Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

The company that brought you the electric Ranger is back at it again. At a private investors event, Ford announced its intention to make an all-electric Ford F-150, as both Car and Driver and the Detroit News report.


An annoying trend as of late is carmakers referring to lots of vehicles as “electrified,” including fairly normal hybrids, but Ford made things extra extra clear that this will be an all-electric truck, as the Detroit News reports:

“Here’s what’s going to happen next to future-proof that global juggernaut of commercial vehicles,” Farley said. “We’re going to be electrifying the F-Series, both battery-electric and hybrid. And we’re doing the same for Transit.”

When exactly the truck is going to come out is unknown, nor are specs known, but I’m mostly excited about an EV truck in principle. Torque for days y’all.

Turning Jalopanese, the refreshing choice

I’m curious to see if the bro trucks will ice-out another bro who just needs to charge up his lifted F-150. Quite the conundrum.
