The F-150 Lightning shares a lot in common with its gas-fueled brother. But Ford’s upcoming e-truck has a few tricks other than an electric motor and battery.

It adds a lockable, weatherproof storage compartment to keep things you don’t want in bed or in the cab.

Personally, I could see how big the frank really is. It is massive.

At just over 14 cubic feet, it can hold as much as the trunk of a Honda Civic.

A photo of the underside of the hatch indicates that the Franke can hold two golf bags.

I was able to confirm this through a series of rigorous scientific tests.

The floor of the frank is rubberized to keep things from moving around too much.

There are also a handful of tie-down points…

And some hooks on grocery bags and the like.

The entire grill area of ​​the EV is raised along with the hood, which makes loading and unloading easy.

You’ll find another small storage area under a panel in the floor of the frank.

Stick that panel into several slots in the floor, and it turns into a divider for organizing groceries or other cargo.

The panel is reversible. It has spots for beverages on one side and a rubberized surface on the other to match the rest of the interior.

If the frunk ever gets dirty, you can take it out thanks to the drain hole in the floor.

The drain hole also means that the lower cargo area of ​​the frunk can double as a cooler.

The Franke has four 120-volt outlets with USB and USB-C plugs, so Ford has a slightly ridiculous name for it: the Mega Power Franke.

The Frenk provides up to 2.4 kW of power, which is enough to drive a jackhammer and a concrete mixer simultaneously. Or, according to Ford, on the more fun side of things, a movie night with speakers, a popcorn machine, and a projector.

There are lights on the ceiling that can illuminate an in-frank workstation.

There’s a button to turn off the lights if, for example, you want to keep the campsite pitch black.

The Frank can be opened and closed via an app, Lightning’s touchscreen, and an external button.

If the normal opening height of the frunk makes it out of reach, you can ask it to open at a lower height by moving it to your preferred position and pressing the close button.

You can also manually close the frunk by dragging it down, which is a nice touch.

Because although all of the Frank’s neat quirks and technical features are great, at the end of the day I’m sure many people just want a storage area they can easily open, chuck some stuff in and close with ease. can.
