  • Ford debuted the F-100 Eluminator concept at this year’s SEMA aftermarket show.
  • It debuts the first use of the Eluminator electric crate motor, using a dual-motor setup producing the same 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque as the Mustang Mach-E Performance.
  • The electric crate motor is available to purchase for $3900.

    Earlier this year, Ford announced its first electric crate motor called the Eluminator: a 281-hp electric motor from the Mustang Mach-E GT. Now Ford is giving the world an example of what the Eluminator can be used for at this year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas with it used on a 1978 F-100 pickup.

    However, the F-100 Eluminator concept uses the same dual-motor electric powertrain from the 2021 Mustang Mach-E GT Performance, which Ford claims will reach 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. The two motors make a combined 480 horsepower and 634 pound-feet of torque. The version you’ll be able to buy from Ford makes 281 horsepower and 317 pound-feet. Of course, the electric motors aren’t the only electric hardware that’ll need to be installed—the Mach-E GT’s 88.0-kWh battery pack provides the juice.

    The concept truck was built by MLe Racecars and the Roadster Shop, and it’s finished in Avalanche Gray with copper accents. A set of 19-inch wheels are wrapped with Michelin Latitude Sport tires, and it has an aggressive stance, nailing the retro look. The interior features avocado-tanned leather and a billet aluminum dashboard with the 15.5-inch center touchscreen from the Mustang Mach-E.

    Ford’s production electric pickup, the F-150 Lightning, will go on sale next year. In the meantime, the Eluminator electric crate motor is available to purchase online now for $3900, and it’s street legal in all 50 states. We can’t wait to see the EV conversions people come up with.
