Review of the 1999 Ford F-150

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Near perfect interior design and materials. Four doors on the SuperCab. Improved engine output. Excellent off-road capability.

  • Cons

    Ford's engine choices are not as strong as the competition.

  • What's New for 1999

    The Standard trim level is replaced by the Work trim level. XLT and Lariat models get standard four-wheel antilock brakes, and the XLT gets standard air conditioning. All SuperCab models get a fourth door and horsepower is improved for engines across the board. Option content is shuffled and simplified as Ford reduces the number of optional features.

Hard truck to kill.

Vehicle: 1999 Ford F-150 XL 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB

Great truck overall, it may not have the power or ride of the newer truck but in brute reliability this truck has done me well. Its a truck with a 2v 5.4 so good mileage is not a goal to reach for but I can hit 15 mpg if I baby it. In terms of power it still has lots of get up and go and will easily pull my 7900lb car carrier in the hills of Kansas. On maintenance it can be hard to do somethings like change out plugs because of how tight the engine bay is but otherwise its a good way for a beginning DIY person to learn how to work on a truck. The interior is in my experience indestructible save for the cloth seats which are a wear item anyway. I will never have a truck without Vinyl floors.

Good solid truck. Only 3 complaints with it thus far: VERY slow acceleration with the V6; typical Ford "phantom" wipers (electrical short in wiper stalk) and finally, poor gas mileage, but that's what you get with a little engine pulling around a large vehicle. Good all-around useful truck--very varsatile. Good daily friver and good work truck.
