The Exciting F-150 Ford Lightning at Peacock Ford

In 2019, Ford unveiled a work-in-progress all-electric truck that was part of a million-ton towing challenge. The truck was well-received around Orlando, and now a polished version is coming to the 2022 model year. The Lightning takes its name from a Ford F-150 performance truck of the 1990s and early 2000s. This Lightning, however, is electrifying the truck scene.

Lots of excitement surrounds the F-150 Lightning because it is Ford's first truck that is powered solely by electric motors and a lithium-ion battery. The Lightning will share most exterior features of a gas-powered F-150, but it will offer a great deal of horsepower and torque. Altamonte Springs owners will be able to choose from a standard range battery pack, which is slated to deliver up to 230 miles of service per charge. For those who opt for the Extended Range battery, they can expect up to 300 miles of driving range per charge. Regardless of trim package or battery package, the F-150 Lightning will offer all-wheel drive. The Lightning is slated to offer a towing capacity of up to 10,000 pounds.

The F-150 Lightning Trim Levels

The Lightning will be available in four trim levels. The Pro is the base trim, and unlike many other all-electric vehicles, the starting price is rather affordable. Other trim levels include the XLT, the Lariat and the Platinum. The extended range battery pack is available as an add-on.

The Standard Range battery is slated to use two electric motors in the F-150 Lightning in order to produce up to 426 horsepower. However, when adding on the Extended Range battery pack, the F-150 Lightning will offer a noticeable 563 horsepower. Engineers of the Lightning expect the F-150 all-electric truck to produce up to 775 pound-feet of torque around Orlando regardless of battery choice. Of course, it's important to remember part of the excitement of the all-electric Lightning is the fact that all that horsepower will be immediate. You won't have to worry about a gasoline engine revving up to the proper RPMs to engage this whopping amount of horsepower and torque. Those who enjoy towing and hauling cargo may find this to be one of the better choices for towing short distances of under 300 miles. The max payload of the Lightning is expected to be approximately 1,800 to 2,000 pounds. The Extended Range battery will take up more space in the truck bed, so don't be surprised if the Extended Range battery lowers the max payload rating.

The battery packs of the truck will be stored in the back of the truck, meaning you'll have plenty of cargo space in the front of the truck, where the engine usually goes. This is known as a "frunk," and we think you'll love the ability to utilize this cargo area. The battery packs themselves will resemble a toolbox in the bed of the Lightning. The ingenious engineers at Ford have outfitted the Lightning's battery pack so that should you lose power to your Winter Park home, the Lightning can be plugged into your electric meter and power your entire home for up to three days, assuming average use. If you ration your power use, you could get up to ten days of power in your home from the Lightning's onboard battery. What is there not to love about this exciting electric truck?
