  1. Lightnings are like EV Ninjas, especially in HOV lanes

    Since the Lightning doesn't look like an EV, we're starting to sneak up on people who have no idea we're driving a fully electric vehicle. I was at a mall the other day where they offer free EV charging spaces right in the front of the lot. As I was pulling into the spot, a guy in a Tesla came...
  2. Video review of my Atlas Blue XLT with 312A

    I took some time yesterday to head over to the park with some cameras, tripods, and microphones to shoot a quick video of my Lightning. When I got to the park, all sorts of things didn't go as planned, so I decided to just shoot something quick using just my iPhone. I shot it all in one take...
  3. Frunk Creek and other problems

    Some of our members have reported various Frunk failure messages, and one member even had the Frunk literally open unexpectedly while driving. I've had three problems with my Frunk. 1. Sometimes it doesn't open when I hit the button under the hood. When this happens, unlocking the whole truck...
  4. Staten Island - Dana Ford has a Lariat IN STOCK NOW

    My sales rep called me on Sunday to let me know he has a Lariat in stock right now in case I knew anyone who was looking to get one. My sales rep is Jorge. He knows me as Joe. I paid MSRP for mine, but I have no way to know what the final sales price is because the last time they had one on...
  5. Spotted Black XLT at Washington's Crossing today

    I spent the day riding along on both sides of the Delaware River today, and as I pulled out of the parking lot, I came across a brand new black XLT parked on the other side of the lot. So far, I've only come across one other Lightning in the wild, which makes me wonder if there was a chance it...
  6. What follows Lightning? THUNDER (bird)?

    Ford only makes ONE CAR, the Mustang. Everything else is a truck or SUV. It seems to me that if they want to build another car, the only logical choice would be to bring back the Thunderbird. So, I stumbled on this today... taken from the US Patent and Trademark office. About a year ago...
  7. Unclaimed orders = Opportunities

    I just visited my local dealer and checked out one of the Lightnings that's been sitting on the lot for almost a week because the customer still hasn't picked it up. The sales rep told me they've been reaching out to the customer to let him know his order arrived, but he hasn't made an...
  8. Why I don't have Range Anxiety ordering a Standard Range

    Quite a few people online and offline ask me about the range of my "Standard Range" Mustang Mach-E, so I thought I'd share some of my experience here. A lot of people tell me they're interested in an EV but are waiting for the "next generation" of EVs getting 500 or more miles so it could be...
  9. My dealer's website SAYS they have FOUR Lightnings IN-STOCK NOW

    I was the 2nd person at my dealership to order a Lightning, so you would think I would be one of the first to get mine. Right now, my dealer has FOUR lightnings, including a Pro, Lariat and Platinum sitting in INVENTORY. Meanwhile, my "Production Date" slipped to August 1. **** UPDATED ****...
  10. New York City

    I'm in Staten Island... Ordered from Dana Ford / Lincoln. Anyone else nearby?
  11. Video: My F-150 Lightning Factory Tour - Launch Event

    As many of you know, a handful of customers, including several of us from this message board were invited to the official Lightning Launch Event in Dearborn MI. Among other perks, we had full access to the factory and were allowed to tour the whole place... and I did exactly that. I walked the...
  12. My build date just moved another month later.... anyone else?

    My original build date was week of 6/13/22. Now it's 7/25/22. :( Anyone else just get pushed back?
  13. First F-150 Lightning Test Drive Video by Real Customer (IdeaOfTheDayCom)

    As many of you know, I was the 5th person outside of Ford to test drive the new Lightning. Here's my video taken from my own phone of my test drive. I have a TON of other videos to post, including a couple of walk-throughs of the entire factory from end to end. I shot it in 360, so I literally...
  14. [Updated With First Details] I'm Attending Lightning Official Launch Event

    Ford invited me to attend the Official Launch Event taking place on Tuesday April 26 at 1:30pm at the factory in Dearborn. I'm so honored and thankful for the opportunity to attend this historic event. Up until this point, every Lightning we've ever seen has been considered a prototype, so...
  15. F-150 Lightning Forum's gone solo!

    I love to check the F150Gen14 site from time to time to see what the latest news is, and I was pleasantly surprised when it redirected to an all-new site, just for the Lightning. Nicely done. Now we've got a place of our own. :)
  16. Lightning Ride-Along Impressions from the New York Auto Show… WOW!

    I just got back from the New York Auto Show and I have to say that it blew me away! The VIP invitation from Ford let me jump to the front of the line for a ride… INSIDE the Convention Center, which was a total surprise. With such a small space, I didn’t expect the driver to be able to fully...
  17. CarPlay Just Got BIGGER on Ford's 15" Screens

    I've always loved CarPlay and until last week, it pretty much looked the same on my Mustang Mach-E as it did on my old F-150... except it was a rectangle inside the big screen. Then last week, it got BIGGER. It's more square than it was before, and that extra space makes maps, and just about...
  18. Confusing XLR 312A Rear Sliding Window and Unique Rear Signature Lighting

    If you go to the build and price page on the Ford website, then look at the XLT photos with, and without the 312A package, you'll notice that the rear sliding window is only visible when you select the 312A package, but somehow it's not listed in the feature list. The only place they mention it...
  19. Rubber bed liner… Will the Lightning bed have the same exact footprint?

    I forgot to order a rubber bed liner with my Lightning, and I don‘t want to change anything on my order for fear it will screw something up. So, I was wondering if the bed has the same footprint as the regular 5.5 bed? I see a lot of nice liners out there, but I think Ford’s got a simple...
  20. Just placed my 2022 Lightning order... Does the dealer have to honor the online price?

    I just got my order link... picked and XLT with the $9k upgrade package for things like heated power seats / power lift gate /etc. The total came to about $64K. Here's what's in the confirmation email: Now the big question... There was no mention of the dealer having any extra markup. Does...
