The Ford F-150 has been part of the American auto industry since the late 1940s and has become one of the most popular private and commercial vehicles on the planet.
It was sold in various configurations, powered by different propulsion methods, and had many finishes. Now the line adds a whole new version to its catalog.

This is as believable and realistic a rendering as it is. An electric Raptor like this is perhaps inevitable at some point if it manages to survive the slaughter of the internal combustion engine, and if it does, we hope it's something like the graphical interpretation you see here.
The Raptor profile is present and the truck sits on similar-looking Raptor tires and rims but with blue accents. These look great and set it apart from the standard Raptor.
Continuing the Raptor theme, the plastic wheel arch extensions and graphics remind us that this is a machine with similar intentions to the current Raptor.
On the front, the most notable update is the grid which is a closed unit like in Lightning. The headlights are also F-150 Lightning units.
Details about the Ford F-150 Lightning Raptor
The Ford F-150 Lightning is a unique vehicle, its only competitors are the GMC Hummer EV and the Rivian R1T, but unlike those rivals, the Lightning is completely unassuming.
While the Hummer and Rivian take a more futuristic approach, the Lightning is just a regular F-150.
On the hood of the vehicle, there is an air duct also in black, like the rest of the Raptor's finishing parts.
While from the back, the rear looks remarkably well rendered and obviously lacks an exhaust pipe due to the absence of emissions.
In short, you can imagine this being a future option, and regardless of subjectivity, a Lightning Raptor would likely sell well today.
This brings us to the all-important engine issue, the Raptor focus.
All current F-150 Lightnings are equipped with dual engines, one on each axle, and provide permanent all-wheel drive. The base configuration produces 452 hp and is 775 lb. ft of torque.
The smaller battery version also supports a 2000lb payload.
The higher specification produces 580 hp and the same amount of torque.
The larger battery provides a stronger chassis, meaning it has a payload of around 2,235 pounds.
The Lightning's great advantage is that it has independent rear suspension, unlike the regular F-150, so it behaves better and more accurately. It also helps the driver control the 6,600-pound weight of the entire vehicle.
