The Ford F-150 Lightning Switchgear, a collaborative creation by Ford Performance and RTR Vehicles, is a groundbreaking concept that underscores the potential of electric vehicles, particularly in the realm of off-road performance. This innovative truck is based on the popular F-150 Lightning and aims to push the boundaries of electric vehicle technology.
A notable aspect of the F-150 Lightning Switchgear is its performance. While maintaining the F-150 Lightning’s original dual-motor, 580hp and 775 pound-feet of torque all-wheel-drive electric powertrain, Ford Performance has focused on enhancing other features to boost its off-road capabilities. The truck features a custom chassis with a double wishbone front and a multi-link rear suspension, equipped with high-grade Fox 3.0 internal-bypass dampers, ensuring superior off-road performance.
The vehicle’s design incorporates carbon composite parts, contributing to weight reduction without compromising strength and durability. The exterior boasts a unique Ford Performance 2024 livery, giving it a distinctive and robust appearance. For tackling rough terrains, the F-150 Lightning Switchgear includes 37-inch Nitto Ridge Grappler tires, providing exceptional traction and durability. The truck’s increased ground clearance further enhances its off-road prowess.
Additional off-road enhancements include steel fabricated rock rails, a front skid plate, and limit straps, all designed to ensure the truck can navigate challenging terrains effectively. These features combine to create a vehicle that is not only powerful and resilient but also showcases the versatility and potential of electric vehicles in demanding conditions.
