The King is dead - Long live the KIng (Saleen S331) (SOME PICS INCLUDED)

Well this might indicate some direction in Ford's thinking...
Ater selling Saleen Focus through Ford Dealerships, Saleen is presenting a SportTrack based S331 model. This also comes just days after the SVT Adrenaline concept was announced dead... I wonder whether this will be sold through Ford Showrooms as well.

The truck will sport versions of the 5.4l SOHC 3 valve V8 engine.. the base NA V8 will put out 325 bhp @ 5000 RPM, and 400 lb-ft of torque at 4000 RPM. The SUPERCHARGED ONE puts out 450 bhp @ 5200 RPM, and 500 lb-ft of torque @ 4000 RPM.

Other features include body kit, interior accessories, exhaust and suspension.

Base price for the weaker engine is HIGH $30's and with the blower will be HIGH $40's.

me too.. but I feel like I am cheating on SVT...

Especially because it seems Ford is replacing the SVT products with Saleen products..

Think of this as the SVT's sexy roommate that you secretly lust for.

Just make sure you keep enough change for fuel expense - cause that thing is gonna get 12 mpg, and gas will be going back up to $3/gal or more soon once we get it on with Iran.

Is a blower worth $10k these days? sheeesh

All Saleens are sold at Ford dealerships anyway. Ford gets some image and profit from the development, Saleen gets a mostly pre-engineered product, and select dealers get to make good money on them.

Now you can buy the truck they were going to make and they get to use that production money on things more vital to restoring "core" business profitability.

I still liked the SportTrack's looks better. I like a little more domestic sporty look than a cleaned up aftermarket look (well, I don't like most Saleen body kits - not recently at least).

And yes, why is the supercharger so much more expensive? Bragging rights or what? A great way to add a premium mark-up in disguise!

What's Roush move now?

That's a crazy price difference. I kinda like the truck though- Saleen's style is a little over the top for my liking, but not like thrown off a cliff over the edge...

Forgive my immense stupidity here but what is the thing in the lower half of Pic 3? is it an SC? It's such a weird shape...
