2001 Ford F150 SVT Lightning - Supercharged
This truck brings the Thunder! First debuting in 1993 as a competitor to the Chevrolet 454SS, this performance based F150 was modified by Ford's Special Vehicle Team to be more than your average pickup with increased power and handling. The second generation SVT Lightning came out in 1999 and ran until 2004 with a suspension modifications and a FlareSide bed. These Gen 2's were powered by a Supercharged 5.4L V8 that produced 380hp and offered the heavier duty F350 pickup transmission with Overdrive. Other upgrades for the 2001 model year included Lower Intake Redesigned, Air Inlet Size Increased, Power Increased to 380hp (from 360hp) and 450lb/tq, 3.55 Axle Ratio Upgraded to 3.73 Ratio, Driveshaft Size Increased From 3.5 inches to 4.5 inches. All in all, this truck meant business when you put your right foot down.
The example offered here was originally from Florida with our client purchasing it in 2012. SVT made 6,381 Lightnings in 2001 and of those, just 1,722 were finished in Bright Red. This truck also has an upgraded chrome package with aftermarket chrome wheels with the original SVT wheels included in the sale. Other noteworthy features include power windows, power locks, power brakes with discs all the way around, power steering, SVT seats, power drivers seat, steering wheel controls, cruise control, original stereo, AC, and a clean-rust free undercarriage. The car also comes with a clean CarFax report, two sets of keys with remote fob, books, owners manual, and original SVT Lightning promo flyer with all specifications.
