Let's Talk Extras

The Ford F-150 Lightning is hard-working, strong, and stunning. Besides its impressive electric powertrain, capabilities, and technological advancements, the Ford F-150 Lightning can also do other things. These include:

Ford Intelligent Backup Power

The Ford F-150 Lightning can act as a generator for your home if the power goes out. Yes, you read that right. If a storm comes through Dawsonville, Blairsville, or beyond and your power goes out, you can use your Ford F-150 Lightning to keep the lights on. Here's how it works.

  • Charge Your Truck at Home – When you get back from work, plug your Ford F-150 Lightning into the available 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro (preferably installed in your garage). The Lightning will be charged through the power grid.
  • Power Your Home – If the power goes out, you can set the Ford Intelligent Backup Power to act as a generator and power your home. You can decide whether you'd like this feature to be automatic or manual. A fully-charged Ford F-150 Lightning can typically provide enough power to allow full-home power for three days. If the power is rationed, you could go for as many as ten days.

If you have Sunrun, the nation's leading solar company, install your Ford Charge Station Pro, you could also purchase solar energy for your house. This collaboration between Ford and Sunrun is a great way to utilize solar energy to its max. Charge your Ford F-150 Lightning with clean, renewable energy from your Sunrun solar panels.

Pro Power Onboard

If you notice that one of your Ellijay, Dahlonega, or Murphy, NC, area drivers has lost all power in their electric vehicle, you can use the Pro Power Onboard feature to "share" range with them. Simply plug in your Ford F-150 Lightning to your neighbor's EV, and they'll receive enough power to get them to their next charging destination. Pro Power Onboard is said to add an average of 20 miles per charging hour, depending on the electric vehicle in need.
