- images of the ford f-150 lightning have leaked out as part of president biden's visit to michigan.
- it looks much like the gas truck but with a few key differences that make it look more futuristic.
- the full truck will be revealed tomorrow, may 19, on ford's website.
ford's new f-150 lightning has appeared ahead of its official debut as part of president biden's visit to the ford rouge electric-vehicle facility in michigan. the new electric pickup is visible behind biden alongside the gas f-150 and several historic ford pickup trucks.
the lightning appears to have the same body as the standard f-150 but its headlights and wheels are different. it's a crew-cab model which means it's likely to offer the shorter 5.5-foot bed offered on the f-150. other photos posted on twitter show its six-spoke wheels are likely to be exclusive to the lightning.
we're expecting the f-150 lightning to come standard with two electric motors providing all-wheel-drive capability. ford has claimed it will be more powerful and quicker than any of the gas-powered f-150 models. it will have a large battery pack that should provide at least 300 miles of range. a video from ford's proving grounds shows biden driving a prototype version of the lightning and mentioning a 60 mph acceleration time in the 4.3 to 4.4 second range.
more details are coming tomorrow, may 19, as part of ford's official debut of the lightning on its youtube channel.
