Top Reasons to Buy the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning
For decades, Ford-F-150s have been thought of as the most dependable and toughest trucks in the world. This year, Ford has introduced its plan to make the F-150 even more impressive. For the first time ever, Ford has created an all-electric pickup truck called the F-150 Lightning.
The Lighting is a stunning pickup truck that comes with a wide range of special features. If you are on the fence about purchasing this all-new truck, here is a look at some of the top reasons why you should buy the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning.
The F-150 Lighting offers two battery pack options. The Standard Range pack has an estimated range of 370 km. The available Extended-Range battery pack has an estimated range of 480 km.
The extended range battery not only provides an impressive amount of range but also has outstanding performance. With this pack, the Lighting can tow up to 10,000 pounds and has a payload capacity of around 2,000 pounds. That is a more impressive towing capacity than most gas-powered pickup trucks have.
Less Expensive to Maintain
If you own a gas-powered pickup truck, you know that they require regular maintenance procedures, like oil changes. The Lighting's all-electric motor has a more simplistic design than gas-powered motors. This means that there is less required maintenance, which will save you hundreds - if not thousands - of dollars each year. Because an EV motor has fewer moving parts, it does not require oil changes and other tune-ups that are common with gas-powered engines.
Electricity When You Need It
If you have a power outage at home, there is no need to worry about the Lighting parked in your garage. The Lighting comes equipped with an Intelligent Backup Power system that can supply power to a home for up to three days when the battery is fully charged. If you ration how much power you use, you may be able to power the home for a week or more.
The Lighting also features an available ProPower Onboard system that comes with ten different 120-volt power outlets; two of the outlets are located in the cab, four are in the front trunk, and more are located in the bed of the truck. There is also a 240-volt/30-amp outlet in the bed as well. With this many outlets, you can plug in a tool, appliance, or other equipment that you may need. Your truck will be able to act as a portable generator.
The interior is spacious, luxurious, and practical. It offers plenty of legroom and headspace to ensure that all occupants are able to stretch out and feel comfortable on long road trips. The interior was also specifically designed with practicality in mind. The Lighting comes standard with an extra-large 15. 5-inch touchscreen infotainment display that comes with the available Sync 4 Technology suit which equips the display with a wide range of special apps and advanced features that are designed to keep you connected to the world, no matter where the road takes you.
There is also an available Interior Work Surface that allows you to stow the gear shifters away and fold out a table, which can transform the cabin into a portable office.
