Introducing the F-150 Lightning Flash — a tech-forward model Ford in the Lightning lineup under $70,000.

The F-150 Lightning Flash expands on the XLT model line by adding in-demand tech capabilities, including an extended-range battery, which has a targeted EPA-estimated range of 320 miles, available Ford BlueCruise hands-free highway driving, and more.

“The F-150 Lightning Flash is a direct outcome of engaging with and learning from our customers. This truck combines many of the technology-forward features our customers love in our EV lineup, at a more accessible price. With an EPA-estimated 320 miles of range, the Lighting Flash is another example of the speed at which we are adapting to grow our EV business,” Marin Gjaja, Chief Operating Officer, Ford Model e, said.

In-Demand Tech & Extended Range Battery

The tech-focused Lightning Flash has a host of new features:

  • Hands-free highway driving technology, Ford BlueCruise.
  • Version 1.2, which includes Lane Change Assist, allowing the driver to change lanes hands-free by tapping the turn signal once the path is clear,
  • In-Lane Repositioning to help keep the vehicle in its lane while subtly shifting position away from vehicles in adjacent lanes.

Access to Over 84,000 Chargers

F-150 Lightning drivers can access the BlueOval Charge Network, North America’s largest public charging network with over 84,000 chargers.

Starting next year, F-150 Lightning drivers also will have access to more than 12,000 Tesla Superchargers, making it the largest integrated fast-charge network across the U.S. and Canada. Additionally, Ford EV dealers are also adding public-facing fast-chargers and locations to the BlueOval Charge Network.

Charging a vehicle at home is as simple as charging a phone. F-150 Lightning owners can charge overnight with the available Ford Mobile Charger on a 240V wall outlet.
