Review of the 2004 Ford F-150 Heritage

  • It may be last year's model, but if all you need is a no-frills work truck, the Heritage offers good value and a functional design.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Available V6 and manual transmission, respectable road manners, low pricing.

  • Cons

    Limited engine choices and feature availability, poor IIHS crash test result, the new F-150 is bigger, faster and stronger.

  • What's New for 2004

    The F-150 Heritage is a carryover of last year's model and therefore presents no new changes. Intended primarily as an affordable work truck, the F-150 Heritage is offered as a standard or extended cab in XL and XLT trim with limited features lists. Notably, the Heritage models are the only F-150s that can still be equipped with a V6 engine and a manual transmission.

Ford truck fan since 1979

Vehicle: 2004 Ford F-150 Heritage 2dr Regular Cab XLT Rwd Styleside LB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)

I have owned Ford trucks since 1979. The only problem I have ever had was when a large dealership was unwilling to do minor warranty work. I usually buy a truck new and drive it for years and sell or trade them at 200,000 miles. I just bought this Heritage after trading in a 89 F-250 with 230,000 miles on it. This Heritage is so much better than that F250 even when it was new and don't get me wrong I loved my F 250. It is SO comfortable yet it still feels like a sturdy truck. Getting things in and out of the back is SO much easier. My only issue with this one is that I will not be able to do some of my own maintenance on it but that is OK. I am disabled and have to quit working on them.
