Lighten Up With The Ford F-150 Lightning

June 20th, 2022 by

The Ford F-150 has been the number-one-selling truck in Canada for over 50 years. Ford is stepping up their game and delivering an electrifying update to Canada’s favourite truck.

Work Hard, Play Hard

I know what you’re thinking. “The F-150 hauls all my stuff.” The F-150 Lightning does too. Tow, haul, and tackle all your adventures as you would in the fuel-powered F-150… but without the fuel. No sweat. Whether it’s a camper, boat, ATV, or trailer, there’s power for hauling and towing.

  • Maximum towing capacity is 10,000 lbs (4,536 kg).
  • Trailer Reverse Guidance makes backing up a cakewalk.
  • Pro Trailer Backup Assist tracks the trailer backup position with a camera to guide the way.
  • Smart Hitch helps you hitch easier and tow safer.
  • Max Trailer Tow Package gives you a little extra oomph to haul oversized loads.
  • With the available extended-range battery, the F-150 Lightning provides 775 lb.-ft. of nearly instant torque and 580 horsepower.

I’ve Got The Power

It’s more than the regular truck you’re used to. The Lightning lives up to its name with available 9.6 kW of max power output from the Pro Power Onboard feature. Fire it up and power saws, fans, blenders – whatever you need – with 11 convenient electric power outlets throughout the cab, Mega Power Frunk (that’s front trunk), and in the truck bed.

When the lights go out, the Lightning takes over. The Intelligent Backup Power acts as a backup source to power your home. With the Ford Charge STation Pro, bi-directional power flows to and from the truck so your home can power the truck and, when the power goes out, the truck can return the favour and power your home. When installed properly, the F-150 Lightning can power your home for up to 10 days!

Take Charge

There is a variety of charging options for the F-150 Lightning.

Ford Charge Station Pro is the perfect at-home charging solution.

  • 48 km per hour charged
  • 80-amp power output
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-enabled
  • FordPass app connectivity
  • Can be installed indoors or outdoors
  • 25ft charging cord

The Mobile Power Cord is a convenient way to power up on the go.

  • 14-hour charging time on extended-range battery at 240V (recommended)
  • 30-amp power output
  • Use indoors or outdoors
  • Compatible with standard 120V outlet for household charging
  • Comes with all F-150 models

Charge up on the road with North America’s largest public EV network so you can charge up along your route.

Some Things Stay The Same

An important thing that Ford kept in this all-new electric version of the F-150 is the capability we expect from the best-selling pickup truck. Go off-roading, tow, haul, and handle anything at work with the capabilities you’d expect from the fuel-powered version we know and love. Discover exceptional 4×4 performance and with the extended-range battery, tackle an impressive 515 kilometres on a full charge. Of course, the actual range depends on the environment, use, maintenance, battery age, and health, just the same as fuel mileage depends on these things.
