After several teasers, Ford has revealed more details about the F-150 Lightning SuperTruck racing truck. On June 23, he will compete in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climbing Competition.

With the race less than a week away, the automaker has announced that the model will feature three electric motors similar to last year’s SuperVan 4.2. Six-phase STARD UHP motors produce over 1400 hp. (1044 kW) and is powered by “ultra-high performance NMC lithium polymer cells.”

In addition to the electric transmission, the pickup truck received an original body that is not similar to the production model. The main focus is on aerodynamics: the pickup is equipped with a three-piece front spoiler, hood air vents, side diffusers, a massive wing and a rear diffuser. All this helps the pickup generate 2.7 tons of downforce at a speed of 240 km/h.

Other features include carbon-ceramic brakes and forged magnesium wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires. The carbon cockpit has one bucket seat and a roll cage.

Pikes Peak veteran Romain Dumas will take the wheel of the SuperTruck to cover the 20-kilometer route. He said:

“After a successful run in 2023, I’m thrilled to be back behind the wheel of a Ford team car and help push the boundaries of what’s possible in electric vehicles. The F-150 Lightning SuperTruck exceeded my expectations in testing, so we’re hoping for good weather to try and do something special.”
