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


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.
