Ford F-150 SVT Lightning pickup 2002
· The ultimate in Macho pickup trucks,
· Sinfully aggressive acceleration,
· Gorgeous exhaust noises,
· The outrageous pickup that makes a Statement!
Let’s makes one thing clear at once. This is not a pickup for everybody. It’s for those who believe that muscle cars should be muscle pickups. They’re looking for a truck that will perform like a sports car—or close to it. The Lightning is a polarizing vehicle. You either love it or hate it, but a lot of people love them. It’s a niche vehicle that was almost unique when it first appeared in 1993.
Detroit has long installed powerful engines in small bodies. In the case of the Lightning, Ford shoehorned a supercharged V-8 that packed 380 hp at 4,750 revs in a standard two-wheel drive pickup with a standard cab. It’s a heavy vehicle, but can accelerate from 0 to 60 in 5.2 sec (I didn’t try it), tow 5,000 pounds, and carry 800 pounds into the bargain. The Lightning is a pickup with gorgeous excesses, which you can, at least theoretically, use as a daily driver (the growling from the exhaust will scare passers by). When you sit in the driver’s seat, you’re quite high above the road. Everything else seems typical of an F-150 of this vintage, until you turn the ignition switch. There’s an instant deep, menacing growl that warns of speed in your future. I maneuvered cautiously through the traffic, this being a large vehicle, and headed for the open road. The handling is docile if a trifle loud in traffic, but once you hit the open road the fun begins. The acceleration is instant, forthright, and truly galactic, pushing you inexorably back into your seat. A deeply primordial growl accompanies your push on the throttle, for the engine always makes itself felt, especially when the supercharger kicks in. The Lightning has somewhat stiff suspension and feels a trifle heavy, although it is less ponderous than many other pickups. When you hustle it through corners, the throttle pickup is instantaneous, so you need to be a little careful and learn the pickup’s ways before you push yourself through hairpins at speed. In some respects, the engine is more advanced than the Bilstein shock absorbers and suspension, which owes much to traditional pickup design. Excellent brakes make the ride safer. The excitement of the Lightning comes from its truly visceral acceleration and thrust, which set it apart from other pickups of its day.
Definitely not a pickup for everyone, the Lighting is classically American in its brutal acceleration and unashamed musculature. Lightnings are relatively rare and are much in demand in the marketplace by enthusiasts, nay fanatics, especially men, who adore pushing their pickups fast and sometimes to the limit.
This is the first Lightning to visit the lot since I have driven Len’s cars. It’s a white example in as-new condition, with ONLY 14,000 miles on it, which makes it probably the lowest mileage Lightning on the market anywhere. It’s been carefully checked out and comes with a nice bed cover. The price reflects the exceptionally low mileage. This is an interesting buy for someone who covets a classic muscle pick up in as new condition. Expensive, yes, but definitely worth it for the long haul if Lightings are your automotive nirvana.
