Ford tests the F-150 Lightning towing capacity in extreme conditions, stays mum on the battery discharge rate

If you purchase a new electric Ford F-150 Lightning pickup truck of the more costly Lariat or XLT models that come with with

the Extended Range Battery as well as the Max Trailer Tow Package, it can tow up to 10,000 lbs (4,536 kg).

 The F-150 Lightning's Standard Range Battery versions can tow up to 7,700 lbs (3,493 kg), 

 while the Platinum trim may theoretically tow up to 8,400 lbs (3,810 kg). The F-150 Lightning, 

 however, has already shown that its official specs are, if anything, overly cautious, 

since it was only evaluated as being capable of a 320-mile journey on

 the rigorous EPA battery range estimate test.
