SALEEN SPORTRUCK ADDED TO VEHICLE PERFORMANCE LINE
CORONA, CA, Jan. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saleen Automotive will reveal its latest Saleen-designed performance vehicle, the 2018 Saleen Sportruck, on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Scottsdale, AZ, at 11:00 A.M. and live on Facebook (Facebook.com/Saleen/).
Steve Saleen’s extensive history in truck racing includes the most wins in the SCCA Truck Series and well as a national championship. Saleen, no stranger to the truck market, began its heritage with Sportrucks in the 1980s with Ranger pickup trucks, S331 Pickup trucks, and the limited-edition Supercharged Harley Davidson for Ford. Saleen’s level of performance and design makes the new 2018 Sportruck a must-have for the enthusiast.
“This addition to the product lineup demonstrates the Saleen Company’s commitment to its Brand and continued growth in the sport car and truck markets, returning Saleen back to its position of dominance,” stated Saleen Automotive President Amy Boylan. “The return to our heritage with the Saleen Sportruck is a perfect fit for our program. We now have a full line of high-performance vehicles carrying the Saleen Brand,” said Saleen CEO Steve Saleen.
The Sportruck will be offered as a 700 HP V8 Supercharged edition with a full flow Saleen designed exhaust system, and other power options. It will also be offered in RegularCab, SuperCab, and SuperCrew. All design elements hold true to Saleen’s exceptional aerodynamic designs. The Truck will feature Signature Saleen fender vents, a minimum-drag, high-downforce front facia, side skirts, and a unique functional rear facia while still maintaining the utility of the truck. It is also equipped with Saleen Racecraft Suspension with Racecraft specific-rate front coil springs, front performance shocks, specific-rate rear leaf springs, rear performance shocks, and front sway bar and bushings. Equipped with Saleen Alloy 22x10-inch front and rear wheels, the Sportruck will ride on General Tire Grabber 305/40/22 front and rear rubber.
The Performance interior includes Saleen signature two-tone leather sport seats with Saleen embroidered headrests, front and rear floor mats with Saleen embroidery, Saleen Race-inspired pedals, Saleen White Face gauges, Saleen race-inspired center-stripe leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a serialized Saleen plaque.
