News: Ford Takes the new F-150 Lightning on TFLtruck's Ike Gauntlet - World's Toughest Towing Test - The Fast Lane Truck

Ford continues to put the upcoming 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning EV pickup truck to the test before it goes on sale this spring. This story is focused on trailer towing. Ford says they took F-150 Lightning test vehicles with heavy trailers into the heat of the summer on the Davis Dam grade, and in the cold of the winter on TFLtruck’s Ike Gauntlet™ – the world’s toughest towing test.

TFLtruck was not involved in these pre-production development tests. One of our viewers (Zack Whiting) did capture these prototype trucks starting their Ike Gauntlet™ route in Boulder, CO (which is where TFLtruck HQ is located).

Take a look at the image above that shows the gauge cluster. At this time, Ford F-150 Lightning is the only EV pickup truck manufacturer that shows the driver the truck’s battery and motor temperature/state. This information is important to see whether the drivetrain components are being worked too hard or whether the batteries are in the right state to receive maximum charging.
