Ford will reveal the all-new F-150 Lightning on May 19 at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, MI. The F-150 Lightning will be all-electric and is Ford’s smartest and most innovative truck yet. The F-150 Lightning will bring new innovation, technologies and capabilities to the F-Series, and will provide the same power, payload and towing capability that is the hallmark of all Built Ford Tough trucks.

“Every so often, a new vehicle comes along that disrupts the status quo and changes the game … Model T, Mustang, Prius, Model 3. Now comes the F-150 Lightning,” said Ford President and CEO Jim Farley. “America’s favorite vehicle for nearly half a century is going digital and fully electric. F-150 Lightning can power your home during an outage; it’s even quicker than the original F-150 Lightning performance truck; and it will constantly improve through over-the-air updates.”

The F-150 Lightning will be revealed live at 9:30 p.m. EDT, May 19, from Ford World Headquarters. You can watch the reveal on most national publications as well as the Ford Facebook and YouTube channels, Twitter and out-of-home locations such as Times Square in New York City and Las Vegas Boulevard.

“The truck of the future will be built with quality and a commitment to sustainability by Ford-UAW workers at the Ford Rouge Complex — the cathedral of American manufacturing and our most advanced plant.”

Production of the F-150 Lightning will begin next spring at the all-new Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, which is part of the historic Rouge Complex in Dearborn, Michigan.
