Ford will supposedly start taking orders again for the F-150 Lightning because of high demand for this all-electric truck. Our sources say that the new 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning will go into production early next year. So, expect this electric pickup truck to be available for purchase as early as the fall of 2023.
As you probably already know, the new truck runs on electricity and is powered by two AC electric motors with fixed magnets that are mounted side by side. All-wheel drive is now the standard because of this. A battery available in the base model can go 230 miles, while a battery with an extended range of 320 miles. Read on to find out more about the next car.
2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Design
The regular Ford F-150 pickup truck and the all-electric 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning are very different in a number of important ways. It has a beautiful closed grille and a strip of LED lights across the hood that connects the LED headlight modules. On the other hand, the Lariat trim has its own grille treatments and a red LED strip at the back.
The 20-inch Dark Carbonized Gray alloy wheels and black fixed running boards make the XLT one of the most popular models. The Platinum has alloy wheels that are 22 inches in diameter and have a two-tone bright aluminum and black finish.
Cabin with Huge 12.0-Inch Touchscreen Infotainment
The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning is almost exactly the same on the inside as a regular F-150. There are some important differences, and the Lightning is only available as a crew cab with a 5.5-foot bed. The Lightning has a huge 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Ford’s latest Sync 4 software, making it technologically superior to comparable cars.
If you choose the Lariat and Platinum models, you’ll get an even bigger 15.0-inch screen. Every model is equipped with a standard Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and in-dash navigation. Bang & Olufsen makes great sound systems. It’s also important to note that the Lariat model has eight speakers, while the Platinum model has 18.
Details About the 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning’s Engines
Blue Oval says that the new 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning will come in two different styles. This car comes with two AC electric motors, one for each axle. Together, they make an all-wheel-drive system. A standard-range battery can give you 452 hp and take you about 230 miles. On the other hand, the extended-range battery has 563 horsepower and a range of 320 miles. Both systems will give you a torque of 775 lb-ft.
Also, the model with an extended-range battery can pull up to 10,000 pounds, while a standard-range battery can only pull up to 7,700 pounds. Also, an electric car can be charged to 80% of its capacity in less than 45 minutes at a 150 kW DC fast-charging station.

The basic Pro model with a standard-range battery costs less than $40,000. If you choose the XLT, the price will go up to $52,974. The Platinum trim is the most expensive, costing $90,474.
As you can see, the price of the F-150 Lightning is in the same line as the Tesla Cybertruck. The GMC Hummer EV Pickup, on the other hand, costs over $63,000, which is a lot more. As was said before, the F-150 Lightning should start taking orders in 2023.
