2004 Ford F-150 4dr SuperCab FX4 4WD Styleside 5.5 ft. SB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Had to have one based on interior and exterior styling. It's replacing a Chevy Avalanche. Ford is always 50Hp shy of Chevy and the new F150 is no exception. The 5.4L3V Triton does not feel like a 300Hp motor. Throttle response is sluggish. Bottom end and midrange feel good but the engine has no top end and there's a 5k rev limiter. Whoopie, 80% of the torque is at 1000RPM. If I want a heavy tow vehicle, I'll buy an F350.


Favorite Features

Interitor & exterior. Wow!!!


Suggested Improvements

More HORSEPOWER!!!! Quicker throttle response!!! Raise the front end to same height as rear. 4:10 gear option.

2004 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab SVT Lightning Rwd Flareside SB (5.4L 8cyl S/C 4A)


Review

the fastest, most fun, and the best looking truck on the road!


Favorite Features

the chevy smoking engine. and the supercharger and the seats and the 1/2 ton label.


Suggested Improvements

to the svt team, you have got to make the new concept lightning, the one with the super cooling tech., and please stay above 500 ponies. I will buy the first one. By the way this truck is perfect. I just hope that ford makes their concept just the way it is, maybe even better.

Review

This pickup is the best of all the Ford pickups I've owned. It has a comfortable, quite ride, excellent road vision day and night. The sound system is excellent. The majority of the controls and buttons are easy to see and use. I do wonder though why the grill was engineered to be attached to the hood? The assisted lift tailgate is a pleasure to use and the deep bed is nice also. I did have a tonneau cover by Lear installed which blocks off some of the rear view, a potentially dangerous situation, but that is not a fault of Ford.


Favorite Features

Comfortable, quite ride. Roomy interior. Good sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Buttons to change display cannot be seen while driving. Trip computer display is hard to see. Hard to get feet out by drivers side front seat.

Review

I have had all the major pickup brands in the past 10 years. I went through them all. This has to be the best pickup I have ever purchased. It's amazing, In and out amazing. I can't even think of what more to say. Power, comfort, pull, style, quality, I mean quality. The 2004 Ford F150 is so tight it's tailpipe could pop out diamonds if coal was it's fuel. Good Job Ford, I am thinking that the leader in sales is about to go far passed the competitors.. Unreal! Joseph Donato


Favorite Features

Quality and craftsmanship. The interior layout too.


Suggested Improvements

Build a convertible model.

Review

Reliable, fun to drive, at least 18mpg. city driving, comfort would have been a ten, but the bench seat leans to the inside, other than that its a fun hard working truck. Ford will be the only make that i will buy. Hope the rest of you people try a Ford soon.


Favorite Features

the large crome rims and rubber. it gives the truck a great stance


Suggested Improvements

bucket seats, I would love to buy bucket seats for it.

Review

THIS REALLY IS THE ONLY TRUCK THAT EARNED THE TITLE F-150, AND I HAVE PUT SOME EXRTA FEATURES THAT I WILL MENTION. BUT FIRST, THE TRUCK HAULS LIKE NO OTHER. CHEVY, DODGE, AND TOYOTA DON'T MATCH THE TRITON V8 THIS PUPPY HAS. WHILE IT'S NOT A F-150 LIGHTNING, IT ACCELERATES VERY WELL.


Favorite Features

AT FIRST, THE CD PLAYER. NOW I HAVE 7" SUB-SPEAKERS AND AMP FOR GREAT SOUND. PLUS THE BLACK BODY HAS YELLOW FLAMES, BUT I'M SORRY A PHOTO CANNOT BE SENT. THIS TRUCK WILL BE THE BEST FOR YEARS TO COME.


Suggested Improvements

RIGHT NOW, I DON'T THINK THE NEW F-150 NEEDS ANY IMPROVEMENT. JUST THAT IT'S TIME TO REBUILD NEW F-250 AND F-350. THANKS, FORD.

Review

I'm driving a 5.4 liter on a extended trip. This is a very refined pickup truck. I was suprised at the intitial assembly quality and materials used for the interior. The sound system is very good and the power train is very smoooth and quiet. Very good ride. Good power, but weight uses up the poneys. No wind noise. Handles well on the turns. Flawless paint and trim. Gas consumption is 15-17mph on the freeways.


Favorite Features

Build quality, materials of the interior and design. Quiet interior at 80 mph. Smooth power train and very good handling. Very good sound system. Excellent switching and instrumentation.


Suggested Improvements

Very tall and box is made for NBA players loading it. Longer seat cushions please next time. Shimmy at 65-80 and alignment and balance were checked. It is a annoyance!!!!!!
