The Ford Co-Pilot360™ 2.0 includes several standard technologies. These technologies are:

  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking: This feature helps to detect potential collisions and automatically applies the brakes if necessary to prevent or mitigate the impact.
  • BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert: BLIS® stands for Blind Spot Information System, which alerts the driver if there is a vehicle in their blind spot. Cross-Traffic Alert warns the driver of approaching vehicles when reversing out of a parking space.
  • Lane Keeping System: This system helps the driver stay in their lane by providing steering assistance if the vehicle starts to drift out of the lane without using the turn signal.
  • Reverse Sensing System: This feature assists the driver when reversing by providing audible alerts if there are objects or obstacles detected behind the vehicle.
  • Post-Collision Braking: This technology automatically applies the brakes after a collision to help reduce the likelihood of additional impacts.

These features aim to enhance driver safety and provide additional support in various driving situations.


  • The F-150 Lightning’s cabin is similar to the gasoline-powered F-150 but with a few differences. It has a large infotainment display and a spacious front-trunk cargo bay. The truck is only available as a crew cab with a 5.5-foot bed.
  • Features include 22-inch matte black platinum wheels, black Ford oval badging, power deployable running boards, smoke colored signature light bar, and soft-shell black tonneau cove


  • Production will be limited, so staying updated with the latest updates is crucial
  • Deliveries for the 2024 Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum Black will begin in early 2024


  • The front trunk can carry up to 400 pounds of additional cargo. The standard infotainment system is a 12.0-inch touchscreen with Ford’s Sync 4 software, but higher trims have a larger 15.5-inch display. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, in-dash navigation, and a Wi-Fi hotspot are all included. Optional premium stereo systems from Bang & Olufsen are available, with eight speakers in the Lariat and 18 speakers in the Platinum.

The official maximum towing capacity of the production model is 10,000 pounds, but only trucks with the optional Extended-Range battery can achieve this. Standard-Range battery models are limited to a 7700-pound capacity. The payload capacity ranges from 2000 pounds for the Standard-Range model to 1800 pounds for the Extended-Range model. During a tow test with a 6100-pound double-axle camping trailer, the range of the Lightning Platinum dropped to just 100 miles at 70 mph, significantly lower than its unladen EPA estimate by 200 miles.
