This is straight out of motortrend.com on the new sport trac adrenalin coming out 2007/2008. This is going to be Ford's canidate in the new muscle truck line against Dodge's Ram SRT10 which carries the Viper V-10 engine. I'd save up now if you plan on getting a new car.

Ford, meanwhile, is lending the SVT treatment to its upcoming Explorer-based Sport Trac. Named Adrenalin, it has a supercharged 4.6-liter, 32-valve V-8, six-speed automatic, all-wheel drive, and, unlike SVT's new Shelby GT 500 Mustang, independent rear suspension. This new-age sport truck makes 390 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. SVT tunes the shocks and springs, and the Adrenalin gets larger front and rear stabilizer bars, too. Tires are 295/45R21s. SVT says the Adrenalin (a name used for the concept version of the 2001 Sport Trac) will match or better the last F-150 Lightning for performance. The last Lightning we tested did 0-to-60 mph in 5.1 seconds. The Chevy TrailBlazer SS is a 2006 model on sale later this year, but we'll have to wait a year and a half for its competition, as the Ford Adrenalin goes on sale about mid-2007 as a 2008 model.

edit: Sorry I put this in the wrong area. Can someone move it into the Ford Industry News section?
