Are you a truck guy? I know I am. I have been one ever since I was a little kid when my dad brought home a Ford F-150. That truck was our thing. Dad used to take me hunting and fishing in that truck. We were either hauling our beagle to go rabbit hunting or hauling the boat to catch some bass. Either way, we loved that truck.

Trucks have come a long way over the years. Back in the day, only people who had a job where they needed a truck were usually the only ones who had one. Now there are trucks in all shapes and sizes. There are even luxury trucks now while some are being used as grocery getters.

Ford has been building trucks since 1948 but it wasn't until 1975 that the Ford F-150 was created. The F-150 has been standard for truck owners all over Michigan and around the country ever since.

I see stacks of them on 131 to and from work each day so Michiganders love their F-150s.

With everything that is man-made, there are changes that are made over time. In 2021 Four announced the arrival of the F-150 Lightning which is fully electric and from the video above these are beautiful trucks.

Many people put in orders for the F-150 Lightning was the truck was introduced. Inflation has caused the making of parts to go up not to mention the gas prices are up to move the parts and trucks around the country, it's only natural that the price is going up.

According to FOX 17, Ford announced they have increased the MSRP for the F-150 Lightning somewhere between $6000 and $8500 per truck. So if you plan on making a reservation for one of these bad boys the new starting price begins at $46,974.

I recently picked up a new truck and if this gas doesn't calm down anytime soon, I may be making a trade for an electric truck and this F-150 Lightning currently has my full attention.
