Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Preview

CarsDirect Staff
December 22, 2021

Model Preview

The Ford F-150 Lightning will be the brand's first electric pickup truck. Although it may sound as if it will be based on the Ford F-150, the vehicle's underlying EV technology and capabilities will be considerably different. The F-150 Lightning will help usher in the company's next generation of electric vehicles here in the United States. The model will be offered in two different versions, a Lightning Pro work truck and the standard Lightning marketed to the public.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will feature a surprisingly toned-down design that looks similar to the current F-150. What will set it apart will be its smoother grille, slightly restyled headlights, and massive light bar that runs up each headlight and across the top of the grille. Inside, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning’s design follows the same pattern, as its design follows the base F-150 closely – at least until you get to the center of the dash.

Setting this pickup apart is the SYNC 4A infotainment system in the Lariat and Platinum trims, which features a monstrous 15.5-inch touchscreen. This new-to-the-F-150 infotainment system includes natural voice control, cloud-connected navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and integrated Amazon Alexa and SYNC AppLink apps. Also available is a 12-inch digital gauge cluster. As for storage, the elimination of the gasoline engine gives the new Lightning a 14-cubic-foot front trunk for hauling luggage and more. According to Ford, this is enough room for one checked bag and two carry-on bags.

The F-150 Lightning Pro will be primarily aimed at commercial buyers, although regular consumers will be able to order it as well. The biggest downside is that the general public won't be able to order a Lightning Pro with an Extended Range battery. Coupled with the fact that the Lightning Pro is expected to account for only a fraction of overall sales for the model, this will effectively mean that the cheapest F-150 Lightning will be hard to find.


Ford F-150 Lightning

Ford has yet to release the full details on the 2022 F-150 Lightning’s powertrain, but it’s targeting 563 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque, which would give it a 0-60 mph time in the mid-4-second range. Four-wheel drive will be standard. As for hauling, Ford’s aiming for a 2,000-pound payload capacity in the base F-150 Lightning and a 10,000-pound towing capacity in the XLT and Lariat models with the extended-range battery and towing packages.

According to Green Car Reports, F-150 Lightning battery specs will consist of a 98 kWh unit in the Standard Range model, with a 131 kWh battery in Extended Range configurations. The Lightning’s standard lithium-ion battery targets a 230-mile range, while its extended-range battery aims for 300 miles. With its 80-amp charging system, the Lightning will charge at a rate of 30 miles per hour of charging, which will get it from 15% battery to 100% in about eight hours at home. On a 150-kW DC fast charger, it reaches 54 miles in just 10 minutes of charging and can go from 15% battery to 80% in just 41 minutes.

The 2022 F-150 Lightning also acts as a massive power bank, giving you a 2.4-kW plug inside the front trunk. Buyers can upgrade to more, including in-bed and in-cab outlets with 7.2 kW of power, bringing the total power output to 9.6 kW. Ford estimates the F-150 Lightning can power a home for up to 10 days with proper rationing.

The 2022 Lightning will feature available Ford Co-Pilot 360, which will include automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and more. But the highlight is the new BlueCruise, which offers hands-free driving on over 100,000 miles of highways in the U.S. and Canada.

Pricing & Release Date

Ford says 2022 F-150 Lightning production will begin in the spring of 2022. The company recently ended the truck's early reservation system. Due to production hurdles related to a semiconductor shortage, there have been rumors suggesting some F-150 Lightning orders may be converted to a 2023-model-year vehicle.

Early reservations have been extremely successful, with Ford reportedly flipping Tesla owners. Late last summer, Ford doubled F-150 Lightning production in response.

F-150 Lightning pricing is still in the works, but Ford announced the base, work-focused F-150 Lightning Pro will start from a surprisingly affordable $39,974. The better-equipped XLT model – the typical starting trim for retail shoppers – will start from $52,974. Ford wasn’t clear whether these prices include destination fees or not.

Interestingly, Ford will prohibit dealers from advertising F-150 Lightning prices under MSRP. This stems from the fact that the F-150 Lightning's invoice pricing calculation is unlike most of the brand's vehicles. Fortunately, the truck is expected to qualify for a variety of plug-in rebates and EV incentives, such as a federal tax credit.

Like the Mustang Mach-E, Ford Credit will offer a lease-like program for the F-150 Lightning called Ford Options Plan. Fortunately, the truck will qualify for discounted Ford Plan Pricing, although a closer look finds the F-150 Lightning is excluded from X-Plan. The underlying Plan Pricing calculation is unlike other Ford models.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will likely compete with the Tesla Cybertruck, GMC Hummer EV, and Rivian R1T.
