Unlike most electric vehicles that take a completely different shape from their original internal combustion versions, the F-150 Lightning isn’t very different from the F-150 Americans know and love.
The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning is basically an F-150 motivated by two electric motors that pack a serious punch. It boasts a practical interior, generous cubby storage spaces, and class-leading tech features. Following its introduction in 2022, the Lightning is a carry-over model for 2023. If you are searching for a full-size all-electric pickup truck that is capable and reliable, leasing the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning is a great choice.
Engine And Performance
Every 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning is motivated by an all-wheel-drive setup which consists of two electric motors. This setup puts out 452 horsepower and a substantial 775 lb-ft of max torque on the regular electric F-150 truck. Go for the optional extended range pack, and the truck’s dual-electric motors will generate 128 extra horses to show you why it’s called Lightning. This brings the Ute’s power output to 580 hp. The standard range truck features a 98.0-kWh battery with a driving range of 230 miles per charge. Opting for the extended range 131.0-kWh pack elevates the driving range to 320 miles on a single charge. When properly equipped, the Lightning can tow up to 10,000 pounds and has a max payload capacity of 2000 pounds. The F-150 Lightning with the extended range option is surprisingly quick for its weight; it cracks the 0-to-60mph test in just 4.1 seconds.
On its thriftiest form, the F-150 Lightning earns an EPA rating of 78 MPGe in the city and 63 MPGe on the highway.
Inside, shoppers enjoy a practical interior identical to what is offered on the traditional F-150 and other large Ford models. A key difference, however, is the larger 15.0-inch vertically-inclined touchscreen found on the Lariat and Platinum models. A 12.0-inch touchscreen with Apple Carplay, Android Auto, built-in navigation, and a Wi-Fi hotspot is standard across the rest of the Lightning’s lineup. Ford also provides two Bang & Olufsen sound systems–one with eight speakers and the other with eighteen speakers.
Safety And Driver Assistance
Ford offers an extensive suite of standard safety and driver assistance features on the F-150 Lightning. Advanced technologies like the BlueCruise level 2 semi-autonomous driving mode are available as optional features. Highlights of the F-150 Lightning include
- Automatic High Beams
- 360-Degree Camera
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
- Post-Collision Braking
- Lane-Keeping System
- Pro Trailer Hitch Assist
- Pro Trailer Backup Assist
