Ford F-150 Lightning vs. GMC Sierra EV Denali: Electric Truck Spec Showdown

If the Sierra EV’s specifications fall short of those of the F-150 Lightning from the Big Blue Oval, then it won’t signify anything. When it comes to EVs, range is the most important feature. After all, if the battery can’t get you from home to a jobsite or your place of employment, that essentially defeats the purpose of an EV for the vast majority of customers. According to GMC, the new Sierra EV, which is built on the Ultium platform, has an estimated range of 400 miles at its top trim level. The F-150 Lightning, in contrast, has a maximum projected range of only 320 miles. Although neither range is lacking in any way, the Sierra’s statistics are incredibly remarkable for an EV from any manufacturer.

Ford GM estimates that the Sierra’s dual electric motors produce 754 horsepower and 785 lb-ft of torque, whereas the Ford produces 580 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque when correctly equipped. On the drag strip, GM claims that the GMC Sierra will accelerate to 60 mph in “under 4.5 seconds” when in “Max Power Mode,” while Ford claims that the Lightning lives up to its name by completing the same task in “sub-4 seconds.”
