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.
2023 Ford F-150 Lightning Launch Date and Cost
The price of the impending 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning remains unknown. But we expect it to be priced between the Tesla Cybertruck and the GMC Hummer EV. The first deliveries will be in 2022.
Eagerly awaiting Ford’s new electric truck, the “Lightning” or “E-150.” Even the word “Everglades” is apparently up for grabs.
