TEN (Transport Evolved News) Ep. 425 – F150 Lightnings Put To Work + Who Likes The Cybertruck?

From Transport Evolved.

Welcome to today’s show!

This week, we’ve got a fair bit of Truck news – including how F150 Lightning owners use their vehicles for more truck-like activities than ICE F150 owners, and why hardened truck fans aren’t all fans of the Tesla Cybertruck. Plus much more, of course (as listed below!)
