    As an electric car nerd, I've always looked at the EV marketplace as the best place for companies to switch up how we think about cars. This Ford F-150 is the first of all of these to make me go, "huh. Maybe there is a little something to how things have been done." And to me, it looks like the single most compelling EV option for anyone and everyone that *doesn't* care about EVs. Which, I should add, is the only way mass adoption is ever going to become a reality as fast as we need it to be. Great coverage, Marques.

      @Neojhun brainwashed? Really? Yet you push for EV? Thats fucking rich. Hydrogen is a pipedream now. They can invest more tech into it considering how great its potential is. Unlimited fuel and the biproduct is water. Something to work towards. Natural gas and hybrid are the only options right now. Full electric is not. Absolutely no studies or research shows that there are enough resources to do full electric worldwide. Yet ironicay the same asshoels that's say "trust the science" are going for ev. It's a money grab for billionaires and corporations that's don't give a fuck about anyone or anything besides profit. You hitch your wagon to it and think it will impact the environment. Guess what. They still need to oil to make plastic and "green" energy can't support even 10% of the population. All of which are made by plastics and fiber glass. Costs more to make and dispose of than using gas. Do some research. Stop listening to Bill nye as your source of science.

      @Neojhun The vast majority of people that own real trucks never even use the bed to move cargo, like. I said you live in a twat state obviously, if you don't look closer and you'll see trucks hauling stuff everyday.

      @Neojhun You must live in a state like California, I live in the Midwest, I don't know a single person who owns a truck to put a dresser in the back. We all use it to tow boats, trailers, campers, snowmobiles, or a lot of other things. Are you suggesting Ford, Chevrolet, and Dodge all make 3 separate levels of trucks for fun?

    Good luck charging CCS in the USA! I’m in N. California I just had 3 failures at Electrify America where only 2 of the measly 4 chargers were working which is a daily crap shoot . Don’t believe me , download the App and check your local stations. Better not think your road trip will be smooth or without annoying delay! Don’t even try chargepoint , or EVgo they are a worse joke than EA. Some are Nice vehicles but with a miserably incompetent charging infrastructure!! Don’t walk away run! Go ahead buy a non Tesla and you will regret it. I know I do ! 51k miles driven and I give up. Tesla on order

      @Elblancochingon but the truck is a power bank it stores power, it has the capabilities to give energy when there is no electricity a power bank is capable of storing energy and that energy stays there until you want to use it and come outside looking into your house is the reason why they don't even make sense so if you hook the thing to your house the power your house but your house already have electricity it made

    • Elblancochingon
      Elblancochingon Month ago

      @Clarence Steward we once had an ice storm in west ky and were without power for nearly a month...how long was New Orleans without power after hurricane Katrina and how long will parts of Florida be without power after Ian? Things can't always magically be repaired/rebuilt in a a day or 2 you know....not to mention rolling black outs and wildfires like California's. Good luck with your truck powering your house for a week...even 1 day and night for that matter. Enjoy the electric "kool-aid "....I wish you luck!

    • Clarence Steward
      Clarence Steward Month ago

      @Elblancochingon first of all my friends why would you even be watching videos of electrical trucks failures and not watching the truck that you want to purchase. Isn't that the American way when it comes to buying a truck you go and watch that truck and it's durability and capabilities and its power structure. And you do realize that they are still working on tractor trailers that can drive themselves to destinations to deliver commodities. So why would you second guess the engineering of this truck from other trucks. People who buy trucks know that a truck is going to have pros and con. Have you looked at how many outlets are on this truck. With that many outlets this truck has got to be a very powerful source. This tells me that Ford felt very confident about this truck because if four did not feel very confident about this truck they wouldn't give you all of those outlets. Everybody and their mama know that I'm telling you the truth they would not give you so many outlets on that truck if it was a weak power source. Like my dude said in the video it is the biggest power bank ever. And I'm pretty sure Ford has a unit that hooks to your house that allows this truck to use a certain amount of electricity to light up your house for a pretty long time because of managing electricity I mean giving you enough time for the power company to fix your power lines and have your power back on. A power company has to have your lights back on as quickly as possible it's not like you're going to be sitting there one til four months with no electricity. Quickly turn your electricity back on you will have power anyways

      2. I actually have neighbors that have solar panels running to batteries that power their home partially and prioritize charge for their one EV. Not something I’d do, but they’re not burning coal so it’s possible to do

      Don’t get me started on hauling tools in the back of my truck I have a Tacoma and even though the bed has a lock and I have a cover on it I still would stash my tools away in a water proof giant box which I also lock as well if I had the f150 lighting I wouldn’t have to worry about locking my tools away nor having to leave my tools behind when I need to haul stuff in the bed of my truck but I don’t have the room cause of the giant water proof container my tools would be in

      @TheMadmax0609 I see your point, where I hunt and sometimes camp isn’t 80 miles onto the woods but it’s a public access area in a town of around 200 people 80 miles from me, I don’t think an EV has ever gone there 😂 no charging station on the way and typically when I go I bring a trailer with a fourwheeler on it. A big advantage I see to EVs and specific task would be no noise, because starting my v8 truck with no muffler at 4am definitely disturbs some wildlife lol

    • TheMadmax0609
      TheMadmax0609 5 months ago

      @The General lots of people go "camping" in areas where there is electricity, albeit not true camping in my opinion.
      There are tons of videos with people who have Teslas and take them into the woods to go camping overnight. If you're driving 80 miles literally into the woods, then have another 80 miles before you get out of the woods then I would stick to gasoline. Some people have developed solar chargers while their cars are parked in the woods which give them about 15 extra miles of range a day using the Sun. It's crazy to think about.. but once an easily portable charging system is developed using the sun to gain 20 or 30 mi extra a day, electric cars will do to internal combustion what internal combustion did to the horse and carriage in the early 1900s.
      I mean, I would camp out in the woods for a week or two if there was a device plugged into my F-150 lightning that captured the sun's rays and kept the battery topped off. 👍

    Compared to Ford's past work on the Ford Fusion the body lines on this thing are insanely straight, it looks very well built like they actually took time on R&D, I wonder how parts availability will be for it should you need to service it/repair it, especially in an insurance claim situation should you get in an accident. That's where a lot of other EVs I've noticed have their downfall.

      @Tech Freak I did a little digging and found out that teslas batteries are more efficient then most of its competitors. The New Silverado that gets a 400 mile range but does not have that drastic of a weight difference to the Ford f150 so they are using a different battery technology which is gaining them the added range but its just estimated so we won't know real world

    • Tech Freak
      Tech Freak 5 months ago

      @MONKEY Creations the problem is that the battery is the heaviest part of an electric vehicle. So sure, they could fit a bigger battery, but with all that extra weight it would require more power, which might negate any extended range. At some point there's diminishing returns.

    Great video! I think the Lightning really caters itself toward the casual and work truck owners especially. Most of the points brought up in this video are really based on using this thing as a daily driver or as a work truck, both incredibly popular and extremely useful applications. However I still think this might scare off some potential owners with range anxiety, especially for towing. It’s kinda why I’m hopeful to see if we get an option to just fill the bed with another large battery as a range extender option. Maybe even removable if you could do it, but given how heavy that would be I’m not sure you’d want people taking it out at home. Given the carrying weight and power of the motors I don’t think it would be a problem to carry that much, and might even make a great shop project for some more technically inclined folks ;)

    Excellent review.
    Ford has done well with this. Its marketing, execution, after sales service, parts availability, and local dealers who have been trained to repair them -> each segment seems to have come together, esp compared to other EV manufacturers. And while its price is still up there, its still acceptable for the value.

    it'd be smart of Ford to make a less powerful, stripped down version one of these that can be used in fleets. That'd hopefully increase the range further.

    I can say that I saw one of these driving around (I live near a ford factory) and I only really realized what it was by the grill and light bar. Or I suppose I should say lack of grill and the added light bar. My only problem with this is the price as with most EVs are just out of reach for most people. As much as I have argued in favor of having an ev, we just couldn’t afford the cost of buying one.

      It's a gimmick. I think its hilarious hearing liberals say stuff like "Every vehicle should be electric". Its NOT like an iPhone. The Lighting with standard battery, advertising 230 miles, while pulling 3,500 lbs... got 70 miles of range. Now imagine if temps were 0 to -20. You'd get 30-40 miles of actual range. As of 2022, we are a long ways away from a REAL electric pickup. LOL!!!!! I'd like one of these tree hugging liberals to explain how that is going to work. Reaaaaady. Set.... Explain.

    As a Ford owner I was super excited when Ford announced about the Lightening. However if you plan on towing a trailer for recreational activities the present model is not the way to go. The F150 Lightening towing a 6000 lbs trailer is only getting about 120 miles on a full charge. For local use, I give it a thumbs up but not for towing. I’m waiting to see if Ford comes out with a F250 model maybe in time for my retirement in 5 yrs. Great video!!!

      Yeah, if I hear "long range" I'm expecting 450-500+ not 300 miles, my 2013 f150 sits at around 490 miles or so when full, not going to be buying something almost 200 miles less per charge/fill up, especially since it will be worse when pulling something.

    Since Ford made it price-competitive with the 4WD ICE version, the only reason to get the ICE one is if you need to tow long distances.

    The Lightning just seems so well designed in so many different aspects. The fact that a company with the footprint of Ford appears to have nailed it this early could be big for EV adoption. Hopefully that spurs some renewable energy investments.

      @C. Auguste Dupin First, I apologize for being kind of a dick. I got heated, and it wasn’t cool. I’m just tired of people parroting the same uninformed info and having to baby step people through understanding it, tbh.
      1) Yes, of course there are other sources of pollution. EVs are not a magic silver bullet that will “save the world”. No one ever claimed that. They are, however, a _part_ of the problem, and thus it is something worth improving on, alongside all of the other major pollution sources (factory farming, mass scale deforestation, industrial manufacturing, etc.)
      2) CO2 is plant food, but the problem is that we are producing more greenhouse gasses than the environment is able to naturally keep up with, leading to a buildup in the atmosphere and negative impacts on our climate. Literally all of the science around this for decades has been very conclusive on what the problems are. Earth’s temperature always fluctuates, but it happens on the scale of thousands or millions of years, not 150. If you’ve ever tried to keep something like tropical fish, you’d understand how sensitive those ecosystems are to sudden changes in temperature, chemical composition, etc. This is all of the basic science behind climate change.
      3) You still have not answered the question about how EVs create *more* pollution. You just keep saying they do without providing any evidence.
      4) Rubber, microchips, etc. are all dependent on fossil fuels for manufacturing. Even still, the total amount of fuel consumption will still be _reduced_ if we can eliminate its use elsewhere. It’s part of a long term process. This stuff doesn’t happen overnight.

    • C. Auguste Dupin
      C. Auguste Dupin 5 months ago

      @Samuel Magliaro smdh EVs only add more pollution and don't solve the issue. Its a fallacy to believe buying an EV is going to save the planet... Plants and the algae that create oxygen that we breathe require carbon dioxide for food. Carbon in the soil promotes life and growth. This stuff is basic science.

    • Samuel Magliaro
      Samuel Magliaro 5 months ago

      @C. Auguste Dupin We’re talking about issues directly related to vehicle propulsion, and you pivot to talking about lead. Of course there are other sources of pollution. How does that make the impact of fossil fuel consumption any less of an issue than it currently is? They’re unrelated domains. You’re massively oversimplifying the problem and dodging the conversation topics we’re discussing.
      And “carbon is good because plant food” is the most lukewarm 75 IQ statement I’ve heard in a long time. This conversation is over. I can’t interface with you. Educate yourself.

    • C. Auguste Dupin
      C. Auguste Dupin 5 months ago

      @Samuel Magliaro what goal post was moved? I just wished people understood. You can't fix the world by destroying. Because it's an oxymoron. The term "go green" is a marketing phrase. EVs are only cool to think about, they have cool features and such but aren't good for the environment more than ice when talking about pollution more than just carbon which is plant food to begin with.

    Loved the video. Ford has a game changer in the Lightning. A good point was brought up that parts are virtually interchangeable between ICE and EV versions which cut costs. As we head into a slowing economy price will be paramount and this is where Tesla, Rivian and even GM will run into issues because their truck versions are IMO way overpriced especially for the market truck makers are trying to target.

    How many full charging cycles can the battery perform before the available travel range is unacceptable? How quickly will the charge capacity depreciate over the life of the battery? And more importantly, how long can the battery hold its charge after a full charge. It would seem that users will be very dependent on centralized electric power providers versus the many competitive gasoline providers that we have now. There may be a net loss of consumer freedom going down this electric path.

Same with his driving "camera at the right A-pillar) shots. A fill light might be useful there.

    For a lot of F-150 owners, I think the Frunk is reason enough to switch, especially if you have a utility box in your bed. I'd guess there are some people who would be able to go from a 6.5 ft bed to the 5.5 ft bed just because they can lose the utility box. I've been wanting to buy a truck, but will probably hold off until I can get the Lightning, specifically because of the Frunk. They'll probably be able to get people who wouldn't buy a truck because of the secure storage issues. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out. I think they're going to steal a good amount of orders from Tesla.

    • spoonless corey

      @Blackstar agree! What is the point of anything less than 6.5ft. This truly is for clueless suburbanites who really only need a sedan, but want to be seen in a pickup. If ford was really trying to sell to truck *users* this thing would look a lot more like an isuzu NPR or kei truck.
      No need for an engine: add more bed
      No Tcase, propshaft, fuel tanks etc. under the bed: lower deck and bedrails while improving access and ergonomics, while keeping the same ride height and capacity.

      @Sakthi Vel Who cares. 99% of F-150s I see are not towing something. Even when they are towing, they're probably going about less than 100 miles with a boat or a trailer. This shouldn't even be a concern. For the small group of people who tow horses (not even sure you can tow horses with an F-150) or a camper, long distance, obviously this truck isn't for you.
