Edmunds.com and Cars.com both offer individuals the ability to search for nearby dealers selling 2001 Ford F-150 models. Users can refine the search criteria to look for specific characteristics of F-150 models that are being sold within a certain distance of one's local area.
As of 2015, at Cars.com, one can search by make, model and year to filter specifically for 2001 Ford F-150's being sold by dealers in one's local area. Some vehicles in the listings come with free Carfax history reports, and for those vehicles that a Carfax report is not readily available, a user does have the option to request one. Users can further filter by additional criteria such as price range, mileage of the vehicle, particular styles and colors of the vehicle, engine details and transmission type.
At Edmunds.com, a user first specifies the type of F-150 desired, including Regular Cab, SuperCrew, SuperCab, or SVT Lightning. The site specifies how many cars are available from dealers in the nearby area, and gives the user the option to view the search results. The list of results shows dealers that are selling the vehicle, along with how far away the dealership is, the vehicle's VIN number and its mileage. A user can also narrow the search results by a price range.
It is also helpful to look up the market value of the 2001 Ford F-150 on a car appraisal site such as KBB to ensure that one gets a fair deal when purchasing the vehicle.
