Cash registers is nothing new, but there’s a new trend in town: electric box engines, and Ford’s ready to go. On Tuesday, The Blue Oval unveiled one Mustang Mach-E GT-divided electric box motor called Eluminator. To show how flexible the electric driveline is, the guys and girls at Ford even dropped it in a classic F-100 pickup.

The box engine comes specifically from the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition, and one engine extracts 281 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque alone. The automaker used a dual setup to create its F-100 Eluminator concept, which provides a total of 480 hp and 634 lb-ft of torque. It now also has four-wheel drive with the twin-engine setup at work.

Ford said it recognizes the importance of the aftermarket for car enthusiasts, and as the industry embraces more electrification, it wants to be a leader in the EV aftermarket. Hence this new “e-box engine”, as the company called it. The cash register engine is also already available and anyone can buy it. Ford said it is best suited for builders who want a transverse driveline and it should be suitable for really any project.

As for the F-100, Ford worked with the MLe Racecars and Roadster Shop to create it, including a custom chassis. It has a nice gray color with copper accents, while the interior includes avocado tanned leather, and the truck tilts a set of 19-inch wheels with Michelin Latitude rubber.

The box engine sells for $ 3,900 and is now available at authorized Ford Performance dealers and online. Now let’s see what people do.
