Cant wait for this truck!!! Does anyone have any
pricing yet?? I will pass on the info I've been
told by a Ford Rep.(hopefully accurate)!! Being
built at Kansas city plant which has been converted
and being tested...truck will be avail. for
Jan.2nd delivery with order dates being taken in
the fall most likely oct-nov. This was the latest
update showing in his computer. ALSO a press
release was done on Aug. 25th for "preliminary
specifications" on the supercrew ... this release
is just for dimensions basically.

What size is the bed? This truck could prove worthy for the shingling-only jobs of my company. All I need on those jobs is an air compressor,tools and two gas cans in the back. But...I need at least four guys as well so this is interesting......More info please!

A few answers... The truck's bed is 5 1/2 feet which compared to an F-150 supercab SB is only I believe 1 foot shorter!!
Whats special to ME about this truck is it fits my needs . I like the idea of being able to have 4 adults sit w/some comfort and yet the ability of loading a small bed (shrubs, plants, trash etc.) I also snowmobile and like the idea of putting my bags in the back seat and my gas tanks (and prob. all my friends tanks) in the bed while hauling the trailer. I LOVE the look of the F-150 and when I saw pictures of the new F-150 Supercrew w/its 4 doors it looked awesome!!! Also in my opinion I think it might be structurally a little safer for occupants because of the "B" pillar and roof reinforcement ...head rest help too!!! These are only my thoughts and welcome others!! Now if I could only find out how much this truck will cost me!! Later!

Has anyone seen a picture of the F150 SC online. Checked out link on response #4, no picture, just specs.

It's not too difficult to imagine what it will look like. Just picture an Expedition with a 5.5 foot bed after the passenger doors. Sorry, I know this is no help!

I thought it was an F-150 front not an Expedition?

I was able to find some info/pictures of the new 2001 supercrew at
www.blueovalnews.com/supercrew_preliminary.htm and http://www.auto.com/99autoshow/art/index.htm. There is also an article in the Dec. issue of TruckTrend about this and other new crew cabs (Nissan and Dodge.) I can't give any concrete price information as I ordered mine without being given a firm price - but all indications are that the supercrew will cost an additional $2000 over the extended cab version. I was able to get the dealer to commit to $100 over the dealer's invoice. If anyone is thinking about placing an early order, I would suggest a similar agreement (in writing) because high initial demand may tempt some dealers into trying to make a higher profit than usually achieved on other vehicles. (as of now, there is no substitute from GM and Dodge Quad/Nissan Frontier are quite a bit smaller)Additionally, there are some new options such as a sunroof and power adjustable foot pedals, neither of which I saw necessary. (If you do opt for the sunroof, you'll have to do without the overhead console containing compass/temp, sunglass holder, garage door opener, etc.)There is also no "off-road" package, although you can get everything the off-road package contains (17 inch alloys, skid-plates, 3.55 limited slip, etc) by purchasing these options separately. One other change I might mention is that the 6-disc cd changer is located behind the rear seat, not in the console between the captains chairs (if you opt for them). Not a really big deal, might allow more storage and better security but not as easy to change discs when doing 70 down the highway.
#10 of 1265 tried to order one

Went to dealer to order f150 sc but they said they can't order until pricing comes in. Said that they will only get one at the dealership for the whole year and they will sell it for sticker price. Another Dealership said they will order me one but will not talk price as related to invoice. I wonder if it's going to be hard to buy one of these for a decent price? I want to buy a chesnut LARIOT 4x4 with leather captains chairs, tow package, 5.4l engine limited slip, skid plates, automatic with shift on fly 4 w drive. Have not decided on moon roof. I would get the moon roof for sure if I didn't have to loose the temp gauge and compass. If anyone else has had success ordering one of these trucks please give details including price.
