The Worlds *Most* POWERFUL Truck: The F-150 Lightning

  • Published on May 10, 2022
  • Ford has taken Electric Vehicles to the next level. Lets hope everyone else can keep up. The new F-150 lightning can power an average home in the USA for THREE WHOLE DAYS. The massive battery pack and electric motors are a beast off road, can tow up to 10,000lbs, while still coming home at night to keep your entire house safe from power outages. Mind blowing. Nice work Ford!

    So you've officially become the brand ambassador of electric trucks.

    I appreciate that the Ford looks mostly like a normal truck, there are already plenty of spaceship-looking EVs for people who want that style. I hope they are reliable, because an electric pickup should be super useful. Imagine being able to back into your garage without poisoning yourself, or having instant cabin heat in the early morning without making engine noise or stink.

    If you had told me 5 years ago that Ford would be making such smart decisions and helping to pave the way for the future of EV, I would have laughed in your face. The smartest thing they have done was to make it just look like a traditional pickup truck. If they drop the same power plant into a Ranger Lightning, it might just outsell the Tacoma in the mid-sized category.

    I really appreciate a company when they give you /exclusive/ access to their product but don't forbid you from mentioning their competitors. This is the way! Great video Zack!

    My only concern with Rivian is longevity and part availability, Ford has been here for a very long time and will be here for even longer so I know parts will be available and this truck will just get better and better each year. Tesla has really improved and made a good name for themselves, I hope they make a work truck version of the cybertruck but it will be great I believe.

    I guess I'll be waiting a year or two to see how it does as far as maintenance and reliability and how well Ford treats it's lightning owners. I like what I've seen here, now I just need the rest and I'll buy it.

    The home backup battery feature alone makes this extremely competitive against other offerings. Starting at 40k for the pro model that can do all of that and not including tax incentives, it looks promising.

    Like you said, I think THIS truck is a game changer for electric vehicles! It serves an already well establish market segment, and can move many people over to electric with ease. The range, carrying capacity, and towing package are excellent. (RANGE!!!!) The fact that in addition to the large center screen (on the higher trim models), they still also kept all the physical buttons everywhere else that you'd expect is top notch understanding of their buyers! NO ONE wants to have to navigate through on-screen tabs and menus to accomplish something that used to be a no-look single button push!!! (glaring at Tesla) The front trunk storage is awesome! (I wonder if someone will make front trunk tool bins that replace bed tool boxes?) The outlets all around the vehicle, including 240v in the bed are sweet, and the ability to send power back to the home during an outage via the charging cable with some extra hardware installed in the home is a major leap forward!!! Oh, and the charging rate that this truck is capable of is incredible, and nicely future proofed since it exceeds what most charging stations currently offer. Lastly, the Ford Charge Station Pro... WOW, 80 AMPs... (needing a 100 AMP circuit from the panel) that just makes me giddy. (100 AMPs is my whole service panel currently.)

    I’ve always been interested in an F-150. The gas mileage of a truck was always a deterrent to me. This electric pick up will be a game changer to many people who feel the same way I do.

    A fun review as usual. Some mistakes and mistaken opinions to consider.

    Great video and editing, appreciate the educational aspect of your videos. As for the truck, Ford nailed it, I especially like the ability to act as a backup power source, as you noted I hope Rivian follows suit on that feature. Nothing against Tesla, but the playing field is now beginning to get serious, over the next 3-5 years we will actually see what Tesla is made of when faced with serious competition. They have a head start having enjoyed the EV space unchallenged for several years, if Musk thought it was tough getting his manufacturing facilities up and running, he is about to really experience what tough is when faced with formidable competition.

    As a current 2018 F150 owner, this is truly my dream truck. I love my 3.5L EcoBoost, but I’d trade it in a heartbeat.

    I would love to have one of these trucks. It would definitely been nice if Ford would have made an electric lift system to give it a three or four inch lift on command. That would have blown Rivian and Tesla right out of the water. I kind of cringed when the skid plates were hitting those rocks.

    I was sceptical about electric vehicles but you have put my mind at ease. I shall end up owning one in the future for sure. Thank you, Zack.

    I think there is alot of value in the base model f150 lightning. I wish we knew when the cyber truck will be delivering because I love that too but its anyones guess when that will happen

    My Favorite is your Electric Hummer, then comes the F150 Lightning - man, I had no idea the F150L existed. You are absolutely right this is a GAME CHANGER. I'm heading over to the Ford site to price one for myself.

    This is seriously cool, looks like Ford made this thing to be called "cool" by all the ev and truck fans out there

    I live in North Carolina, and right near the water so hurricanes ruin my home at least once a year. This truck would be a game changer knowing I could pair it with my generator and power my house for quite a long time when the power goes out from Hurricane (Insert name here) ruining the grid. Love it. Great review.
