Ford Lightning Specs (99-04) - Ford Lightning Specs (99-04)

The 2nd generation Ford SVT Lightning was released in 1999 and brought the iconic SVT styling to the F150 platform. With new body parts and a beefed up suspension, the new supercharged 5.4L V8 truck was an immediate hit. Available only as a regular cab, step side truck, the SVT Lightning was the world's fastest production truck of its time and was priced under $30,000. Designed by Roush and the SVT team, the new 5.4L got forged rods, lower compression pistons, and a forged crankshaft to handle the new Eaten supercharger. Check out our joining article going over the Lightning generations as a whole!
