I've seen word out on social media already so the cat is out of the bag. There is a big Lightning "release" event the last week of April. Big wigs, press, show off the newly built trucks, etc. Not sure what all will happen but expect lots of Lightning news that week. Maybe press drives?

The amazing news is Ford invited me.

The horrible news is that is the one week between now and June I couldn't make it work. I'm committed to another trip that week, my first air travel since COVID!

It's eating me up inside that I can't go but I'll hopefully have future opportunities closer to home. Anyway, expect big news that week.

Funny you brought this up because I just heard that F-150 lighting first drives will kick off during the week of May 4th.

I hope we start getting some cool visuals and early takes on the Lightning (via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) ahead of the actual reviews

I hope this means Ok to Buy will be achieved by then !!

Do you have an alternated from your dealership going?
I don't know where Ford Communications got my name. It could have been local from the dealership or could have been from corporate contacts. They are working their way down a list of nominees.

The launch event starts at 1:30 eastern on the 26th.


DEARBORN, Mich., April 14, 2022 – The countdown is on. April 26 marks the launch of the all-new, all-electric F-150® Lightning™ pickup.

Ford and UAW leaders will host customers and employees to celebrate the start of F-150 Lightning production at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan. Ford employees and F-150 Lightning customers will join the “Job 1” event for the first-ever full-size all-electric pickup to go on sale, a milestone moment in the country’s shift to electric vehicles.

Ford F-Series pickup has been America’s best-selling truck for 45 years in a row1 and is second only to the iPhone in revenue among all American consumer products, according to a 2020 study. The Rouge Electric Vehicle Center is an ultra-modern new facility within Ford’s historic Rouge Complex where Henry Ford perfected the moving assembly line and scaled the Model T.

The event begins April 26, 1:30 p.m. eastern and will be livestreamed at http://ford.to/LightningStrikes.
