The All New, All Electric, Ford F-150


The Ford F-150 has been in production for many years, and it has undergone some serious changes in that time. But this is perhaps the biggest change the truck has ever seen. The Ford F-150 is going electric. Tesla, one of the leaders in the electric car business has already developed an electric semi and are working on their own pickup truck, but this is Ford we are talking about, not Tesla. Ford, The all American, tough guy truck brand. This shows how the entire car business is making a shift into electric vehicles and leaving the old gas powered vehicles behind. It is probable that the Electric Ford F-150 would debut in 2020 as a 2021 model vehicle.

This relates to engineering because it involves experimenting in mostly uncharted territory. It also involves transforming something old into something new which is always a cool thing to see.
