Is The Ford F150 Raptor Really More Economical Than a Ford F150 Lightning?

From Transport Evolved.

Last year, not long after we purchased our Ford F150 Lightning Lariat Extended range, Tyler Hoover, of @HooviesGarage made a video complaining about his own experiences with his Ford F150 Lightning Standard range. And, disagreeing somewhat with his statements, we made our own debunking video countering his original claims – a video you can see here:

But now he’s at it again – and this time, we just had to say something. No, the Ford F150 Raptor R really is NOT more economical than a Ford F150 Lightning.

We explain why…
