The Ford Motor Company recently revealed the Ford F-150 Lightning, the brand’s first all-electric pickup truck. And this isn’t your run-of-the-mill EV — it’s the most powerful Ford F-150 to ever hit the market.
Boasting dual in-board motors, it delivers a targeted 563 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque. With all of that muscle, it can tow around 10,000 pounds and manage a max payload of 2,000 pounds. On top of that, it comes standard with a rear independent suspension, 4×4, and offers the Ford Intelligent Backup Power feature, which can channel 9.6 kilowatts to supply tools, appliances, or a trailer with electricity.
The Ford F-150 Lightning also has plenty of brains to back up its brawn. It boasts BlueCruise hands-free driving technology, over-the-air updates, and a new feature called Onboard Scales. This handy innovation shows how much your truck is carrying, so you can take the guesswork out of hauling cargo.
And since the F-150 doesn’t have to accommodate an engine under the hood, it boasts a handy front trunk that’s capable of holding 14.1 cubic feet of cargo, or up to 400 pounds of payload. That convenient cargo bay even holds four electrical outlets and USB ports to charge your mobile devices.
You can reserve your Ford F-150 Lightning now at Laird Noller Lawrence Ford in Lawrence, Kansas. It only costs $100 to reserve this innovative truck, so don’t delay. Deliveries are expected to begin in the spring of 2022.
