Is Ford underplaying the 0-60 time of the Lightning? Ford says it's around 4.5 seconds but I've seen some articles suggest that it's quicker than that.
Road and Track:
"Ford estimates a 0-60 time in the mid-four-second range, but the bigger-battery model—the one Ford had available for a brief first drive—feels quicker. Stomp the pedal at any speed under 50 mph, and the truck will briefly light up the front tires. Keep your foot in it, and you wouldn’t believe how quickly the 106-mph electronic speed limiter comes."
"And that 580-hp, big-battery bruiser? Ford says mid-fours to 60, but it also feels quicker than its estimate. Drop the hammer, and it'll even torque-steer ever so slightly, especially if you have weight in the bed or on the hitch. In fact, put enough weight in the back—like the 1,500 pounds of plywood we hauled, 67 percent of maximum payload—and it'll chirp the front tires any time you stand on the accelerator."
