The Lightning will utilize aluminum on its exterior body panels to reduce weight and feature a new front end and tailgate. Consumers will find some familiarity with its size as it will come available in only a Crew Cab with 5'5" box. On the interior, the Lightning will follow the same design language as the gas-powered minus options for colour combinations and a new 15.5" screen.

Advanced Towing & Hauling Technology Behind the New Ford 

There are loads of features to explore regarding towing and hauling technology with the new F-150 Lightning. The available Pro Trailer Hitch Assist makes hooking up to a trailer a breeze as it automatically controls the steering, throttle, and braking. Other notable features are onboard scales that measure payload weight automatically, a smart hitch that measures tongue weight, and Pro Trailer Backup Assist that helps you reverse a trailer through a knob. Another feature that comes in handy along those offerings is the available Trailer Reverse Guidance, providing you with a live feed from the cameras to show the trailer's surroundings for easier parking and reversing.


The XLT trim serves as the base entry trim level, but it packs loads of features that rival most of the pickup trucks on the market. You can expect to have features such as grey ion satin metallic grille, signature front Lightning, cloth seating, extended running boards with enhanced Lightning, Ford Co-Pilot360 2.010, and an Interior Work Surface function. Other notable features of the XLT include 20-inch dark carbonized grey aluminum wheels, enhanced zone Lightning, standard 9.6kW Pro Power Onboard, and an available extended-range battery.


Upgrading to the Lariat trim level adds leather-trimmed seating surfaces, a power tailgate, and a SYNC 4A multimedia interface with a 15.5-inch touchscreen. As available, you can upgrade the Lariat trim with a twin-panel moonroof, extended-range battery, and Ford Co-Pilot360 Active 2.0.


As the top trim level, the Platinum gets Vader black with tinted chrome grille, 22-inch bright machined aluminum wheels with ebony-black painted pockets, heated and ventilated Nirvana leather-trimmed front seats, multi-contour front seats with Active Motion, extended-range battery, B&O sound system, Ford Co-Pilot360 Active 2.0, and twin-panel moonroof.

Ford F-150 Lightning Towing Capacity

When it comes to towing a trailer, the standard-range F-150 Lightning models will be able to tow 7,700 pounds, sufficient for various towing applications. Upgrading to the extended-range battery allows for a higher towing rating of 10,000 pounds, which is considerably higher than the standard rating, allowing you to tow much heavier items.

The standard powertrain will feature two electric motors and an all-wheel-drive drivetrain, offering an output of 426 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque from the standard-range battery models. Models with the extended-range battery will have higher output figures of 563 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque. The standard-range models are rated to have a total driving range of 370 kilometres while upgrading to the extended-range variants increases the range to 480 kilometres.

Technology and Capability of Ford All Electric 

The 2022 Lightning will come available with all the technology features that can be found in the current generation truck. However, the Lightning takes it to a whole other level. It boasts two new features that will revolutionize the industry. Pro Power On Board will allow owners to utilize up to 9.6 kW of usable electricity through 11 available 110-volt outlets, and let's not forget the 240 volt as well. Secondly, Intelligence Back-Up Power will provide power to your home in the case of a power outage. Intelligence Back-Up Power does require the extended range battery and can power your home for up to three days.

Since the F-150 Lightning is still Built Ford Tough, under the body, you will find an all-new chassis built specifically for Lightning . Pair that with a lower centre of gravity and independent rear suspension, and you have the best driving, handling, stable, and quickest truck you have ever experienced. As a cherry on top, the Lightning will also tow up to 10,000 lbs.
