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.

Very good pickup

Vehicle: 2004 Ford F-150 Heritage 4dr SuperCab XLT Rwd Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)

Have had this truck over 5 years now. It is not perfect but darn close. Have not had any real problems so far. I have had it back to the shop only once and that was for some door moulding that was coming loose. I don't put many miles on this truck each year but it has performed great so far. Fuel mileage could be better but hey, it's a truck. Finish/paint looks as good as the day I bought it. Probably only real complaint is road/wind noise. Some of that may be due to tires. Would not hesitate to buy this vehicle all over again.




Thought i'd never buy another

After bad experiences with Aerostar, Ranger and Taurus I vowed never to buy another Ford. F-150 Heritage 4.6L is the best truck/vehicle I've owned. Looked at new versions and Tundra, but like the size and looks of 97-2004 F-150s. Tight turning and great ride/handling. More front room than Tundra. Thought 4.6L was too small when test drove new F-150s but works well in Heritage. Hope I can haul small toy hauler with 3:31 rear end. Mileage better than my 3.0L Ranger.




Good truck

Found On Road Dead? No way is this what FORD stands for. The Ford F-150 Heritage is a great truck to celebrate 100 years in automotive industry. The vehicle handles well, is well-designed, and is great for making hauls. Ford continues to outshine and outperform all other brands with vehicles like this. Congrats, Ford, on a job well done!
