Ford Lightning vs Cybertruck - A lifelong ford truck owner / EV expert calls it like it is! - EP #4

Another video on the Lightning

With the intent of being as fair and honest as possible. Please provide a link from a legitimate Ford source with any data stating Ford Lightning ranges can and will be greater than 300 miles. The Ford lightning being able to go around 450+ miles would be a game changer and a serious competitor to CyberTruck. It would seem like a no-brainer that Ford would be publicizing this information around the world. I can find nothing, anywhere.

The Tesla Cybertruck is an all-electric, battery-powered, light duty truck announced by Tesla, Inc. Three models have been announced, with EPA range estimates of 400-800 kilometres (250-500 mi) and an estimated 0-100 km (0-62 mi) time of 2.9-6.5 seconds, depending on the model.[11]

The stated goal of Tesla in developing the Cybertruck is to provide a sustainable energy substitute for the roughly 6,500 fossil-fuel-powered trucks sold per day in the United States

    now your video is 3 months old you must feel pretty stupid with your armchair judgements. yes the pro series for $39,900 is coming and now most likely with a $8,500 tax incentive possibly would be $31,400. and Yes I have bought plenty of things for the advertised price, I can understand the price doesn't include tax as you aren't paying the tax to form its to the government. 300 miles WITH 1000 lbs in the bed, I don't see Tesla releasing any kind of estimated ranges like that. and considering Elon has recently stated Tesla will be opening their chargers to other EV's the "poor ford charging infrastructure" is moot and the Biden in fracture plan has billions going towards EV innovation including charging

    It would be awesome if Ford was under promising on the range with the intent to over deliver. Not too sure that’s the case. Of course it looks really bad to go the other way, like promoting unbreakable windows and then actually shattering them onstage.

    @Mary Gutman yes. That’s what I’m saying. EPA DOES NOT TEST VEHICLES w people or payload. Math doesn’t add up. Square front pickups w zero design concern of coefficient of drag don’t complete on range w vehicles that do.

    Since you did this video it is known that that Ford will be aluminum with a steel frame. All Fords will be 4wd. Not sure Tesla will get as much incentive. That said Tesla is much better technology. However am the guy that got a 32k Leaf EV for $13,550.00. So I am counting on the cheap 4wd unit with maybe the long range option. I saw the Ford with the fold up rear seats. That gives a flat area behind the seats. I like your thoughts but don't agree that the base model will be unavailable. I am going out on a limb and saying you will be able to get the base Ford for 43k with 300 miles range. That said if I can get the 4wd Cybertruck for 48k I would much prefer that. Unfortunately my wife wants the Ford because it looks "normal".

    He starts out at the VERY beginning with misinformation. The F150 lighting 300 mile range is loaded up, not optimal. Ford is taking the approach that people use their trucks. Actual mileage will be HIGHER if you're only shuffling people. So right there, he's flat out wrong. Plus, he's obviously very biased, look at his T shirt.... he's bending the facts to make it seem different then it is. I live in Silicon Valley and you cannot get your Tesla X even fixed/repaired. No one that relies on their truck for their income is going to be buying a Tesla. If you check reviews of F150 lighting, when they are showing screens I noticed that one screen had an estimated driving range display that read an incredible 472 miles. because the built in SCALE in bed showed no cargo. F150 Lightnings go through same torture tests as non-EV F150s in Rouge proving grounds in Michigan. I'm from Michigan, and that place is no joke. Telsa also has CUSTOM proprietary charging ports. There will be little to no aftermarket parts for Tesla, lots for F150. Telsa is a niche market, bleeding cash, and over valued. He spends 5min saying Tesla is a real product with a REAL vehicle in BETA, while F150 Lighting doesn't even exist yet. Then 8min later he's showing his comparisons and uses "To early to tell" for anything that Tesla looses (like frunk) because - well Tesla could add a drain, could add outlets.... what is real?? what is BETA??

    Yes. This has been mentioned on the video comments about 100 times. Still doesn’t make it true. And I still don’t understand why Ford themselves wouldn’t list this somewhere on their website. Or mention it during the reveal. The EPA has never and does not add payload or people to its range testing. The good news I guess for Ford is that they are moving ahead with the first stages of Production. So we may know next year what is true and what isn’t.

    Range is not the most important thing. Not even close. Most people (non-commercial) won’t even come close to using the max range on a daily basis. Do you now with your gas guzzler? Do you drive 300 miles per day without stopping? C’mon dude! And if you did, you wouldn’t be looking at an electric vehicle right now. You’d be waiting a few years for them to become more advanced/efficient. This video is dumb. This guy is dumb.

    What is this guy talking about. The Lightning 300 mile range is with a 1000 lb payload. Tesla is notorious for overestimating real world range. I can’t even get 80% of my Tesla’s rated range in the real world. I highly doubt there will be more than a 50 mile real world range difference between the two

    The Ford Lightning was tested with 1000 lbs in the bed while towing a trailer and got 350 miles. Tesla was tested without any payload. So you're basically close to even there. This is based on their preliminary numbers. After watching this video, it seems to be very pro Tesla and bias against the Big 3. The Cyber Truck is not practical, looks hideous and won't sell as much as the Big 3. Ford will sell way more Lightnings over the Cyber Truck IMP, and the big 3 will have a better sales record than Tesla's Cyber Truck. Just wait and see.

    I would love to get a Cybertruck and I might, but right to repair is a major problem. People are getting screwed, when they have an issue with a Tesla. Just like Apple and many other tech companies. The answer should not be, "Buy a new one, because it's too expensive to fix AND you are not allowed to fix it or have a third party fix it." I'm sure you'll be in the same boat with Ford. If Tesla will give us "The Right to Repair", then I would buy one or two in a heartbeat. Obviously great tech and the best vehicles ever, but I don't want to have to drop $20k if something breaks.

    Strange to hear such a spirited and to be honest somewhat redundant comparison between the CT and F150 Lightning. The CT hasn't even been released, the Ford you can actually use now. Surely the first rule of doing any comparisons on products, is that the products actually exist and can be compared?

    I am going to buy a cyber truck. But this comparison is strange. The F150 was rated with 1,000lb load. I don't think the cyber truck was rated with that much of a load. And my tesla's 220miles gets me only 150miles of daily use:( the only thing about truck usefulness is really only about the assory........ and from that cyber trucks will be only a one hit wonder:)

    I think both vehicle are solid products based on what we know now and there is absolutely no clear winner here for everyone. As of this writing, Ford still is eligible for $7,500 federal tax incentives. Their base vehicle starts at $40k and is AWD versus Tesla's RWD. The Tesla bed is 1ft longer while the ford bed sides are flat making things like tool boxes more accessible. I'd argue that Ford's range estimation calculations based on real world driving data are also more Robust than Tesla's, but of course Tesla has the cameras and safety tech baked into all models, which is a huge plus there. That said, neither vehicle has hit production, but the Ford is the one that is looking like a real product. I don't doubt the cybertruck sees a release. The real question is when and in what format.

    The Big 3 have taken advantage of brand loyalty for decades. If all of the badges and branding were removed from both, as ambiguous vehicles, they would compare exactly the same as you did. With the same vehicle winning. The sad thing is that Ford, Chevrolet and Chrysler all had the resources to do the research and development decades ago and squashed it. Read about the EV-1.

    Concerning the look: The first time I saw the Cybertruck, I hated the look. By the end of that day, I started thinking it looks pretty cool. Almost any time Ford has come out with a new body style I have hated it at first look, and then it grew on me. Eventually, the old style ends up looking outdated. The look of the cybertruck is different, that’s all. If people start seeing them on the road, the look will be normalized and eventually the traditional truck look may look outdated altogether.

    F150 range is calculated with 1,000 lbs of cargo in the bed so the 300 mile range is a worse case not less. Those who have driven the F150 have already said the range appears to be significantly more and Ford has no intention of showing the true range at this point in time but with Chevrolet already stating their trucks are expecting 400 plus miles of range it is doubtful that Ford will release a product with less. I will also say that Ford will not relinquish its best selling truck crown without a fight. Tesla hasn't even put the Cybertruck in anyone's hands being their PR event. Tesla's truck is not all that impressive to me at all. You keep talking about how the Cybertruck "is" better when you have no clue and won't have a clue until they are actually produced. I'm holding my opinion until they actually ship. Another issue, Tesla's quality control and build quality is absolutely terrible. From water leaks to massive gaps in body panels or unpainted body panels in vehicles that are delivered to customers or doors that fail to open. And many of these issues aren't repaired after repeated visits from Tesla technicians. Tesla has a long way to go to catch up to even the cheapest internal combustion engine vehicles on the road today when it comes to fit and finish. And the fact that a 50k+ vehicle has worse build quality than vehicles that are selling for 30k should not be acceptable and won't be acceptable once they are no longer the only mainstream option. Tesla has largely gotten by because they were the only game in town for ages but that time is coming to an end and when they no longer have their exclusivity they're going to have to compete on actual quality. That is when it will matter, if they can survive the oncoming competition then they will have accomplished something in my book. I applaud the company for pushing EVS into the mainstream but beyond that I'm not really at all that impressed with them. P. S. Full self driving is a PR stunt, even Tesla's lawyers acknowledge that full self-driving will not be released and those who pay the extra money for the feature are suckers. Sorry but that's just the truth. We will be lucky to see full self-driving in at least another decade.

    I am no expert, but I don't agree with your assessment on the method for connecting your house to your car during a power outage. I believe both trucks advertise several 110V and 220V outlets (that is AC, not DC). That means the vehicle already has an inverter built in. Theoretically, you could rig your home's electrical panel with a 220V plug that connects directly to your truck's 220V outlet.

    I think you didn’t catch that this is complete BS. EPA Doesn’t test with either payload or passengers. Nowhere on any specifications anywhere on Ford website or documentation states range in the 460+. Even if they put 1000 pounds of payload inside a pick up truck, that doesn’t extrapolate to 160+ miles. By the way you’re claiming 364 miles, but the Internet is claiming 460 miles.

    Making comparisons based on things like range and other performance characteristics is totally dependent on how one plans to use them. Ford will fill their niche and Tesla another.

    I took the listed specs from each manufacturer. Not sure how that’s not doing research. Your 1000 pound EPA figure is a lie, misrepresentation and complete BS. The EPA does not test vehicles with payload or people inside. Never has never would. Even if you had 1000 pounds of payload in the back it does not add 160 to 190 miles of added range. This is SEblacks propaganda. Nowhere does Ford state their vehicle goes this far. It’s the single most important feature of any electric car you think they’d have it mentioned on the website. Ford themselves during their big release told the world it goes 300 miles, that’s what we’re going with. Furthermore they built a pick up truck that’s The shape of a brick, which is fine and I have no issue with it but you can’t have your cake and eat it too, you can’t make a box, with a high coefficient of drag and expect it to get long range sorry that just doesn’t work.

    The other reason the Tesla pickup needs to look like it does is aerodynamics. To get the great range they need to push through the air better than than something that looks like a bunch of cinder-blocks. So the old style pickup has to die for an efficient aerodynamic pick-up to rise from the ashes.

    The weight is actually just simple math. If you sitting in an empty EV charged to 80% with over 360 miles of EPA RATED RANGE, you kinda have to know the range fully charged is more. Did Tesla state what their range might be with a payload? And if no, why not…? Tesla is stating THE ABSOLUTE BEST case scenario and we know that. But who is Ford’s customer base, and what does their customer base care about most? Well there you go. But given those stats, the Tesla still might be better. But we won’t know until their booth on the road. But I’m going with the Ford for the better frunk and more utility from what I can see right now. But you can’t beat that supercharger network 🤷🏿‍♂️ And Ford still qualifies for a federal EV tax credit 👍🏿 Have fun with that yulk, you’ve gotta tell us about that thing after a test drive.

    This sounds like some time ago android users were watching apple presentation and all the new features were already implemented into their phone some time ago... but anyway I have to give kudos to Tesla because of this company or the other ones are pushing for electric vehicles

    You know pre orders don’t translate to truck purchases, right? It’s a refundable deposit so it literally costs nothing to make a preorder

    Tesla is honestly behaving like old school Ford. It didn't give the people what they wanted (Faster horses) it innovated and created a new product the consumer couldn't even think of.

    I just simply don't understand how the Cybertruck can have all of these doodads and cost so little. You'd think Ford sourcing materials for the past 50 years would let them come under the wire in terms of price.

    Technology-wise Tesla will win out, but Ford has been building trucks for a long time, Tesla hasn't even build cars that long. I just don't think Tesla will be able to build an overall better truck than ford. Cyber truck is a truck looking electric car, that's how we should look at it.

    I don’t think Tesla will hit the specs they are trying to achieve. In particular with the pricing for the Tri motor. Their current pricing model does not allow the CT to be inserted without a massive restructure. Maybe the 4680 cells will aid in this? Maybe cost of ownership savings is included in that base price? Maybe future tax incentives? Maybe they can get close but I don’t see how they can market it for that price. It just doesn’t fit into the lineup at that price imo.

    Yeah I stopped listening in the first 3 minutes. You are comparing the Cybertruck to the Platinum trim only because you don't believe Ford will dominate the market selling the model that is blatantly advertised commercial. I am a Foreign car guy, supported Honda my whole life but even I have to take my hat off too Ford. By being first and doing a what I have seen so far as a decent job, they just ensured lasting dominance for another 50 years. The Platinum may not be a Cybertruck but look Ford is pulling a Microsoft move here. Their real money will come from bigger contracts. Institutions and companies with fleets will go 100 percent EV far before the civilian driving world will. The Lighting will be the standard truck for State and Federal fleets, barring no serious issues AND private companies will follow suit. Your take on why you are comparing the two, namely that a 40k EV truck won't sell instantly invalidated anything you have to say as an expert. The finance and tech world has been speaking about how quickly the commercial vehicle world will become EV and autonomous and Ford is the first contender to do something about it AND with this money they will no doubt turn it around to make better luxury trucks and cars.

    Also side note, people who inflate the role of features a car should have are not to be listened too. Features, especially when you reach luxury tiers should cater to what you want as a person. One of my fears of commentators on the EV space is they are overselling features to their viewers. If we really want the world to convert to EV sooner than later we need to encourage folks to consider their real life driving habits because SEblacksrs and advertisers are trying to squeeze more money out of you and ultimately scaring tons of people away from EV because they are inflating the role of features such as range, speed, infotainment, etc. Performance is important but price to performance is the name of the game in tandem with features you want for your lifestyle.

    What about parts and dealer support and service? We already know on paper the cyber truck is superior there. But how well will all this tech work in the real world under adverse conditions? Can you even mount a ladder rack on a cyber truck ? I know I can get after market equipment like tool boxes and racks for an F -150.

    The lightning models were never the best towers. They always towed less than the standard f150s. They were also always faster speed machines back in the day. Since the 90s I believe the Lighting models were built for the performance and speed.

    You compared top of the to top of the line trucks. The only reason that I can see someone going with the Ford Lightning over the Cybertruck is actually at the base level. The base level Lariat Lightning is going to be dual motor and 4wd the base model Cybertruck will only be a single motor. I agree that the single motor Cybertruck might never get produced but I have a hunch that the dual motor Cybertruck will be the first to be produced. If Senator Stabenow gets her electric car bill through congress that could put the base level Lariat Lightning under $30,000 and that is a game changer. The beds, both are too short IMO, The Cybertruck could make up for it by having the ramp fold up at a 90° angle to the tailgate when it's down.

    One important thing here is that the Ford truck is real and the cyber truck is not real yet. The cyber trucks number are not final and we all know how Elon over states things, sometimes a lot.

    If you look at the websites, it appears the dual-motor Cyber truck makes a better comparison to the extended range f-150 lightning than the Tri-motor. The base prices are almost the same along with the specs...

    I’ve ordered the CT tri-motor and I ordered the Ford today. I currently have a Model S and Model 3. I find this review to be dishonest and not giving the Ford enough credit although I hate most domestics with the exception of the new Chevy Stingray and the Ford Lightening. I don’t believe the CT will be delivered anywhere near on time at this point but I am confident that Ford will deliver it.
