Saleen has set out to create the ultimate off-road pickup truck.

. Based on the Ford F-150 XLT, the Sportruck XR is designed to tackle tough terrain. Saleen has added 2.5-inch coilovers at the front and rear and new brakes with 13.8-inch rotors with two-piston calipers at the front and 13.8-inch rotors with single-piston calipers at the back.

To make it look more aggressive, Saleen also upgrades the body with custom front and rear bumpers, body-color door, and tailgate handles, body-color wheel flares, body-color grille, sidesteps, tailgate panel and power hood. It rides on a set of 17x8.5-inch six-spoke wheels wrapped in General Tire Grabber X3 tires. Inside, the headrests and floor matters are embroidered with the Saleen logo, as well as a dash plaque with a serialized VIN. There’s also an eight-way power driver’s seat, power adjustable pedals, and signature Saleen White Face Gauges. It’s available with either a naturally aspirated or supercharged engines, with the latter producing 700 hp, but no performance specifications have been provided. Rival tuner Hennessey also offers a

similarly insane off-roader based on the F-150 Raptor with the same power output
