Ford F-150 Lightning Can Reach 0 To 60 MPH In Less Than 4.0 Seconds

Well, it’s official. Ford confirmed today on Twitter that the F-150 Lightning can go from 0 to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in under four seconds. The automaker didn’t reveal the exact number, but a time of less than four seconds puts it on par with a series of phenomenal sports cars and other performance vehicles. Ford previously estimated the truck’s 0-60 time to be around 4.5 seconds.

Having that much performance in a truck like the F-150 is great, but that number can only be achieved with the model’s long-range battery. Ford is offering it as an option in XLT and Lariat trims, starting at just over $80,000. Standard battery on Platinum trim.

When production of the F-150 Lightning began in April, Ford revealed that the truck would produce more horsepower than previously advertised. The rating for the long-range battery has increased from 563 horsepower (419 kilowatts) to 580 hp (432 kW). The standard range battery jumped from 426 hp (317 KW) to 452 hp (337 kW). The torque rating remains unchanged at 775 pound-feet (1,050 Newton-meters).

All that performance is good, but the pickup is still facing supply chain issues that affect its price, and not in a good way. Earlier this month, the automaker had to raise the truck’s base price by $7,100. That’s a big jump. However, the new pricing doesn’t affect the truck’s status as the most affordable electric pickup on the market, continuing to undercut the Rivian R1T and GMC Hummer EV. The entry-level Chevrolet Silverado EV could pose a threat, with the affordable WT trim going on sale sometime next year.

EVs of all shapes and sizes continue to demonstrate the performance capabilities of the technology. A sub-four-second pickup truck is an impressive feat, even if it’s expensive. The F-150 Lightning is still in its first year of sale, but they are strong. Ford hopes to stand out from other automakers by making attractive products that generate excitement because consumers seem to want to own the latest technology. They are less interested in efficiency.
