Ford has been working hard behind the scenes to develop the world's first mass-produced, mainstream electric pickup truck. That development is now to the point where Ford is ready to start showing off a bit. This week, Ford's chief engineer for the F-150, Linda Zhang, hooked up the test mule to ten double-decker rail cars. She then tugged that train 1,000 feet. To add a bit of drama, she then loaded up 42 F-150s into those rail cars and did it again. Clearly, electric trucks will be tow monsters.
Ford is one of the best-positioned automakers to advance its fleet with electric drive. Ford is now a partner with not only Rivian, who is developing a luxury EV pickup, but also with VW. No other automaker has as much to lose by falling behind in the EV transition, and no other automaker seems better positioned to profit from EVs when they are finally ready for the masses.

Good evening everyone! This is my first posting on the forum!
I’ve got a 2011 GMC 2500HD 6.0 that has visited 2 tuners in the central Texas area. I have a TSP VVT2 cam, 3600 converter, forged internals, And exhaust, with more to come soon.
I have been told by these shops that my truck could not be dialed in like it needs to be due to missing airflow tables on HPtuners. Supposedly the 2011 HD’s have a odd computer that has to be torque based tuned.
I am having idle problems... pulling up to stop lights and turns the truck will die 8/10 times, but starts right back up.
Anyone know a way around this hiccup? These shops have gotten it to the best they could, which still is not enough obviously.
2009 Avalanche 1500 - Kinda odd - the compressor never turns on when the 'fresh air' light is on., Pressing the recirc kicks on the compressor. Doesn't get really cold though. low side at about 45, high side at 195. Wondering if I have more than 1 issue. Lines get cold, seem fine. Lots of condensation - when sitting in humid conditions plenty of water coming off the lines. Plenty of air, just not ice cold, only when in recirc mode though. Wondering if maybe blend doors are partially open so not doing a full recirc. Driver and passenger side are both the same temp though. Any ideas?
