The Ford F-150 Lightning Could Undercut Every Other Full-Size Truck on the Market
It’s not been long since Ford launched the electric 2022 F-150 Lightning. There are a lot of talking points about it, but the highlight is its price. Ford had announced in the past that it isn’t looking at building EVs costing more than $100,000. This meant that the truck would top out in the high five-digit figures, but no one expected a sub-$40,000 starting price before federal tax credits. Account for the state incentives along with it and the effective price falls under $30,000 in some states!
Motor1 compiled a list of the prices after factoring in the incentives and discounts and it looks like the F-150 Lightning will be the cheapest full-size truck you can buy today!
The Ford F-150 Lightning Breaks Cover As A Sub-$40,000 Electric Truck
In July 2019, Ford came up with a one million-pound towing stunt. That was the first time we heard anything related to its electric truck. It served as an official confirmation that Ford was working on an electric F-150 to take on the likes of the Tesla Cybertruck and the Rivian R1T. Almost two years later, the truck has finally arrived.
Ford has revived the ‘Lightning’ moniker for its electric truck. The F-150 Lightning is the quickest and the most powerful F-150 ever. The maximum payload and towing capacity are rated at 2,000- and 10,000 pounds, respectively. The biggest revelation, however, is its price. The electric Ford F-150 Lightning starts at a shade under $40,000 for the commercial trim and $53,000 for the base trim.
Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning Electric Pickup
Update: 5/20/2021 The Ford F-150 Lightning has been revealed, so head over to our in-depth coverage of America’s best electric truck to learn more about it!
It’s been a while since FoMoCo’s train-pulling PR stunt came to further hype the arrival of the all-electric Ford F-150. As Ford has been rather tight-lipped lately about its full-electric pickup truck, we thought we’d have a look at what we know up until this point and what we should expect expect from the electric F-150. Here’s what we can report for the time being.
GMC Unveils The 2024 Hummer EV SUV
Almost every new upcoming EV truck has an SUV-twin – Rivian R1T and R1S, Bollinger B1 and B2, and so on. GMC has jumped the wagon, too, and has officially announced an electric SUV based on the Hummer EV. While many features are shared, there are a few differences between the two that deem the SUV to be the inferior one. It boasts of fewer horses in the SUV avatar but there seems to be no price difference in the three standard trims on offer.
2021 Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 - Driven
The Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 is based on the standard Mercedes GLS SUV. It costs twice as much as the GLS but is a lot more premium and plusher. The Maybach-affiliation to the SUV puts it right at the top with the likes of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and the Bentley Bentayga. It isn’t as expensive as the British brands, but comes with enough tech and luxuriousness to keep you happy if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. It comes with a V-8 engine under the hood to help it propel to 60 mph in less than four seconds. The looks, however, isn’t the GLS600’s strong suit.
While it seems a good package overall, will a Bentayga or a Cullinan customer consider the GLS600? Or will a standard GLS customer upgrade to it, for that matter?

Quit Wasting Time And Learn The Real Story Behind the GMC Syclone
The GMC Syclone is undoubtedly one of the most bonkers cars ever built by GM. It could whoop a Ferrari’s ass in a straight-line race back in 1991 and just under 3,000 units were produced, all painted black - except for the Marlboro Editions, which were red and white.
In case the Syclone still has the power to unearth some nostalgia for you, here’s a video that will refresh your knowledge on the performance pickup truck.
This Angry-Looking Amphibious Tank Will Have You Begging For The Zombie Apocalypse
Amphibious vehicles have always garnered enough attention and there are already quite a few in the market today. It used to be for fun and small swims in the past, but amphibious vehicles now seem to have a bright future, thanks to companies like HighLand Systems which is building them for more than merry rides.
The Ukraine-based manufacturer has developed a mean-looking vehicle called Storm that is built as a “multi-role armored vehicle, designed for use in a wide range of specialist military and civil applications”. Now, if only we could have a zombie apocalypse so it could prove its mettle! Oh, wait. Did I say that out loud?
New Facts About the Tesla Cybertruck Have Emerged
Some time ago, Tesla unveiled their boldly-styled Cybertruck. The futuristic-looking EV puck-up truck was and still is talked about a lot. We also know that it will be on sale sometime in late 2021. Despite its official introduction, however, the Cybertruck remained a work in progress and now, more details about it came out.
Look Quick - Here’s the Lamborghini Urus Evo Testing On Public Roads!
Lamborghini has started the development of the Urus Evo as spy photos of a camouflaged prototype have started to come into circulation. The prototype was seen testing in the snow alongside a current version of the Urus. A handful of changes are expected in the Urus Evo, regarded as an updated version of the super SUV that Lamborghini launched in 2018. The testing phase is still in the early stages so don’t expect the Urus Evo to debut at least until the latter part of 2021 or well into 2022.
2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch Edition
The Ford Explorer proudly wears the “America’s all-time best-selling SUV” tag, and the automaker has found another way to pump up the sales. Ford has added a new trim to the lineup – the King Ranch – to further bolster the mid-level card within the Explorer’s lineup. It comes with a decent load of tech features along with leather and wood elements inside the cabin to bring out the “authenticity of the iconic Texas ranch”.
If Lamborghini Really Wants People to Off-Road The Urus, It Should Look Like This
Back when Lamborghini was still teasing the Urus, we were served with a video that showcased the SUV’s Sabbia mode. By the way, Sabbia is the Italian word for sand. For the video, Lamborghini took a pre-production to Dubai, where it was let loose to raise clouds of dust to our entertainment.
Since then, the Urus has established itself a top seller in Lambo’s range and we are willing to bet that no customer took it off the beaten path. Not with the intent to genuinely punish it, that it. Which might change if this digitally rendered off-road kit gets made.
Jay Leno Says The 1959 Ferret Armoured Scout Drives Like a Car
We’ve seen Jay Leno’s YouTube channel feature all sorts of vehicles of various shapes and sizes over the years. Somehow, we’re used to the man getting to drive every wheeled machine out there that’s destined for civilian use. That’s why seeing Leno next to a Ferret armored car just made our interest pique.
