The Ford F-150 Lightning is an American icon electrified. As the age of the electric vehicle draws ever nearer, the Lightning may be one of the most important indicators of the public’s EV interest. Now that Ford has released a full configurator tool for the upcoming truck, we now have the chance to spec one out for ourselves.
The Lightning lineup is broken down into four trim levels: Pro, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum. The base-level offering carries an MSRP of just $39,974, though all Lightning models see a hefty $1695 tacked on for destination charges. For that money, you get a truck powered by a 98.0-kWh battery pack, which provides 426 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain will also offer up to 230 miles of range per charge, and comes with the compulsory all-wheel-drive system. The larger 131 kWh battery isn’t available on the Lightning Pro models. In fact, there really aren’t many options to choose from with the entry-level Lightning. Customers have nine exterior paint options to choose from, though Rapid Red is a $495 option. Ford does give customers the chance to spec the Pro models with the $865 Max Trailer Tow Package and the $1948 Towing Technology Package if they so choose. If the 2.4kW Pro Power Onboard generator doesn’t provide enough juice for your needs, the larger 9.6 kW unit is available for $1070. There are no wheel options on the Pro models and you can’t choose between different interior appointments.
