Saleen Sport Truck S331
The first report has returned from L.A. and it comes from Joel who attended the Sallen press conference at which the company unveiled its Sport Truck S331. The F-150 features Ford’s 5.4L SOHC V8 and a unique, patented high-flow Saleen Series VI integrated twin-screw supercharger, which enables the motor to produce 450 hp and a monster 500 lb-ft of torque. A non-S/C version will also be available that will make 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.

In addition to the engine treatment, the S331 gets twin side pipes, a Racecraft suspension with linear-rate coil-overs around the company’s N2 shocks, a tubular anti-roll stabilizing bar and urethane pivot bushings. Those wheels measure 23 inches in diameter and feature seven fat spokes.
Inside the S331 Saleen has wrapped the seats in double-sticch leather and thrown in race-style pedals, integrated silver panels and bezels, as well as a twin-gauge pod display above the center console.
With no SVT Lightning on dealer lots at the moment, this looks to be the only Blue Oval-badged performance pickup able to take a Dodge Ram SRT-10 to task. Saleen says it will come with a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty and list in the high $30K range for the NA version and high $40K for the supercharged version.
