2002 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab SVT Lightning 2WD Flareside SB (5.4L 8cyl S/C 4A)


Review

great performance truck. Drives like a
car and has plenty of power from the
start and more with mods. Only
downside is dramatic increase in gas
prices lately.


Best Features

Love the look of the truck. Stands out in the crowd of SUV's and trucks. Even with the eurotail's being copied for every vehicle on the road, this truck stands out with the front bumper and the little special things like the led 3rd light, the "lightning" badge and side exhaust.

Review

I absolutely love my Lightning. It has
the best of both worlds from the
utility of a truck to the performance
of a muscle car. The style and sound
is fantastic. The truck is quicker
than about 98% of all vehicles on the
road.

The supercharged engine is easy to
modify if you are thinking about
upping the performance factor. There
are bolt on modifications, such as
changing the supercharger pulley, air
filter kit, and computer chip that
will push the output from 380HP to
upwards of 450HP.


Best Features

The supercharger whine. Seats are very comfortable.


Worst Features

Interior styling is pretty bland.

Review

I have owned this Lightning since I
bought it in February, 2002. I drive it
nearly every day, and there has not
been one moment that I have regretted
purchasing this truck. It has plenty of
power, good looks, and comfort. I have
had people of all ages tell me what a
good looking vehicle it is. My wife and
I love to go on trips in it, and it is
very comfortable for both the pilot and
passenger. I also haul home maintenance
supplies in it. It is the most fun to
drive, best looking, and practical
vehicle I have ever owned (including
1958 Austin Healey 100-6, 1959
Chevrolet Impala, 1970 Olds Cutlass W-
31, 1976 Toyota Celica, 1984 Porsche
924. I love this truck!


Best Features

Power, sound, power, acceleration, power, styling, power, comfort, and power.


Worst Features

More power?

2002 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab SVT Lightning 2WD Flareside SB (5.4L 8cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I was totally happy with my purchase of
this truck through a non SVT Ford
dealer. The local SVT dealer manager
was a pompus jerk and there is no way I
would give him my business.

Like the truck and look forward to
buying the new 2004 edition with 500 HP!


Worst Features

More Power - better transmission - 5 speed with quicker kick down. Lower the body on the frame - way too much room between the top of the tires and the wheel well opening.

Review

This is an awesome truck. It was not
what I originally was looking for ,but
after a test drive- I was under her
spell. The power at the tip of your
toes is menacing. The handling is as
good as a vette and so is the
excelleration. Just ask the one that I
passed. The SVT division at Ford has
put all the other dealers on notice.
Put up or shut up!! SVT has put up and
in big way. And by the looks of the
concept lightning they only have to
compete with themselves.


Best Features

The styling is beautiful. A real head turner. Both inside and out. The way the truck throws you back in your seat when you punch into it.


Worst Features

The only thing would be a meaner looking hood.
