Ford has announced that the upcoming F-150 Lightning pickup has passed two weeks of winter testing in extreme cold weather. The automaker says its engineers spent two weeks in Alaska, in 30-degree temperatures below zero, to adjust the Lightning pickup. The fine tuning included improved performance on low grip surfaces such as snow and ice.
Ford calls the low-mu test “testing”. The transmission evaluation was specifically designed to examine how the electric transmission controls power delivery to the wheels on winter driving surfaces, including snow and ice. Tests included driving the truck on loose, packed snow, solid ice, half ice and half concrete, and other surfaces.
According to powertrain engineers, the car can coordinate two engines to work together to transfer torque to the ground to give owners confidence on snow and ice. The Lightning comes standard with twin engines and always in 4WD, selectable drive modes and a lockable rear differential.
