Most pickup truck fanatics around Milwaukee have eagerly awaited the arrival of Ford's first all-electric truck, the Ford F-150 Lightning. Although it's an electric truck, it doesn't compromise Ford's reliability, work-ready capability and solid performance. Here are some worthy features of the new Ford F-150 Lightning.

Great Power

Whether you plan to use F-150 Lightning for work or recreation, it transforms your thinking of capability and performance. Its all-electric engine is designed to be as powerful as other engines installed on the other F-150 lineup.

You have an option to pick a standard-range battery that produces 426 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque or an extended-range battery that squeezes out 563 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque. The two powertrains can be paired with a standard four-wheel-drive system to help tow about 10,000 pounds.

An Impressive EV Driving Range

The standard-range battery offers a driving range of about 230 miles, translating to several hours of driving around town. On the other hand, the extended-range battery offers a driving range of about 300 miles. Given how public charging stations are becoming popular, you can quickly locate a station to replenish the battery.

Bi-Directional Charging

The bi-directional charging is a cool feature of the F-150 Lightning, as it acts as a generator. If you ever experience a power outage in your home, the truck will step in and offer energy. Also, the truck's massive battery can charge another electric car. You will appreciate the battery's capability to let you power several electronics, including compressors, TV, lights, refrigerator and much more.

High-End Tech and Interior

The F-150 Lightning is not an ordinary truck, as it has sophisticated features to give you a luxurious and comfortable ride. Some desirable amenities in the truck include heated and ventilated front seats, an inbuilt massage function on the front seats and leather seats. Like other new Ford models, it has advanced driver-assist features, inbuilt navigation, Wi-Fi connectivity, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®. Moreover, it has self-driving modes and hands-free driving.
