New Ford F-150 Lightning
Ray Skillman Performance Ford
Riding with Lightning!
After years of hearing the rumors, it’s almost time: the all-new fully-electric Ford F-150 Lightning is almost here. Which means it’s time to reveal some of the most exciting elements of these game-changing trucks and to talk about how and when to get yours from Ray Skillman Ford.
Going Fully Electric
The first thing to note about the F-150 Lightning is that it’s neither a hybrid nor a plug-in hybrid. Rather, this is Ford’s first fully-electric pickup truck and it’s one that is shaping up to outperform just about any other F-150 ever built.
With its dual electric motors delivering more horsepower, more torque, and more raw acceleration than its gas-powered counterparts, the Lightning will blow your hair back in ways a truck never has before.
And with lifetime maintenance costs projected to be significantly lower than that of a gas-powered motor, Ford is estimating at least a 40% savings over a standard truck.
With features like mobile power generation, which will allow you to use your truck as a power source on the jobsite or the campsite, and a giant front trunk that’ll give even more cargo capacity, these trucks are simply going to revolutionize the pickup landscape.
Plug-In and Go
Charging up your F-150 Lightning is going to be as simple as plugging in to a standard home outlet, a 240V NEMA 14-50 outlet, or at any of the wide-ranging FordPass Charging Network’s locations.
So you can be sure that you’ll never run out of juice for the adventures that await in a new F-150 Lightning.
How to Reserve Your New Lightning
Seeing as these are shaping up to be the most hotly anticipated new vehicles in decades, Ford has instituted a reservation system for you to claim your new Lightning.
