In a ballsy move to remain America’s best-selling truck, Ford switches all their pickups to full battery power!

It’s true that Ford has spent many lunch-less days trying to figure out how to remain the king of the jungle of the truck industry, and it seems they’ve arrived to a logical conclusion. Instead of competing with the other guys on a leveled playing field, they’ve decided to drastically switch their approach.

Shortly after the White House unveiled their plan to tactfully and accurately combat global warming and its terrible effects, Ford announced their plans to also make this world a better place. Ford CEO Mark Fields, who is currently tipped to replace Ben Affleck in the next Batman movie, said that the Blue Oval will immediately stop producing trucks with internal combustion engines.

“We care about the ice caps, we care about the Amazon, and more importantly, I think polar bears are super adorable,” said Mark Fields at the Arizona proving grounds where testing of the latest solar-powered Ford GT was taking place.

Effective January 1, 2018, the Ford F-150 and Super Duty will feature fully electric motors, which will propel the mighty workhorses without the need for fossil fuel. Furthermore, these electric motors will provide more than three times the amount of torque of the current gasoline engines, granting the F-150 a towing capacity of 30,000 pounds, and Super Duty a whopping 50,000 pounds.

According to Ford, the first electric units will roll off the assembly line April 1st of next year, and early deposits are already being accepted at dealerships across the country.
