2001 Ford F-150 SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT 2WD Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought this truck used with 54000 miles on it. It has severed me well. It has 178000 on it now. The trany went at 101000. After 75000 you should keep a extra ignition coil in the garage, you will need it. The 4x4 is amazing, I have never been stuck anywhere,and I go off road alot. She hauls an amazing amount of weight. I was looking to replace her,but I will hold on until the last heart beat.She's just that good.Change the oil every 3000 and trany 30000 and she'll treat you right.5.4L rocks, I can get 18 mph if I drive normal. It usually gets 16 mph.


Best Features

4x4 on the switch, cabin room, power,ease of maintainance


Worst Features

Easier access to heater core.

Review

This is the 2nd new Ford F150 I have owned. The first was a 1990 model and I drove it for 11 years and it had 200,000 miles on it when I traded it in. I have had this one for almost 9 years now and its up to 180,000 miles and still running great. It has had normal maintenance plus a couple of little hiccups along the way, but overall a great truck and fun to drive. I have the V6 model and since I don't do any heavy towing, it is fine and the acceleration is great. I love sitting up high and seeing the road.


Best Features

I like the comfort of the front seats - very comfortable for me since I am 6'-1 tall. The leg room in the backseat behind mine when I am driving is not that great, but for kids its fine. The finish both exterior and interior is very good. I have kept it washed and waxed and it looks new today


Worst Features

The gas mileage on the V6 is not as good as I would have expected - anywhere from 15 mpg to 18 mpg.

Review

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


Best Features

The truck looks like new and has a great paint job. The compass and the air temperature gauges are very handy. The radio/DVD player sounds great.


Worst Features

Ford has done a great job making this truck and it not only hauls like it should, it makes a family sedan you won't be embarrassed to drive. It doesn't get great gas mileage, but it weighs a lot.

Review

187k miles(!). Smokin deal for babied truck I couldn't pass up. Steering, tranny, engine, brakes = superb. I researched trucks for wks. 2001 F150 is SOLID with awesome reliability. I drove many Chevys and none of them felt as robust as the F150. This is an incredibly well built truck with outstanding ext paint quality, plenty of muscle, & smooth ride. With flowmaster exhaust it roars like a lion. Handling is outstanding for a 9 year old truck. Power steering is perfect touch and feel. Adjustable pedals, compass, outside temp, pwr everything, big center console, incredible leg room in back, etc are all just sauce on a juicy slab of grade A beef. Truly Ford hit a homerun with this model yr


Best Features

4 doors, leg room (I am 6'3 and there is plenty of room to spare), 5.4l V8 (vroom), tow power, aesthetics, nicely padded seat with high quality springs and KILLER back support (think Serta mattress--seriously), loads of extras (compartments, lights, compass, temp, etc), etc etc etc


Worst Features

Overall this is a fantastic machine. Hard to criticize it. If you're looking for an older truck to buy cash as we were, this is the one you want: 2001 Lariat 5.4 liter V8 w. off road package. Feel the weight of the doors. Listen to them slam tightly shut. Compare to Chevy. No comparison.

Review

Our F-150 has been a very good pickup and has been very reliable. It has only required one non-wear item repair and that was a burnt out spark plug coil. Otherwise it has been bulletproof. It has a 3.55 rear differential so it gets OK mileage (14/16). The 5.4 engine and drive train is very strong and it can pull much more than one would one expect. Snowmobiles, 20 ft boat, 38 ft rv trailer, bobcat on a flatbed, no problem. Just add electronic break controls, turn off the overdrive, and you're good to go. Its a great trip mobile too, but the gas bill gets a little high on long trips.


Best Features

5.4 engine is sweet. 4X4 system goes through a lot. 6 disc CD changer keeps the kids happy. Good heater and A/C. Comfy seats. Keypad entry. Adjustable foot pedals.


Worst Features

A little better mpg would be nice. Maybe sit a little lower.
