This is for the ICE F150 but very applicable to the Lightning. I didn't expect the huge effect from the "sport back" bed cover. I wonder if we will see a market for them going forward.
This is the only one I have seen. I have mixed feelings about it....Great to see how huge the advantage is from the "fastback" bed cover.
I was hoping someone would make one that is a "fastback" when driving, but then the top hinges/pops up to horizontal for camping. Then you could put a tent on top another bed or stuff in the bed.
You could have 4 people camp and avoid the huge range hit of a trailer.
Was there supposed to be a picture or attachment?This is the only one I have seen. I have mixed feelings about it....
Whoops - Forgot the link!Was there supposed to be a picture or attachment?
I've seen a fastback on a recent F-150 and I was... not a fan. But if it means I don't have to tow a trailer and cut my range in half and substantially increase my trip time/capability, I might live with it!
Yeah, mixed feelings is a good way to describe that haha
Spoiler on the cab, you say?I believe Rivian addressed this some by the Spoiler on the cab
The change is silhouette would be polarizing - The hypermiler/efficiency optimizer in me loves it, but can see why lotsa truck folks would be appalled....however at $4K, not sure one would get that back in returns on energy savings over the lifetime of the vehicle...If one was looking at expensive $1.5K Tonneau covers...maybe since it gives a little more space and helps mileage a bit...but still a $2.5K premium...would still have a hard time justifying the functional practicality of it.....Yeah, mixed feelings is a good way to describe that haha
And it's $4k, ouch.
Spoiler on the cab, you say?
This truck was spotted near a Lightning that was charging at an EA station (black F-150 at left of picture is a charging Lightning).
Looks like something aero going on at the rear of the cab to me.
