Does a Ford F-150 Lightning or it’s Silverado equivalent provide a good alternative to a Tahoe/Suburban SUV if you need the secured storage/hauling capacity, but do not need the third row seat?

If you look at the Ford F-150 Lightning EV, what used to be the engine compartment is now a 14.1 cubic foot trunk with a weight capacity of 400 lbs. With the cargo capacity of the trunk and the interior of the cab, are we better off with a pick up bed which would allow the hauling of “messy” items? I know one downside of the Ford pick up bed is that it is 5.5 feet long.

I think that the new EV pick ups — especially the mainstream ones, may provide alternatives to the large SUVs.

I’d put my money on shared frame architecture and Suburbans following suit. I’d love the new Rivian SUV over my Suburban in current form. Electric Motors > AFM Tom foolery!
