Saleen is best known for its lineup of Ford Mus­tang vari­ants and be­spoke su­per­cars, but the com­pany has been in the truck and SUV game for more than two decades as well. Its lat­est ma­chine, the Sportruck XR, ap­plies the com­pany’s pen­chant for per­for­mance to dirt roads in­stead of dragstrips.

“Con­tin­u­ally adding to our lineup of per­for­mance ve­hi­cles is paramount to Saleen Au­to­mo­tive,” says Saleen CEO Steve Saleen. “We are in­tro­duc­ing an off-road truck to our high­per­for­mance ve­hi­cle lineup with the Sportruck XR.”

The Sportruck XR joins the on-road–bi­ased Sportruck, bor­row­ing the bones of the Ford F-150 XLT with the 301A equip­ment group. To that chas­sis, Saleen adds cus­tom front and rear bumpers; body-color door and tail­gate han­dles and wheel flares; and a Saleen grille, side steps, tail­gate panel, and power hood. In ad­di­tion to the ex­te­rior up­dates, the model also gets branded em­broi­dery on the seats’ head­rests, sig­na­ture white-faced gauges, branded floor mats, and a dash plaque with the truck’s se­ri­al­ized Saleen VIN.
