August 9, 2022 – Ford is reopening ordering for the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck, with a few updates including the base battery option. It picks up 10 more miles for a total estimated range of 240 miles.
Also available now is Pro Trailer Hitch Assist. This feature lets the truck automatically maneuver itself into position for hooking up a trailer. It’s available on all trims. On Pro, XLT and some Lariat trims, it’s part of the optional Tow Technology Package. On some other Lariat trims and the Platinum trim, it’s a standard feature.
Unfortunately, these features also come with a significant price increase. Depending on the trim level and configuration, the F-150 Lightning has increased in price between $6,000 and $8,500. The base Pro model now starts at $48,769, counting the $1,795 destination charge.
