Review of the 2001 Ford F-150

  • One of our favorite light-duty pickups, especially in Super Crew format.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Wide range of configurations and optional features, capable powertrain and suspension, attractive styling.

  • Cons

    Everybody and his brother have one.

  • What's New for 2001

    Besides the introduction of the four-door SuperCrew, America's most popular truck receives only minor changes in 2001. Power adjustable accelerator and brake pedals are now standard on all F-150 Lariat models and optional on XL and XLT trucks. The Work Series model is no longer available, but there is a newly created Work Truck option group that deletes certain equipment from the XL model. Child safety-seat anchors and four-wheel ABS are now standard equipment on all trucks. XL and XLT trucks have upgraded standard-equipment radios.

A good friend

Vehicle: 2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XL 4WD Styleside LB (4.6L 8cyl 5M)

This truck has been so reliable and great looking I hate to trade it in for another one. The radio has a rich sound, I just put the 3rd set of tires on it at 110,000 miles. I have not done any suspension work except shocks. I have used synthetic oil every 6,000 miles and have never had to add any oil between changes. It's a good friend




Quality not job one

Vehicle: 2001 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab XL 4WD Styleside LB (4.6L 8cyl 5M)

Overall the truck has been okay for a truck. Same old Ford quality though. Noisy transmission, loud power steering pump, and mushy suspension. Transmission hunts when pulling a boat and loaded. Poor window seal quality, almost all doors and window seals are now falling apart or off. Paint quality on roof was factory poor, checking and cracking. To top it off the Original OEM tires were dry-rotting at 25,000 miles.
