2000 Ford F-150 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview
America’s favorite truck adds several comfort and convenience features for 2000 and rolls out a new four-door crew-cab body style as an early 2001 model.

Called the F-150 SuperCrew, the new crew cab (pictured above) has four conventional doors that are hinged in front; this is the first half-ton full-size pickup to come with that feature. The SuperCrew has a larger passenger compartment than the F-150 SuperCab models (extended cab), and the cargo bed shrinks from 6.5 to 5.5 feet.

A limited-edition Harley-Davidson model goes on sale this spring as the first product jointly developed by Ford and the famous motorcycle company. The Harley F-150 SuperCab is all black on the outside, with orange pinstriping and chrome trim. It comes with a black leather interior, 5.4-liter V-8 engine and 20-inch-diameter wheels and tires.

Ford has dropped the light-duty F-250 model name but now offers similar payload capabilities as options on the F-150. Ford’s heavy-duty pickups are listed as separate models under the F-Series Super Duty.

Exterior
Ford blends traditional truck styling cues such as a bold grille with rounded body panels in the F-150, which comes in four sizes (excluding the 2001 SuperCrew). Both the regular-cab models and SuperCabs come with a choice of 6.5- or 8-foot cargo beds. The short bed is available with flared fenders that Ford calls Flareside on regular cabs and SuperCabs.

SuperCabs have narrow rear doors on both sides that are hinged at the rear and cannot be opened unless the front doors are opened first.

Interior
In a first for pickup trucks, power adjustable accelerator and brake pedals are a new option on XLT models and standard on Lariat models with automatic transmission. A dashboard switch allows you to move the pedals over a 3-inch range to help drivers find a more comfortable position behind the wheel.

Both regular-cab models and SuperCabs come with a three-place bench seat or two front buckets. SuperCabs add a three-place, folding rear seat that is split 60/40 and is now reclined 18 degrees for more comfort.

Under the Hood
Ford boasts that the F-150’s base engine, a 4.2-liter V-6, is the most powerful V-6 in its class with 205 horsepower. Most buyers, however, choose one of the V-8s, which are smoother, quieter and more potent. V-8 choices are a 220-horsepower 4.6-liter or a 260-horsepower 5.4-liter.

Four-wheel-drive models come with a standard floor-mounted transfer-case lever that allows shifting in or out of 4WD High on the move. An electrically engaged transfer case operated by a dashboard switch is optional.

Rear-wheel antilock brakes are standard on base Work and XL models. A four-wheel antilock system is standard on XLTs and Lariats and optional on the others.

Performance
General Motors, Dodge and Toyota are all trying to catch the F-150 — the perennial sales leader — but Ford finds new ways to keep its full-size pickup at the front of the herd. The F-150 at least matches its rivals in the work categories and exceeds them in the convenience and comfort areas with features such the adjustable pedals and four-door SuperCrew.

If you are shopping for a full-size pickup, the F-150 is a good starting point.

Great vehicle

by SusieQ from Titusville, Fl on June 25, 2020

I bought a 2000 F-150 Harley Davidson used 10 years ago. I now have 198,000 miles on it and plan on getting another 100,000 out of it. I have done very little to it other than regular maintenance. I ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
