F-150 Lightning will roll off the line next year at a new high-tech factory at Ford’s Rouge complex in Dearborn, just outside Detroit.

Ford calls the F-150 Lightning a “pillar” of the company’s more than $22 billion global electric vehicle plan. Ford is starting with zero-emissions versions of some of its most popular franchises – Mustang, Transit and F-150 – with more to come in the years ahead, the company says.

With the ability to offload 9.6 kilowatts of power, Ford says the electric truck packs enough energy to power an entire home and a lockable frunk with power and charging capabilities to spare. Ford will deploy standard over-the-air software updates – called Ford Power-Up – to improve the technology experience, add new features and fix issues without trips to the dealership.

The commercial-oriented entry model starts at $39,974 MSRP before any federal or state tax credits, while the mid-series XLT model starts at $52,974 MSRP, offering additional comfort and technology.

F-150 Lightning has a 0-60 mph time in the mid-4-second range when equipped with an extended-range battery, based on typical industry methodology, the company says. F-150 Lightning targets a maximum 2,000 lbs. of payload in the standard-range model with 18-in. wheels, and a maximum 10,000 lbs. of available towing capacity on XLT and Lariat trucks with the extended-range battery and Max Trailer Tow Package.

On the road, customers have access to a public charging network through FordPass, with more than 63,000 charging plugs and growing across the U.S. On a 150-kilowatt DC fast charger, extended-range F-150 Lightning is targeted to get up to 54 miles of range in 10 minutes and charge from 15% to 80% percent in about 41 minutes, the company says.
