    I am a truck guy for 50+ years and currently own an F150, spec for spec the cybertruck is far superior to the lightening. The body, the glass, performance and price are superior in every way. There's one exception I see in bed towing, ie. fifth wheel and gooseneck trailers present a problem for the cybertruck, without getting into specially designed or modified trailers, which means added cost. As for conventional rear bumper hitches the Ford loses to the Tesla.
    There's one new aspect to all electric trucks: the transmission of power to powered axles on the trailer, a whole new ballgame.

    Sounds like the 230 mile charge could get 300 miles if your family of 4 weighs half the 1000lbs they test with. That’s pretty awesome.

    Looks good but I will definitely go with the Cybertruck and Tesla's engineering over Ford. Look what Sandy Munro found in the tear down of the Mach e. Besides cybertruck is way cooler.

    Why are companies not making the EV able to attach a charger to it when you drive? Like a little gas or propane power generator that changes the EV so you can drive longer then 400 miles?

    Super cool review/endorsement but reviewers have to stop telling people that you can power your entire house for x number of days during a power outage. Does anyone realize how large a cable has to be to power the entire contents of a standard 200A electrical panel? FYI, it's a cable consisting of 3 wires the same diameter of the average person's index finger. It's huge.
    I know Ford is partnering with somebody to make this unit directional connection to the home possible but I still say you can't power in entire home from the F-150 lightning. Still.... I'm extremely excited for electric vehicles right now, particularly the F-150 lightning.

    It would really be cool if they could add solar panels as an accessory option that you can store in that trunk, and you can pull them out and or connect to the battery to use as a backup in the uneventful case of an emergency situation. If you got stuck somewhere and can’t get to a charging station or not able to charge from any power sources, what would you do? Such emergency situations has happened with gas vehicles on long road trips where there’s an unexpected detour or an accident on highway or inclement weather and you find yourself somewhere crossing fingers and praying that you’ll make it to the next available gas station that sometimes may not be opened, I can imagine the same scenario as it pertains to charging stations! It would be the quintessential breakthrough 21st century technology!!!

    GREAT Review! I really would like to reserve one of these but my question is how in the world would I take a road trip longer than 300 miles driving an electric vehicle? One charge wouldn't get me from Florida to Louisiana, lol.
    I just sold my 2021 King Ranch back to the Ford dealership so I'll be looking to get another truck within the next year.

    I am surprised Im not seeing a lot of Die hard "Truck Experts" posting bad comments about this. This video proves that EVs have come a long way. I wonder if ford has any plans for any Future EV F-650's.F-700's and their semi's now that will be a impressive. Im sure its a long way to go but would be interesting to see. I gotta say this though, well done ford! Always strong and never had to borrow money from the government like the other top American car brands. I just hope the new V-8 Ford Raptor will put the Ram TRX to shame and make those die hard ram fans shut up for once, haha.

    Ford F150 Lightning is in my opinion way better than the Cybertruck. And I'm also, as you, not a truck person. Mainly because I do live in Germany and we here are driving smaller cars and Pickup trucks are really rare here in Europe.
    But if Ford decides to bring the Lightning in Europe, then I would really consider buying this truck.
    Ford has, in the last two decades, done much to please every type of customer, from the normal buyer who thinks a car is only a way to get fro point A to B, to the customer who has the need for speed, they can buy a Ford Fiesta ST or a Focus ST, and as you mentioned it, the price-factor is huge. You do really get a lot for your money, and "our" typical German car manufacturers like Audi, BMW or Mercedes are literally crazy when it comes to prices and what you do have to pay for certain features which are often standard in other brands.
    Kind regards from Germany, Philipp 👋🏻
