All-Electric F-150 Prototype: Tows 1M+ Pounds | F-150 | Ford

  • Published on Jul 23, 2019
  • We’ve confirmed we are bringing an all-electric F-150 to market. Now, we’re showing you the capability you asked for by having it tow more than 1 million pounds.* This is Built Ford Tough.
    *The F-150 battery-electric prototype is towing far beyond any production truck’s published capacity in a one-time short event demonstration. Never tow beyond a vehicle’s towing capacities. Always consult the Owner’s Manual.

    The downward force is 1M+ but the actual horizontal force required to pull it is much less because it is in rails.

    Any truck can do this and if you can left 2k pounds you can do this without help and if you know physics you can make it move with the weight of a golfball

  • Craig Alberhasky

    Not much call for a pickup truck to pull a train with a rubber band. More impressive would be that truck hauling down the highway for 400 miles at 75 mph on one charge and then pulling into a charging station for a 15 minute recharge.

    What ratchet strap is that? Can you get them at Walmart?

  • jordy king
    jordy king 17 days ago +1

    I mean it’s impressive and all but it’s still on wheels and on a level surface. And I kinda curious how they got them to stop and even move with there being no air hooked up to them thus unlocking the air brakes. Just saying...

    Just seeing that there was zero tire spin tells you that pretty much any other pickup could do the same thing.

    I love the gimmick! I'm sold! But Ford is going to have to include the optional outer sound system to make it as loud as a V8 with a muffler delete in order to sell it to a lot of guys.

    Let's see it pull a weight sled with only 29,000 pounds on it. Won't do it. Physics is a science, marketing is a scheme.

    While the truck may or may not be able to pull 1 million pounds I have a hard time believing that tow strap is able to perform that task without some help.

    Can someone do the math and see if when the Toyota Tundra pulled the 300,000lbs space shuttle on tires if that adds up to he more weight then this ford pulled?

  • Derek Anderson
    Derek Anderson 19 days ago

    That's not 1 million pounds. It might only take 10,000 pounds to get a stationary item moving on a flat surface and at that point the math doesn't add up. Pluse a 1 mil pound tow strap? Or chain? Either way a single pull strap or chain wont hold 1 mil pounds.

  • Dan Man
    Dan Man 19 days ago

    I’d believe this if I could see the whole train the whole time and all the trucks loaded in plus going to the store and recording buying the strap all the way to the site
