This is True!!!

Ford SVT Lightning Isn't Dead Yet

At SEMA 2004, the writers of Pickuptruck.com sat down for a luncheon with John Coletti , Ford's director of Special Vehicle Teams (SVT) and asked him about the demise of our beloved Lightning.

Coletti said some media and enthusiasts have interpreted the group's decision to postpone work on the next-generation truck as meaning the program is cancelled.

"That's simply not true," said Coletti, who spoke with PickupTruck.com at the Innovations Day luncheon, which kicked off Ford's participation in the 2004 SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Nov. 1.

Officials said that switching to next-generation platforms of the F-150 and Mustang hit too close together for engineering to proceed at a timely pace on both vehicles. Also, the plants where the vehicles are to be assembled have changed and acclimating the procedures and parts to a new workforce would have stretched the SVT team too thin.
