In a massive bet, Ford gambles the hallowed F150 truck legacy on new electric truck, the 2022 Ford F150 Lightning
Since 1977, generation after generation after generation of Americans have chosen the Ford F150 as their favorite truck. 44 years in a row, and counting, the F150 has been the top-selling truck in the country.
Families have learned to rely on their F150 because they’ve learned they can. Today, more F150s with 250,000 miles or more are still cruising the highways than for any other vehicle, make, or model.
Starting soon, that hard-earned reputation for popularity, dependability, and versatility is on the line as Gary Crossley Ford begins accepting official orders for the new 2022 Ford F150 Lightning.
The new electric F150 Lightning can travel up to 300 miles, power your worksite all day, or bring emergency backup power to your home for a full week and a half.
The new F150 Lightning is all-electric. All F150.
The world already has electric vehicles. What it needs, what Ford has made, is the first electric F150, a truck ready to meet the expectations that come with that name.
- The most powerful F150 ever
- 10,000-pound towing capacity
- Insane acceleration
- 300-mile range
- Largest electric vehicle charger network in the USA
Any questions about whether an electric truck is up to the job, get brushed aside when your head snaps back as the F150 Lightning goes from zero to 60 in just about 4 seconds thanks to dual motors and massive torque. It’s wicked quick.
But it can also haul 5 tons. Literally 5 tons!
Drive your new F150 Lightning to your worksite and it will power almost every power tool known to man. All. Day. Long. The F150 Lightning is ready to work as long as you are.
Fully equipped F150 Lightnings can travel up to 300 miles between charges, and with America’s largest public vehicle charger network you’ll never be out of range.
When you get home night, you plug into the house to charge your truck, but when the @#%$! hits the fan, your house plugs into your truck. The F150 can provide up to 10 days of backup power for your home in a hurricane, tornado, or another natural disaster.

Seems like America is ready for an electric vehicle that’s ready to work instead of just making a fashion statement. Especially one with prices starting under $40,000.
So far over 150,00 people have registered to purchase the new F150 Lightning and 3 out of 4 of them are switching to Ford from other brands.
What happens when America’s favorite truck explodes in popularity? Ford better get busy building them new electric trucks. Last month, Ford announced that it was doubling the production capacity for the new F150 due to the shocking demand.
“The interest from the public has surpassed our highest expectations,” said Bill Ford, Executive Chairman of Ford Motor Company.
The official order portal for the F150 Lightning is slated to open later this month, maybe later this year, depending on who you talk to.
