The upcoming all-electric 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning is slated to debut at some point in 2022. The F-150 Lightning is a 1990s model with a V8 engine that was highly popular back then. Blue Oval will now revive the Lightning nameplate on the new all-electric F-150. Another explanation is the E-150 name, but this is less likely to happen.
The next F-150 Lightning will have dual motors and standard all-wheel drive. Sales will start next year, and everyone expects great success. Blue Oval will unveil more facts about the all-electric truck in the following weeks. Here’s everything we know about this impressive pickup truck at the moment.
2023 F-150 Lightning Driving Range
Ford hasn’t revealed the specs of the new 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning model. But we know it will have dual motors and an all-wheel-drive setup. Ford claims the electric F-150 will have more horsepower, torque, and acceleration than any other F-150 now on the market. It will have over 450 horsepower and hit 60 mph in less than five seconds.
The F-150 Lightning’s battery pack should have a range of over 300 miles, like the Mustang Mach- E crossover. The truck’s EPA rating is 305 miles. Finally, Ford made a bed-mounted removal range extender, which is a great feature.
What About Design?
The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning spy photos are out now. Last month, the spied prototype was observed in Michigan. The electric F-150 will be the same as the regular F-150. The ride height is the main difference between conventional and electric versions. The plug-in port on the driver’s side also indicates an electric model. This is owing to the electric motors.
But since this is a prototype, we have no idea how the final product will look. We also witnessed the new E-150 towing and dragging items. The interior will be nearly the same. We expect the electric version to be based on a higher trim level.
Other Names for Lightning Electric Truck
As we said, the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning isn’t an official moniker. However, leaked documents reveal the forthcoming F-150 Lightning would have an all-electric drivetrain. We mentioned the “E-150” name as a possible outcome.
Still, the stolen paper shows the term Lightning, so we’re not sure whether this is real. The E-150 makes more sense because the Mustang Mach-E and E-Transit are electric. Regardless, multiple sources now point to the F-150 Lightning as the new name.
