Heavily modified Ford F-150 Lightning headed to Pikes Peak

Electric Truck Racing Pikes Peak

In 2024, Ford Performance will make a repeat visit to the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, but it will not be bringing a van. It will compete in the 102nd edition of the competition with a significantly altered F-150 Lightning that appears significantly broader and lower than the original model.


The Ford Performance teaser graphic depicts the general shape of a truck that resembles a race car more than a vehicle you might buy at Home Depot. There is not much ground clearance, and we can make out a large, wrap-around rear wing through the cover.


It had a body kit made especially for the race and was propelled by three electric motors with a combined output of 1,400 horsepower. The race begins at approximately 9,400 feet and climbs to a top at approximately 14,100 feet. As a result, teams racing gasoline-powered cars must account for this substantial elevation difference while planning their engine.


Ford will provide additional information about the F-150 Lightning heading to Pikes Peak over the next few months. June 18–20 are the qualification days; June 23 is the race date. The company has disclosed that the Ford electric truck will compete under the 150 designation.
