Review of the 2003 Ford F-150

  • With a wide variety of cabs, styles and equipment from which to choose, you can't go wrong. No wonder it's the best-selling vehicle in the world.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Wide range of configurations and features, capable powertrains and suspension, attractive styling inside and out.

  • Cons

    Poor IIHS crash test result, everybody and his brother has one.

  • What's New for 2003

    Arriving in 2003 for the XLT supercab styleside configuration is the Heritage Edition, which includes 17-inch wheels, a chrome cab step and various stylistic flairs such as a black bedliner, a lower valance, paint striping and a paint scheme with a raised cut-line. Also new is an STX edition for the XL- and XLT-trimmed regular and supercabs that includes an MP3 player combined with a monochromatic color scheme and clear lights, among others. Upgrades for the fancy King Ranch flavor consist of fake wood for the interior, lighted step bars and an in-dash six-disc CD changer. For the Lariat, expect a standard rear window defroster and a Pioneer CD and cassette system (the latter is also newly available on the XL and XLT). Harley-Davidson models have the option of getting a two-tone black-and-silver paint. Finally, a new LATCH system helps you tie down the kiddie seats properly.

Vehicle: 2003 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat Rwd Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

From a former Chevy owner this truck is great! I have had no problems with this truck. The 4.6l could use a little more power but is solid and reliable engine.

Vehicle: 2003 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab Lariat Rwd Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Yeah.....so after driving small 2 door cars since I was 16 (I'm only 21 now), I decided on a truck for a few reasons. I like being able to haul anything I want, helping out others, and just being in a big car up above everyone else. It's not listed in the options on this website, but the 2003 also has available the 5.4L V8. This thing rocks, it's got all the power you could ever want, and the comfort of the perfect luxury car.
