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.

One of the best!

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

I have owned this truck a little while now and it has been nothing but a blessing! The overall quality vs. the money paid in incomparable. Out does Chevy and Dodge on base model pickups. Highly recommend.




Nice truck

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

This F-150 has been a very solid vehicle for me. After the disaster that was my 1999 Olds Bravada the simplicity was a welcome change. Though I have only put about 10000 miles on it, I have not had even a minor mechanical glitch at this point. With current incentives, it cost less than my old SUV did USED. I think this will be a reliable truck for years to come. The Super Cab is not very roomy but can hold an average sized adult male on shorter trips (under a couple of hours). The back "doors" help with getting passengers into and out of the back. The ride is fairly smooth for a truck and it gets better milage than expected.




Great truck-great value

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

Got the truck at a great deal, about $9000 off MSRP. Traded a sluggish 2002 4 cyl GMC Sonoma for it. Great acceleration, solid build & frame. The ride is smooth and the clutch is firm. It handles really well over the road and around corners. From a 26 year old's perspective, it has a great look for the money->sturdy rear leaf springs give it an aggressive look (doesn't look like the typical low end work truck). I get about 17-18 mpg but I am going to see how that improves with future improvements of toneau cover/exhaust system->that isn't too bad since "I drive it!!!" Overall, I'd pick this Ford over the comparable Chevy, Dodge, and Toyota!

3rd f-150

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Ford F-150 Heritage 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)

I have owned 3 Ford F-150s and I have loved every one of them. I down-graded this time to a standard truck. First gear is lousy but 2nd will talk me to 57mph before I shift into 3rd. Of course I want the governor off this one also. It kicks in before I can shift out of 3rd. I doubt the top end will be off that much from my last truck, the Nascar version F-150. 175mph, now, 150mph?? I beat every vehicle I have ever owned, the F-150 hold up to me.
