With the onslaught of SUVs and Ford's own raft of personal use trucks like the Harley Davidson F-150, it's refreshing to know that the company hasn't forgotten about trucks as work vehicles.
The new 2001-model Ford F-150 SuperCrew adds a new dimension to work- and personal-use trucks. When it debuted last year, it was the only under-8,500-lb. gross vehicle weight (GVW) truck in its class with four full-size doors and the largest rear seating. SuperCrew is designed for buyers who need all the capability of a tough work truck along with passenger-carrying capacity and increased ease of entry and exit. Its 5-1/2 -foot box and optional Bed Extender - which creates a total of seven feet of cargo carrying capacity - ensures owners can put it to work like any other Ford pickup.
