1993 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning

The 1993 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning was a sporty new incarnation of an old favorite.  The basic F-150 pickup model was updated with aerodynamic body styling, a luxe interior, and a lot more power under the hood; the 93 Ford F150 SVT Lightning came off the line with a 5.8 liter Windsor V8 engine putting out 284 horsepower.

Ford modified the chassis on the 1993 Ford F150 SVT Lightning a bit, adding some rigidity to balance the increased power.  The suspension was modified to bring the truck's center of gravity closer to the ground, which translated to an improved ease in handling; however, some buyers complained about the SVT Lightning only offering automatic transmission (even though it was a fancy-dancy transmission).

The 93 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning had a small production run, and demand quickly outstripped supply for this sexy performance truck.  You won't see many of these on the market today!
