Saleen Adds 700-Horsepower Off-Road Sport Truck To Its Lineup

In advance of the Mustangs Northwest 38th Annual Mustang Roundup in Bellevue, Washington, Saleen Automotive is lifting the cover on its latest power pickup — the Saleen Sport Truck XR. A variation on the company’s extant street-performance Sport Truck, this one is built to take the fun off the highway.

We are introducing an off-road truck to our high-performance vehicles lineup with the Sport Truck XR. — Steve Saleen, Saleen Automotive

“Furthering Saleen Automotive’s commitment to continued growth in the performance car and truck markets, we are proud to debut our Saleen Sport Truck XR,” Saleen Automotive President Amy Boylan said.

Sporting a Saleen XR Suspension with more suspension travel for the most demanding conditions, the Saleen Sport Truck XR pickup is an off-road variation on the Saleen Sport Truck.

Saleen has a long history in racing, including road racing as part of the SCCA PRO Truck Series. For this effort, however, the company collaborated with legendary Ford off-road racer, Greg Foutz.

“Continually adding to our lineup of performance vehicles is paramount to Saleen Automotive,” Saleen CEO Steve Saleen said. “We are introducing an off-road truck to our high-performance vehicles lineup with the Sport Truck XR.”
