Bought this '04 SVT used. No regrets! This truck is a beast! You want a rush? Mash the pedal and if you can, hold on! You had better be ready! I get tons of looks and complements every time that I drive this beauty. Respectable MPG for such power (13/18.) Had it for 7 months now and no problems. The only complaint I have is that I don't have enough time to drive it more. I have only put 1000 miles on it.
To steal a line from another reviewer, the gas pedal. Better than any ride at Disney or Six Flags.
Speakers. If you have a greattruck, it should have a great sound system. Although, I have to admit that the superchargers whine is the sweetest sound coming from this truck.
The truck is fun to drive. It's very fast stock but if you throw some modifications it's even faster. The style, it looks mean. The interior is great. Suede seats, leather wrap steering wheel. The racing tires for better traction. The rims are very nice with SVT unique caps. It's just a cool truck.
Fun truck to drive. Good handling and performance when purchased new. It only gets better with a lowering kit and a few performance bolt-ons. This is a performance truck with no equals when comparing cost. This truck is my daily driver that puts over 400 horses to the street. 20 minutes and a few bolts, I can increase boost from the supercharger for the track. Highly recommend traction bars and slicks for the strip. This truck rocks. I'm glad I got one of the last ones. You can get this one from me whenever you pry my cold dead hands from the steering wheel.
Provide more factory options for lowering kits, supercharger options, wheels, etc. BTW - bring back the SVT Lightning!
This is a great vehicle. I drove some 2002-2003 Corvettes looking for a good performance vehicle. This SVT is as good a performer as the Corvette in a straight line unless you get the ZO6 option. This has been a pleasure to drive and have had a ton of good feed back on the truck.
Although I have only had this
Lightning a few days, I know I will
love it. This is the 8th new Ford
since 1989 and I am obviously a Ford
fan. The power it has and the
potential for more power is almost
unlimited, but I will probally leave
mine stock.....maybe. The interior is
VERY comfortable for 2.
