Ford has launched a new limited-edition matte black F-150 Lightning, which looks pretty sick.
Henry Ford famously said that “any customer can have a car painted any color that he wants so long as it’s black” and Ford is reminding us of that with the launch of the new F-150 Lightning Platinum Black.
Even though it’s actually a wrap and not a paint job.
Ford describes the company’s first-ever matte-wrapped production truck:
“The F-150 Lightning Platinum Black is a monochromatic electric truck, combining the tech and power capability of the high-end Platinum trim level wrapped in a unique matte black wrap – the company’s first-ever matte-wrapped production truck.”
Only 2,000 units are going to be built and deliveries will start in early 2024 with a starting price of $97,995.
Ford is making the 300-mile extended-range battery standard on the limited-edition model.
The vehicle features a few design accents unique to the limited edition:
Here are a few more images of the F-150 Lightning Platinum Black:
I am in the market for an electric pickup truck and I’ve been waiting to get the final specs and pricing on the Cybertruck, but this is almost making me forget about the Cybertruck.
I have a weak spot for black matte finishes and for me, this is one bad-ass-looking pickup truck.
