2000 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


Review

This is a unique 'niche' vehicle, and being such will get you plenty of attention. My '00 dyno'd at 308 wheel HP/363 lb/ft torque in 10/04 with just an intake and new plugs. Buy a Lightning, and you will not regret it. Torque is a lovely thing, and L's have plenty. You can haul stuff, too (I haul a race car on a trailer with mine, no sweat). No, it isn't the most efficient vehicle out there. Hello? It weighs 4,800 lbs and has a supercharger! If you want efficiency, Toyota sells the Prius. Lightnings are the anti-Prius. This is one of -if not 'the'- funnest vehicle I've ever owned. Excellent daily driver. Mid-13s in the 1/4 mile. It does it all.


Favorite Features

Torque, and plenty of it. Runs 13-sec 1/4 mile ETs right outta' the box. Can tow 5,000 lbs. Ride is comfy, but not sporty. Freeway on-ramps are where this truck rules.


Suggested Improvements

The Alcantara fabric on the seats wears over time. Not a major issue, however. If we ever get a next-gen Lightning, an extended cab version would sell like hotcakes.

Review

Ever since buying this truck, i've had a blast driving it. There's nothing out there like it. Can't wait to see the new 2004 next year.


Favorite Features

The stock 360 hp. GREAT looks.


Suggested Improvements

I've changed the supercharger to a Kenne-Bell, Headers, exhaust, and chip.It is great. Next change will be a new pulley.

Review

We have a Black 2002 Lightning and a White 2000 Lightning. Terrific if you like the non-stop attention. However, you might need to keep a stealth vehicle on the sidelines, because you can't sneak around town in these!


Favorite Features

Acceleration on the freeway on-ramps, storage room behind the seats, console in the middle is comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

We're finding that the suede interior wears out fast, especially on the driver's side. It would be an improvement to have leather on the main wear points & more suede in the middle.
