The Ford F-150 Lightning was unveiled in May 2021. Pre-production on the all-new electric truck started in September 2021, with production beginning in April 2022. The Edmunds team acknowledged that the F-150 Lightning’s advanced technology provides new solutions and values to customers that rely daily on the truck’s capabilities. 

“[F-150 Lightning] embraces the advantages of electric technology to create a better truck for truckers,” said Edmunds Editor-in-Chief Alistair Weaver. “This isn’t a lifestyle toy; it’s a working tool in the best tradition of the F-150. The heart of America is in robust health.”

In addition, the F-150 Lightning Pro has several stand-out features ideal for fleet operations, from a large "frunk" and faster Level 2 charging, among several other features.
