Everything We Know About the Ford F-150 Lightning

June 20th, 2021 by

By now you’ve probably heard something about the all-new, all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning. If you’re looking for more details, here’s everything we know.

Power

If you think electric vehicles can’t be powerful, the Ford F-150 Lightning will make you reconsider. With its standard-range battery – and two electric motors – this pickup will give you 426 horsepower.

If you opt for the Extended-Range battery, that goes all the way up to 563 horsepower. Both engines offer 775 lb-ft of torque. An automatic transmission comes standard.

Towing and Hauling

With all that torque, you’d probably expect the Ford F-150 Lightning to have great towing and hauling ability, and you would be right.

While the model with the smaller battery will let you tow up to 7,700 pounds, the bigger battery increases that to 10,000 pounds. The maximum payload for both is 2,000 pounds.

Driving Range

When your Ford F-150 Lightning is fully charged, you will be able to drive up to 230 miles with the Standard-Range battery. The Extended-Range battery will let you drive up to 300 miles.

Both can be charged up to 80 percent in about 40 minutes at a DC Fast Charging station.

Tech and Safety

Like all other new Ford models, the Ford F-150 Lightning comes loaded with advanced features. Standard tech amenities include an infotainment system with a 12.0-inch touchscreen, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay™, and Android Auto™.

Standard safety components include automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and lane-keep assist.
