Massive power that whispers: That’s the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning, Ford’s all-electric pickup powered by 100 percent electricity. Gone are the days when an electric motor meant puttering. The F-150 Lightning’s motor delivers instant, massive torque that can slam you into the seat with rapid, powerful acceleration! It’s SO impressive, the 2023 F-150 Lightning has been awarded MotorTrend Truck of the Year®!
The all-electric F-150 Lightning is basically a mirror image of its gas-powered predecessor, inside and out. So it delivers just like the traditional F-150, both built Ford tough! All Lightning model F-150’s come with two electric motors powered by either of two battery packs. Depending on which battery you go with, you’ll get between 230 and 320 miles on a full charge. With the standard battery, the motors combine to give you a respectable 452 horsepower. The larger Extended-Range Battery delivers a whopping 580 horsepower, and this Lightning is lightning fast: accelerating zero to sixty in four seconds!
The 2023 F-150 Lightning offers the most torque of any F-150, ever. As for max available towing capacity, Lightning can pull up to 7,700 pounds, depending on your battery package.
Every new Lightning also comes standard with all-wheel drive. And its lower center of gravity and independent rear suspension means the ride and handling is stable on a range of road conditions.
And don’t forget the FRUNK: with no bulky engine eating up space under the hood, you get a Mega-Power Frunk instead: 14.1 cubic feet of additional space to store your tools, equipment, luggage- whatever cargo you want, up to 400 liters or 400 pounds of cargo! And it’s wired for power: 2.4 kW of power: 4 120V plus 2 USB ports!
So how’s all-electric fit into your lifestyle? Easily! You can charge your truck at home via standard 110- and 220-volt outlets. You can also juice it at public DC fast-charging stations, where it can go from 15 percent charge to 80 percent in just over 40 minutes!
And get this: This all-electric truck is engineered to serve as a backup generator! Let’s say a storm comes through and knocks out power to your area: the Lightning can provide up to three days of electricity to your average sized house! And with Ford’s exclusive ProPower Onboard, you’ve got an additional available 9.6 kW power to plug into the tailgate- so you can power your camp, your tailgate party, your life! In fact, this truck offers bumper-to-bumper power options, with up to 11 convenient power outlets in cab, frunk and bed!
Inside, smart innovation means the F-150 Lightning is packed with intelligent features, including advanced digital technologies to make working from the road easier than ever. Push a button and the gear selector stows away, transforming to an interior work surface. The improved non-slip tailgate surface and concealed clamp pockets turn your tailgate into a workbench. There are even embedded rulers! And zone lighting illuminates 360 degrees around your truck so nightfall doesn’t stop your progress.
