What is the engine for the Ford F-150 Lightning Like?
The Ford-150 Lightning has a look and feel of a gasoline-powered F-150, but instead of a standard gas-powered engine, it has two electric motors and all-wheel-drive.

With the standard battery pack and the two motor setup, the Ford F-150 Lightning pumps out 426 horsepower and a spectacular 775 lb-ft of torque. This battery pack has up to 230 miles of range when on a full charge. If that’s not enough for you, you can opt for Lightning’s extended range battery, which not only provides you with 300 miles of range but you also get up to 563 horsepower. The added horsepower allows the Lightning to go from 0 to 60 in around 4 seconds. If you’re looking to haul around a ton of material, the F-150 Lightning is the truck for you as it has a payload capacity of 2,000 pounds and can tow up to 10,000 pounds with the Max Trailer Tow Package. There is also additional cabin storage to haul around smaller items.
