Ford is unveiling the latest addition to its lineup, the F-150 Lightning Flash. This cutting-edge model combines a host of beloved features cherished by its existing customer base, all while maintaining an attractive price point of under $70,000.
The F-150 Lightning Flash is an expansion of the XLT model line, incorporating highly sought-after technological enhancements. These include an extended-range battery with a targeted EPA-estimated range of 320 miles, the availability of Ford BlueCruise for hands-free highway driving, and the inclusion of a standard 15.5-inch touchscreen for effortless interactions and navigation. The F-150 Lightning Flash caters to customers who appreciate the advantages of an electric powertrain and advanced technology features, all while maintaining an accessible price point. It continues to leverage the F-150’s well-established reputation for versatility, capable of accommodating people, pets, and cargo with ease.
Incorporating advanced technology to enhance the driving experience, Ford’s hands-free highway driving system, known as Ford BlueCruise, can alleviate stress and add enjoyment to the journey. The F-150 Lightning Flash features BlueCruise version 1.2, which introduces Lane Change Assist, enabling drivers to change lanes in a hands-free manner by simply activating the turn signal when it’s safe to do so. In-Lane Repositioning is another valuable addition, helping the vehicle stay within its lane while making subtle adjustments to maintain safe distances from adjacent vehicles. This technology will continuously improve through regular software updates.
Ford also offers a flexible subscription option, giving customers the freedom to activate BlueCruise at their convenience, be it at the time of purchase, on an annual basis, or even on a monthly basis. To build customer confidence, a complimentary 90-day trial of BlueCruise is available from the date of vehicle purchase, allowing customers to experience its advantages firsthand.
