Ford F-150 Lightning for Sale

A black 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning for sale is shown parked near a hill.

Pickup trucks can be used for everything from construction and delivery to moving furniture or kicking back at a tailgate party. Unfortunately, full-size pickup trucks are often inefficient, resulting in both pain at the pump and harmful emissions released into the atmosphere. But with an all-electric truck, you can eat your cake and have it, too, getting all the benefits of owning a truck without relying on fossil fuels for power.

We’re proud to offer the Ford F-150 Lightning for sale here at Ruge's Ford. While the traditional gas-powered F-150 and the hybrid F-150 are both great options, we want to give our customers the option to go fully electric, too. Whether you’re an environmentalist, a futurist, or just want to try something new, we’ve got you covered.

The F-150 Lightning also brings plenty of unique benefits to the table aside from just efficiency, like extra storage options and lightning-quick acceleration. If you want to learn more about the truck of tomorrow, then read on and see what makes it worth considering for truck drivers of all stripes.

An Overview of the F-150 Lightning

The F-150 Lightning first debuted in the 2022 model year, bringing a fully electric option to the popular F-Series. This truck employs the F-150 nameplate and shares a lot of design language with the gas-powered F-150, though it has a completely original powertrain. Long-time Ford fans might recognize where the rest of the name comes from if they remember the SVT F-150 Lightning, which hit the scene back in 1993 as a “sport truck,” promising plenty of power for thrills behind the wheel.

While the 2022 Lightning’s electric motors were very different from the 1993 Lightning’s thirsty V8 engine, they do have something in common beyond their names: their speed. Because electric power delivers near-instant torque, the F-150 Lightning boasted a zero-to-sixty time of just 4.0 seconds in its first model year.

Of course, the name “Lightning” is also a perfect fit for a truck that’s also an EV. The F-150 Lightning uses powerful electric motors to provide the high horsepower and torque figures that truck drivers are looking for. A 2022 model can produce up to 580 hp and 775 lb-ft of torque—the most torque ever produced by any F-150 at the time of its debut. In addition to its quick zero-to-sixty time, this strength also allows for a 10,000-lb towing capacity.

You can use the battery to do more than just power the truck itself: if the F-150 Lightning is hooked up to a compatible home charging station, you can use it to power your entire household in case of a blackout. You can also use onboard outlets to bring electric power to remote campsites, worksites, or tailgate parties—and since there’s no motor taking up space under the hood, the F-150 Lightning also has a secure front trunk that gives another place to store cargo.

Explore Our Selection of New and Used Models

Since the F-150 Lightning has been a great truck with great stats since it first rolled off the assembly line, you can buy either a new or used model without worrying about getting stuck with a dud. Even the earliest models deliver 230 miles of range with the standard battery and 320 miles with the extended-range battery, and they're capable of being charged at home or at public charging stations, like DC Fast Charging units. Buying a used model can help you save money, or you can spring for a higher trim level.

Of course, there are advantages to buying a brand-new F-150 Lightning. For one thing, you’ll get all of the most modern tech features. You’ll also be getting a fresh start on a truck with no previous owner history. Plus, you’ll have the option to lease, making it easier to switch to an even newer model every few years so you can always stay on top of the latest automotive trends.

FAQs About Owning an F-150 Lightning

Many drivers have never owned an EV before, so it’s understandable to have some questions. We’ve rounded up a few here and answered them so you can know what to expect when you buy an F-150 Lightning…

Q) Where can I charge the F-150 Lightning?

A) You can charge the F-150 Lightning at home in a few ways. With the Mobile Power Cord, you can hook your truck up to either a standard 120V outlet or a more powerful 240V outlet. Charging will be slower on a standard outlet, but since it’s the most common type found in the US, it’s good to know that it will work in a pinch.

You can also get a dedicated Ford Connected Charge Station installed at home for even faster and more convenient charging. You can also charge at compatible public EV charging stations, including DC Fast Charging units. If you’re not sure if a station is compatible, you can always consult your owner’s manual, or you can use the FordPass app to find compatible charging stations near you.

Q) How do I use the F-150 Lightning to power my home?

A) To use the Ford Intelligent Backup Power system, you’ll need a capable F-150 Lightning, a Ford Charge Station Pro, and a Home Integration System. The latter can be installed at the same time as the charging station and allows power to flow both ways, so you can charge your truck or let the truck power your home. If you have any questions about particulars, you can always feel free to give us a call.

Q) How is maintenance different for an EV?

A) Overall, EVs require less maintenance than gas-powered vehicles because they have fewer moving parts. Some common maintenance needs can be skipped altogether. For instance, electric motors don’t use motor oil, so you’ll never need to come in for an oil change. However, some things are the same.

For example, tire rotations are still important and need to happen at roughly the same intervals. Levels of non-motor-oil fluids—like brake, transmission, and windshield washer fluids—still need to be maintained. Likewise, while battery health is vital for a conventional gas-powered vehicle, it is even more crucial for an EV.

But don’t worry: you don’t have to figure out your servicing on your own. Between the expert technicians in our service department and the reminders available in the FordPass app, you have all the resources you need to keep your F-150 Lightning running smoothly for miles to come.

Discuss Your Financing Options

Just because you can’t pay the full sticker price of an F-150 Lightning up front doesn’t mean you can’t afford to drive one. Our finance team is here to help you figure out a payment plan that works for you. We work with all kinds of budgets and credit scores, so our team is experienced in crafting plans that suit each of our customer’s needs. If you have any questions during the process, our friendly team is always on hand to clear things up so you can fully understand all of your options before you commit.

Loans and leases are both great ways to pay for a vehicle, but which one is right for you depends on a few factors. If you’re looking for a used vehicle, then that immediately narrows things down to an auto loan, and we’ll help you get a great rate and a timetable that fits into your budget. If you’re buying new, then you can get either a loan or a lease.

With a loan, you’ll eventually own the vehicle outright, and there are no restrictions on how many miles you can drive or what kinds of accessories or parts you can install. A lease has some restrictions on these types of things since you’ll be turning the vehicle back in at the end of the leasing period, but it has advantages, too. Leases typically have lower monthly payments and they make it easy to switch to a brand-new model every few years. If you’re not sure which is the best fit for you, you can always talk to our finance team.
