2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash Adds More Tech Features, Long Range Battery

Ford offering a bargain Lightning

  • Lightning Flash gets big screen, big battery, smaller price

  • All the tech with less of the Lux

We were expecting the Ford F-150 Lightning Flash to be a high-performance version of the pickup. Something like the original 1990s Lightning was to that generation pickup. But instead, the 2024 Lightning Flash is a new trim that goes for range and tech at a somewhat bargain price.

The Ford F-150 Lightning Flash sits between XLT and Lariat. It gets the 320-mile extended range battery and the bigger 15.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Ford says this is what buyers want. “The F-150 Lightning Flash is a direct outcome of engaging with and learning from our customers. This truck combines many of the technology-forward features our customers love in our EV lineup, at a more accessible price” said Marin Gjaja, Chief Operating Officer, Ford Model e.

On top of the extra range and big screen, the truck will get intelligent access with approach detection, wireless device charging, power tailgate, B&O audio, and the tow tech package that comes with trailer backup assist, onboard scales, and more.

The F-150 Lightning Flash will also get a heat pump, helping improve the truck’s range when the temperatures drop. BlueCruise, Ford’s hands-off driver assistance package, is on the options list.

Ford is pricing the 2024 F-150 Lightning Flash from $69,995. The line starts with Lightning Pro at $49,995, then has XLT at $57,995, Lariat at $77,495, and Platinum for $89,995. Expect the 2024 Lightning EV at dealers soon.
