This 2019 Ford F-150 XL Supercharged Pickup Is A Lightning Reincarnation

One of the most iconic performance vehicles that Ford ever produced was the Lightning pickup. In its last generations, the Ford F-150 Lightning had a supercharged V-8 engine and impressive performance that Ford fans still love to this day. It’s been many years since Ford produced a factory Lightning pickup, but that hasn’t stopped dealers like Montrose Ford of Fairlawn in Akron, Ohio, from reincarnating the Lightning pickup. This 2019 Ford F-150 XL supercharged pickup is as close as you can get to a brand-new SVT Lightning today.

The truck started your basic two-wheel drive, single cab, bench seat F-150 XL. The stock 5.0-liter V-8 engine had a Roush supercharger bolted to it, pushing the output to 650 horsepower. Other than that Roush supercharger, the truck also has a sport handling suspension system, a 10-speed automatic transmission, stainless side exit exhaust, and 22-inch wheels.

Those custom wheels look a lot like what Ford used on the actual SVT Lightning in its day. The wheels are shod with performance tires to help the truck get a grip with so much horsepower. Other than the supercharger, wheels, and special exhaust system, the truck is essentially a bare-bones F-150.

It has a cloth bench seat with the fold-down console, AC, power windows, power locks, and body-color front and rear bumpers, and Sync is integrated. Everything else is stock, and the 2019 Ford F-150 XL supercharged pickup is available right now on eBay. The price is listed on eBay at $46,750. The window sticker lists the truck at $34,680 before the add ons. That means the truck has about $12,000 in modifications added. It’s also worth noting that the dealer website calls the truck a 2019 Roush F-150 Lightning, and it doesn’t appear to be an actual Roush vehicle, it’s an F-150 with a Roush supercharger added by the dealership as far as we can tell.

    Nice to see a resonable price for performance!
    I hope they do something similar whne the 2021 model comes out.

    Sport grill is a nice addition as well, very annoying to me that they only offer that on crew cabs. Would love an extended cab in sport trim.

    This package is serious business, I don’t know they are calling it a Roush F150 Lightning? Just because they used his supercharger?? Nope. I have a friend who put a supercharged model on the 2019 F150 regular can & add all wheel drive the truck runs high 8s in the quarter mile. It’s not to be taken lightly at ALL

    I am currently the proud owner of a pristine 2004 Ford SVT Lightning which I purchased a few years ago. I paid around $18k for it which I feel was a fair price considering it had approximately 65,000 miles on it. I have since taken it to the next level with numerous high performance and aesthetic modifications totaling around $17k & it is one bad ass truck. If a dealer wants to take a relatively stock new Ford F150, then bolt on a few aftermarket goodies & put a ridiculously high price tag on it that’s fine. DON’T insult me by calling it a ‘Lightning’. It infuriates me to know that dealerships are trying to make a ‘silk purse out of a sow’s ear’ but if consumers are stupid enough to buy it then have at it. Just do me a huge favor. Please don’t show up at a car/truck show where I’m at with your new ‘Lightning’ cause it’s not!
