    Sorry Doug. You drank the kool aid. as far as powering your house is not as simple as to driving your Ford into the garage and plugging it it. Trucks are DC homes are AC. An inverter and isolation switch are necessary. Charging... Tesla superchargers provide 47kw until the 90% level, Ford drops to 11% at 80% You touched on versatility of having usable power at thejob site, but that eats KW too. Tesl truck will have a compressor, not only for ride height, but for powering air tools. There are many more that could be id'd but study the real differences spec to spec, nd you will put aside the kool aid.

    Ford themselves may believe they are able to convince people to go electric with their trucks, but I don’t know if dealers will be incentivized enough to push them. Current dealers make a lot of money on service after purchase and part of the benefits being pushed currently is how little regular maintenance electric vehicles need. So if you are a dealer, what benefit is it to you to push people to buy the lightning when the gas truck is $5000 cheaper in comparison (making it easier to sell) and will almost guarantee a continual source of income with regular oil changes and whatnot. I love the truck but I haven’t heard many people talk about this

    I think your absolutely correct about towing range. Right now, 1/2 - 3/4 ton electric pick-ups are not suitable for towing long range. As a utility truck, I think Ford checked all the boxes. I am ready to test drive one.

    I can’t help but think what parts BEV pickups DON’T have. Catalytic converters, driveshafts, rear ends, transfer cases, belts, engine and transmission sensors, etc. Leadership of these parts supplier need to be pivoting ASAP. Except for replacement parts their will be no market in the future. As a BEV owner all can this: once you try a great BEV you will never go back to a fossil fueled vehicle again.

    Tesla ugly truck you could make with plywood and a Skill saw. Now tesla has REAL competition so how will their dated unchanged looking cars even hope to compete? I'm not a Ford guy but it's far better than a Tesla fold and glue shaped body of their truck. I've seen better Origami than Tesla.

    FORD WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET ENOUGH BATTERIES AND CAN ONLY MAKE 50K MACHE ES THIS YEAR. HOW MANY F150S DO YOU THINK THEY CAN MAKE WHICH USES 2X THE BATTERIES IN IT. TESLA WITH ITS BATTERY SUPPLY WILL BE ABLE TO SELL 1 MILLION WHILE FORD CAN ONLY MAKE 50K-100K IF THEY ARE LUCKY.

    TESLAS ALL HAVE FRONT TRUNKS. TESLA CAN SEND POWER BACK WITH UPDATES PROBABLY IN NEW VEHICLES COMING OUT IN THE FUTURE. PROBABLY THE CYBERTRUCK. IT ALSO HAS INVERTERS ANYWAY.

  • Ari P

    THE 70K CYBERTRUCK ALSO COMES WITH OVER 500 MILES OF RANGE SO TOWING STILL LEAVES YOU 250 MILES OR MORE AND THE NEW LEAKS SHOW OVER 600 MILES.

    Ari P

    DOUG GET YOUR INFORMATION STRAIGHT. THE 50K DUAL MOTOR CYBERTRUCK WILL BE COMING OUT WITH THE TRI MOTOR. IT IS THE 40K THAT WILL BE A LITTLE LATER, BUT PROBABLY AROUND WHEN THE FORD COMES OUT ANYWAY WHICH IS NOT UNTIL NEXT YEAR. THE CYBERTRUCK ALSO COMES WITH INCLUDED AIR SUSPENSION WHICH THE FORD DOES NOT WHICH GIVES BETTER HANDLING AND WEIGHT CONTROL.

    Doug is correct, this is the best utilitarian & most affordable EV truck. Will probably b my choice of EV truck. My question is, how will it’s AWD features perform off road or in mid to high snow depths vs a gasoline F150 4wd features??? Doug, maybe u can explain that on ur next update on the Lightning!!!???

    This and the Honda e are the only EVs I think are good ideas. The Honda cuz it just fits city life and it’s a cool design. This because it looks well thought out. Hummer and Cybertruck are garbage. This F150 seems ok for a local fleet truck. I wouldn’t want it if I hauled stuff, or drive a lot of miles.

    I can't speak for others, but as an original Lightning truck owner I wonder why FORD would use an ICONIC name plate, Lightning, on what appears to be a future standard production truck offering. Makes me wonder if they could revive and change other name plates such as Thurnderbolt for a performance/Limited truck package Scheme. Over the years performance enthusiasts got tired of waiting for a V8 ranger, a Supercharged Adrenalin and other possible hints that Ford made during annual car shows. The loss of variety will eventaully make potential customers look else where.

  • Chiefs Fan #1

    Never thought about an EV until now. I’m a rancher and the tax incentives are impressive. I would also go for the cheaper model because I do not care at all about the touchscreen or any of the upgrades. But the amount of money I would save in fuel would be impressive. Obviously I would not use it to haul cattle, but I will use my super duty for that. This truck would be my every day workhorse since in reality I only haul cattle 15 to 20 times a year. The only thing that could make it better is if it is able to handle a gooseneck/hay spear.

    Towing and charging shouldn't be a huge issue for most people - the majority of truck owners will be driving in urban or suburna settings - definitely less than 300 miles a day! This is a great choice for small businesses and tradespeople who need to regularly haul goods. Also remember that electric cars are cheaper to operate and maintain than comparably priced gas cars.

    waste of money.. I can see having an electric car for everyday go to work and in town running around but a pickup is expected to tow, be loaded and have range for everyday work.. imagine what the tow range will be when towing a 8000 pound RV trailer..100 miles? honestly stupid..I live in a rural farming state where pretty much EVERYONE has a pickup.. nobody will buy this

    • Man Cave Hobbies
      Man Cave Hobbies

      @Dale K. true but honestly, even if we lived in a fantasy Marvel universe where Iron man developed fusion energy, an electric pickup is just a waste of money. Now IF they would pop their heads out, develop a turbo diesel 6 cylinder 1500/2500 with good down low torque (400+) hybrid that has a range of 100 miles on electricity for everyday go to work travel... I'd buy that.

    As a truck guy, this is hugely critical to the truck community. The guys like me who use their trucks as trucks were waiting to see when this would show up: a reasonably priced truck (compared to modern insane truck prices), that has decent range, and functional true truck guy features. It's also very important that it's Ford who did it first with the F-150. As much as I prefer Chevy, The F-150 is the top seller in every category around. If this succeeds, it will permanently change the market and customer perception. Go get 'em Ford!

  • MrGonzonator

    Wrong. I'm after a base Cybertruck, not for lifestyle but for longevity. A stainless steel vehicle that can take the knocks and won't dent or scratch... A long range EV that can seat 6 adults... The look of the thing is besides the point: it's a utilitarian vehicle that will stand the test of time. That and the base model won't strip out the interior like the F150 will.

    I love that Doug is creaming his dad denims over features that didn't matter at all when it came to the Tesla Cybertruck. "The Lightning has SERIOUS benefits...only a couple minor drawbacks" "The Cybertruck is a toy for rich people." "The Lightning is a carefully thought out truck." "The frunk is an amazing idea where you don't have to have your stuff exposed to vandalism or theft!" I'm sorry - what? This moron. If you don't realize an EV F150 that has the mile range of a Hyundai Elantra isn't a 'lifestyle' product, idk what to tell you dude. Your theory on this "actual-truck-people" market Ford is supposedly going after makes zero sense. You have no idea what you're talking about. Ford, Tesla, and Rivian are all going after the 'lifestyle' truck people because they know that makes up over 90% of truck owners in America. You're just easily duped by marketing. The Lightning (and the Cybertruck for that matter) should only be used by people who never use their trucks for truck things and who never take their truck to the middle of nowhere. The EV game is about 2 things: RANGE(how good of a battery can you build) AND CHARGING INFRASTRUCTURE. The current battery capabilities of EVs on trucks just ISN'T PRACTICAL, but especially on the Lightning. Ford entered a game they suck at. Either 1. to position their brand or 2. because they are afraid of the Cybertruck. Yours truly, Cybertruck Cuck.

    Ford will find long-term success with this truck, but I worry that the majority of F-150 customers will reject it for the foreseeable future. Farmers love their diesel. As of now, the sentiment of rural America is very much anti-EV. Although the Lightning seems that it will be superior by nearly every metric, convincing generations of diesel truck owners to switch to an EV (something they likely see as the antithesis to their identity) will be a serious hurdle. Hopefully I am wrong.

    I promise every pool guy in America is looking at this truck. 200 mile daily routes going from $27 in gas to $6 in electricity. It adds up, and any reasonable business owner is going to spreadsheet the costs and come to the same decision I did. This just makes financial sense.

    You’d think that middle America may not be interested but you should see the HUGE amounts of wind farms they have in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas now (I did after chasing tornadoes in all those states) ….and they building more of them AND solar farms. Those farmers aren’t so poor anymore seeing how much luxury trucks are out there. And they usually don’t own just one. Having ONE F-150 electric plus a gas-powered (for that hauling stuff or long trips) will be common.

    300 mile range is including weight in the truck. Marques Brownlee did the math in his test and it might do 450 miles with no added weight!

    Pickup trucks were invented to tow heavy loads and carry stuff. If we can agree to this, then Ford just committed the biggest blunder since it was founded. The concept of Ford Lightning using 200 year old battery chemistry is beyond ridiculous unless Ford engineers know something the rest of the world doesn't. A trailer carrying 10,000 lbs will drain that battery like a six-pack at a 4th of July BBQ.

    The biggest problem is the lackluster ranger compared to a car. Furthermore, the lack of universal charging stations and so very few charging stations is going to be complicated on long-halls or cross country. (Hopefully, it changes in the near future with). It would have been great if the truck could run for 450+miles and 300 miles with max towing weight. All in all, I do think its a step in the right direction specifically with booming gas prices.

    what are the odds of someone actually wanting to purchase the 'commercial' striped down version for $39,999 ? Everybody wants this and that upgrade or even whole upgrade packages. These trucks will be $50k to $60k out the door (minus $7500 government rebate)
