In 2003 the Ford Lightning saw multiple improvements in the design of the interior including a perforated leather wrapped steering wheel,
thicker carpet and floor mats borrowed from the Lincoln Navigator, chrome plated inner door handles and the 6 disc CD changer became an in dash

was introduced in 2003 which was more lightweight than the design it replaced, and a few tweaks were made to the computer so that the Lightning
could retain it's status as a low emissions vehicle in 2003.
The second generation Lightning was initially offered in just Bright Red, Black, and White paint colors. The 2000 Model Year brought the addition of the Silver color to the lineup. In 2002, True Blue, a very dark blue, was offered, but replaced with a lighter Sonic Blue in 2003. The 2003 Model Year also saw the introduction of the Dark Shadow Grey color.
