New F-150 Lightning Can Take What Any Season Dishes Out

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.
