    I have three vehicles. The NEWEST is my 2001 RAV4 with 150k on it that I use as my DD. 1999 Landcruiser with 250k miles is the family hauler/roadtrip vehicle. 1997 Tacoma with 104k miles is my fun truck (supercharged and lifted). I think the new 300 series Landcruiser is going to be $100k. It's bonkers. I paid $135k for my house.

    So, found out last night that they aren't building these for dealer inventory. You have to order one, sale be final to even think about getting your hands on one.

    Kinda sucks really.

    Before you hitch an Airstream to your electric truck and set out to circumnavigate the country, you need to understand this: With the largest available battery pack, a fully charged 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning electric truck has less energy onboard than a regular F-150 with four gallons of gas in its tank.
    Yikes.

    My friend has one. I've driven it several times and am impressed with its gadgetry but I'd never own one.

    it's fast. So fast that I had some 2x4s and schluter tile edging in the bed (propped up on the tailgate) and they all dumped out the back end with a quick stab of the throttle. Haha

    Question

    How Far Can a Gas Truck & an Electric Ford Lightning Go Towing the Same Camper On ONE Fill-up?

    I drove one of these and it was really fuckin nice. Super fast, quiet, comfortable. I mean it's a great daily driver if you're in the market for a ridiculously expensive daily with *some* cargo capacity that will never go very far. As it will be for all battery powered "utility" vehicles. And I'd personally like 1 BEV just to have a car I can use to avoid stopping for gas entirely inside a defined distance. But for that money? Uh, no.

    Gonna be a long, long time before you can buy a reasonably priced BEV vehicle that'll tow anything any kind of distance.
