Would be nice . MSRP is reasonable. But standard battery has "...up to 230 mile range." That "up to" is ambiguous. WOnder what the real life range is? It won't make it from LA to Bishop, or LA to Gorda. Then they y say at a charging station if takes 44 minutes to charge "...15% to 80%." That would be good if it was 80% but not 15%. So what is it?What you guys think about new Ford Lightning?
I thought it was a Range Rover and a hedgehog.
Hence the joke, "What's the difference between a BMW and porcupine?
A porcupine has the pricks on the outside..."
Sounds like an easy fix. I know aluminum aircraft parts and boat masts have special primer, yellow green in color.The last two Fords I've gotten have had the Aluminum hood issue. I'm done with Ford. The lease on my wife's Explorer is up in three months and the entire lead edge of the hood has the paint starting to bubble up from underneath due to the aluminum issue. Ford doesn't stand behind their products. Did you know the paint is supposed to bubble off of your $43,000 vehicle when its got 28,000 miles on it? Fook Ford.
This isn't mine but my last two Fords have had this problem.
https://techmonitor.ai/technology/chip-shortage-tsmc-samsung-us-uk-taiwan-automotiveFord just announced they are shutting down the F150 production line for a week due to lack needed chip supplies.
the lack of domestic production, in general, is a strategic liabilityhttps://techmonitor.ai/technology/chip-shortage-tsmc-samsung-us-uk-taiwan-automotive
We only produce 10% of the chips we use in the USA. That's seems a strategic liability.
And for the clmate change deniers who think it doesn't affect them-
"Aside from the pandemic, other factors contributing to the shortage include a drought in Taiwan, the worst for 50 years, which has left TSMC and other manufacturers struggling to get hold of sufficient quantities of water, which is crucial in chip manufacturing."
