Ford F-150 Lightning pros and cons
Pros and Cons by Owners / Test Drives
Frunk is a great setup with the low load height
Bluecruise is very good on highway
Lots of interior space
Can haul a decent amount
Range loss on highway over 70mph
Tall, the bed is really high which makes access challenging
See Tech Specs - Ford F-150 Lightning
The Frunk is the one thing I use the most.
9.6 Pro Power on board could be a game changer for contractors and work trucks!
The seats on even the base model are extremely comfortable.
The Pro trim level is well equipped.
Its an electric truck!
The onboard scales are nice.
The stated range of 230 is more like 195 on highway driving and 115 when towing.
Aerodynamics slightly better than a brick.
No step rail option on the Pro Model.
Amazing acceleration and torque
Full-sized truck bed
Large interior space
Frunk is large and very practical
Quiet and smooth drive
Great SR range (~240 mi)
Bluecruise is relatively reliable and the hardware is there for future self-driving improvements
The Lightning shares a significant number of parts with the standard ICE F-150 (easily configurable, lead time on replacement parts is reduced compared to other EVs)
The vehicle has the power to haul (over short distances)
Lower than average fast charging speeds (compared to Rivian and Hummer offerings)
Stock B&O sound system has alot to be desired for a truck at this price point
Range sharply reduced above 75mph or while towing/hauling
