Ford F-150 Lightning Will Apparently Come With Tesla-Like Infotainment Games

Ford is gearing up to launch the F-150 Lightning on April 26th and it appears the automaker still has a few tricks up its sleeve.

In particular, Ford’s Vice President of Global EV Programs hinted the pickup will come with games that can be played on the infotainment system.

In a Linkedin post, Darren Palmer showed a video of a relatively basic racing game where players seemingly drive a Mustang Mach-E and try to collect coins while avoiding traffic. The coins apparently increase the player’s range, while also giving them points.

The game looks pretty straightforward and it’s played on the truck’s available 15.5-inch infotainment system. Furthermore, driving is controlled by turning the volume knob left or right.

Palmer didn’t say much about the game, but stated “Some cute little games now on the F-150 Lightning. Proving a hit with my kids in final testing…” This suggests the pickup will be launched with a handful of mini-games, which can presumably be played when the truck is in park and occupants have some time to kill.

While games aren’t the most groundbreaking feature, it’s interesting to note Ford will apparently be following Tesla’s lead. The latter automaker is a pioneer in gaming as their Arcade enables owners to play games with controllers, the touchscreen, and the steering wheel. Tesla also offers an assortment of different games ranging from Cuphead to classic Atari titles such as Asteroids, Centipede, Lunar Lander, and Missile Command.
