2002 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning

The 2002 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning saw no significant changes for the model year, except for the addition of a new color, blue, to the previous choices of white, red, black, and silver.  Other than that, the  2002 Lightning relied on its reputation for sleek styling and sporty handling to appeal to the performance truck market.

Features like specialized 18-inch wheels, a modified suspension (based on the classic F-150 platform, but lowered and stiffened for improved handling), a 31mm stabilizer bar, and a 4.5 inch aluminum driveshaft, added to the 2002 Ford F150 Lightning's racetrack mystique.

However, it was the engine that really made the difference for buyers and fans of this powerhouse pickup.  The 2002 Lightning had a 5.4 liter supercharged Triton V8 under the hood, which putting out 380 horsepower and 450 ft/lbf of torque.  This tremendous engine power, combined with the suspension and chassis modifications, made the SVT Lightning one of the few trucks on the market with the acceleration and handling of a true sportscar.

Despite the SVT Lightning's cult following, production runs remained low.  You'll be lucky to find one of these little beauties on the resale market!
