Advice: do your research, you can find good deals, I bought mine below invoice.awesome.....380 horses, 450lbs. of torque.....hold on when you floor it, cause you will need something to grab hold of.Simply awesome.
Pros: Incredible performance.
Cons: Some dealers who are asking $5,000 over MSRP.
Advice: Shop around for an SVT dealer who will sell for MSRP or below.With a 0-60 time in the 5+ second range and 1/4 mile times in the 13+ second range for the latest models, this SVT F-150 Lightning is the fastest, quickest and best handling pickup truck in the world. In fact, it's quicker than almost any car you can buy for under $100,000, while at the same time offering a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and carrying over 1,000 pounds of you-name-it in the bed. It's also very comfortable and I get compliments on its looks every day. Great road vehicle. I've owned my '99 Lightning for four years and have had absolutly no problems. I love it and would buy another one without hesitation! I have as much fun driving it as I do riding my Harley and can recommend it without reservation to anyone who wants to become addicted to the supercharged power of this hotrod pickup.
