    And here is the reason for the elevated rear cab floor on the Lightning and another reason Ford is going quick to design the 2nd gen EV Lightning to be released in 2025.
  2. New look at the EV factory

    And here is the reason for the elevated rear cab floor on the Lightning and another reason Ford is going quick to design the 2nd gen EV Lightning to be released in 2025.
  3. Ford F-150 Lightning realistic delivery dates

    Today Tesla has a slighty quicker lead time 9-13 weeks, vs. Mach-E 16+ weeks. There is no way Lightning production will reach 88k in Y1 (2022) more like 8.8k as the Truck has a much larger battery.
  4. Placed Cybertruck order after Lightning reservation

    As an early Lightning reservation holder this is what I'm thinking. Model year 2022 Lightning will be first edition models @ $90k, order window opening up late 2021. This will be approximately 7-8k unit volume because of startup and battery ramp up capacity constraints. Reference Bronco and...
  5. Placed Cybertruck order after Lightning reservation

    What is the plaid+? Cyber truck? Or Model S? I just heard a podcast interviewing Jay Leno where he got to witness a production Model S plaid+ completing a 9.2 quarter mile at 154 MPH. If I remember correctly it was a new record world's quickest four-door production car
  6. Placed Cybertruck order after Lightning reservation

    Tesla calls it an order while Ford calls it a reservation. Ever since I placed my Lightning reservation I have been watching a ton of Model Y v. Mach-E comparison videos. Both are awesome vehicles while being very different which makes the comparison very interesting. It's not like the old...
  7. Order Bank for F-150 Lightning opens when?

    Order book doesn't mean anything, It's not until they get the battery factory up and running in Georgia that matters. Until then we'll see huge wait times. GM has the same problem with the battery factory they're building in Tennessee. With the way labor shortages are right now I don't see then...
  8. 2021 F-150 Lightning With Extended Battery May Get ~460 Miles Range, Unloaded!

    Yes yes we need to remember most of the energy consumed is fighting wind resistance. If you travel 15 mph in any vehicle you're going to get phenomenal efficiency which could throw off the estimated range the YouTuber was displaying. Read up on the Mach E extreme cold weather performance. The...

  10. Federal EV $7500 Rebate for F-150 Lightning

    The union test shouldn't be allowed. I'm not a lawyer and can't speak to legal challenges but I don't see how Union v. non-union shops has anything to do with EV tax credits. Also this doesn't benefit a potential Lightning buyer like me because I already don't even pay $7,500 in federal income...
  11. Digesting the 70% price gap between the XLT and Platinum Lightning.

    I am estimating for high options it will be $67-$72K for XLT, $76-82K for Lariat, and $94-96K for Platinum.
  12. Digesting the 70% price gap between the XLT and Platinum Lightning.

    Where will the Lariat land? I have been analyzing and comparing ICE model price differences to try to better understand the huge gap between the Lightning XLT and Platinum price. Things to remember: It doesn't matter what it cost to make, it's what they can get away with charging. There is no...
  13. Ford F-150 Lightning realistic delivery dates

    Considering the amount of work that needs to be done 2 years seems like a safe bet. Yes some will get theirs sooner but most of us are not that special. Thinking the first 5-10k will be reserved to priority customers in front of the $100 deposit holders. (Just like Mach-E and Bronco) Full...
  14. X-plan for Lightning reservation holders?

    🍿 I have tried to buy an F-150 using X-Plan. It helps but I never know for sure how much exactly. Not sure if available for specials like Raptor, launch edition Bronco, GT-350/500, and of course Lightning launch year.
  15. 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Trims / Models Differences - Explained

    Tesla Model 3 for $35k or F150 Lightning for $40k?..... Ha ha, silly rabbit, real world pricing is much higher. I don't project anyone paying under $55k for a Lightning in 2022. Hoping for a upside surprise.
  16. Post your PRELIM Build here

    Standard range, heated seats, heat steering wheel, power fold mirrors, rear window that opens. Basically an EV version of the ICE truck I drive now. ICE versions of this F-150 config ran 14k off MSRP (OTD $37k) in the summer of 2018 when I purchased my RAM for $32k. Now I'm looking at upper $50k...
  17. 📊 Poll: Are you getting a 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning? 🛻⚡️

    Really need a "Maybe" option. If the price, with options isn't crazy expensive, then yes. If they can build more than just super optioned and expensive launch edition, then yes. A year from now is a long time. They can't even build the fancy Ranger (Bronco). Odds seem very low right now for...
  18. Official 2022 F-150 Lightning Specs, Pricing, Photos & Videos!

    One wish list item: 6 passenger seating option for both XLT and Lariat trims.
