Ford F-150 Lightning 2022 Review

The Ford F-150 Lightning made its debut in the middle of 2021 to a lot of hoopla, offering full-size pickup truck functionality for about $40,000.



Ford has announced its plans to launch a new version of the F-150 lightning 2022 pickup truck in 2022. The company says that the new model will feature a hybrid powertrain, and be more fuel-efficient than the current generation. 

Ford is getting closer to putting the all-electric F-150 Lightning into production. It made its debut in the middle of 2021 to a lot of hoopla, offering full-size pickup truck functionality for about $40,000. Getting into a Lightning with 300 miles of range, on the other hand, will cost a lot more money. And a Platinum with all of the bells and whistles is about as near to six digits as you can get.

Ford F-150 Lightning 2022: Everything You Need To Know

According to the automaker’s top executive, the new Ford F-150 is expected to arrive in showrooms by mid-2022. He said that it would become the most fuel-efficient F-Series ever produced. The new model will also come with an all-electric option, which we have seen before from Ford.

The new F-150 lightning 2022 will be built at the Michigan Assembly Plant (MAP) in Wayne, Michigan. This plant currently produces the F-150 SuperCrew and Raptor models. It was previously reported that the new model would be built alongside the existing F-150. However, this report seems incorrect as the new model will be completely different from the one currently on sale.

Ford F-150 EV

Since the new model will be based on the 2020 Ranger, we expect many changes.

The new model will be based on the same platform as the current F-150, but it will use a different body style. The vehicle will reportedly look similar to the upcoming 2020 Ranger mid-size pickup truck.

Onboard Performance

According to Ford, the new F-150 will offer better performance than the current model. In addition, the automaker claims that it will be faster than other trucks in its class. The new model will be equipped with a 3.5-litre V6 engine producing 310 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque. A 2.7-litre diesel engine will also be available for those who want even greater off-road capability.

The new F150 will also be equipped with a 10-speed automatic transmission. This should allow the vehicle to accelerate quickly and deliver strong performance.

The new model will also be equipped with a four-wheel drive. This means that the vehicle will handle any terrain.

Fuel Economy And CO2 Emissions

The new Ford electric vehicles will be much more efficient than the current model in terms of fuel economy. The automaker claims that the new model will achieve up to 15 miles per gallon in city driving conditions.

This figure drops slightly when the vehicle is driven on highways. The company expects the new model to return 16 mpg while traveling interstates.

The new model is expected to emit around 100 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer. This is significantly lower than the current model, which emits around 170 g/km.

The new model will be available with two powertrains: a gas and an electric. The latter will be powered by a battery pack under the cargo bed.

Top Features

Several features will make the new Ford F-150 electric stand out from the crowd. These include:

  • An all-new interior design
  • A redesigned exterior
  • Upgraded technology
  • Improved safety
  • New engines
  • More space
  • Lower cost

Price

The price of the new F-150 has not been announced yet. However, rumors suggest that it could start at $30,000.

Interior

One of the most important aspects of the new model is the interior. Since the new model will be based on the 2020 Ranger, we expect many changes. For example, the cabin will feature a brand new dashboard.

The new model will also get rid of the center console. Instead, the automaker will install a touchscreen display between the front seats. It will be used to control various navigation, entertainment systems, etc.

Ahead of this change, Ford introduced a similar system in the Explorer SUV. The company claimed that it would improve driver comfort.

Exterior

Another major difference between the old model and the new one is the exterior. As mentioned earlier, the new model will be lighter than the current model. This will help reduce the overall weight of the truck.

As a result, the new model will look sleeker than the current model. On top of that, the automaker will equip the new model with LED headlights.

Engine

The engine lineup for the new model remains unchanged. There will still be three different V8, EcoBoost, and diesel.

The base engine will remain the 5.0L V8. This unit produces 365 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque.

The next step up will be the 6.7L V8. This engine generated 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque paired with a six or eight-speed automatic transmission.

Finally, the top-of-the-line model will be the 7.3L V10. This unit produces 510 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque thanks to its 10 valves configuration.

These units come paired with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission.

Our Verdict

The new F-150 lightning 2022 looks like a great option for anyone looking for a powerful, capable, and affordable mid-size truck from the range of ford electric vehicles. Many changes will improve the overall quality of the vehicle. The new model might not be as popular as the previous generation, but this does not mean that it will fail. It is still one of the most sought-after vehicles in the market.
