That’s why you’ll often find someone at the front of a Lightning, clacking away on a laptop, making a smoothy at a campsite, or using the socket to power a grinder. Ford wants to make spending time in front of the frunk more pleasing by throwing some shade.
In the Lightning, the hood and grille are connected, and lift as one unit. The angle between the hood and the blocked-off grille is fixed. In Ford’s patent for a frunk with more headroom and shade, the application mentions adding a rotating assembly to the grille so it can move in a direction away from the ground surface when open.
As you can imagine, having the ability to move the grille upward will create more headroom, which has multiple benefits, including less chance of bumping your head against the body when loading or unloading kit. You can also adjust the angle of the grille as the sun moves, keeping your head and shoulders out of direct sunlight.
