Ford has announced plans to make a new electric truck to go on sale starting in 2025, however, the automaker has not disclosed further details regarding the truck. 

The report comes from Automotive News and notes that the new electric truck will exist alongside an electric Ford Explorer, due in 2024, and the automaker’s other EVs — the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning. Ford CEO Jim Farley teased the new truck back in April, indicating the company would build it at the upcoming Blue Oval City campus in Tennessee.

The electric truck will feature an “all-new” nameplate and won’t be a redesigned F-150, Farley said. Automotive News expanded on speculation around the truck, writing that it could be a “distinctly styled full-size pickup under the F-Series umbrella” aimed at retail buyers, while the F-150 Lightning would be focused on commercial sales.

As for the electric Explorer, the Automotive News report reiterated Ford’s plan to launch production by the end of 2024 at the company’s Oakville, Ontario factory. Ford scrapped a previous plan to build the Explorer in Cuautitlan, Mexico, alongside the Mach-E. The Oakville factory built the gas-powered Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus but will be converted to an EV-only plant, per Automotive News.
