Folsom drivers love their trucks, which is why you see so many driving Ford models. This is because Ford has been one of the leading truck manufacturers since it introduced its first pickup over 100 years ago. Ford is also popular among Folsom because it keeps innovating with its models, adding safety, comfort, and convenience features like Ford Co-Pilot 360 active driver assistance systems and its SYNC infotainment platform. However, the most cutting-edge innovation in recent years was the introduction of the Ford F-150 Lightning in 2022. This is Ford’s first battery electric vehicle (BEV) pickup truck, giving drivers the great performance and capability in an F-150 pickup truck that no longer needs gasoline.

Why the Ford F-150 Lightning Is the Perfect Truck for Folsom Drivers

If you call Folsom home, then you are probably someone who does a great deal of driving. Whether you are going to a job site, taking your kids to school, or heading over to one of Folsom’s beautiful parks, you want a truck that can get you around town without having you break the bank, filling up the tank. This is why an F-150 Lightning makes sense for Folsom drivers. As a BEV, the Lightning doesn’t use a single drop of gasoline. Its pair of AC synchronous electric motors are powered by a powerful lithium-ion battery pack, so you never have to stop at a service station again unless you want to pick up a pack of gum.

The F-150 Lightning gives you a choice of different battery packs, so you can decide if you want a standard-range truck or prefer one with a longer range, which can come in handy if you go on long drives for work. Even though it doesn’t use a conventional gas engine, the Lightning still delivers the towing and hauling capabilities you expect in a Ford truck. In fact, the numbers are fairly comparable to those provided by a conventional gas F-150 truck. This gives you the ability to get the toughest jobs done, even if your extent of trailering is towing a boat or camper for an outdoor excursion to Folsom Lake.

Like most Ford models, the F-150 Lightning comes with a great choice of trim levels. This allows you to choose which features you want on your truck. This includes things like seat fabric and the size of the SYNC infotainment system’s screen. This allows you to configure your truck and truly make it your own.

Common FAQs About EV Maintenance

We get many questions from our Folsom customers who are considering making their next Ford an EV like the F-150 Lightning. Here is a sample of some of the most popular ones.

Are EVs Completely Maintenance-Free?

There are certain parts on an EV that need to be serviced from time to time; however, EVs have fewer moving parts than conventional gas-engine vehicles. As a result, they can be cheaper to operate and service.

What Are Some Routine Maintenance Items on an EV?

Like all vehicles, an EV rides on a set of wheels wrapped with tires. These tires need to be rotated about every 5,000 miles. This will allow their treads to wear evenly, increasing the number of miles you can get out of your set. There are also a number of fluids like brake fluid and windshield wiper cleaner that need to be checked and topped up.

Also, there is a cabin air filter inside the HVAC system on your vehicle that needs to be replaced to keep the air quality good. Even though you will use the brakes less on an EV than on a conventional gas vehicle, your brake pads could wear down, and the brake fluid can deplete over time. You should try to have this checked out every time you go in for service.

What Specific Maintenance Do EVs Need?

The most critical part of an EV is the battery pack. The F-150 Lightning has a battery pack in the lower frame that is made up of a series of cells. While they can have an active life of up to 15 years, depending on driving and weather conditions, they should be periodically checked to ensure they are properly holding charge. You can also lengthen the life of your EV’s battery cells by not allowing them to become fully depleted or fully charged and avoid over-reliance on DC public fast charging stations. You are also going to need to make sure the cooling system on your Lightning is working properly. This includes maintaining a proper level of coolant.
