Watch: the 572bhp Ford F-150 Lightning's big test
Is America ready for the most powerful *electric* F-150 ever built? TG investigates
The Ford F-150 Lightning is an all-electric version of America’s best-selling truck for the last 45 years… which is why it has a Mega Power Frunk instead of pistons under the bonnet. In a good year, Ford sells close to a million of its F-Series trucks and turns over around $40bn in the process.
