Ford reveals a sleek and modern take on its new all-electric pickup with a special edition vehicle – the new F-150 Lightning Platinum Black Edition. Designed for those customers desiring an electric truck with a powerful look and superior technology, this truck is anything but ordinary. Starting at $97,995, the F-150 Lightning Platinum Black brings an exclusive twist to the already dynamic F-150 line.
The F-150 Lightning Platinum Black sets itself apart as a monochromatic electric truck, combining the high-end Platinum trim level with a unique matte black wrap. Not only is it the company’s first-ever matte-wrapped production truck, but it also exemplifies new levels of style and luxury with various aesthetic touches, establishing itself as the perfect choice for customers aiming to make a definitive statement.
Equipped with an estimated range of 300 miles and a standard extended-range battery, the F-150 Lightning Platinum Black offers an impressive blend of performance and visual appeal. And with only 2,000 units to be produced, the exclusivity is sure to catch the eye of those eager for a distinct look, as deliveries are set to begin in early 2024.
What makes this truck truly stand out is the infusion of matte finishes that are now trending across different industries, alongside classic black features that never go out of style. From 22-inch matte black wheels to a distinctive smoked signature light bar, the F-150 Lightning Platinum Black defies conventional design norms.
Additionally, unique touches such as “Lightning” graphics on the roof glass and luxe black premium Nirvana leather seating surfaces add to its elegance. An aluminum plate in both the “frunk” and in the driver door jamb with limited edition numbering further accentuates the exclusivity.
But it doesn’t just end with aesthetics. The Platinum Black also comes with enhanced technology such as available Ford BlueCruise hands-free highway driving – featuring Lane Change Assist and In-Lane Repositioning. An optimized towing setup experience and Walk Away Locking add to the innovative features that make this electric truck a must-have.
Future owners can also look forward to further enhancements through software updates, ensuring the truck continues to evolve with the times. The updated appearance of Pro Power Onboard, for example, helps customers better understand the truck’s power levels, adding a futuristic and useful touch.
As the F-150 Lightning continues to make waves midway through its second year of production, Ford is on track to triple production, reaching up to 150,000 EV trucks annually. The introduction of the F-150 Lightning Platinum Black is not just a stylish move but a bold statement from Ford, affirming its commitment to both innovation and the environment. With the new F-150 Lightning Platinum Black Edition, Ford’s futuristic pickup has the tech and the looks to match.
