2024 Ford F-150 Lightning
 

The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning was named the 2024 Edmunds Top Rated Electric Truck for the second year in a row by the publication. Why did the F-150 Lightning earn this award for the second year?

Edmunds.com editor-in-chief stated, “Building on the appeal of the gas-powered F-150, the Lightning combines extra versatility with effortless performance. With its broad capability and rugged appeal, it feels less like an electric truck and more like one that just happens to be electric.”

Ford F-150 Lightning Practicality 

“The F-150 Lightning is one of the most practical and job site-friendly trucks on sale today. It’s also comfortable and impressively quick.” 

The top features cited here are:

  • An EV with true truck credentials
  • Comfortable ride
  • Impressive range with the extended-range battery option
  • Battery can be used to power tools, appliances and more

The range is about 300 miles without the extended battery pack. During the range test for Edmunds, it achieved 345 miles of range with the bigger battery.

Other citations from Edmunds.com are here:

“Unlike other electric pickups — which run the gamut from lifestyle-oriented adventure vehicles to silly party pieces with supercar-challenging acceleration — the Lightning can truly handle the toughest of truck stuff. Ford offers the majority of useful F-150 options on the Lightning as well, so you can order goodies like custom-fit toolboxes, lockable in-cabin storage bins, and onboard scales right from the factory. Plus, it exceeded its EPA estimate in the Edmunds EV Range Test, with the bigger-battery version traveling an impressive 345 miles (Edmunds EV Range Test figure) on a single charge.”

Ford F-150 Lightning Towing Capacity

The towing capacity of the F-150 tops out at 10,000 pounds and it can haul up to 2,235 pounds in the bed. We challenge you to find an electric truck with more hauling capabilities.
