The 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning has just been awarded the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award for Best Electric Truck, and it is not hard to see why. The F-150 Lightning is the all-electric version of the perennially best-selling Ford F-Series, and it’s a great buy for its reasonable pricing, impressive range, and advanced tech features, according to Kelley Blue Book. With a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds and a maximum payload rating of 2,000 pounds, the F-150 Lightning has some impressive specs for an EV, making it a formidable competitor in the growing electric truck market.
The Ford F-150 Lightning competes against just a couple of other EV pickups – the Rivian R1T and GMC Hummer EV – but this win is still an important one in a segment that’s set to grow exponentially in the coming years. The Blue Oval has secured wins for the Ford Maverick in the compact pickup segment, the Ford Expedition in the full-size SUV category, and the Ford F-150 in the full-size truck space, and now with the F-150 Lightning, Ford continues to solidify its position as a leader in the automotive industry.
Kelley Blue Book tested over 300 new vehicle models available in the U.S. to come up with the winners of the 2023 Best Buy Awards, which spans 19 different categories. Now in its ninth year, the company’s comprehensive awards program highlights the top model in vehicle segments most relevant to new-car shoppers, with new categories added this year to reflect growing electrified vehicle segments. The Best Buy Awards are determined based on a year-long regimen of expert vehicle evaluation, plus an intensive period of final testing. The company’s reviews, ratings, and awards are driven by the analysis of a broad array of vehicle-related data, including vehicle pricing, five-year cost-to-own data, consumer reviews and ratings, and vehicle sales information.
