It delivers the torque almost instantly, working alongside an advanced all-wheel-drive system to deliver a 0-60 MPH time in the mid-four-second region, all while delivering up to 300 miles of range in the top-spec.Ford F-150 All Electric Vehicle Car American Truck Release Information First Look Future Power Speed Performance Towing EV
