If you’re looking for an all-electric full-size pickup truck, there is currently only one available: the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning™.
Available in seven trims, from Pro to XLT to Lariat to Platinum, you can pick the truck that best fits your lifestyle and needs. For example, if you’re looking for a workhorse truck, you’re going to want to look at the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro.
According to Ford, the Pro was “Purpose built for commercial customers, it blends familiar Built Ford Tough power, capability and durability with a high-tech electric platform that adds new capabilities and features designed to improve productivity and reduce operating costs– while also delivering zero emissions.”
“F-150 Lightning Pro represents so much more than an electric workhorse – it’s made for commercial customers inside and out, it gets better over time, and it’s totally plugged into always-on services that can help business productivity. As more companies make the commitment to go carbon neutral, they are going to expect electric products that can integrate into their operations easily. Ford is so uniquely positioned to answer this call because we have a zero-emissions pickup and van, many of our customers want both vehicles in their fleet.” – Jim Farley, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company
Don’t worry about the fact that the Lightning is all-electric; it still delivers 426-horsepower 4×4 powertrain and 775 lb.-ft.of torque. The base truck has a targeted 2,000-pound maximum payload capacity and is targeting up to 5,000 pounds of towing capability – and up to 7,700 pounds with the optional Max Trailer Tow package.
Ford ensured they made no compromise in terms of innovation, power or capability.
Key features of the Ford F-150 Lightning Pro include:
- Dual Electric Motors: one inboard motor on each axle
- Ford Co-Pilot360™ 2.0: suite of driver-assist features
- Mega Power Frunk: four Pro Power Onboard 120V outlets under the hood
Not to mention, if you need more power, towing capacity, or range, Ford offers an extended-range version with an EPA-estimated 300-mile range.
The Lightning includes an 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro which — when combined with the included onboard dual chargers — enables affordable Level 2 overnight charging using battery-friendly AC power.
Plus, for those in Texas who remember the winter storm of 2021 where we went days without power, the Ford Lightning can even help power your home when connected to the 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro. For up to three days! (more if rationed properly)
Additional features of the F-150 Lightning Pro include:
- easy-to-clean vinyl seats
- standard SYNC® 4 with 12-inch color LCD touch screen
- full-size spare tire mounted under 5.5-foot cargo bed
- mounting points for easy upfitting with a standard Class IV hitch
- Intelligent Range system that calculates battery range needed to complete a trip
- standard 120/240-volt AC charger
Finally, Ford BlueCruise technology offers you hand-free driving over more than 130,000 miles of designated highways in North America. A driver-facing camera ensures you keep your eyes on the road and works in collaboration with the Ford Co-Pilot360 2.0 package.
