Here’s what you get in a new Ford F-150 Lightning Pro

Introduced in 2021, the Ford F-150 Lightning is one of the most popular electric pickup trucks in the U.S. Recently, I saw it in its most basic, ‘Pro’ grade, aimed at fleet customers who intend to use it as a professional work truck.

Available in nine color options, the Ford F-150 Lightning Pro features LED projector headlamps with vertical daytime running lights, 18-inch alloy wheels with black high gloss pockets, a power frunk with 14.1 cu. ft. of storage space, and a locking removable tailgate. This particular unit, finished in Oxford White, has been equipped with optional features like LED mirror spotlights, heated mirrors, a retractable tonneau cover, and a 9.6 kW generator.

Inside, the Ford F-150 Lightning Pro includes the SYNC 4 infotainment system with a horizontally laid, 12-inch touchscreen and a built-in navigation function, a 12-inch virtual instrument cluster, dual-zone climate control system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, tilt and telescopic steering column, heated front seats, and a 60/40 fold-up rear bench.

On the safety front, Ford equips the F-150 Lightning Pro with auto high-beam, Lane-Keeping System (includes Lane-Keeping Alert, Lane-Keeping Aid, and Driver Alert), Pre-Collision Assist w/ AEB, Post-Collision Braking, BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert, backup camera, rear parking sensors, and Reverse Brake Assist. A 360-degree camera system is optional, and this particular unit does include that feature.

Power comes from two electric motors, one for the front wheels and one for rear, producing 452 hp and 775 lb.-ft. of torque. The F-150 Lightning Pro can carry a payload of up to 2,235 lbs. and tow up to 5,000 lbs., or 7,700 lbs., if opted with Max Trailer Tow Package. A 98 kWh battery pack supplies energy to the motors, and charging it from 15 to 100% using a Level 2 charger takes 10 hours. You can use a Level 3 charger to charge it from 15 to 80% in just 44 minutes. The F-150 Lightning Pro consumes 49 kWh/100 mi and goes up to 240 miles (EPA-est.) on a full charge.

The Ford F-150 Lightning Pro retails at USD 49,995 (excl. 1,995 destination charges) before options.
