Not a fan of the tiny tires and severe rake. And, yes I know its for better economy numbers.

I'm hoping that gigantic tablet gets integrated into the dash better. I don't care for the look right now.

The XLT doesn't get the 15.5 inch screen. It gets the 12 inch screen like the gas 2021 f150

Ford should’ve made it so it can be plugged in from either side instead of putting a fake plug on the other side.

Outside of the obvious, does anyone have any idea what else has gone totally electric on the new Lightning compared to the ICE or Hybrid F150.

What do you mean? They removed the engine, exhaust system, multi-speed transmission and gas tank. They replaced those with two motors, battery, and a one-speed transmission. Everything else was always electric.

18" on Pro and XLT
20" on Lariat
22" on Platinum
Thanks for the info.
I wonder if the Lariat or Platinum will get the same huge front rotors that I’ve heard are coming on the Mach E GT
19“ inches.

I'd think the brakes would be commensurate with the weight and towing capabilities of the truck. The Lightning is about 700 pounds heavier than the PowerBoost, though it has a lower towing rating (10,000 vs. 13,000 pounds).

I think you are referring to the 19" wheel diameter, not the brake diameter. The brake rotors on the MachE GT are 385mm which is a little more than 15". The biggest brakes on an F150 right now (with max towing package) are 350mm. I think they will likely keep that diameter on the Lightning.
