2001 Ford F-150 Overview

The 2001 Ford F-150 lost its perch atop the US market for the first time in several years. Were newer Ford models, like the Super-Duty 250 and 350 series, fragmenting its core market segment? Or was the SUV juggernaut too powerful for this popular pickup to resist?

In any case, the 2001 Ford F150 still sold hundreds of thousands of trucks to satisfied buyers. As always, the 2001 F150 offered a wide selection of models and options: trims available were XL, XLT, and Lariat; cab configurations included standard 2-door and 4-door models, as well as the extended-cab supercab, in stepside and styleside; long-bed and short-bed versions were available; and 4WD choices appealed to the off-road set.

The 2001 F-150 also won hearts with its choice of powerhouse fuel-injected overhead-cam engines, a 4.2 liter Essex V6 and a Triton V8 in 4.6 liter and 5.4 liter; the 2001 Ford SVT Lightning sport pickup, based on the F-150, came with a supercharged 5.4 liter Triton V8 clocked up to an impressive 380 horsepower.
