There’s a rumble in the dark - the echo of pavement cracking and sidewalks snapping. Across Seattle men and women hurry to their windows, wondering what kind of beast could cause such havoc. Their questions are soon answered by the roar of a V8.
The 2018 F-150 has arrived - and Saleen has revved it to maximum capacity.
According to Torque News, Ford has partnered with aftermarket tuner, Saleen, for the ultimate half-ton experience. The 2018 F-150 has been fitted with a suite of enhancements, allowing it to spit out a monstrous 700 HP! Bolstered by a 5.0L V8, this truck decimates the competition. It blends both natural aspiration and supercharged capabilities to ensure segment-defining power, and its sport-tuned suspension promises nimble handling on every curve.
To further delight pick-up fans, Saleen is tailoring the F-150’s fascia as well - ensuring aerodynamic performance through: side-skirts, a sculpted hood, and a drag-reducing grille. This will pair with a functional air dam system, which should improve intake ratios and optimize speed. This truck is in a class of its own.
We can’t wait to test it out!
No official release date has been given for Saleen’s 2018 F-150. We anticipate a nation-wide launch before the end of the year, however - and we know that our customers will be begging to slip behind the wheel.
