What’s the Best Electric Truck?

If you’re shopping for an electric truck, there are several appealing choices available to you. From household names like Ford and GMC to an emerging manufacturer called Rivian.

Rivian’s R1T stands out as an exceptional vehicle on the road, possessing sports car-like handling while being capable of traversing off-road trails like no other truck can.

1. Ford F-150 Lightning

Ford’s Lightning all-electric pickup is an excellent way for fleet operators looking to go green without breaking the bank. This all-electric pickup looks and drives like a traditional F-150 but costs $9,000 less to fuel over five years, plus boasting a 9.6kw generator that can power a laptop, lights, portable hot tub and two blenders – perfect for tailgating parties!

The standard 98.0-kWh battery pack offers an estimated driving range of 230 miles; while its larger 131.0-kWh counterpart allows you to travel up to 320 on one charge. Powered by two electric motors capable of producing 580 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque, which enable the Lightning to accelerate from zero to 60mph in under four seconds. However, towing can quickly deplete its battery and make distance estimation difficult; prices start from $55,974 for Pro models.

2. Rivian R1T

Rivian R1T pickups, now available to reserve starting from $68,575, do what Tesla’s Model S sedan did for sedans: They upend expectations about what constitutes a truck.

The truck features a truck bed in front, along with an underbody “frunk” big enough to hold a sleeping bag and an integrated Gear Tunnel to store an optional $5,000 slide-out Camp Kitchen complete with titanium flatware and electric cook stove.

Rivian’s four-motor layout provides instantaneous torque vectoring, enabling instantaneous tire nudges into or out of corners for precise maneuvering on steep trails with loose rocks – useful when driving over steep and loose rock situations that would easily overwhelm fully equipped Jeep Wranglers or Ford Broncos without drama. On pavement, its acceleration was speedy while using significantly less energy than comparable gas-powered vehicles; its battery can even be recharged within three hours at public charging stations.

3. Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla’s CEO Elon Musk is notorious for missing deadlines and over-promising projects, yet one of his truly groundbreaking endeavors has to be the Cybertruck electric pickup truck – offering jaw-dropping specs to rival any exotic supercar on the market today.

The Cybertruck features an angular exoskeleton made of 30x cold-rolled stainless steel that enables it to cover 500 miles on one charge while reaching 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Furthermore, its towing capacity allows it to haul any size trailer imaginable – perfect for hauling anything you could think of!

Inside, the Cybertruck continues the minimalist interior design found in other Tesla vehicles. It comes equipped with a 16-inch infotainment display and adaptive air suspension that can lower four inches for easier entry/exit and improved aerodynamics on freeways or raise up to 16 inches for maximum ground clearance.

4. Hummer EV

Greg Migliore writes: GM’s electric Hummer is both amusing and impressive in appearance. With its massive size and goofy party tricks attracting much well-deserved attention, its monstrous size commands plenty of interest – yet its monstrously fast acceleration – rocketing from zero to 60 in just 3.0 seconds–the same timeframe as Ferrari F12 Berlinetta–it makes maneuvering around off-road obstacles and narrow streets easy while its rear wheel steering allows up to 10 degree swivels either direction for maximum control – both essential factors in its capabilities. Terrain mode also adjusts power distribution and regenerative braking so as to achieve maximum control over every situation

Although this EV may not be as efficient as Rivian R1T or Ford Lightning, efficiency wasn’t its goal; rather, its mission was to demonstrate that electric vehicles don’t need to be dull commuter cars with generic lines and colors; they can instead become powerful road-roaming Rylan Gunstar space fighters capable of giving coal-rollin’ diesel brodozer drivers death stares!
