The all-electric 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning is set to gain an increase in its battery range. Ford recently announced that the innovative pickup truck would also get an upgraded new trailer hitch assist feature.

Specifically, the new mile range for the Ford F-150 Lightning went up by 10 miles – now 240 from 230. which may not seem like a lot. However, this increase is an improvement in the pickup’s overall performance. Owners using the truck’s extended battery will also see an improvement in range. This new increase will come standard on the new F-150 Lightnings produced in the Fall. Additionally, these trucks will have two extra exterior color options available: Avalanche Gray and Azure Gray.


While the blue oval company has been reliably making improvements to the F-150 Lightning, Ford has also endeavored to increase the overall production of the new pickup.

"Due to significant material cost increases and other factors, Ford has [also] adjusted MSRP starting with the opening of the next wave of F-150 Lightning orders," Ford said in a press release.
