2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash Officially Debuts

Set to enter its third model year of production, the Ford F-150 Lightning has thus far carried over with few changes, which isn’t terribly surprising for a brand new model. However, that’s seemingly changing for the 2024 model year, as Ford recently revealed the F-150 Lightning Platinum Black, which is the very first production Blue Oval pickup to come from the factory wearing a matte wrap, along with a host of additional darkened elements. Back in June, Ford trademarked “Flash,” hinting at the upcoming arrival of yet another new variant, and now, that has come to fruition in the form of the all-new 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash.

While the 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash isn’t the performance-focused model some thought it might be, it is a compelling option for those in the market for an EV pickup that’s packed with all the tech goodies and the extended range battery at a more reasonable price. Sitting above the XLT in the trim level lineup, the Flash offers up 320 miles of range thanks to the bigger battery pack, all with a starting price tag of $69,995.

That money also nets buyers a host of tech goodies including the larger 15.5-inch touchscreen, an eight-speaker B&O sound system with a subwoofer, the wireless charging pad, power tailgate, Tow Technology Package, Tailgate Step with Tailgate Work Surface, and – perhaps most notably – a heat pump, which helps preserve range in cold weather conditions. Additionally, BlueCruise 1.2 is available as an option, too. Order banks for the 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Flash are set to open up in early 2024.

“The F-150 Lightning Flash is a direct outcome of engaging with and learning from our customers,” said Marin Gjaja, Chief Operating Officer, Ford Model e. “This truck combines many of the technology-forward features our customers love in our EV lineup, at a more accessible price. With an EPA-estimated 320 miles of range, the Lighting Flash is another example of the speed at which we are adapting to grow our EV business.”

    It’s too bad you can’t get rid of that horrible vertical screen. If I were in the market for an EV, that vertical screen would be enough for me to skip it.

      The NHTSB gets itself involved in a zillion different transportation issues, and yet they are silent on these massive distraction-inducing screens that are finding their way into more and more vehicles.

    Will there ever be an honest to goodness Ford EV truck?
    As in 2 doors and a proper bed? If anyone builds that instead of a car with an topless trunk, I’d gladly buy it.
