As we reported yesterday, a giant projector screen has been set up at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, which will display tonight’s reveal of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. The massive screen underscores the importance of the unveiling of the first-ever all-electric Ford F-150, though this isn’t the first time Ford World Headquarters has been used to celebrate something, as the automaker marked its Le Mans win back in 2016 in a similar manner.
Regardless, for those in the area, this is certainly the best way to view the F-150 Lightning’s reveal, which will also be broadcast across a number of social media platforms, including Ford’s YouTube channel, Twitter, and Facebook page, as well as physical locations like Times Square in New York and Las Vegas Boulevard.
Ford is rightfully making the F-150 Lightning’s reveal a big deal, as this is arguably one of its most important launches in years. The automaker must convince fleet customers and traditional truck buyers that electric trucks are superior to ICE-powered pickups, both in terms of capability and maintenance costs.
Ford has already said that the F-150 Lightning will be the most powerful F-150 in its current lineup, with the most torque of any F-150 ever built. It also promises that the EV will be far cheaper to operate than its counterparts, which is a common characteristic of electric vehicles in general.
