That’s right folks; TFL Studios just bought one of the first, all-electric 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning pickup trucks – and we’re driving it from Michigan to Colorado… Right now!
Yes, we tested the Rivian R1T recently, but many truck fans know that the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is built for the masses. That’s exactly why we just bought one. Many truck fans are curious about the real-world capability of this pickup truck. That’s why we traded in our beloved Ram 1500 TRX for it. This is the tip of the proverbial iceberg with real electric pickup trucks. In the near future, we expect to see a slew of all-electric pickup trucks coming from several automakers.
Roman and Andre flew from Colorado to Dearborn, MI to pick up our Lightning the moment it was available. Thanks to our sponsor from Magna (Magna.com), we are going to do A LOT with this truck. In the coming months, we will do several towing tests, off-road tests, range testing and a massive journey.
Meanwhile, the boys are in for a very long drive. Not only do they have to get this vehicle back to Colorado within the next 48 hours (or less), they have to charge it along the way. Sure, they have to eat and sleep as well, but that comes second to getting the truck to the studio ASAP. Why? We have to prep it for a myriad of videos – for you!
TFL Studios will be heading to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska in the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning.
Driving an all-electric vehicle off the grid is one thing, but heading to one of the northern-most locations is another. Prudhoe Bay isn’t a simple stroll passing Canada, it is extraordinarily remote. Simply finding electricity along the way will be a monstrous challenge. On top of that, the route is fraught with rugged challenges. It’s not for the meek, to say the least.
Did I mention the thousands and thousands of miles to drive there – and back!?
Check out this video and whish these two intrepid goofballs a safe journey!
p.s. We are geocaching swag along the way, and this video has the first clue to find some treasure!
