It’s natural to be skeptical about the capability of an electric truck. There haven’t been many made until recently. But Ford decided to quell any doubts by testing the new F-150 Lightning in the harsh weather of Alaska to truly see how the electric truck performs.
“Alaska provides us the extremely cold temperatures, snow, and ice-covered surfaces that we need to push the F-150 Lightning in this type of testing, which is really focused on dialing in how the truck delivers its power to the ground on slippery surfaces,” said Cameron Dillon, F-150 Lightning powertrain engineer.
“Customers may not regularly see minus 34-degree Celsius mornings like we are seeing here, but they will see winter cold, snow, and icy roads, and they should feel confident their F-150 Lightning is ready for all of it,” Dillon added.
The Ford F-150 Lightning can tackle any season, especially our bitterly cold winters here in Trail, thanks to a handful of useful tools. This includes its standard always-on 4×4 system, front and rear dual motors, quick torque delivery, an electronic-locking rear differential, selectable drive modes, and its low centre of gravity.
