Jimmy Fallon test drives F-150 Lightning, Mustangs on Metro Detroit visit

Comedian and TV host Jimmy Fallon burned some rubber Friday with Ford Motor Company on a whirlwind visit to Metro Detroit.

The celebrity and former “Saturday Night Live” star did some test drives at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac then dropped by the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn — to the surprise and delight of Ford employees.

Topping Fallon’s Detroit bucket list was a spin in the F-150 Lightning, which the automaker introduced in May. “The Tonight Show” host already owns a gasoline powered F-150 and is thinking about purchasing the electric version, a Ford spokesperson told The Detroit News.

“Fun day at the track and the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, MI surprising our teams building the (F-150),” Ford CEO Jim Farley said on Twitter. “Thanks Jimmy!”
