Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

This rig looks like an F-150 because it is an F-150. The body is the same as what's fitted to conventional models.

You can get the Lightning with a SuperCrew body and a 5.5-foot bed... that's it.

Unlike regular F-150s, this one's grille is solid and it features a prominent lightbar.

Inside, the Lightning's interior looks suitably swanky.

The cabin's biggest change is the addition of a new 15.5-inch touchscreen.
