Ford F-150 Lightning
NEXT STAGE: New in 2022
The 2022 F-150 Lightning features standard 4-wheel-drive; the F-150's first independent rear suspension; an improved on-board generator that can power a house or work site for three straight days; and the industry's largest front trunk that comes with four power outlets and 14.1 cubic feet of space. Dual electric motors are expected to produce 563 hp and 775 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful F-150 to date. There are two battery options: a standard-range that is expected to get 230 miles to a charge, and an extended-range that's set to get 300 miles. The pickup can also tow up to 10,000 pounds and haul up to 2,000 pounds.
The Lightning features a light bar that runs horizontally across the front of the vehicle and connects the tops of both headlights, with a similar taillight design. The grille area is closed off but largely resembles the size, shape and color of the grilles on gasoline-powered trucks. The Lightning also has the same cab and bed dimensions as the gasoline F-150 to accommodate thousands of accessories. In total, the Lightning's curb weight is between 1,000 and 1,500 pounds heavier than the gasoline-powered F-150
The Lightning will come in four trims, all of which will be available at the start of production. The base model will start at $39,974 before shipping. After the base model, the XLT starts at $52,974, and the high-end Platinum starts at around $90,000. The automaker declined to provide shipping charges or pricing for the Lariat trim, which falls between the XLT and Platinum.
Ford will limit output in the first year on sale, according to CEO Jim Farley. It will be assembled at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Mich., with sales scheduled to begin in spring 2022.
