Review

This is a fun to drive truck in a true SVT spirit. Gets a lot of looks and compliments. A pretty rare site on the road. Performs like an SVT should.


Favorite Features

5.4L SC V8. Big fat low profile tires. Exterior. the truck looks fast even when it parked.


Suggested Improvements

Even more power, true dual exhaust with X pipe, sound system (especially speakers), a 6 speed manual tranny would be nice too.

Review

This car like ride, plus perfomance as a benefit, is exactly what I was looking for in a truck. WOW! The ford lightning is the cure for traffic blues. Driving across town in rush hour...no problem, that is if you don't get a ticket. I guess I'll take my chances.


Favorite Features

Hugs corner's, accelaration as in super charger, and comfort interior with head and leg room makes driving worthwhile.


Suggested Improvements

Speakers, and sound control on the steering wheel.
