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


Review

I've been driving this truck for about a month. It has been used for about two years, but only has 9K miles on it. It's SWEET. I am absolutely in LOVE with this truck! I couldn't ask for anything more.


Best Features

Handling, power (duh), style, the looks I get...man this is fantastic.


Worst Features

In-dash cd player...keypad entry...pretty much all the improvements they made to the '03 lightning.

Review

If only it could be modified without voiding the warranty!!!! This truck acts more like a car in its behavior, and less like a truck. Will not part with it until the new one comes out.


Best Features

The supercharger whine!!!


Worst Features

Six speed? Stronger bottom end on the motor? More bucket-like seats? Im reaching here......

Review

I have no regrets buying my 2001 Ford Lightning. It has all the handling and performance one could ask for from a 35,000ish dollar vehicle. You also get the functionality of a shortbed truck that can haul a 16 ft. trailer or another vehicle. I also own a 2002 and it's just as good! Thank you.


Best Features

Performance off the line and the handling. It does not handle like a truck entirely however the ride height is just like a truck.


Worst Features

A bit more horsepower off the line and come stock with synthetic fluids for longevity. I personally would like to see a price decrease because the 2004 Lightning will surely be a $40,000 vehicle.

Review

Incredible performance. Would like to see leather interior, and higher quality on the body assembly. The dash looks alot better with ballistic nylon package, and an Alpine stereo helps alot.


Best Features

Performance.


Worst Features

Get rid of the plastic interior, and add would or another classic finish. Move up to the current standard in luxury performance vehicles

Improve the interior. Still plain, could use a facelift in the interior.
