Do most people need a truck "around town"? unless they are a delivery company.
If you're a DIY home owner you absolutely need a truck. When the water heater craps out, time for a homedepot run, new furniture, major appliance, gardening/landscaping supplies etc.......

Also comes in handy when ya wanna take the atv down to the local spillway for some off road fun.

Right now I have three vehicles, a 2019 Niro EV, a 4WD 2004 Envoy XL and 2015 Fusion Energi. The Fusion Energi is my wife’s car, the Envoy is what I use to haul heavy loads and pull my boat and the Niro EV is my long range electric car. The F150 to me is not just an electric pickup truck, it’s the embodiment of everything I need and want from a vehicle.

We have heard little mention of the aluminum body on the F150 Lightning. With the body being so light, the F150 Lightning is really just a massive EV battery on wheels. Calling the F150 Lightning a pickup truck just doesn’t feel right, it’s something much more.

I hope that after all is said and done the only vehicle I will have left is the F150 Lightning. I don’t commute much anymore so I don’t really need a small intercity car. I do make some long road trips and the AWD F150 Lightning will add a lot of security in the winter.

Retirement age is approaching and the F150 Lightning would allow me to fulfill my dream of buying a travel trailer and allowing wind and solar energy to power me down the retirement road. Do I need a F150 Lightning is not even a question I ask. The question I find myself asking is how I ever got along before without a F150 Lightning.

For years I have been dreaming of something electric that can to 5k+ and doesn't cost 80k. Like you, I will be able to get rid of multiple vehicles and replace them with the lightning. I'm just hoping I can make the monthly payment work out as it is over twice as much as any previous vehicle I have purchased.

May help that you don't have to buy any gasoline or oil changes...maybe saving $300 per month? Won't make up the 2X price difference entirely, but certainly will help with the payments and will probably have lots of life left in it after you stop driving at 90 (?). Will need to include it in your will!

Looks like Ford had another event showcasing the F-150 Lightning ⚡. Here are some good photos of a Lightning ⚡ Platinum, and the “Frunk”, and interior!
