This is America. At least that’s what many passionate F-150 owners would say in defining their trucks. It’s been an icon of freedom, functionality, lifestyle, not to mention the best selling truck in America for 44 years. That is an impressive legacy, and it’s a hard balance between needing to improve and adapt to modernity while keeping the status quo of almost a million new customers a year. With the all-new 2021 model, they have done well.
Ford has revived the infamous Lightning name. Originally attached to the SVT F-150 Lightning in the 90s, it is now the designation for the all-electric F-150 line coming in 2022.
While it doesn’t abide by the norm that trucks have to look like they belong on a work site, if the Limited were to be caught in that scenario, it would scream ‘CEO’.
