Battery Range, Horsepower & Acceleration

Performance Towing F150 Lightning Houston Tx

The F-150 Lightning offers two different battery options that power the dual electric motors: A more powerful “Extended-Range” battery and a second less powerful “Standard-Range” battery. The dual electric motors operate the same way in both battery models: one electric motor powers the front axle, and another powers the rear axle.

The difference in power and acceleration between the Extended-Range and Standard-Range battery models:

  1. Extended-Range battery: 563 horsepower and 775 lb/ft of torque.
  2. Standard range battery: 426 horsepower and 775 lb/ft of torque.

The difference in battery range between the Extended-Range and Standard-Range battery:

  1. Extended-Range battery: 300 miles of EPA-estimated range.
  2. Standard range battery: 230 miles of EPA-estimated range.


Both the Extended-Range and Standard-Range battery models come standard with a 4×4 drivetrain, Class IV trailer hitch and provide an incredible maximum available towing of 10,000lbs and maximum payload of 2,000lbs when weighted down. Acceleration, heavy towing, and payloads that surpass even the most ambitious recreational needs, the F-150 Lightning is capable to tow big boats, campers, heavy trailers, and haul just about anything you can lift into the truck bed.

Key Takeaways

The F-150 Lightning will be powered by dual electric motors from either an Extended-Range battery or Standard-Range battery and will deliver more horsepower and torque than any F-150 available today, the fastest acceleration, and the ability to haul heavyloads and tow big trailers across Houston highways and jobsites. The electric F-150 has undergone tens of thousands of hours of torture testing and targeting millions of simulated, laboratory and real-world test miles across all types of terrains to ensure it’s ability to handle every driving situation.

Less maintenance equals more time on the road and Ford is estimating a 40% savings over the lifetime cost of the truck versus a gasoline engine due to significantly less maintenance. Additionally, the electric F-150 Lightning will continuously improve over time with fast software updates.
