I live in Seattle, but many big cities are like this. This is in a neighborhood where the cheapest (ordinary) house is a million now.
I think I am coming to the same conclusion about the door lock style being unchanged from the gas version. From what I am reading, the last two years have seen Ford move to an "in handle" lock cylinder that is even easier to defeat. All you have to do is pull the door handle, insert pliers and twist the lock cylinder to unlock the door! If I end up with a Lightning (no word from Ford on my early reservation), my first step will be to eliminate the in-handle door lock entirely, replacing it with a one typically used in the rear doors; this seems to be the preferred method of preventing theft. I hopeI was hoping with the Lightning they would eliminate the key lock (like the EV leader has done). I believe however many pickups are used differently than the traditional family sedan, so they were afraid to alienate too many people/drivers. With the economy and number of thefts however, they must start to do something.
Likely every truck they've made in the last few years and especially with the Lightning it would be super simple to enable a PIN on the Sync screen that is required before starting/driving. It could be optional as maybe not all like it or want it, but it's too simple to not do it. A thief might get in, but they aren't going to drive it without your PIN to drive.
As for the true question my gut tells me the true door locks on this truck will be identical to what is on current models. More can be done, but it doesn't truly benefit Ford, so don't hold your breath.
