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.

Well pleased with it

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Bought this truck new in late 1999. It has been a great truck. Has 82,000 miles and I replaced the front brake pads at about 70,000 and replaced the drivers electric door lock at around 50,000. Has all the power I need (5.4 engine). Gas mileage is 14-17 mpg. I have owned 2 new Ford, and 4 new Chevy trucks in my life and while I liked both I have to give Ford the edge in quality in these 6 trucks.




Love my ford truck

Vehicle: 1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Bought my truck from my father in law. His loss. It is a fantastic truck. No major problems. It is a four wheeling beast in the sand dunes. Never was a Ford fan before but my next truck will probably be a Ford again after my time spent with this one.




Standard ford headaches

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

My truck generates the standard Ford problems annually. The 'hem' seam on all four doors developed rust (which Ford refused to fix as the rust did not perforate the metal), phantom windshield wipers (unfixed), coil pack failure (1) and air conditioner refrigerant leaks requiring annual recharge and also the famous Ford door crack above the intersection of the front and rear door on both sides. The irritation is that these problems are all reported but Ford refused to address the problems until (reportedly and time will tell) the 2004 redesign. How does one say "Cash Cow".




Has been a real workhorse

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

I have 155,000 miles on the odometer and it still drives great. I have only replaced the brakes, alternator, and door lock relay. I drive alot- but use it regularly to haul hay. I cannot believe I'm not having to look for a new truck yet. I do routine maintenance but this truck has held up better than any truck I've ever owned including multiple GMC. I very glad ford had a rebate the week I went looking for a new truck




Built ford tough

this truck has no rattles inside or out. This truck is the most reliable truck I have ever had.




Good truck, bad safety

by on
Vehicle: 1999 Ford F-150 Lariat 4dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

See IIHS 40mph offset test - very bad performance, would not buy another based on this test. Safety is bad, however drives good and is reliable Good quiet ride Great engine power Has been reliable Paint quality questionable some rattles Stereo CD player overheats and quits playing

Trying to find a used canopy for my 97 f150 long bed. 97-04 have a tapered bed which makes it more difficult to find the right one. Does anyone know if a canopy from a 1999 f250 would fit? I know the?...

I may be mistaken, but I believe the last year of manufacture for the "old" F-250 (that is, same body style as the F-150) was 1999. All F-250s and up are now "Super Duty" trucks, ...
