Ford F-150 2003 crew cab
Trim Shown: SuperCrew Cab
While no longer a standout among full-sized pickups, the F-150 still offers some basic strengths, including a roomy cab and above-average reliability. The optional 5.4-liter V8 provides plenty of power, but the four-speed automatic doesn't always shift smoothly. The ride is stiff and jiggly. Handling is a bit ponderous but secure. A good deal of wind and road noise enters the cabin. Braking is marginal, and no full-time 4WD system is offered. The F-150's poor performance in an offset-crash test prevents us from recommending this otherwise competent truck. A completely redesigned F-150 debuts this summer.
