What happened to sporty pickup trucks like SVT 150 or Ram SRT10?

All I see are massive ugly blocks on wheels, wheter it's Ford, Chevy or Dodge. What happened to these cool ones like 150 SVT, Ram SRT10 or GMC Syclone? Imagine current technology take on them.

        It's not that far from it. You can buy new F-150's with dealer installed and warrantied supercharger kits. After that it's just a few simple bolt-ons to get you to those speeds.

        It's funny how this thing go aggressively shat on for being a 0-60 one trick pony. Now that seems to be the only thing that matters in a vehicle, especially EV's. Oh how the times have changed.

          I think that was OPs point, there isn't a current truck than can handle like this.

          Lightnings handle well for pickups.

            Those manufacturers are NEVER going to make another regular cab sports truck.
            Might as well build one.
            Or buy the older models.

            Only in recent years with Unlimited Trophy Truck class and $400,000 vehicles has 4x4 beaten 2wd times in Baja 500/1000.

            Don't get me wrong.
            I have 3 trucks and 2 of them are 4x4.
            But that 2wd has been up and over Devils Slide.
            Weight distribution and a posi/locker will outperform 95% of factory 4x4's.

            Ehhhh not with hills and winter conditions. 2wd works perfectly fine IF you have momentum. You aren't getting started from a standstill on a icy hill with anything RWD even with top of the line studded tires, a frickload of weight over the rear end and a locker. My work van has good winters, an LSD and 300+lbs over the rear axle and it's still shit. Meanwhile you easily can with non studded winters or even a good set of A/T's with 2 open diffs and 4hi. 4lo isn't even necessary 99% of the time.

            I don’t do any crawling or off-roading like that, but a good set of tires on a rear wheel drive truck with a limited slip plus some weight will get you through some nasty stuff. My work truck with shit in the bed is decently capable when driving across site. Empty though I’ve had to be pulled out of slightly soft areas because Cummins are very nose heavy.

            Honestly, you don't need 4x4 or a LSD or even a powertrain. Real off roading just needs a winch.

          A Lightning has suspension set up for handling, a regular base model is set up for hauling/towing capacity.

    Because no one wants a sporty truck, they want a BIG truck so everyone can see how BIG and MANLY they are. They still sometimes make BIG trucks that have lots of power, like the Raptor or TRX, but those still have to work with the fact that the base model whose body they share is still a land barge.

    They are neat but ultimately trucks are better served with nice big tires and large displacement engines for highway miles and pulling stuff. I’ll take my factory diesel with 1200 ft lb.

    Around $50-60k gets you a 700hp supercharged V8 F150 with a full factory warranty, they still exist. Most aren't as popular anymore since part of the truck meta is currently to have the most offroady-looking jacked up truck possible with no room left for a "sport truck".
    Something like a 2WD, single cab RAM TRX built for the street would be badass for instance - considering that none of the spotless ones I see daily have probably ever left the pavement.

    The official SVT explanation for why they stopped making the Lightning was that new trucks became too big, so making them handle well was becoming too difficult, so they just made it into the Raptor instead and since that's a huge success everyone followed suit. I think Roush, Shelby and some other places still sell supercharger kits you can install on your truck while still retaining warranty, it's not the same thing but it covers the niche

    Shelby makes sport versions of the F150 but they're special order. The standard models like the Raptor and Ram TRX are all offroad focused.
