This is what we have to sit and wait and see what Ford does in 2 years. The Lighting was a very quick throw in a battery and electric motors to have something to sell. It is working as most like the F150 for what it is, me included. However, what will they do with the redesign in 2 years from the new factory. It is going to look like the Silverado, etc. It will have to be redesigned for EV efficiency - this truck is none of that.I don't think the Cybertruck is a competitor. Just because the are both "pickup trucks" doesn't mean they are marketed to the same customer. One look at tells it all. Ford deliberately made theirs look just the an ICE F150 for a good reason: Serious truck buyers want a truck they can use with proven durability that has performance advantages over an ICE. Potential Cybertruck owners like general functionality of a truck but how many of them are trading in their Silverado, F-150, or Ram for one? Seems to me a radical design is their so everyone will know (or think) they are "high tech environmentalists". It' a fashion statement just like the Prius. Just my opinion.
At the end of the day - not one truck, Rivian, Cyber, Silverado, nor the new Ford coming in 2 years will be a truck that has the functionality of todays' pickups.
The demand and use of this truck might be enough to convince Ford to not go too radical, but they have to redesign for efficiency and when they do, will be left with a bed you can use?
