The EPA has not released fuel economy ratings for the Ford F-150 Lightning, but these estimates are typically made public near the time a new vehicle goes on sale. When we have the opportunity, we will put the F-150 Lightning through our 75-mph highway fuel economy test and update this storey with the results. 

Ford F-150 Lightning Towing and Capacity

In July 2019, Ford held an event to demonstrate that a prototype of the EV pickup could tow a 1,000,000-pound line of train cars loaded with F-150s. The production model's official maximum towing capacity is 10,000 pounds, but only trucks equipped with the optional Extended-Range battery are capable of such feats. Standard-Range battery models have a capacity of 7700 pounds. The Standard-Range model has a payload capacity of up to 2000 pounds, while the Extended-Range model has a payload capacity of only 1800 pounds.

Ford F-150 Lightning Battery 

Ford claims a driving range of 230 miles per charge with the smaller 98.0-kWh battery; upgrading to the larger 131.0-kWh pack increases driving range to 300 miles. Buyers will be able to charge their F-150 Lightnings at home using 110- and 220-volt outlets, but the truck can also be charged at public DC fast-charging stations, and Ford claims it can charge from 15% to 80% of battery capacity in 44 minutes. Ford also designed the F-150 Lightning to function as a backup generator, claiming that a fully charged truck can provide up to three days of power to the average household in the event of a power outage.
