The Ford F-150 It is the most popular pick-up in the United States so it is not surprising that some manufacturers use it to prove the worth of their products. Tesla already did it with the launch of his Cybertruck and now it is the turn of Lordstown Motors with his Endurance, which has faced the oval model in a drag battle on a wet surface. The result? You can already imagine …
The chosen F-150 is a Lariat EcoBoost 2019 that has a reducer and four-wheel drive, as well as a vigorous 2.7-liter six-cylinder block that develops 325 horsepower. The one in charge of digesting all that energy is a 10-speed automatic transmission that has had to fight to try to send the 542 Nm maximum torque to the ground, while he watched as his rival took victory easily in this tug of war duel in which the both traction controls were off.
Lordstown says the test was designed to highlight the “superior traction” Endurance thanks to its particular configuration of four electric motors located on the wheels of the pick-up. The company went on to say that its green truck has the “power and functionality to match the best vehicles in its class, with better performance, efficiency and safety.”
More than 600 CV
As we say, this pick-up differs from other rivals by the configuration of its four electric motors, one for each wheel. By working together, a total of 608 horsepowerenough to get the Lordstown Endurance to 60 mph (96 km / h) in 5.5 seconds and get over 400 kilometers on a single charge. The maximum torque that this powertrain develops has not yet transcended, nor has the capacity of the battery pack.
It is planned that the electric truck go into production next year and positions itself as a work pick-up rather than a daily use vehicle. The price announced by the company is $ 52,500, that is, about 46,800 euros to change. That said, Ford is working on an electric F-150 that will begin production in mid-2022 and will feature two electric motors that “deliver more horsepower and torque than any F-150 available today.”
