Ford presented the 2022 F-150 Lightning this year as the automaker’s very first truck to feature a fully electric powertrain. More powerful than ever, the Lightning boasts all the assets of the F series of pickups—the best sellers in Canada for 55 years—in addition to offering clean energy and enabling you to say goodbye to visits to the pump. If you’ve been hesitant to buy a pickup because you’re concerned about fuel consumption, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will lay those concerns to rest!
Ford kept the 2022 F-150 Lightning’s powertrain a closely guarded secret until the very last minute. So Pinard Ford is very excited to be able to give you more information on the capabilities of the two electric motors that propel this unique pickup. Located in two different parts of the Lightning, the motors are powered by cutting-edge lithium-ion batteries, which don’t compromise the Lightning’s cargo volume in the least. The pickup can be equipped with standard batteries or available extended-range batteries, which offer an estimated range of up to 480 kilometers.
With this powertrain, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning can also tow a maximum of 10,000 pounds. It can be optionally equipped with Trailer Reverse Guidance (displaying several different camera angles), Pro Trailer Hitch Assist (which controls the steering, braking and acceleration of the Lightning so you can hook up your trailer with ease) and Pro Trailer Backup Assist, as well as Onboard Scales and Smart Hitch, two apps that help you correctly distribute the weight of your loads, whether in the bed of the pickup or in a trailer. The payload capacity can reach up to 2,000 pounds, including 400 pounds in the front trunk, which is hidden beneath the hood. With regard to power, the F-150 Lightning can deliver up to 563 hp and 775 lbf·ft of torque when equipped with the extended-range battery. Have you had doubts about the performance an electric vehicle can offer? The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has more surprises in store!
