Muscle Trucks That Don't Look the Part

Here are some high-performing trucks and SUVs that do not necessarily look like the muscle monsters they are.

1971-72 GMC Sprint SP

The sister to the Chevy El Camino, the Sprint was nearly identical in engine, performance, and body. The SP 454 came with a whopping 365-hp. This baby was tough, though less than 1,000 were produced.

Ford SVT F-150 Lightning

The second generation of Ford's Lightning pick-up came in 1999 with a 5.4-Liter Triton V8 and an Eaton supercharger. The peak of this model was the 2001 version. At 380-hp and 450 lb-ft of torque, The Lightning lived up to its name as the fastest production truck in the world, going from 0 to 60 in 5.2 seconds.

1978 Dodge Red Express

Part of Dodge's Adult Toy Program, the Dodge Red Express was the fastest production vehicle produced in America. In fact, in 1978, it was second only to the Corvette as the fastest vehicle built. You see why it was called "The Last American Hot Rod." It came with a 360 V8 and an A-727 transmission, and twin 2-1/2" vertical stacks. The Red Express is a real beauty and muscle machine.

Dodge Dakota 5.9 R/T

Produced from 1998 to 2003, the Dodge Dakota 5.9 R/T came with a 5.9-Liter Magnum V8 that produced 250-hp and 345 lb-ft of torque. Going from 0 to 60 in 7.08 seconds, the Dakota achieved performance levels only seen in sports cars a decade earlier.
