5.4L Supercharged

After a short hiatus Ford resurrected the Lightning with its new F-Series body. It now came equipped with a 5.4L Triton V8 and an Eaton supercharger helping pump out an astounding 120 more horsepower than the previous generation. The Lightning's 360 horsepower and 440 ft-lbs. of torque made it the fastest production truck in the world doing 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds. The twin short-and-long-arm suspension was lowered 1/2-inch up front and the solid axle, five leaf-spring rear suspension lowered 2-inches over the standard truck's three-leaf units. This truck's offficial numbers were 0-60 mph in 5.8 seconds and finish the quarter-mile at 100 mph in 13.9 seconds. The SVT engineers worked diligently to improve the performance of the supercharger even though the supercharger itself was untouched. Compared to the 2000 model the Lightning's front air intake opening is 50 percent larger, with a 26 percent larger inlet opening in the filter box, providing more airflow to the supercharger and immediate throttle response. Additional rows of cooling tubes in the intercooler under the supercharger help improve power and efficiency. The Lightning only came equipped with a four speed automatic transmission with overdrive. For its suspension the Lightning added brand new Bilstein monotube shocks with better dampening than the previous shocks. The Lightning hugs the road like Lycra on a Tour DeFrance rider. When combined with the limited-slip differential in the rear and specially formulated Goodyear Eagle tires, the Lightning exhibits the best handling found in a pickup truck. Truly the Ford SVT Lightning's engine, transmission and suspension complement each other well. The 3.73 rear axle ratio aids in fast starts and it is amazing how solid the truck feels north of 75 mph on an empty back road. The 2001 Lightning's exterior did receive several enhancements over the previous year's model. Though the front fascia was still the same it sported a new billet-like grille and lower air intake. The headlights and tail lamps take a cue from the aftermarket import crowd - clear lenses. It's a great way to set the Lightning apart from the rest of the F-Series crowd and the rear lamps are especially striking. Finishing off the exterior are sharp-edged, 5-spoke 18" rims. Inside the Lightning the white-on-black gauges continue but now have electroluminescent backlighting. Step into this 32k mile hauler and you can deliver the groceries well ahead of the masses for only $25950.
