First, it was the Bronco, then came the Maverick, and next year, Ford will once again resurrect a classic nameplate with F-150 Lightning. The designation is certainly fitting for a fully electric pickup truck with a huge battery and generator capability. While the date is set for the spring of 2022, you can reserve your F-150 Lightning today and place an order starting November 1, 2021. Here's a quick overview of a few of its highlights.

Power, Towing, and Payload

Under the hood, the 2022 F-150 Lightning has…14.1 cubic feet of extra cargo space. In lieu of a gas engine, the Lightning finds motivation in a pair of strong electric motors (one on each axle) generating an all-wheel-drive 426 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque. The extended-range battery option boosts horsepower to 563. The F-150 Lightning can tow up to 10,000 pounds and haul up to 2,000 pounds.

Range and Charging

The F-150 Lightning is available in two battery sizes. The standard battery offers an estimated 230 miles of range per charge, while the extended-range battery achieves an estimated 300 miles. With an 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro (included with extended-range models), you can replenish the standard battery in about 10 hours, while the extended-range battery takes just 8 hours. The F-150 Lightning also features 150-kW DC fast charging ability, which can charge either battery from 15% to 80% in under 45 minutes.

Ford Intelligent Backup Power

It's always frustrating when the power goes out, especially if the grid is down for more than a couple of hours. Available Ford Intelligent Backup Power allows the F-150 Lightning to deliver 9.6 kW of peak power via the available 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro. So, you can use it as a reserve generator to power your home for up three days or more, depending on usage. (Based on 30-kWh use per day with extended-range battery).
