  3. Epa range isn’t the same as real world. The miles to empty on gas fords don’t match up with epa either. It is based on driving history. If the battery had degraded that much, TFL would have mentioned it. TFL may have been using an optimistic 1/2 the range and found a fast charging station close to that. How much the range drops when towing is highly dependent on the trailer. A boat will decrease the range much less than an empty enclosed cargo trailer of similar weight. I’d like to see a follow up taking a boat to Andre’s favorite lake.
  4. I got the railcar numbers right from Ford chat, still no luck

    Extra key fob buttons.

    How about putting a couple user programmable buttons on the key fob. So you can open the garage or gate when you are out walking or riding in another vehicle? Friend or Uber whatever.

    That was cool.
  7. I see, the Lariat indeed has the long range battery but what confused me is that it didn’t start the test with the advertised 320 mile range before tow mode was selected, it was something like 282 or 40 miles less even before the test began. So yes, There’s something wrong with either the battery or Ford’s range software…. however, I agree that towing normally reduces a pickup’s range to about a third so even with the full advertised range, the Lightning still wouldn’t make it to the destination without a charge. Even the 400 mile range of the Lightning EV wouldn’t quite get there….

    I actually used it, and I'm still under the first year subscription. During long trips, one full-time college student would use the car Wi-Fi, the other adult logged in to work through the phone's mobile hotspot. This helped tremendously for the once-monthly trip for medical treatment that was very far away.

    The hotspot isn’t a loss in my opinion. My current phone plan allows me to share my phone as a hot spot. My kids are happy. Beyond the wifi hot spot trial I’ve never activated it, or used it.
  10. That's a good explanation jpd80. In April, Stellantis tried to steal Ford's thunder figuratively speaking when they sent out this twit/tweet around the same time as the F-150 Lightning launch event. As you mentioned, maybe Ford is attempting to prevent Stellantis and other companies from stealing Ford's thunder literally. 😀

    Except how much of it is Ford offering the hotspot functionality as a value-added feature for the owner of the vehicle... ... vs. value-add for AT&T's marketing department, since service is only available through AT&T?

    That seems to be Fords mode of operation lately. Pay more, get less. It’s not a good trend.

    It almost seems like there pretty much building lariat’s lately.😬
  14. Actually the Lightning they own is a Lariet with the extended range battery. And $0.45 per kW/h is ridiculous, but those charge stations and the power drops to supply them aren't cheap either, so someone has to pay for them.

    Did not know that on hot alert so I will let them know that I do now. All I’ve been told is it’s location is Mesquite, Tx, the shipper has it in possession and is delayed, Plant hold-stop ship due to the April 25-May 10 build period with PM Sensor calibration with a July 15 earliest release

    Apparently you’ve been living under a rock the last two years.

    As a former Ford employee of the Kansas City Assembly Plant, I can tell you every plant in the US has shut down the first two weeks of July since the 1982 contract; however, there have been exceptions over the years to the exact weeks plants shut down. The shut down is for plant maintenance, but most importantly for vacation shutdown, as Ford does not practice a calendar leave program for non seniority employees.

    Seems like major maintenance and upgrades would be performed when the plant retools for a new model year.
  19. The latest Toyota Tundra Capstone "Cappuccino" commercial is an example of that,,,, HRG
  20. Or more like Ford grabs a good name before the competition thinks of using it on one of their models…
  21. But that wasn’t the point of this test as TFL used the Lightning with a standard battery.
  22. Thank you so much, When you get a chance the diagrams would be great. Thanks Keith
  23. GM only offers the larger 28 gal tank on regular cabs. Ford starts out with an extra 2 gallons (6 if you get powerboost) and provides a 36 gal option on the 2.7, 5.0, and 3.5eb. Ford has a significant range advantage when towing.

  25. Both manufacturers supply smallish base fuel tanks, mostly because a lot of crew cabs sold are use more like cars with infrequent towing.

    This is when they do major maintenance and upgrades to the plant that can’t be done while it’s running. It’s got nothing to do with it being a union represented facility. These outages are planned way ahead of time and contractors have to be lined up.

  28. Thunder is probably PHEV. That's my guess and I'm sticking to it.
