Adding a four-door cab configuration to their popular half-ton pickup truck line-up in 2001, Ford created the F-150 SuperCrew. Featuring a truck body style previously reserved for Ford’s heavier duty pickups, the four-door crew cab style F-150 SuperCrew provided a refreshing mix of light-duty capability and comfort for up to six occupants. At the rear portion of the 225.9-inch long pickup truck, a 5.7-foot bed box provides ample space for hauling Presented with rear-wheel as well as four-wheel drivetrains, the 2001 Ford F-150 SuperCrew was offered with a choice of two Triton eight-cylinder engines. The base powerplant for the truck is derived from a 4.6-liter V-8 producing 231 horsepower and 293 pound-feet of torque.
Optional with the 2001 F-150 SuperCrew was a 260-horsepower 5.4-liter V-8 engine. Both engines are mated with four-speed automatic transmissions featuring an overdrive gear. The 2001 model year Ford F-150 SuperCrew was introduced with four well-equipped trim levels. Standard on the entry-level XLT trim included aluminum wheels, cruise control, four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock braking system and CD player. Leather seating and 17-inch chrome wheels were included on the F-150 Super Crew Lariat while the King Ranch offered illuminated running boards as well as a rear seat center armrest.
Serving as the top-trimmed version of the 2001 Ford F-150 SuperCrew was the Harley-Davidson Edition. Only available as a rear-wheel drive model with a standard 5.4-liter engine, the F-150 SuperCrew Harley-Davidson Edition was accented with exclusive badging along with 20-inch wheels and a limited-slip differential. Following the 2001 launch of the F-150 SuperCrew model, the body style has remained part of the Ford half-ton truck line-up.
