It’s definitely not a coincidence that the Ford F-150 has remained America’s best-selling pickup for over four decades. Now for the first time in its storied history, the F-150 Lightning marks the beginning of the all-electric future for this legendary truck. Following the principles of Built Ford Tough™, the F-150 Lightning is proof that going electric doesn’t mean making compromises on the work-ready capability and dependability that’s made it a hit with truck buyers. Drivers have their choice of either a standard or extended-range battery pack, capable of delivering up to an EPA-estimated 320 miles of targeted range. Its high-strength steel frame along with a military-grade aluminum-alloy body and bed delivers a blend of strength and weight savings that help this zero-emission pickup get the job done. Step inside and you’ll find a connected interior that’s equipped with the latest technological innovations from Ford including SYNC® 4A and the Ford Co-Pilot360™ 2.0 suite of driver-assistive safety features.

After debuting last year, the Ford F-150 Lightning returns for 2023 with a handful of key updates that are worth highlighting. First, the standard range battery capacity has been expanded from 230 miles to 240 miles for 2023 models.

A targeted 10,000-pound max towing capacity and 2,000-pound max payload capacity help illustrate how going electric doesn’t mean making any sacrifices on capability.

Helping you work both smarter and harder – the Ford F-150 Lightning is also available with cutting-edge tech features including Pro Trailer Hitch Assist, Smart Hitch, and onboard scales that help you calculate payload.
