I can find lots of ford sites and news articles talking about the 14.1 cubic feet (400 liter) size of the frunk, and how it can hold 400 lbs. But, for planning out some uses, I would really like to know the real dimensions. So far I haven't been able to find a cad style drawing, or any kind of dimensioned photo. Anyone got anything like that?

Great ask!

I also haven't seen the physical dimensions of this space spelled out anywhere. However, we can use some known knowledge and make some educated assumptions.

What we know:
It can hold up to two golf bags side by side.
- A typical golf bag without clubs in it is 36"x12" with clubs it can get up to 50" in height.
The width of the truck is 80" not including mirrors.

Knowing the standard dimensions of these and making educated guesses while using the picture below, the frunk is roughly 54" at its widest, 30" at its deepest, 20"-25" in height.

I went out and found a picture of the frunk holding two golf bags in it.

Great idea to look at those golf bags and a nice rough analysis. I found a graphic from ford that is a missed opportunity from them to give some of this info. I took your image and used a tool I use at work to scale part of the truck that is in both images, based on the golf bag.

This let me scale any dimension on the frunk that I want. Not saying its good or bad, but there are a lot of bends and slopes in there. I was particularly interested in the usable flat area, so if I put in a hard recentuglar object that couldn't bend around the curves...

For curiosity I grabbed the sq-in areas of the bottom.

Now next time someone is googling Ford F-150 Frunk Dimensions, they should find this. Its still rough, I have to assume ford has some of those dimensions hitting whole numbers, but this should be in the ball park. I'll try and remember to update it when I have my truck IRL or maybe someone else will do just that. Hopefully we can find something from ford at some point. I attached the pdf with the editable dimensions, and anyone using Bluebeam can change the scale as they like as well.

I’m hoping to fit my ARB fridge and a second 12v battery in the frunk. The ARB is just under 27”, so it seems like a maybe if I put it right in the middle parallel to the frame rails. If I swapped to a Dometec fridge it opens on the long side, meaning it could go across the back of the frunk. The Dometec would also be a better fit in my Bronco.

If you haven’t had a truck fridge you should get one, complete game changer. I used to commute and stay in a different city about 45 weeks per year, my wife would pack all my meals for the week in the fridge so I never had to stop at restaurants. It was saving me $200+ per week and I was eating healthier food. Fortunately I don’t commute like that anymore but we still love the fridge. My wife loves being able to go to the stores without having to run home for the frozen stuff. I like not having to stop at a convenience store or having to deal with ice to have a cold drink or keep my lunch chilled. This picture is my setup in the back of my Passat TDI. The second battery would run the fridge for most of a week, but also charged off the car.

Nice setup. Railroads used Dometic propane refrigerators on cabooses. They were tough and survived a lot of abuse. We called cabs the 'crash box.' Sometimes, it was like riding the end of a bullwhip. I'll pay extra money for the brand.

I had a "Save The Manuals" sticker on the back of my 2013 6-speed Fusion. Lightning will be the second vehicle I've ever owned without a clutch pedal. It was a steep learning curve with my first EV.

Just a reminder; for those who don't want to have any battery drain on a long trip this fridge would cause, the lower frunk is basically designed to be an ice cooler. It has a drain!
These fridges draw about 3 amps on startup and average 1.4-1.6 amps per hour at 12v, I don’t anticipate a significant impact on range. If the 12v system is capable of supporting 55 amps there shouldn’t be any issues, but I do plan on a second battery to support the fridge when the truck is parked, although that may not be necessary if the truck is still supplying power while charging. Another interesting point is that the fridge can run off 110v or 12v, I’m not certain if one mode is more efficient than the other.

That is an AWESOME setup andidea.... I don't commute for workBUT wife and I love roadtrip and we always have that issue of having to buy at conviences stops some unhealthy food that leave us hungry anyways. Hmmm so simple yet I hadn't thought about it.

Thanks for sharing it!:)

which makes it easier to use it for shrimp cocktail, and somewhat for chicken wings, not so much for clam chowder. (*)

(*) this is a reference to a long-running joke on one of the Mach-E sites tied to some of the early Mach-E frunk usage pictures including a joke one from Jalopnik:
