Just off the heels of the announcement that the Ford F-150 was getting a hybrid powertrain, Ford unleashed the Lightning – an all-electric version of the pickup that offers up everything that you love about the F-150, but that does it all without a drop of fuel. That includes a targeted payload as high as 2,000 pounds and a targeted towing capacity of 10,000 pounds. How’s that for Built Ford Tough?
With electrifying performance and a shocking design to boot, the 2022 Ford F-150 is in high demand, but here at Glenn Polk Auto, we’re here to help you get behind the wheel of one in the Gainesville area.
Take everything that you thought you knew about EVs and throw it out the window. The Ford F-150 Lighting challenges the status quo with numbers that are far beyond anything we’ve seen. That includes the most torque of any F-150 – ever. It comes courtesy of the two electric motors, which are powered by either a Standard or Extended Range battery option, the latter which pulls in the biggest numbers.
While the Standard Range battery is expected to deliver impressive capabilities to the tune of a 200-mile driving range and more, it’s the Extended Range battery that achieves the numbers listed in the highlights above. That includes the ability to pull 2,000 pounds in the bed and up to 10,000 pounds off the hitch. As its name promises, the Extended Range also adds 120 miles to the estimated driving range.
On top of that, the F-150 Lightning offers additional storage space. With no engine to fill the nose, the hood of the pickup serves as a trunk, with 14.1 cubic feet of space to securely haul whatever you need to. And to top it all off, the Lightning features Ford Intelligent Backup Power, offering the ability to power your house, or to serve as a generator for tools or other electronics. It’s yet another way that Ford is finding unique ways to enhance the practicality and versatility of their unique vehicles.
As the first-ever all-electric pickup with an impressive set of capabilities, it’s likely no surprise that the Ford F-150 Lightning sold out before it ever even hit the market. Due to high demand, orders are no longer being accepted by Ford, but we’re here to help you make your dreams of owning the Lighting a reality.
