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.
