Looks like Ford is working on a hot F-150 Lightning pickup truck
A new ‘EV Performance Demonstrator’ based on the all-electric truck is in the works
There was some rather big news from Ford last week. We doubt you missed it, but just in case – it announced that it would join forces with Red Bull to return to Formula 1 in 2026.
Exciting times, but there was something else that caught our eye amongst all the fanfare. On a document that attempted to outline Ford’s ‘focused and strategic global motorsports program’ was a silhouette of an F-150 Lightning under the section populated by Ford’s other ‘EV performance demonstrators’.
Now, those others include the recent 2,000bhp Supervan 4 and the drifty 1,400bhp Mustang Mach-E 1400 to name but two, so what do we think Ford is planning for its all-electric pickup?
We’d love to see a proper jacked-up, dune-bashing Raptor version, or perhaps a slammed, bewinged F1-spec Lightning would be fun? Anyway, there’s no extra detail as of yet, so go wild with your thoughts in the comments section below folks…
