Performance

For a long time, electric vehicles have been stuck with the stigma that they could never offer the type of performance a driver could get from their gas-powered counterparts. Nothing could be further from the truth. The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning offers a 100% electric powertrain, with two motors and a battery, as well as top-notch performance and capability. It can go from zero to 60 in the mid four second range. There are two available powertrains. One has two electric motors and a smaller battery. That one can deliver 426 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque. The other powertrain has a larger battery and two electric motors. It can generate 563 horsepower and 775 pound-ft of torque.

Drivers may enjoy hearing that the Ford F-150 Lightning comes standard with four-wheel drive for those unpredictable road conditions in the Chicagoland area. The F-150 Lightning can tow up to 10,000-pounds when properly equipped. It also has off-roading capability, thanks to the four-wheel drive, ground clearance, and available skid plates.

Electric Range

With the smaller battery and two electric motors, the F-150 Lightning has an EPA-estimated 230-miles of range on a single charge. If you opt for the bigger battery, the F-150 Lightning has an EPA-estimated 300-miles of range in one charge. Either way you choose, it is clear that you can go a long way with this Ford truck without needing to charge again.

There is an increasing amount of charging stations going up all over the country. Since electric vehicles are looked at as the future of the driving landscape, this continues to happen. Also, any F-150 Lightning with the extended battery comes standard with the 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro.

One of the most impressive things about the F-150 Lightning is that it can act as a generator for your home. It can provide a home power for three days if its battery is charged up. Something like that can be handy when the power goes out.

Storage

Customers can count on the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning having a lot of intriguing and innovative storage solutions. Because of the electric powertrain, the F-150 Lightning can offer storage through its Mega Power Frunk. Since there is no engine in the front of the truck, that space can be utilized for luggage, equipment, or whatever you want to load in there. There is 14.1 cubic feet of storage space, as well as a 400-pound payload capacity.

Additionally, drivers can use the bed for storage. It has a payload capacity of 2,000-pounds. Overall, you can see how much you can store when you buy or lease a Ford F-150 Lightning. The independent rear suspension means that you can load up your F-150 Lightning and still enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride.
