Look-Alike
When the Adrenalin made its debut at the New York auto show, many in attendance thought it was the same Sport Trac revealed only a month earlier in Detroit. The visual cues were so close, we had to take a second look. But that's part of the new SVT strategy. Rather than emphasize a unique look like the regular-cab shortbed F-150 Lightning, SVT is moving closer to the Mercedes-Benz AMG or BMW M models--high-performance vehicles with an understated design. That means only discerning performance aficionados will be able to distinguish between the Explorer and its SVT counterpart (with the TrailBlazer SS here, we expect Ford will have to do it), or the Sport Trac and the Adrenalin.--M.W.
