Ford seems to be marketing the lightning to fleets for business owners and ignoring the farmers. I have a small rural Florida farm and am an early adopter of solar and driver of a Chevy Bolt. I have an Silverado 2500 for my farm and towing vehicle. I was attracted to lightning for the backup power ability to run a 240v pump for my livestock. I have a portable generator but the f150 would be easier for quick short term use. I like the Pro for farm use much more than the more expensive models but need the 240v of the extended range or at least the 240v electric box. This is what most farmers need in an electric, but most of us don’t need a fleet of 5. I am not in any rush for delivery, have a Cybertruck reservation and will see what Chevy offers in January, but would really prefer the Pro model If I can get a 240v power source
Have a farm as well and just ordered the XLT SR with the optional 9.6 Kwh pro power in the bed and will use the 30 amp 240 volt bed plug as backup for my 11.4 Kwh home solar system. The sticker eas only about $56k as the Pro was sold out on round 3.
