Heard about the new Ford F-150 Lightning? This game-changing pickup will be the first of its kind: a completely electric F-150 truck. While we don’t have all of the information yet, we do know some of the exciting details.
Every Ford F-150 Lightning comes with two electric motors. With the Standard-Range battery, you will get 426 horsepower. That climbs to 563 horsepower with the Extended-Range battery. Either setup will give you a whopping 775 lb-ft of torque.
Range and Charging
With the Standard-Range battery, the Ford F-150 can go up to 230 miles on a full charge. The Extended-Range battery can get you up to 300 miles.
While you can use a 110- or 220-volt outlet to charge your truck, a DC fast-charging station can charge it up to 80 percent in just 44 minutes. This pickup has also been designed to work as a backup generator that can supply electricity to a home for up to three days.
Towing and Hauling
With the Standard-Range battery, the Ford Lightning can tow up to 7,700 pounds. If you go with a truck with an Extended-Range battery, you will be able to tow up to 10,000 pounds.
As for hauling, the maximum payload for both is 2,000 pounds. For the time being, the Ford Lightning will only be offered as a Crew cab with a 5.5-foot bed.
