In the 2024 model year, the Ford F-150 Lightning undergoes significant enhancements to boost its appeal. The standout upgrade is the inclusion of a standard heat pump across the lineup, addressing the issue of cold weather affecting electric vehicle (EV) range. This heat pump maintains the battery at its ideal temperature, enhancing charging efficiency.
The new “Flash” trim level, priced at $72,090, brings mid-range luxury to the lineup. It comes equipped with premium features like an extended-range battery, a spacious 15.5-inch infotainment screen, wireless phone charging, a high-quality B&O audio system, a power tailgate, and a practical tailgate step. Buyers can opt for Ford’s BlueCruise automated driver-assist system at an extra cost.
The “Flash” grade also includes the Tow Technology Package, offering electronic aids for trailering, such as Pro Trailer Backup Assist, Trailer Brake Controller, Smart Hitch, On-Board Scales, Smart Trailer Tow Connection, and Trailer Reverse Guidance.
Ford anticipates a 320-mile driving range, but the EPA hasn’t provided official figures yet. Models with the extended-range battery boast a robust 580-horsepower dual-motor powertrain, while those with the standard battery offer 452 horsepower.
The 2024 F-150 Lightning lineup offers a variety of options, starting with the Pro at $52,090 and the XLT at $59,590. The Lariat comes in at $79,590, the Platinum at $92,090, and the top-tier Platinum Black at $100,090. All prices include a $2,095 destination charge, reflecting a modest increase from the previous year.
