The Ford F1-50 Lightning is here, and we’ve been getting a really good look at Ford’s first all-electric pick-up truck. Obviously the F-series has been America’s best selling car for decades, so the fact it’s taking the first steps towards electrification is a very big deal.

And Ford clearly knows why people love the F-series so much. The F-150 Lightning almost completely mimics its gas and hybrid counterparts, and is available with an affordable $39,970 price tag. Also on offer is up to 320 miles of range, and it looks like Ford may be set to release one of the best electric cars. Here’s everything you need to know about the Ford F-150 Lightning, including release dates, range, features and more.

We’re looking at a truck that’s on par with the likes of the Tesla Cybertruck, rather than the overindulgent excess of the $110,000 GMC Hummer EV.

That certainly matches Ford’s whole everyman schtick and emphasizes that the company isn’t trying to alienate its existing customer base with an extravagant take on the F-150. Below is everything you need to know about the Ford F-150 Lightning. 

Latest Ford F-150 Lightning news (updated May 17)

  • F-150 Lighting delivers are imminent, according to CEO Jim Farley, with Ford releasing a video showing the trucks being loaded into car carriers.
  • Ford has started shipping the first F-150 Lighting trucks, and revealed the truck is actually more powerful than it originally promised
  • The Ford F-150 Lightning has proven incredibly popular, so popular that Ford is taking steps to try and prevent the car from being resold by scalpers

Ford F-150 Lightning: Price and release date

The all-electric Ford F-150 is due to arrive in early 2022 and will be available in two configurations. The base model starts at $39,974 while an extended range model (with about 300 miles of range) will sell somewhere in the mid-$50,000s. 

This means that the F-150 Lighting is going to be noticeably more expensive than the gas-powered 2021 F-150, which starts at $29,940. Ford has not revealed pricing for the Lariat or Platinum trims, but have confirmed that it would go up in to the $90,000 range.

Reservations were open on the Ford website, with a $100 deposit, but the F-150 Lightning’s popularity meant the automaker had to shut all that down. Ford CEO Jim Farley confirmed this was down to getting 200,000 orders, while full production capacity is 70,000 to 80,000 units. However Ford has promised to double this figure by next year.

The car is so popular that Ford has even taken measures to avoid after-market sales by scalpers, offering dealers the opportunity to have customers sign paperwork that would prevent them from selling on the car within the first year.

The first deliveries for the truck are already in progress, and Ford CEO Jim Farley tweeted out a video showing the trucks being loaded into car carriers. However the popularity of the truck means it may be sometime before yours actually arrives.

Ford F-150 Lightning: Power and performance

The Ford F-150 Lighting is powered by two electric motors, which offers all wheel drive. The truck is also more powerful that Ford originally promised when it was announced. The standard range model offers 452 horsepower, up from 426, and the extended range model offers 580 horsepower — up from 563.

Ford also revealed that both models will be able to haul up to 2,235 lbs of cargo — an increase from the respective 2,000 and 1,800 lbs originally revealed. The standard range F-150 will also be able to tow 7,700 pounds, while the extended range model can tow up to 10,000 pounds.

Ford still hasn’t revealed official figures for the F-150 Lightning’s 0-60 time, even after the truck has started being delivered. All we have to go on is that Ford estimates the time will be in the mid-4 second range.

Ford F-150 Lightning: Battery and range

According to Ford, the base F-150 Lighting model will offer up to 230 miles of driving range, from a 98 kWH battery, while the pricier extended range model will offer up to 320 miles from a 131 kWh battery — that’s 20 miles more than originally promised. 

Some high-end electric cars have started to offer 350kW charging speeds, the F-150 Lighting is limited to 150kW DC rapid charging. This isn’t a bad thing, since 350kW chargers are pretty darn rare, but it does put the car at a disadvantage on paper. 

Rapid charging the extended range model can restore 54 miles of range in 10 minutes and can charge from 15% to 80% in 41 minutes. The standard range model takes a bit longer with 41 miles of range in 10 minutes and needs 44 minutes to go from 15% to 80%.

Ford F-150 Lightning: Design and interior

If you like the current Ford F-150 design, then the F-150 Lightning should feel incredibly familiar. While some electric car makers want their EV range to stand out, Ford has clearly opted for the idea that you don’t need to fix something that isn’t broken. So, the F-150 Lighting looks darn similar to a gas-powered model.

Ford CEO Jim Farley even told The Verge’s Decoder podcast that “There are lots of flavors of soda, but there’s only one Coke, and there’ll be lots of electric pickup tricks, [but] there’s only one F-150.” 

In other words, Ford knows how iconic its truck is, and it’s not going to jeopardize that. Presumably it doesn’t want a “New Coke” situation on its hands.

There are some changes, of course. The front grill doesn’t need to allow airflow, so that has been redesigned. There’s also a continuous light bar on the front of the truck, which wasn’t there on the gas or hybrid models. But aside from those two things, you’ll probably only realize this is electric after noticing there’s no exhaust.

In terms of cargo, your front trunk has 14.1 cubic feet of space and can carry up to 400 pounds of stuff. It’s why Ford is calling it the ‘Mega Power Frunk.’ The rear bed is the same size as other F-150s, which also means it should be compatible with any other accessories you might have or wish to buy.

Ford F-150 Lightning: Autonomous Driving and special features

The F-150 Lightning isn’t going to be stingy with smart features either. To combat Tesla, it will come with a hands-free driving assistance system called BlueCruise. The system was set to launch on 2021 F-150s and Mustang Mach-E later this year, but has now been delayed to sometime in 2022. The feature lets you take your hands off the wheel when driving on the highway.

It’s not a fully autonomous feature, however. And while BlueCruise can control steering and acceleration, it will also include an infrared camera to track the driver’s eyes and make sure they’re actually paying attention to the road. 

The F-150 Lighting will also have Ford’s new smart hitch assist, which will make it almost effortless to hook a trailer up to the back. The truck also comes with a “Phone as a Key” feature, which will connect to your smartphone via the FordPass app and let you start the engine without having your usual key fob.

Ford F-150 Lightning: Outlook

It’s very clear that Ford knows who it’s targeting with the F-150 Lighting. The gas-powered F-150 has been America’s best-selling car for 44 years, and Ford is making sure those loyal customers aren’t alienated by the switchover to electric. 

So, we’re getting a truck that looks and performs the same as current F-150 models. That’s not to say it won’t also come with all the features you’d expect from an electric car, which is certainly going to work in Ford’s favor. Plus, as electric cars go, the base model isn’t particularly expensive. 

The F-150 Lightning is definitely one to watch as the years go on.
