Ford Lightning Pro - 3 Months Update - 5,000 Miles

Well it's been three months and 5,000 miles since I took delivery of my 2023 Ford Lightning. I just watched a Fox News report from Laura Ingraham about one man's experience with his Ford Lightning. It's actually the same color as mine, but this gentlemen paid more than twice what I paid, and obviously doesn't understand how to use an electric truck. I figured I would provide some "balance" because what was reported today August 14th on Fox News was ridiculous.

First of all, Ford is one of the only companies that has honored their reservation price. They didn't have to but they gave me the original MSRP from when I first ordered which was May 20th 2021. This is such an honorable gesture!

Anyway, I have taken road trips with my Lightning and have had no problems. This is the greatest vehicle I have ever owned. It is fast, dependable, well built, comfortable, smooth and quiet. I know it's an electric truck that can tow huge amounts, but you have to be aware that your range is going to be diminished. We have solar on our house and I rarely have to use a public charger. Even on a public charger, I pay 1/3 what this gentleman was talking about, and my electric bill last month was only $10 through PG&E. If I'm taking a long road trip, I'm going take my wife's Honda CRV. I'm also not going to take a chance by running it down to 12 miles of range!

Even at the new MSRP of around $50,000, this truck is still a bargain. I will update as i spend more time in it. Here's some pics!
