saleen’s legacy of high-performance pickups including the S331 and the supercharged Harley Davidson F-150 that was released by Ford.

Since the truck favors performance over off-roading, it features an aggressive front fascia with a revised grille and massive air intakes. The truck has also been equipped with front fender vents, a ventilated hood, and unique side skirts. Rounding out the changes are 22-inch alloy wheels which are wrapped in General Tire Grabber rubber.

The unique styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find two-tone leather sport seats with embroidered headrests. The company also installed new pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and white face gauges. Each truck will also come equipped with an individually numbered plaque on the dashboard.

Power is provided by a 5.0-liter V8 engine that has been equipped with a supercharger and a custom exhaust system. It produces 700 hp (522 kW) which is a significant increase over the standard model which develops 395 hp (294 kW).

The Sport Truck will be offered in RegularCab, SuperCab, and SuperCrew configurations and each will feature a retuned suspension with new springs, high-performance shocks, and a beefier front sway bar. Drivers will also be thankful for the high-performance Baer braking system.
