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.

Awesome rig

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCrew King Ranch 4WD Styleside SB (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This truck has been awesome. I searched around until I found one with a 3.73 limited slip rear end; it has tons of power with the 5.4. The King Ranch leather is a lot nicer than the Lariat; the mileage is actually ok for a fairly large truck with a big v8. Owned Chevys and Toyotas and this truck rides smoother, has better build quality, and gets a lot more complements about the interior and exterior styling.




The truck

I've owned two F150's and six Fords total; this truck has been so far the best vehicle I've owned. Ford has a winner with the King Ranch and they know it.




This is not my husband's

This is the first truck I have even considered buying. I don't think I will ever go back to a car. The King Ranch is very luxuious, comfortable and a delight to drive.




Glad i bought one

I purchased the truck in April and I love it. I have had one minor problem with the cab step light on one side but the dealer fixed it right away. The truck rides great and the quality has been excellent, my only complaint is that the truck feels a little under powered but the pros are far greater. I get positive comments about the look of the truck all the time. Good job BLUE OVAL!!!




The best truck made

I love my truck. It will go ANYWHERE and do ANYTHING I want it to. In my opinon it is the best made Truck, worth the time and money to be spent on.
