Searched but not super extensively.

Reveal is tonight. Leaked pics as of last night. Will be interesting to see pricing and range of it. Been largely pretty quiet.

I know the name works but Ford is fucking up by tainting legendary vehicle names with electric vehicles.

I'm usually not a fan of resurrecting iconic nameplates and slapping them on less than stellar vehicles but given the truck is going to be all electric it's bound to be fast as fuck as was the point of the original lightning. Add to that the correlation between being electric and lightning I think it works.

I agree, if it’s a sport truck then obviously it’s a great name choice.

but it sure as shit doesn’t look like one from that photo

I really hope the grill is attached to the hood in the middle and comes up together. making the frunk so you can slide stuff into it or have some kinda pull out bench for working on stuff.

They're going to have to offer something close to tesla's 40k entry point or they'll get killed in volume numbers.
