2003 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab SVT Lightning Rwd Flareside SB (5.4L 8cyl S/C 4A)

Review

This truck can best be described as Ford's rendition of a Corvette with a pickup bed. Eyeball-flattening acceleration, sports car handling, and the ability to carry a half ton of stuff in the back. My only two complaints are the lack of a manual transmission (although it does have the best automatic I've experienced) and the gas mileage: 14 MPG on the mandatory premium fuel. Ouch! But that's the price you pay for this much fun and utility in one good-looking package.

Favorite Features

Acceleration, supercharger scream, crisp and responsive automatic transmission, styling and utility.

Suggested Improvements

More torque is always welcome, as is the availability of a manual transmission. A sound system with more wattage and a subwoofer would be nice (although the stock system isn't bad). And a slightly louder exhaust, believe it or not.
