The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning is all the good things you love about the regular gas-powered F-150 in an all-electric powertrain. The absence of the engine noise might turn your nerves up but you can get over it in time. The electric pickup will satisfy you with its rapid acceleration and precise steering feedback resulting in a sweet driving experience you will not regret. The pickup offers magnificent performance, a spacious and feature-rich cabin, good payload capacity, and a long driving range.

The pickup goes on par with the rivals like the Hummer EV and the Rivian R1T when it comes to driving capabilities and performance. But doesn’t match the power and added features and towing abilities that the Rivan and the Hummer EV offer.
