Certainly not but as much as $40k over asking for a pickup with a towing range of what maybe 150km? I'll make some assumptions from that.


If they preordered and bought there’s a very good chance they paid MSRP. Ford made an electric truck that does 0-60 in 4 seconds and gets 78mpg driving in the city. Isn’t that pretty good?

Nope, kinda useless to spend 90k on a truck when there is no range when being used as a truck.

I’m disappointed that there is no Diesel electric hybrid yet from ford.

The lady's husband probably has a diesel.

Its a good grocery getter. Lots of room in the box for shopping. Who cares what somebody drives.

If you made a thread asking people what is the best truck for towing I think everyone would reply F-150. Especially if the trailer is really heavy and you tow every day.

Buddy had a new Dodge Ecodiesel 1/2 ton that pulled a 3 place trailer. Didn’t like towing. Everytime he hooked the 3 place enclosed behind it the truck would throw an engine code halfway to Revelstoke. Finally it went into limp mode last trip at Canmore on way home and we were down to 60 Kms the rest of the way. He just traded it in on a new GM

$97K for a f150 lightning XLT w/ the big battery (515km range). That's a 2023 model and they said 6+ months for delivery. They want $10K down and it kind of sounded like it wasn't refundable. Also unrelated but as you get past $100K mark there's luxury tax. Another fun fact if you do pay luxury tax, there is GST on it.

fricken awesome... a tax on a tax making it a double tax. Great for sock boy's pocket book, not so great for the buyer

I was watching a video on the 2024 Denali electric halfton the other day. Definitely has some cool features, but at an estimated MRSP of $109,000USD I can't see it being that attractive.

GM also thinks they will have over a million electric GM/Chevy pickups on the road by the end of 2025 in North America.
