The Ford F-150 Lightning stands out in the electric pickup truck segment, embodying everything we love about the traditional F-150 in an electrified form. It retains the familiar F-150 styling while offering impressive range estimates, competitive pricing, and cutting-edge technology, including hands-free highway driving. Essentially, it’s an electric version of the beloved F-150 crew cab, featuring two electric motors and a sizable battery pack. Opting for the larger battery pack boosts power to 580 horsepower and provides ample range, as demonstrated by our real-world Edmunds EV Range Test, where we achieved an impressive 345-mile range on a single charge.

For 2024, the F-150 Lightning lineup introduces the limited Platinum Black edition, featuring a sleek black appearance package exclusive to the Platinum trim. Limited to just 2,000 units, it includes a matte-black body wrap, distinctive black badging, 22-inch black wheels, and black leather seats. Additionally, a new Flash model, positioned between the XLT and Lariat trims, emphasizes advanced technology. These updates enhance the range’s appeal, offering more customization options for buyers.

The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning lineup offers various trim levels to cater to different preferences and budgets. It begins with the base Pro trim starting at $49,995, followed by the XLT trim at $57,495. The well-liked Lariat model kicks off at $77,495, while the top-tier Platinum trim starts at $89,995. For those seeking enhanced features, the new F-150 Lightning Flash, equipped with the extended-range battery, starts at $69,995. Additionally, the exclusive Platinum Black special edition model is available, starting at $97,995.

The Ford F-150 Lightning’s interior mirrors that of its regular F-150 counterpart, retaining familiar elements while boasting unique high-tech features.

For instance, it offers a standard 12-inch touchscreen, with an optional 15.5-inch screen for added convenience.

In terms of space, every F-150 Lightning sports a crew cab body with ample rear legroom, measuring 43.6 inches. This matches the roominess of the gas-powered F-150 crew cab, surpassing competitors like the Rivian R1T, which only offers 36.6 inches of rear legroom.

One distinctive feature of the F-150 Lightning is its sizable “frunk” located under the front hood, providing 14.1 cubic feet of storage space — roughly equivalent to the trunk size of a Honda Civic. Additionally, the interior boasts clever amenities such as power outlets, a cargo net, and a vertically flipping floor panel that serves as a divider for enhanced organization.

At first glance, the Ford F-150 Lightning may not immediately scream “electric vehicle.”

Resembling its gas-powered counterpart, its exterior design exudes a conventional truck vibe with subtle high-tech touches, such as a distinctive LED light signature.

Unlike the standard F-150, the Lightning offers less customization, featuring a crew cab paired with a 5.5-foot bed as standard across all models.
