The results are in. And it’s unanimous. MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year is a prestigious award designated to only the best of the best. This year, the award goes to…

The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning

The first electric truck to win by a unanimous vote among the judges is the unprecedented 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning, making it only the second electric vehicle to win unanimously in the history of MotorTrend’s aptly-named competitions. An exciting win for the electric truck and its historic launch.

Lightning Strikes at Ford

Since the launch of the truck in May, sales have reached over 13,250 units, with Ford amping up to release 150,000 per year by next year.

Ed Loh, MotorTrend group head of editorial, said, “The F-150 Lightning and its nearly instant torque with ride and handling make it without a doubt the best truck Ford has ever made. If that feels like a bold statement, consider that amongst our judges, the F-150 Lightning won Truck of the Year by unanimous decision–the first EV truck to convince all judges across the board. The Ford F-150 Lightning is no less than a milestone achievement in the history of American mobility.”

What to Expect From The Lightning

The Ford F-150 Lightning boasts the power and strength you expect from the F-150 series with the added benefit of driving right past the gas pumps. The Lightning is exclusively electric so you won’t be standing at the pumps in -30? and you won’t be spending your hard-earned cash on fuel (because we know it will only get more expensive).

I know what you’re thinking – “I’m going to have to stop more often on road trips to charge and it will take longer to get there.” Let me stop you right there. You’re taking a road trip; isn’t it about the journey as much as the destination? Kidding, of course! With its extended-range battery, the Lighting will go an estimated 515 km before needing a charge. Pretty impressive if you ask us! And we think the payoff is worth it – better for the environment and a 30-minute wait to save hundreds of dollars in fuel? We’ll take it. But if you prefer to use the tried and true fuel F-150, we have those too.
