The Sport Trac Adrenalin was a high-performance sport-utility truck proposed by Ford, according to Car and Driver. The Adrenalin was designed to feature a supercharged, 390-horsepower V-8 engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. The Adrenalin release, originally announced for 2007, was subsequently cancelled, states Motor Trend.
The Adrenaline, a hybrid of two earlier Ford vehicles, was designed to combine the features of the Ford SVT F-150 and the Ford Explorer Sport Trac, according to Car and Driver. Featuring four full-sized doors and sport-car perfomance capability, the Adrenaline's highlights would have included a 4.6-liter, 32-valve supercharged DOHC V-8 engine designed for heavy-duty use. The automatic six-speed transmission, featuring 390 pounds-feet of torque and a 6000-pound towing capacity, was set to be the first featured in any SVT vehicle, states Car and Driver.
Ford's Adrenaline was also designed to showcase a new all-wheel-drive system and AdvanceTrac Roll Stability Control safety system for improved handling, according to Giz Mag. The Sport Trac Adrenaline design was rounded out by 21-inch wheels wrapped in 295/45R-21 tires and oversized brakes at all four corners. In 2010, Ford decided to discontinue the entire Ford Explorer Sport Trac line to make room for the refreshed versions of the Ford Ranger and Explorer, states USA Today.
