Fast Facts:

  • The F-150 Lightning was a 150 mph truck that could tow 5,000 lbs and haul 1,350 lbs payload
  • In 2003, a Lightning hit almost 148 MPH in testing, setting a Guinness World Record for the “World’s Fastest Production Pickup Truck”. The title was short lived, however, as the Viper SRT-10 Ram truck was released the following year
  • The supercharged 5.4L Triton V8, designed by Roush and Ford’s SVT, featured low compression forged pistons, forged rods, and a forged crankshaft. It is paired with a water-to-air intercooler and an Eaton Roots-type supercharger
  • The transmission was a modified 4R100 4spd automatic straight from the HD Super Duty truck line
  • Being a truck, the Lightning had only 43% of its weight biased toward the rear. Period road testers would admit that getting a proper launch out of the hole was a bit tricky: “Best performance comes by idling off the line and gently feeding in throttle until past 4000 rpm. Too much throttle and the Goodyears spin furiously; too little and its transmission upshifts prematurely.”
  • Despite the disadvantage, the 4,700 lb Lightning could outrun a Mustang GT of the same year from 0-60, clocking a time as low as 5.2 seconds
Key Model Year Changes:

  • The final year of the Lightning. No changes were made
  • The spark plug thread issue (common on all Ford Modular engines of the era) was addressed with a new cylinder head design in 2003
  • A power bump occurred in 2001, bringing power from 360hp/440tq to 380hp/450tq. 2001 also saw the switch to a larger aluminum driveshaft (vs the old steel unit). The axle ratio in the limited slip diff was shortened to 3.73 (from 3.55)
