Look out Elon Musk.

Ford is entering the all-electric marketplace big time with the Ford F-150 Lightning and the specs are sure to please.

For a starting price of $41,995 (Ok, we'll get this pun out of the way: SHOCKING!), F-150 Lighting buyers will be treated to 426 base horsepower, and an optional performance package will be available that will up the ante to 563 horsepower. The F-150 Lighting will deliver 775 lb-ft of instantaneous torque to the gas pedal. (Oops, what are we going to call that darn thing now - how about just accelerator pedal?)

10,000 pounds of towing capacity. Over the air software updates. Power your home via backup power capability.

Expect the Lightning to go on sale Spring 2022. Over 20,000 of these electrified F-150s are already pre-ordered.
