We don't anticipate many changes for the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning considering it just made its debut in 2022, but perhaps drivers will be pleasantly surprised with some improvements to the driver-assist features. Continue reading for our most recent projections based on information from 2022.
- XLT Extended Range
- Lariat Extended Range
- Platinum Extended Range
The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning will continue to be propelled by 2 electric motors with standard all-wheel drive, unless we are informed otherwise. The 98 kWh battery used in the Standard Range option has a 230 mile range, while the 131 kWh battery used in the Extended Range version has a 320 mile range. Ford claims that the 2023 Lightning will produce 563 horsepower and 775 lbs-ft of torque thanks to the Extended Range battery and two motors. The payload is estimated to be roughly 2,000 pounds, while the maximum towing capacity (when equipped with the Max Trailer Tow package and Extended Range battery) is 10,000 pounds. The Extended Range battery will also come with a normal 80-amp charging station.
Based on what we saw in 2022, here’s some estimates on driver-assist technology which we hope to see more of for the 2023 F-150 Lightning.

We don't anticipate the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning to undergo much changes as it was only introduced in 2022. We foresee a few small improvements here and there, such as in the tech area or mile ranges, and we'll let you know as soon as we learn more. Stay tuned.
