2001 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning 2dr Regular Cab SVT Lightning 2WD Flareside SB (5.4L 8cyl S/C 4A)


Review

It can haul ass and a boat too. It's fast and practical, what more could you want?


Favorite Features

Engine and supercharger are great, looks cool, sounds good at idle and really sounds good when you hit it


Suggested Improvements

Factory radio is nice but the speakers aren't that great; cd changer is behind passenger seat - newer models have the in-dash cd changer; needs true dual exhaust; more gauges and positioned on the side of the interior; better brakes

Review

the power and ride are awesome. I've driven Ford truck before and it is totally different. An old guy saw me and said "don't know what it is but it sure looks impressive". :) Can't wait for the next generation with 500hp.


Favorite Features

the hp and handling


Suggested Improvements

tonneau cover blocks the view of the tailgate. It needs an interior light to show when the tailgate is down. Many times I drove off with it down, luckily never lost anything...yet.

Review

Loved the ride home from the dealership... The Trans Am was demoralized. Truly a superior vehicle and hauls a 4X8 sheet of plywood too!


Favorite Features

Supercharged... it just sounds cool. I love explaining the difference from turbo charging to the uneducated masses. Then taking them for a ride.


Suggested Improvements

Should come with one of those little star bumperstickers so the cops might not give you a ticket as often. Way too easy to break the law. Watch out for slick roads. Floor it at 60 mph on wet pavement and the rear wheels will pass you up.

Review

Outstanding power and performance! A real head turner. Even doubles as a pick-up truck!!


Favorite Features

Power and drive train is without rival. Exceptional behavior in traffic or on the open road.


Suggested Improvements

In dash CD. Multi-disc changer behind the front seat is a bit of a pain.
