New Ford Ford F-150 Lightning for Sale in Hyannis, MA
An all-electric pickup truck that can tow up to 10,000 pounds or carry 2,000 pounds of payload? With stats like those, it’s got to be a Ford F-150. Yes, the automotive world is amped up for the upcoming 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, the first all-electric model in the F Series. This excitement is only partly because America’s best-selling vehicle in history has yet another variant: it’s also big news because of what it can accomplish without any visits to the fuel pump. The F-150 Lightning’s release will come on the heels of the first-ever gas-electric F-150 Hybrid, giving the undisputed ruler of the truck kingdom a pair of alternative-fuel choices for the eco-minded driver. The units will be manufactured at the newly opened Rogue Electric Vehicle Center, a zero-waste-to-landfill facility in Ford’s command center of Dearborn, Michigan. As assembly gets under way, we’ll run through everything we’ve verified about this innovative and capable debut model.
Appearance, Power and Other Stats
Everyone will know by its looks that the Lightning is definitely an F-150, but there are some components that were designed uniquely for this electric version, such as its running boards, grille designs, hood, and signature LED light bar across the front fascia.
What we all want to know about, though, is its power stats. Two motors make up the all-electric powertrain, producing 563 horsepower and 775 lb.-ft. of torque – and, of course, absolutely no emissions. This output tops every other F-150, and its capabilities for towing and payload are, as mentioned above, 10,000 pounds and 2,000 pounds, respectively. All trims will get standard four-wheel drive and a mode selector with settings for Normal, Sport, Tow/Haul, and Off-Road.
The standard range battery will give Lightning drivers about 230 miles of range to a full charge, and the extended range battery will take that up to 300 miles. The base charger will supply about 30 driving miles per hour on the charger. The 150 kW fast charger raises that to 54 miles of charge in just 10 minutes of plugged-in time. A mere 41 fast-charger minutes will take the battery from 15% power to 80%. Since this is truly an off-road vehicle, Ford has done well to protect the lithium-ion battery pack from the rocks with a rugged exostructure.
The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning had to prove its toughness just like any other F Series truck, and it did so with flying colors. Its high-strength body is made from military-grade aluminum alloy – the strongest steel ever used in an F-150 – and Ford has engineered an all-new independent rear suspension for it.
Plenty of Features for a Productive Day
So much thought has gone in to the development of this groundbreaking vehicle, with many features to help the work crew get more done. The 360-degree Zone Lighting System illuminates the area surrounding the Lightning, just in case you need to work past nightfall – or if you’re tailgating at an evening game. There are even handy work surfaces that fold out of both the truck bed and the interior.
Extra Innovation: Ford Intelligent Backup Power
Power outages are a fact of life, and an extended one can be more than inconvenient, especially during extreme weather. The F-150 Lightning’s most unique feature allows it to serve as a generator, powering your home’s lights and other essential systems (refrigerator, cooling, electric heat, security system, sump pump, etc.). Ford Intelligent Backup Power supplies 9.6 kW of power that can keep everything running in the average-sized home for 3 days; with selective use of that power, this innovative feature can supply up to 10 days of juice.
The Pro Power Onboard generator supplies a standard 2.4 kW of power (the Lariat and Platinum get 9.6 kW) to the truck’s built-in electrical outlets to run tools and other equipment at job sites where electricity isn’t otherwise available. You can use the FordPass app to keep an eye on power management: when the truck’s battery falls below one-third of full power, an alert will be sent to your smartphone.
The F-150 Lightning is about innovation and technology as much as it’s about capability. Ford is giving the two highest trims the newest version of its infotainment system, SYNC 4A, with an ample 15.5-inch touchscreen; a customizable 12-inch instrument cluster with animated graphics will also be offered. But the biggest headlines are about BlueCruise, a technology that enables hands-free driving on 100,000 miles of road that meet the parameters for semiautonomous driving (no intersections or pedestrians, for starters). The Lightning also debuts a technology called Onboard Scales, which estimates payload so the driver will know how much they can carry.
