Looks like it should sell like crazy. Fleet customers going to stocking up

Looks like it'll fit the needs of at least 90% of current truck buyers (that is, people that treat trucks like their cars)

That stupid fucking light bar above the grille

Also this is extremely disappointing. Definitely catering to the people who don't actually need trucks crowd.

^ I noticed that too. Probably a little design caveat to keep the range at a certain minimum that they were hoping to achieve.

^^It's for the city slickers. Some of them need trucks to do things like move mulch, gravel, soil, lumber for DIY, haul trash, groceries, furniture, beach stuff, tailgate stuff, etc. and 5.5 foot beds are adequate for those use cases. Is the disappointing part the cab or the bed?

^^ 5.5 foot bed. It's honestly too small to do most of those things you listed adequately. That said, this will dominate the electric truck market and hopefully Ford will quickly come out with an actual electric truck worthy of commercial/fleet use.

The price points are surprisingly low compared to gas models and they didn't make it look dumb as hell like Tesla or GM (other than that stupid light bar)

I get that, but for me (and I would hope sensible people), I'd rather rent a trailer for anything really big. Any car can tow 500 - 2000 lb, especially around town. (Or just own a foldaway Harbor Freight trailer for 75% of the above). Seems better than lugging around an ill handling 6000+ lb truck 24/7.

But I admit that I don't understand the thought process of the average vehicle buyer in 2021.

Yeah I know.

Still don't get the point of lugging around something 100% of the time, that you only use 5%.

Might be in minority but if i got a truck i’d wanted a truck thats got like dents and bad paint and shit. If i got a new one, i’d never want to use it for rugged type shit where i worried about scratches etc

I started with a true beater (400K miles on a Z71) and appreciated it for what it did. Then I got a kinda newer (used) truck and use it with the "every ding is a badge of honor" thing, so I don't worry too much about it being pretty. That's my plan with this one. Folks will beat up 80K+ trucks, so I guess to each their own. It'll be my daily driver and I'm going true base model here, no bells and whistles since it's a step up from what I got.

automobiles are tools. having one that can haul lots of stuff > having one that goes fast on a track.
