2003 Ford F-150 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside SB (4.2L 6cyl 5M)


I bought this truck mainly to commute
to work, with the occasional bed
hauling duty in mind. I was surprised
to see that the truck would actually
get 20 mpg if I watched the right
foot. It is the 4.2 liter six so it
does not have the oomph of the V8's
Ford offers but for my use the 6 is
more than adequate. The tranny shifts
smoothly and operates seamlessly.
I recently drove from Houston, TX to
Salem, OR in 3 days and was surprised
at the trucks willingness to provide
comfort and considerable control over
all road surfaces as very little of the
trip was taken on the interstate. I am
pleased with this truck and would
gladly buy it all over again.

Best Features

Flareside styling, especially the transition from fenders to rear bumper.The fold down center console. The extra room behind the seats.
