16. Ford F-150 Lightning
In 1999 with the new, totally redesigned generation of F-150 trucks came the new Lightning. This time it was much meaner and aggressive looking as well with much more firepower. Ford installed its 5.4-liter V8 with a supercharger, which was good for 360 HP at first and 380 HP later. This was much more than the previous model.
Better still, it was much more than any truck on the market at that moment. And that made the performance numbers so sublime. In fact, the Lightning could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in five seconds and top 140 mph. Those figures were more like the Porsche 911 of the period rather than a regular pickup truck that could tow things like the other F-150s.
