Watch TFLtruck Drive a Ford F-150 Lightning to the Top of Alaska

It sounds difficult because it very much was.

We’re a little late to the party on this one, but it’s worth sharing all the same. The guys at TFLtruck are in the midst of a video series testing the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning’s capabilities as a long-haul overlanding rig. And they’re not just talking about a half-day cruise to a state park. No, they’ve taken on the challenge of driving from Boulder, Colorado, all the way to Dead Horse, Alaska, the furthest north point you can get to by car in the US.

As ill-advised as venturing into the Alaskan wilds with limited range and power infrastructure might sound, it is impossible to argue with the scenery.TFLtruck

That means that once they get past the contiguous United States, they’ll have to find ways to charge the Lightning with Alaska’s limited charging infrastructure. And we thought Knoxville, Tennessee, was bad. To make the journey just slightly easier, the crew took a ferry from Bellingham, Washington, to Haynes, Alaska. But that doesn’t mean the trip was anything approaching easy.

The route from Boulder, Colorado, to Deadhorse, Alaska, is long, to put it mildly.TFLtruck

Once the relative safety of the contiguous US stopped, things got hairy pretty quickly. We’ll save you any spoilers. The best thing to do is to check out the video on the TFLtruck YouTube channel. We picked up with episode four, so you might want to go back to the beginning for the full effect.
