Until recently, electric vehicles were mostly small and unremarkable. But over the last few years, more and more automakers have been releasing electric SUVs, and now electric trucks. Ford is ready to hop on the electric truck bandwagon with its first-ever fully electric-powered truck: the Ford F-150 Lightning.
The upcoming electric F-150 builds upon the strength and power of its combustion-engine sibling. The F-150 has long been a hot seller in the U.S. market thanks to its powerful build and Ford’s expertise at building long-lasting and reliable pickup trucks. When the F-150 Lightning joins the Ford truck lineup, it’ll also add “efficient” to the list of words used to describe the F-150.
The F-150 Lightning will reportedly come with standard 4×4, 563 horsepower, and 775 lb-ft of torque. It’ll also be capable of powering a home or business thanks to the available Ford Intelligent Backup Power feature. The F-150 Lightning will be built on a high-strength steel frame with a maximum towing capacity of around 10,000 pounds. Ford estimates that the F-150 Lightning will offer around 230 miles of range with a standard-range battery and 300 miles with an extended-range battery.
Inside the truck, you’ll find features like BlueCruise hands-free driving technology, Onboard Scales, Phone As A Key technology, and a 15.5-inch portrait touch-screen display. You’ll also be able to use FordPass Power My Trip to make sure you know where the nearest charging stations are on your planned route.
You can reserve a new Ford F-150 Lightning now, and deliveries are set to begin in spring of 2022. Contact Jordan Ford for more details.
