However, the engineers faced several problems making the mega frunk a reality. The challenges they faced included constructing an asymmetrical frunk and adding a drainable floor, a waterfall hood design that customers wanted.

As Ford F-150 Lightning Chief Program Engineer Linda Zhang said, F-150 Lightning electric pickup’s 'Mega Power Frunk' is one of those features that reshape what vehicles can provide to customers. "Its sheer size, ample power supply, drainable floor and open and close system that opens with the touch of a button make it frunking awesome!," she said.

Ford F-150 Lightning's frunk offers 400 litres of cargo volume, which is similar in capacity to that of a typical midsize sedan's trunk. The electric truck's frunk has a payload capacity of 182 kg. The automaker claims that it wanted to fit two golf bags and permanent lockable storage in the frunk while designing the electric pickup truck. Clearly, the automaker has been able to achieve much of that.
