Ford is the All-American Company that we all wish we could’ve invented. But we can do something even better, if not just as good. We can buy into the products that they sell. Lucky for us interested few, Ford has a pickup truck that is electric and a callback to one of it’s more famed models: the F-150.
The electric vehicles of today are essentially very specifically the advanced pickup trucks. The Ford F-150 Lightning has about ten times the initial annual volume Ford had originally on the F-150 Lightning. After the expansions to the main plant, Ford is going to be able to build 150,000 a year.
The F-150 Lightning convinces individuals to change from internal combustion engines to electric powertrains. And for good reason! Gas prices are shooting through the roof at unusual rates. So why wouldn’t you want to change lanes? Save money? And get the electric pickup you’ve always deserved? The Ford F-150 Lightning isn’t too far of a stretch from the original F-150.
Whereas the Lightning not only comes with the original four-door crew cab and the all-wheel drive with a motor at each axle. Typically and specifically with the electric vehicles, peak power gets limited by battery output, in which the standard 98.0 kilowatt-hours battery maxes out at 452 horsepower. Meanwhile, if you take a look at 131.0 kilowatt-hours upgrade pack ups to 580 horses. Each version makes a 775 pound-feet of torque.
2022 Brings Ford Into The Frontrunning Of Electric Pickup Trucks.
At the starting price, you won’t lose out on much with $41,769. Yet, fleet customers are only able to spec the larger battery pack on the base trim level, in which case the big battery truck leaps towards a larger price at about $74,269. The EPA believes in a range of about 230 miles for the lesser pack and about 320 in range of miles for an even larger version.
Platinum trim F-150 Lightning trucks drops to about 300 miles only because of the 22-inch wheels. In the 75-mile-per-hour highway range test, the Lightning Platinum goes on and on for about 230 miles. That’s not too bad, now is it?
And just look at the speed of the vehicle! The Ford F-150 Lightning can hit 60 miles per hour in only four seconds. The pickup then can hit about 180 feet before coming to a full-stop at 70 miles per hour. Furthermore, another nifty detail about the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is all the space to be found in the frunk.
