  1. Anyone else get this message about plug and charge?

    Showed up for both our Lightning and Mach-e.
  2. First battle damage

    Got back from our DC trip today. Truck did great, average of 2.3 mi/kWh with some decent travel speeds, but unfortunately she took a little battle damage. 1) Wife was parking in a parking garage and scraped a pipe hanging from the ceiling. Thankfully no glass damage. 2) While charging at New...
  3. FSCP just died

    Yeah! Another issue. It seems my FSCP decided to die sometime today. Got home and plugged in and I keep getting an external charging error with a flashing red ring on the truck. The truck can charge successfully from the Grizzl-e we use for my wife so thankfully it isn't an issue with the...
  4. No Preconditioning for over a week

    Ok - starting to hit my wits end on this. My truck as just stopped preconditioning. No alerts in Fordpass, and nothing happens at the scheduled time. It doesn't matter if I am plugged in to L2, or unplugged. I have tried deleting and resetting the schedule in the truck. Toggling it on and...
  5. More Electric Lightning

    My Lightning was too plain for my tastes. Grabbed a few quick pictures before I lost the light.
  6. Exact color for blue on Lightning badges

    Does anyone know the exact color (name or rgb values) for the blue highlights on the Lightning badges? I am looking at getting some vinyl work done and want to match it as close as possible.
  7. Temperature gauges dummy or real

    Does anyone know if the temperature gauges for the battery and motor are really or just fancy "dummy" lights? As it is getting colder out, I would have expected them to read lower (if still in the normal range), but they just stay fixed dead center. If they are dummy lights, I am disappointed...
  8. Are Lightnings being delivered with the Boxlink Cleats??

    Ok, so I know this is a very minor thing, but are Lightnings being delivered with the Boxlink tie down cleats, or just the receivers? I have seen photos both ways and don't see it called out explicitly one way or the other (unless I missed it). I use those tie down cleats all the time. What are...
  9. TFL 10k (almost) mile Lightning review

    TFL is back from Alaska and posted their 10k mile review. Not much new, but they already had some concerning seat wear. Is anyone else seeing that?
  10. 3.8sec 0-60mph for Lightning Lariat Extended Range in Motortrend test review

    Sorry if this is a repeat on the Forum and I missed it. Motortrend got 3.8 seconds 0-60 on a Lariat ER in their testing. https://www.motortrend.com/reviews/2022-ford-f-150-lightning-lariat-first-test-0-60-review/ I really want to see a Lightning vs Mach-e GT drag race. Should really be neck...
  11. NYS Drive Clean rebate vehicle list updated for the Lightning

    Just checked and noticed that the NYS Drive Clean program vehicle list had been updated to add the Lightning. Pro trim gets $2,000 and all other trims get $500 (congrats Pro buyers!) https://www.nyserda.ny.gov/All-Programs/Drive-Clean-Rebate/How-it-Works/Eligible-Models For those not aware...
  12. Do EVs really save $$ - Our results with a Mach-E

    So we just hit 6,000 miles in our Mach-e GT, so I thought I would do a little math (Note: we picked our Mach-e up on 12/31/21 - we have been driving it a lot. Basic Facts (all numbers rounded to make the math easier - does not skew the results in any meaningful way) - 6,000 miles driven over...
  13. Shelby Lightning?

    Given the Mach-e got the Shelby treatment (even if just a prototype so far), what are people's thoughts on a Shelby Lightning? Realistically, what do we think they could do? Carbon fiber Frunk cover? Lighter wheels (and stickier street tires)? Lowering kit? Air suspension? Aero and Graphics...
  14. Conversion Rate

    Anyone have any guesses on when we will find out information on the reservation to order conversion rate? I am guess Ford will wait until after all of the 2022 orders are in (if they say anything), but it would be really nice to know after each wave!
  15. Am I crazy or brilliant

    I have been toying with an idea the last week or so, assuming I am looking at a 2023 or 2024 Lightning. I am currently in a situation where I will soon (early 2022) have some significantly increased cash flow until ~Fall 2023 (Oldest going to college). My currently plan is to triple the...
  16. Run in with a small fleet of testing Lightnings

    Not my video, but a pretty good / quick comparison of the existing trims.
  17. 160k reservations for 2022 F-150 Lightning so far

    Looks like reservations are up to 160k https://www.motortrend.com/news/ford-earnings-report-high-ev-demand/ High Demand for Ford EVs: Lightning, Mach-E, and E-Transit Order banks will help manage demand, Ford CEO says during third-quarter earnings call. October 28, 2021 Ford's bet on...
  18. Teaser image for Silverado EV

    Saw this on Reddit, if this is really what Chevy is bringing out, we all made the right decision going for the Lightning - at least based on looks. https://images.hgmsites.net/hug/gm-chief-ev-officer-travis-hester-with-chevrolet-electric-truck_100770538_h.jpg
  19. A fateful decision... Am I making the wrong call?

    But probably not what you think. First a little background. I current have 2 cars for myself, a 2016 F150 XLT and a 2019 GT350 (obviously a Lightning reserved - likely a 2023). I have a daughter going to college in 2023 and just realized this morning that my factory powertrain warranty on the...
  20. F-150 aerodynamics modeling

    This is for the ICE F150 but very applicable to the Lightning. I didn't expect the huge effect from the "sport back" bed cover. I wonder if we will see a market for them going forward.
