    An electric truck makes a ton of sense. Most people aren't taking them very long range, the extra torque is great for towing, and having access to the battery bank for running tools is a game changer.

    I'd rather have the F-150 Lightning over the Cybertruck. I was pretty hyped about the Cybertruck at first, but the hype quickly wore off the more they keep putting off production. Plus, to be honest I'm definitely a truck guy, so the traditional truck look certainly appeals to me more.

    I've been driving a F-250 for he past few years. After watching this video, I've gone from thinking about the Ford Lightning to seriously considering placing an order as soon as possible. Thank you for a your informative review. I always enjoy your videos.

    Putting my deposit in today. This is everything I've been waiting for. I was torn between this and the Rivian. I like the Rivians 4 independent motors as opposed to the Lighting having 1 motor per axle, but either way its 4 wheel drive which is good enough for me. And I'm sure Ford is putting some sort of torque vectoring on there to direct more torque to the wheel that has more traction on either axle. The thing that seals it for me is the price. I can get one of these for a solid 25,000 dollars less than an R1T. That's a huge deal. 25,000 is a significant amount to a middle class dude. Love the bidirectional power too. This thing is just incredible.

    You are excellent at reviewing and narrating! You keep it flowing and state facts, with just a few justified opinions. Oh yeah! The truck was pretty cool too!

    This would be my ultimate all purpose car. This and a booster board is literally all the wheels I'd need in my life.

    Such a friggin’ well presented video! Ford is doing it right and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

    I’m 100% for the lighting over the cyber truck. First it’s way better looking and I already have an F150 so I know what to expect. Not to mention that Tesla has some build quality issues that I’m sure will transfer to the cyber truck.

    I watch a lot of vehicle review videos and this is one of the best I've seen--lots of information. I'm not a truck guy but am seriously considering buying a Lightning. I just hope the reliability measures up.

    This is an INCREDIBLE video! The descriptions and explanations of even the most mundane items is informative and very easy to comprehend, even for individuals who know very little about EV technology and passenger vehicles in general. Great video.... Thank you

    depending on how much power you actually have with that full battery,

    This is a game changer! They've thought of everything!!! It has everything and more in what I would want for a truck this is freaking amazing I'm definitely getting one

    Nice work Marques, and nice work Ford! I see the F-150 Lightning as a total win.

    Super interesting. I'd be more interested if they came out with a mid to low end trim package, do not need the fancy stuff, got rid of a chunk of the front trunk to find more battery space and came out with a 6/6.5 ft bed. But all in all, a super good step in the right direction

    Out of all the gizmos and high tech accessories, it was the drain in the front trunk so you can put ice and drinks for a tailgate party that sold me. That’s awesome.

    I want this exact same power setup in an Explorer. Though, I think any truck or mid sized and up SUV should be capable of transporting a 4x8 sheet of material. Escapes and Explorers are always an inch or two too narrow. I hate the short beds of the crew cab pickups too. Fold down seats in the Explorer are nice, but the width sucks.

    I love your videos. You are articulate about specs, but also are good at quantifying the feel of these vehicles. Well done.

    I hope these really can be had for $40,000. The "weak" motor is still mightier than the 5.3 V8 in my 2017 GMC 1500 (430 hp vs. 353) and way better on torque (775 lb/ft vs. 383 lb/ft).

    Ford was very smart to recently totally break away from the rivian partnership. They're right..they can do this on their own. Gorgeous truck. The styling is great...more along the lines of their traditional look but definitely with that added flair that says it's something very new. The price, features, storage.....power your tools and home even if necessary... its all a big win. As for the cybertruck, i dont even know what teslas thinking with that. Even more amazing is that they have any orders for it. The Rivian, i just dont like that front end lighting design. Hands down the winner is..Built Ford tough. Great review! Thanks :)
