Ford F-150 Lightning Details Reveal Surprising Premium Over Tesla Cybertruck Ford Motor Company

Index

...standard with the F-150 Lightning Lariat + Premium Package, but that starts at $79,474. 

 

The Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat + Premium Package not only comes with the company’s 300-mile range battery. It also comes with a twin-panel moonroof, the company’s BlueCruise driver-assist system and Phone-as-a-Key features.

 

These specs are comparable to the middle-tier Tesla Cybertruck Dual Motor AWD, expected to have a range of 300-plus miles, as well as standard features like a full glass roof, basic Autopilot and Phone Key functions. 

 

The notable difference between the Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat + Premium Package and the Tesla Cybertruck Dual Motor AWD, of course, would be their price. Based on the information reportedly sent by Ford to its customers, the F-150 Lightning Lariat + Premium Package starts at $79,474, while the Cybertruck Dual Motor AWD starts at $49,990 before options. That’s a premium of nearly $30,000 for the F-150 Lightning.

 

With such a price gap in mind, Ford may have to rely on its reputation and pedigree as a truck-maker to ensure the Lightning becomes successful like its internal combustion-powered predecessors.
