SVT is not dead

OK, the new york embargo is over so you can now learn about the new SVT Adrenalin (Sport Trac).

Before you complain that it's a truck consider the following:

390 hp supercharged v8
40/60 torque split awd
fully independent suspension
6000 lb towing capacity
6 speed auto

It's basically an evo in truck form and should outhandle anything with a bed. Closer is overall concept to the gmc syclone than anything before.

As stated in the article, this is not just a concept. This is what we intend to bring to production, for the most part. I doubt the shaved handles will make it ;).

Hopefully the powertrain will stay intact.
