The new Ford F-150 Lightning will come with exclusive Ford technologies that will provide customers with more accurate vehicle range estimates that will be based on n actual towing experiences and real-time energy use. Features such as Intelligent Range and FordPass Power My Trip with the available class-exclusive Onboard Scales will work to give the range estimates to the users while a facility called Trailer Profile will remember the trailer specifics so the system can associate energy use for each trailer used.

Ford-exclusive Intelligent Range will collect key vehicle data to determine how much electrical energy drivers are using in real-time. This will include traffic speed, ambient temperature, available battery energy, plus driver habits, climate control use and route topography. The system will also use cloud computing to measure energy use from other similar types of Ford electric vehicles operating in similar situations, which will give more accurate vehicle range calculations over time.

Chief engineer, F-150 Lightning, Linda Zhang said with the launch of the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck many will become first-time owners of an electric vehicle who will expect Ford's tough capability along with strong towing mechanism. “That’s why we created smart technologies to help take the worry out of towing long distances by giving customers more reliable and accurate range calculations, and then automatically locate charge points along the way if needed," added Zhang.
