The Standard Range is standard on the first three of four grades, namely the work-oriented Pro, XLT, and Lariat. The Extended Range is optional on the XLT and Lariat, whereas the Platinum gets the bigger pack as standard.

As a brief refresher, the Dearborn-based automaker targets 230 and 300 miles (370 and 483 miles) of EPA-rated driving range for the aforementioned batteries, including 1,000 pounds (454 kilograms) of payload.

Offered exclusively as a SuperCrew with a 5.5-foot box, dual-motor AWD, and independent rear suspension instead of a solid axle and leaf springs, the Lightning features the 2.4-kW Pro Power Onboard system as standard on the Pro and XLT, while the 9.6-kW variant is standard on the upper trim levels.

The Max Trailer Tow Package and Tow Technology Package are optional across the range, with the notable exception of the Platinum grade. In terms of infotainment, Ford offers a 12-inch touchscreen and SYNC 4 in the Pro and XLT while the Lariat and Platinum feature 15.5 inches and SYNC 4A.

The biggest differences between the operating systems come in the guise of Adaptive Dash Cards and the automatic placement of frequently used dash items at the top of the screen. The Blue Oval highlights that SYNC 4 cannot be upgraded to SYNC 4A. On the upside, both feature over-the-air software updates that can be downloaded via Wi-Fi or the truck’s built-in modem.

According to the Ford Motor Company’s latest livestream on the F-150 Lightning, Tough Bed spray-in bedliner is optional on every trim level.

The Blue Oval has further confirmed 11 exterior colors, of which Smoked Quartz Metallic Tinted Clearcoat and Star White Metallic Tricoat are reserved for the better-equipped Lariat and Platinum. The remaining hues are Agate Black Metallic, Antimatter Blue Metallic, Atlas Blue Metallic, Carbonized Gray Metallic, Iced Blue Silver Metallic, Iconic Silver Metallic, Oxford White, Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, and the elegant Stone Gray Metallic.
