Electric vehicles are the future of the motor industry and Ford is here with a brand new electric truck, the F-150 Lightning. The vehicle manufacturer has given the public a good look at the new vehicle with a livestream, where a lot of information was revealed. Here’s everything you need to know about Ford’s new F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck.
F-150 Lightning price
The F-150 Lightning has an entry model priced at $39,974 USD, which is reported to travel 230 miles on a full charge. There is a mid-series that starts at $52,974 USD that boasts a 300 mile range. The Ford site suggests prices reach up to around $90,474.
F-150 Lightning specs
Ford fired out a lot of specs for the F-150 Lightning, so here are the main points you’ll want to pay attention to. Of particular interest is the speed at which it can reach 60 mph, the horsepower, torque, and towing capacity, as well as the access points for charging devices.
- Battery range of 230 to 300 miles depending on model
- 0-60 in mid-4 second range
- 563 horsepower
- 775 pound-feet of torque
- 10,000 lbs of max towing
- 400 litres of space
- Always 4x4
- 21 charge points around the truck
- Power your house during outages
The last point there is worth noting, especially given the power troubles those in Texas have experienced over the last year. Being able to power your house off of your truck would certainly have made the situation easier. You can learn more about this feature, and many others, on the Ford website.
F-150 Lightning release date
The F-150 Lightning is expected to go on sale in Spring of 2022. Consumers can reserve a truck via the Ford reservation section of the site. A $100 deposit is needed to secure the reservation, so get those details ready!
The F-150 Lightning is no doubt going to be an appealing option for those consumers at the intersection of needing a workhorse vehicle but also wanting to futureproof.

Love everything about it except for the range.
I would love for my next truck to be electric, but I have a travel trailer I tow, so I’m curious what kind of mileage you can get while towing.
Granted I only get about 200 miles per tank while towing now, but it’s a lot easier to find a gas station than it is to find a charging station.
