1997 Ford F-150 Lariat 3dr Extended Cab SB


My F150 is a '97 Ext. cab SB Lariat
(exactly like the one in the photo
section of this site) with 76,000
miles. It is a great riding truck with
plenty of power from the 5.4L V8. It is
smooth as glass on the highway. I've
noticed that the ride actually improves
when adding load or towing. Interior
design is elegant as well as user
friendly, and the build quality is top
notch, with little wind noise or
rattles. Has had no problems since new.
My only complaint is the 5.4L engine is
thirsty, getting an average of around
15-16 MPG,(city driving). I would
recommend the 4.6L unless you really
need the extra power. Overall great
