Ford F-100 pickup truck implements Eluminator electrification packages – DRIVE

The concept features Avalanche Gray with Cerakote Copper accents, new LED lighting, a charging port on the left front fender and 19-inch aluminum wheels with Michelin Latitude Sport tires.

The characteristics of some American motors are impressive even on paper. And yet we have long been accustomed to the possibility of ordering such a unit “out of the box”. But electric motors have not yet entered into use. Last year, Chevrolet Performance said it was preparing dealerships to install eCrate Connect and Cruise kits. However, what stage the project is at is still not clear. In the meantime, Ford introduced the 1978 F-100 pickup with a twin-engined Mustang Mach-E GT model. The kit is named Eluminator and is available for purchase. More precisely, it was available – the batch had already been sold out.

Using a 43-year-old pickup truck to present the kit aims to demonstrate its versatility. Alas, it was not disclosed how many packages were offered to potential customers at the first stage. We assume that the battery is installed according to the principle of the Chevrolet E-10 restomode – in the back.

In the interior of the car, there are controls for systems from a younger relative. The steering wheel is decorated with F-100 embroidery. Even the vertical touchscreen is in place. It looks bizarre. The armchairs are upholstered in two-tone leather.

The highlight of the kit is that you can electrify only one axle or both at once, as in the shown concept. In the first case, you will get 285 hp at your disposal. and 430 N • m. In the second – 480 “horses” and 860 Newton meters. Then, of course, the traction will be distributed to all four wheels. For a set from the first delivery, the Yankees asked for $ 3900 (276,000 rubles). However, it should be borne in mind that the traction inverter, control system and battery were not put into the “box” … For comparison, GM specialists announced eCrate as a turnkey kit. By the way, it consisted of 90% Bolt filling. Perhaps Ford will change something in the second release of the package, which is already being prepared.
