Ford F-150 Lightning: Best Price to Performance and What the Competion looks like

Ford F-150 Lightning: Best Price to Performance and What the Competion looks like

The electric truck race is on. Ford has released the Ford F-150 Lightning. GMC, Bollinger, Chevrolet, Rivian and Tesla are also competing for glory as the top electric truck manufacturer. Consumers will be spoiled for choice, but which manufacturer will be ‘king of the hill’? We look at how this top truck competes with available electric trucks and others soon to reach the showroom floor. Will the Lightning leave its competitors in the dust like its gas version predecessor? Let’s find out!

 

Prices and Specifications

Prices and Specifications

 

The price range starts at a very agreeable $68,000 for the XLT, a whopping $20,000 less than the current GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 base model price. The truck can tow a total mass of 7,700 pounds and can carry a total weight of 2,000 pounds. The truck has an electric range of 370 kilometres, and it takes 11.9 hours to charge the battery. The truck has an independent rear suspension and all-wheel drive. 

 

The interior is the same as its gas version counterpart with enormous space. Included is the platinum trim dashboard dominated by a 39.37cm touchscreen taken from the Mustang Mach-E EV. Ford’s BlueCruise is standard on the Lariat and Platinum trims. The ride and acceleration are incredibly smooth, with no noise in the cabin, which is more refined and comfortable. The added space in the lockable frunk is a great addition.

 

How Does the Truck Compare With Other EV Trucks?

Bollinger has taken a cue from Tesla to delay the release of their trucks. When it comes to looks, the Bollinger looks primitive, and the Tesla looks like something out of a science-fiction movie. Bollinger B1 and B2 are class-three hybrid trucks, meaning that the truck will be heavy and oversized without airbags. The dual motor is estimated to be able to produce 600 horsepower, and its starting price will be around six figures. The Tesla Cybertruck will have Tesla Autopilot, which will help the driver brake, accelerate and keep the vehicle in its lane. The truck will have a system upgrade, which will enable the truck to drive without human intervention. The Electric Chevrolet Silverado is expected to be released in 2023. The vehicle resembles a modern look with a battery pack that’ll provide 643.7 kilometres with a fast-charging battery. The Silverado will be able to haul up to 1,300 and tow 10,000 pounds. The Rivian R1T starts at $67,000, and the truck has a range of 547 kilometres. The battery takes 13 hours to charge and has a max towing capacity of 11,000 pounds.
