Ford F-150 Lightning SuperTruck EV Demonstrator Revealed

Ford has been on a bit of a roll when it comes to cranking out EV demonstrators over the past couple of years, which are all-electric one-off builds designed to push the limits of what’s capable – and serve as test beds for new tech, too. That list includes the SuperVan, which has already set a class record at more than one big-name event, as well as the off-road-focused Ford F-150 Lightning Switchgear. Now, shortly after teasing its next new EV demonstrator – the Ford F-150 Lightning SuperTruck – that model has officially debuted, too.

Decked out in camo, the Ford F-150 Lightning SuperTruck has been fully revealed as it prepares to begin testing next week for this year’s Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, where the SuperVan set a new class record last year and nearly claimed an overall victory as well. Romain Dumas, who drove the SuperVan last year and is the current Pikes Peak record holder, will pilot the new pickup during the main event on June 23rd, 2024.

Developed in partnership with STARD, the Ford F-150 Lightning SuperTruck features some truly wild aerodynamic bits – just like its van counterpart – which are designed to provide 6,000 pounds of downforce at 150 miles-per-hour. The automaker still hasn’t revealed all of the technical specifications of the SuperTruck – nor its powertrains details – but those should follow in the coming days and/or weeks.

Regardless, the purpose of the Ford F-150 Lightning SuperTruck and SuperVan’s runs up Pikes Peak is to test all-electric technology and use those insights to shape software calibrations and battery cell chemistry for future production vehicles, as well as future race programs.

      It’s just R&D with a good dose of promotion and advertising. And, a some bragging rights if it’s successful in the venue it’s designed to conquer. You’ll understand better when you establish your own automobile company.
