Hello everyone,

I am looking forward to getting the XLT version. But likely in a few years from now.

This wouldn't be my first F-150. This would be my 3rd.

My wife and I took out the Mach-E for a test drive. No power pedals for the wife. She said NO.

Gotta pay off my Ford Flex before I'm allowed to get this new truck. Looking forward to see what new items are standard by then.

Welcome to the forum @Mister Mitch! Will the Lightning be your first EV? Were the power pedals the only thing preventing you from getting a Mach-E?

Yes, it was the only thing that my wife had against the Mach-E.

While we had the Mach-E out for a test drive, I pulled over and was looking at the online manual. I must admit, that's a pretty slick feature. Yes, we know that you can move the seat forward, up/down, etc and yes, the steering column would go up/down, towards the firewall and back. But my wife prefers NOT to sit right on top of the steering wheel. Which she would have in the Mach-E. She is only 4'9" tall.

I asked on the Mach-E forum, if any of them had power pedals. They confirmed, nope.

Our 2nd F-150, it did have power pedals. So, I'm going to make a leap of faith, this newer truck should also have power pedals.

I seen a Tesla Model Y last week. No power pedals on that car.

So now, it will be a waiting game. What features will the truck have...

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a Power Pedal? The Mach E has one. It's the accelerator and sits to the right of the brake pedal. However, I'm sure that's not what you are talking about.

Too long, didn't read: Power Pedals = electronically controlled brake and gas pedals that will move towards, or away, from the driver with the use of a switch, or toggle, normally located on the left side of the steering column.

I've got a 2017 Ford Flex Limited.
When I touch the car door handle, the car unlocks.
The side mirrors will cant outwards (Yes, they do have power fold)
The driver seat will lower and go backwards, the seat back will also tilt backwards a bit.
The "power pedals" will move towards the firewall.

The reverse will happen when my wife touches the door handle.
The exterior mirrors will cant inwards.
The seat will raise and move forwards. The back of the chair will go to a more upright position.
... and finally, the power pedals will move towards the driver seat.

My wife and I have enjoyed these memory settings on our 2007 F-150 XLT, on our 2009 Ford Flex Limited, also, on our 2013 Ford Taurus SEL.

Since my wife is only 4'9" tall, we do rely on the "power pedals" to move closer to the seat, so that she might not be sitting right on top of the steering wheel. I am 5'9"tall, so I do enjoy the pedals a bit further away from me.

We had taken a Ford Edge out for a test drive and we noticed, no power pedals. So that car "went out the window".
When we had taken out the Mach-E for a test drive, I pulled over and was going to give the wheel to my wife. I searched and searched for the a button, lever, or some other setting on the touch screen to move the pedals towards the driver seat. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the owner's manual was right at my finger tips, on the touch screen. A quick search confirmed, no power pedals on this particular car.

This meant, no Mach-E for me. Crap.

Having said that, I have been looking, over and over at YouTube videos. No one has spoken about it so far. But yes, the steering wheel will telescope and also go up and down. I've seen that. Hell, even the stick shift will power fold.

A picture is worth a thousand words. I have circled and drawn an arrow to the toggle switch for the power pedals in our 2007 F-150

As you can see by this picture, my wife hasn't adjust the pedals just yet. Her feet can't reach the pedals.

Interesting. I've never had that in a car or noticed it in any car I've driven.

Thanks.

Since Ford offers it on their current ICE trucks I don't see why it couldn't be carried over to the Lightning. Especially if Ford wants to make the Lightning feel like as much of a normal truck as possible to get people to buy and try it out. Hopefully that's the case for you and your wife.
