Saskatchewan’s best-selling truck has gone green! Meet the all-new 2023 F-150 Lightning, Ford’s first 100% electric pickup truck. The Lightning is fully loaded with all of the power, versatility, and dependability you’ve come to expect from the award-winning F-150, but introduces innovative new electric components to deliver a future-forward vehicle for drivers who demand more from their Fords.
Ford has successfully delivered an EV pickup truck that doesn’t compromise on power and performance. Two electric motors in the front and rear power the 2023 F-150 Lightning, providing a mighty 775 lb-ft of torque, standard all-wheel drive, 10,000-pound maximum towing capacity, and a juicy 426 horsepower. Choose between the Standard Range Battery (SRB) and Extended Range Battery (ERB) to cruise a cool 370 km or 480 km on a single charge, respectively. Looking for even more power? The ERB increases Lightning’s horsepower to a do-it-all 563.
The 2023 F-150 Lightning is designed to recharge on your schedule. The Extended Range Battery comes with a portable 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro that can provide a full overnight charge whenever and wherever you need it using the dual onboard chargers. You’ll also have a 32-amp Ford Mobile Charger at your disposal, which can plug into any 120V or 240V outlet for a quick and easy charge. You can even share energy with your home to take advantage of peak/off-peak electricity hours to help you save money while you’re busy saving the planet.
“Another of the neat features is the ability to back-feed the extended-range battery’s electrons into a house in the event of a power outage. A fully-charged battery has the potential to deliver 9.6 kilowatts of power and it can do so for up to three days. Down the road, the Lightning will be able to power the house during high-cost peak hours while taking advantage of low-cost overnight rates to charge the vehicle in time for the morning commute.”
The new 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning features an oversized, tablet-style touchscreen monitor, where you’ll find a wealth of connectivity features at your fingertips, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SYNC4 connectivity, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a premium B&O audio experience, FordPass, and so much more.
Cruise our Saskatchewan highways confidently knowing your Ford Lightning is as safe as it is smart. Standard safety features include:
• Adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving mode
• Lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
• Auto-emergency braking with pedestrian detection
This electric pickup truck is also one of Ford’s first vehicles to offer BlueCruise semi-autonomous driving mode - an advanced feature that uses intelligent radar technology to allow for a hands-free driving experience on select ‘Hands-Free Blue Zone’ highways across North America. Now that’s one smart truck!
