ReviewA fun and exctng vehcl, prfrmnc
on par with a BB muscle car. The
interior is very unsophstcted,
boring and neither fnctnal nor
sprty. The tires work very well but
last about 10K mi due to the wght
and ease of unintntnal tires spin.
It is geard so low that at 80 mph it
runs at 2500 rpm, it seriously needs a
6 spd man tranny. It tows my boat very
well. It runs the advertised 140mph and
feels like it's on rails. The hndlng
is superb, thumbs up to SVT for a very
neutral well-blncd hndlng
pckg. The SC is awsome, a chip will
improve shifts and adds some power. It
is a narrowly focused package that
lacks versitility, but the prfmnc
Worst FeaturesBigger rear rim and tires. Six Speed transmission. Bucket seats and console. IRS Suspension. Humm....That would make it a 2005 ligtning huh. Thanks Ford..!!! How about the same engine and handling in a ZR2 4x4 Truck package. That would really be awsome.
