Actually, Lightnings are great for towing!

Discover the legacy of excellence that the F-150 has maintained as Canada's preferred truck for over five decades, earning its distinction as the best-selling truck since 1966. Now, Ford proudly introduces the F-150 Lightning, extending this tradition of reliability, versatility, and performance into the realm of electric vehicles. Seamlessly transitioning from urban landscapes to rugged terrains, and from worksites to off-road adventures, the F-150 Lightning embodies the essence of adaptability. What's more, it accomplishes all this at a notably reduced cost, making it an economical choice for those seeking efficiency without compromise – yes, that includes towing.


Unveiling remarkable power and capabilities, the F-150 Lightning commands attention with its impressive specifications. Boasting an exceptional 580 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque in Extended Range Battery models, it sets a new standard for towing capacity, effortlessly handling loads of up to 10,000 pounds. While towing inevitably affects range, the extent of this impact varies depending on factors such as payload weight and driving conditions. Our team is dedicated to equipping drivers with the knowledge and guidance needed to optimize the Lightning's performance, ensuring a seamless towing experience.



Beyond raw power, the F-150 Lightning offers an array of innovative features designed to streamline the towing process. From integrated scales that monitor payload weight to Pro Trailer Hitch Assist, which simplifies hitch alignment, every detail is meticulously crafted to enhance convenience and safety. While towing may incur a reduction in range, our tests have shown that this decrease aligns with industry norms and remains comparable to that of traditional internal combustion engine vehicles. Ultimately, whether hauling a camper, boat, or trailer, the F-150 Lightning proves to be a reliable companion, reaffirming its position as the epitome of electric towing prowess.
