Live Ad with an automotive company marks a first for the show

DEARBORN, Mich., May 20, 2021 – The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon discussed the exciting all-electric 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning during a Tonight Show segment on Tuesday, May 19th on NBC. Fallon, talking with the show’s announcer Steve Higgins, commented on the truck's targeted mid-4-second 0-60 mph acceleration* with the extended-range battery and joked about the name and possible uses for the massive front trunk – called a mega power frunk.
