Ford F-150 Lightning – 2022 First Impression Test Drive

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning could become the ultimate truck.

America’s best-selling truck for 45 years, the Ford F-Series, is going 100% Electric. The 2022 F-150 Lightning is slowly hitting the streets, and I had the opportunity to spend quality time with the latest EV. The Lightning is the fastest-accelerating F-150 to date. It does 0-60 mph in the mid-4-second range when equipped with an extended-range battery. The Electric motors provide 580 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque. As you can see, no engine allows for a Mega Power Frunk. So you get 400 liters of volume and 400 pounds of payload with the extra storage space. It has an available maximum payload capacity of 2,235 pounds in the standard-range model with 18-inch wheels and a maximum of 10,000 pounds of available towing capacity on XLT and Lariat trucks with the extended-range battery and Max Trailer Tow Package.

First Reaction

The Lightning is just like any F-150. It has tons of options regarding trim choice and additional features. The only difference is that it is electric, but it is still FORD Tough. The quality of the build is just as solid as any F-150 you see on the road. No corners have been cut. The immediate power from the electric motors is such a thrill and makes such a heavy vehicle feel light and nimble. The capability when it comes to power tools and even your house is impressive, and that is thanks to the 10-kilowatt Pro Power Onboard system. The everyday use that Lightning can offer will be an exciting task to explore in my upcoming extensive review.

The starting price of the 2022 Ford Lightning seen above is $67,474.

  •  4×4 Supercrew Lariat
  • Smoked Quartz Exterior
  • Dual Motor Extended Range

The total MSRP comes outs to $81,099. I look forward to compiling an extensive review of the Ford F-150 Lightning when I get my hands on it for several days!
