Ford F-150 Lightning For Sale Near Hayward

There's a reason why full-size pickup trucks have been so popular in this country for so many years. They're powerful, reliable, capable, and versatile, letting you haul bulky cargo and tow trailers, drive on dirt roads, and get around town. But for years, these trucks have come with a pretty big downside: requiring a lot of fossil fuels to operate. Gas- and diesel-powered trucks aren't exactly known for being efficient after all. And for a while, EV technology seemed limited to compact sedans and hatchbacks. But that's not the case anymore.

Today, EVs come in all shapes and sizes, from cars and compact crossovers to large SUVs, minivans, and even full-size pickup trucks. If you're looking for a truck that can get hard jobs done without any emissions, you'll want to come on down to The Ford Store San Leandro to find the perfect EV truck. That means those searching for the Ford F-150 Lightning for sale near Hayward can find it here in our extensive inventory.

This incredible model shares a lot of the traditional gas-powered F-150's benefits and adds in some unique features that can come in handy everywhere from your home during a blackout to a worksite or campsite that's off the grid. Whether you're looking to be eco-friendly or just avoid pain at the pump, the F-150 Lightning should be at the top of your list.

An Overview of the F-150 Lightning

The F-150 Lightning is an all-electric full-size pickup truck that first debuted for the 2022 model year. As a new variation of the perennial best-selling F-Series truck, there were big expectations for the Lightning from the start, and judging by how many accolades it garnered, it met and even exceeded those expectations across the board. The F-150 Lightning has been named North American Truck of the Year, MotorTrend Truck of the Year, a Car and Driver Editors' Choice, and one of Time Magazine's Top 200 Inventions of 2022, just to name a few examples.

Like the F-150 before it, the F-150 Lightning is a capable truck that can carry a significant amount of payload and has a towing capacity that makes it useful for workers and campers alike. Inside, its cab can comfortably seat up to five people and is loaded with a wide array of useful tech features, from infotainment to safety to comfort and convenience. Thanks to its electric powertrain, the F-150 Lightning lives up to its name by being remarkably fast. When it was first released, the 2022 model impressed enthusiasts by being able to get from 0 to 60 mph in just four seconds.

On top of being powerful and quick, it's also highly efficient. Even the oldest 2022 F-150 Lightning is rated at up to 70 MPGe (miles per gallon equivalent) combined and has a range of 320 miles with the extended range battery. The Bay is also home to many public charging stations, several of which are located in Hayward, and you can even get a charging station installed at home so you can power up your truck overnight and be ready to hit the road every morning.

Beyond being lightning fast, this electric truck offers several unique benefits. Since it doesn't have an engine under the hood, that space has been converted into a sealed front trunk. This gives you a secure and weather-proof space outside the cabin to store anything from valuable items acquired on a shopping trip to sensitive equipment you're taking out to a worksite or camping trip.

And while the non-Lightning F-150 does offer an onboard power supply and a pretty powerful one if you opt for the hybrid powertrain, the Lightning takes things a step further. You can use it to power not just a minifridge at a tailgate party or a power tool on a construction site but your entire house in the event of a blackout. Here in California, where fire season can put the reliability of the grid in jeopardy, that's a practical feature that can really come in handy.

Explore Our Selection of New and Pre-Owned Lightning Models

The F-150 Lightning may be just one model of truck, but it offers a lot of variety so that all kinds of drivers can find a version that works for them. There are several different trim levels, ranging from basic and affordable to downright luxurious, with unique exterior accents to help you cruise around the Heart of the Bay in style.

You can also choose between the standard-range battery and an extended-range model, depending on how much driving you do in a day. If you buy a new model, we can easily help you pick the exact trim you're looking for and even guide you through the process of custom ordering an F-150 Lightning directly from the factory if you want to build your truck from the ground up to your exact specifications.

On the other hand, buying used has its benefits. Opting for a pre-owned model can save you money you can pocket for a rainy day, or you can put that extra money toward a higher trim level than you could afford new or the extended-range battery to make your next road trip down I-5 a little more carefree with room for spontaneity. Since the F-150 Lightning has been around since the 2022 model year, it's easier to find used models when compared to competitors that launched later, like the Chevy Silverado EV and Tesla Cybertruck. We're happy to help you find a used model that works for your driving habits and budget.
