With the announcement of Chevrolet’s upcoming electric Silverado, Bill Ford and his team have beat them to the punch. In a shocking (literally) press release, we’re happy to announce that the 2023 Ford Lightning will be an all-electric F-150.
The formal unveiling will be live-streamed from Dearborn on May 19th. CEO Jim Farley says: “Every so often, a new vehicle comes along that disrupts the status quo and changes the game … Model T, Mustang, Prius, Model 3. Now comes the F-150 Lightning. America’s favorite vehicle for nearly half a century is going digital and fully electric. F-150 Lightning can power your home during an outage; it’s even quicker than the original F-150 Lightning performance truck; and it will constantly improve through over-the-air updates.”
What he was referring to is the 1st generation of the Lightning. These muscle trucks were loaded with every luxury along with a 5.8-liter V8. High-voltage is much like a rising tide, so the values of classic Lightnings are about to skyrocket. Click the button to find yours and stay with us for all your Ford news.
