2023 Ford F-150 Lightning First Drive: The Moment of Truth

When one thinks of work equipment, pickups inevitably come up. This is why United Rentals has reserved no fewer than 500 new Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickups. These trucks will serve both the rental company’s customers as well as its own employees.

Also on order are 30 of Ford’s all-electric E-Transit commercial vans. They too will be used by the company and its clients.
