The Saleen Supercharged Sport Truck packs a punch at 450 bhp @ 5200 RPM, and with 500 lb-ft of torque @ 4000 RPM which is due in part to the unique, patented, high-flow Saleen Series VI integrated twin-screw supercharger. Here, air is compressed through the twin screws and then runs through the dual-stage, water-to-air intercooler, which reduces the intake air temperature. With this cool, dense air, the Saleen Powerflash™ performance calibration system radically increases the power and performance.

In recognizing the trend of consumers wanting more choices, the Saleen Sport Truck will be offered as a normally aspirated, 3-Valve Sport Truck, which offers 325 bhp @ 5000 RPM, and with 400 lb-ft of torque at 4000 RPM.

I like, I like.

Cool. But why? I don't understand the whole sport truck deal.

I own a house. It has a yard. Both require maintenance. In 1999 I traded in my '88 5.0LX Mustang for a Ranger 4x4.

You do NOT want to take yard waste and dogshit to the landfill under the hatchback of a Mustang, and 4x8 sheets of lumber and 10' 4x4's don't fit in there too well either - not to mention things like closet doors, etc.

Trucks are USEFUL, but they ought to be FUN, too.

Wish I could afford a fast sport truck.

Cool, but I'll stick with the SRT-10 for my super-truck needs.

Local Ford dealership has gone to stocking Rousch modified Ford vehicles after having too many problems with Saleen modified Fords.

I'd sooner do the mods to make a hot to trot Ford myself in my driveway than pay for some Saleen sticker mobile.


I love the Saleen S7 but that is it for things that wear the official "Saleen" badging.

Me neither...Trucks are for hauling and towing...I wouldn't want to be in one when its time to take on those corners at high speed...nice looking though

My idea of a sport truck is an F250 turbo diesel with huge amounts of torque thanks to a performance chip, turbo mods, and maybe a little nitrous/propane injection.

Somewhere out there is a video of a lifted F350 quad cab doing a VERY low ET 1/4 mile drag and blowing the ever loving doors off of an older late 80s RX7. By that I mean he lets it get the jump, he does what I believe to be a 4wheel drive launch, and absolutely humiliates the RX7.

Will see if I can find it.

I have to agree with Bama here. As a GM guy, I read up on the $49,000 Chevy Silverado SS. It's 6.0 Liters, and AWD in an extended cab package. Part of me likes it but part of me doesn't get it.

Hey M-M, I will try to remember to post something when we get one( or more of these).
The problems dealers have with Saleens are not always the cars fault. It is more than likly the piss poor warrenty reimbursment times. It takes months sometimes to get them to pay.
BTW, we sell Saleen, Roush, and Steeda. They all have their good points and bad points.

This isn't the Ford I was talking about but something similar. Something like this would be infinitely more practical both off road and for towing, plus you would have a sweet sleeper for shaming 80+% of the modified cars out there on the street.

Wheels are ugly on the Ford, and the whole Dodge is ugly.

I don't really get it either. In my mind, a truck is for hauling, four wheeling, and towing stuff. Those blinged-out pickups are like lipstick on a pig.

I see your international, and raise you a customized F-650.

The 6.0 AND the AWD are gas hogs by themselves, put them together with a 23 gallon tank, and you have to practically pull into every gas station you see.
