DEARBORN, Mich., May 2, 2022 – F-150® Lightning™ customers will benefit from more power and capability than they expected from their trucks.
F-150 Lightning, the only full-size electric pickup available now with a starting price less than CAD $70,000, will begin to ship to customers in the coming days, as Ford establishes itself as a leader in the electric vehicle revolution. Lightning is the smartest, most innovative F-150 that Ford has ever built, with the freedom of a 10-kilowatt smart power plant on wheels, software updates that will make it even better over time and Built Ford Tough capability.
Both the standard- and extended-range battery packs offered on F-150 Lightning will deliver more horsepower than originally targeted and announced when the truck was revealed in May 2021, and the payload capacity increased as well.
“We were seriously focused on raising the bar on this truck, including after we revealed it, so we can deliver more for our customers,” said Dapo Adewusi, F-150 Lightning vehicle engineering manager. “And our drive for continuous improvement will get a big boost when we start getting feedback and ideas from customers when they receive their Lightnings.”
The extended-range battery pack produces 580 horsepower – up from the targeted 563 horsepower. The standard-range battery pack delivers 452 – up from the targeted 426 ponies originally promised. Both packs are capable of producing 775 lbs.-ft. of torque, more than any other F-150 pickup ever.
“Considering the initial numbers were impressive, these are amazing!,” says F-150 Lightning customer and high school teacher Travis Piser. “It really inspires a lot of confidence about how the truck will perform.”
F-150 Lightning is the only electric vehicle that is Built Ford Tough, and its maximum available payload capacity also increased from original targets. Properly equipped F-150 Lightning pickups can now haul an extra 235 pounds for a total 2,235 pounds of maximum available hauling capability.
“I have been very excited for this truck ever since it debuted a year ago. The experience of driving one was simply amazing,” says F-150 Lightning customer and deputy fire marshal Matthew Brown. “Now you are telling me that is has more horsepower and can haul over a ton of weight in the bed. Absolutely blows my mind!”
In March, Ford released the final EPA-estimated range figures for all F-150 Lightning pickup models, which includes a 32 km increase for F-150 Lightning XLT and Lariat trims with the extended range battery for a total EPA estimated range of 515 km. Fleet customers have the option to purchase the extended-range battery on Lightning Pro and that has an EPA-estimated range of 515 km.2

Why a smoothie?
Over the last decade, we’ve been building Ford trucks and SUVs with plant-based materials. That means you can drive a Ford, but you can also drink some of the stuff that goes into a Ford.
To prove it, we took some of the delicious plant-based materials we use to build Ford vehicles, bottled them, and made it available to you as a healthy, delicious smoothie.
The Ford Smoothie is made with some of the plant-based materials used to build Ford vehicles of the past and the present. To add a little taste of the future, we also included a handful of extra ingredients that are currently being researched for Ford vehicles of the future.
Coconut, Soy, Rice, Orange, Agave, Algae, Prickly Pear.
Built for the future
From using recycled and renewable plastics to building vehicles with innovative plant-based by-products that may otherwise be thrown directly into landfills, we’re committed to building a more sustainable tomorrow.

LEADING THE CHARGE
The best-selling van in Canada* is about to lead businesses into the future. Introducing the all new Ford E-Transit. The only electric work van that has the backing of the Ford Motor Company. That means you get much more than just electrification. You get an entire ecosystem of products, support and know-how from a company with a long, proven legacy of getting the job done. So, it’s not just a new Transit. It’s a new way of doing business.
THE ULTIMATE BUSINESS PARTNER
Before we electrified the Transit we talked to real world businesses and designed it around them. For instance, the targeted range of up to 203 kilometres was based on what they told us they needed to get the job done day in and day out. So, businesses get a true work van designed to meet their real-world challenges. Offering all of the benefits of an electric vehicle without sacrificing the capability.
