Set to enter its third year of production, the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning hasn’t received any major updates thus far, but there are two new models joining the lineup for the 2024 model year – the Flash, which comes equipped with some more popular options among customers at a more reasonable price, and the Platinum Black, which is a pricier, dark-themed model with all the bells and whistles. Recently, Ford Authority was able to check out the new 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum Black up close, giving us a better look at its unique features.
Those start up front with a black Ford oval badge and a smoked signature light bar, which is just part of a theme that highlights the fact that the 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum Black is the first production FoMoCo truck to feature a matte wrap from the factory. That theme continues down the sides, where we find Agate Black accented power-deployable running boards, Agate Black door handles, and 22-inch matte black wheels and lug nuts.
In the rear, the F-150 Lightning Platinum Black features a black-on-black Lightning badge that the company says will “appear to” glow when lights flash over it at night, along with a soft-shell black tonneau cover. BlueCruise 1.2 is available as an option, and the recently-tweaked Pro Power Onboard will now work while the truck is switched off.
The 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum Black features a lofty starting MSRP of $97,995, but production is limited to just 2,000 units. Deliveries are currently slated to begin in early 2024, though order banks opened up back in September, with production set to kick off at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in December, as Ford Authority reported last week.
