2022 Ford F-150 Lighting Coming to Labelle, FL

You'll Be Amazed by the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning

The Ford F-150 Lightning shows us what's possible as we move into the future. It's Ford's first all-electric truck, and it changes the game in so many ways. LaBelle Ford is ready to introduce Ocala drivers to this powerful new addition to the Ford truck lineup.

Electric Powertrain

There's no need for gas to power up this pickup. It has a dual-motor configuration and all-wheel drive. Choose from different drive modes as you make your way through various terrain. What's amazing is that it has 775 pound-feet of torque. This is almost hard to believe, and it's great news for those of you who may have been wondering about the power that an electric truck can bring.

There are two options for the battery. The standard-range battery will give you 426 horsepower, and the extended-range battery will give you 563 horsepower. Either way, acceleration is impressive, and you'll certainly have a lot of fun behind the wheel. The truck can tow up to 10,000 pounds, and another benefit of using electric motors is that you won't ever need oil changes.

Charging and Range

The standard battery will give you a range of 230 miles with a full charge. This gives you a lot of freedom, but if you'd like to be able to drive even further before stopping for a charge, consider getting the extended-range battery. It will increase your range to an estimated 300 miles. When you do have to charge, you can do so at home or a public charging station.

The Lightning can be plugged into a 120-volt or 240-volt outlet. It's convenient to charge your truck overnight when you're at home, and when you're on the road, look for a DC fast charging station to quickly give you a big boost. The technology on the truck allows you to monitor your range so that it's easy to plan. This Ford F-150 can factor in the weather, traffic, and payload when figuring out how many more miles it has in it. Use the Power My Trip program to locate charging locations near where you're heading.

Special Features

You may already know that some vehicles have 120-volt outlets. These outlets can be so convenient when you're trying to get work done in the field. The Ford F-150 Lightning takes this idea even further. With the Pro Power Onboard system, the truck can act as a generator, providing you with 9.6kW of power. There are 11 total outlets, one of which is a 240-volt outlet in the bed for heavy-duty tasks. The others are 120-volt outlets that are placed around the trunk to give you easy access. This truck can even be used to give your home power in case of an outage. The available Ford Intelligent Backup Power system could give you enough energy to run some of your appliances and light your home for several days.

Since there's not an engine in this model, it can accommodate a front trunk. This is a cool feature that highlights how futuristic this vehicle is. The front trunk can hold up to 400 pounds of gear, and it has two USB ports, a compartment drain in case you're storing drinks inside, and 14 cubic feet of space.

Technology

There are two 12-inch touchscreens on this model. One is found behind the steering wheel; it's the digital gauge cluster that can provide you with useful information about vehicle diagnostics and more. The other is a touchscreen in the center stack. If you'd like, you can upgrade the screen to a 15.5-inch vertically oriented touchscreen that has a Sync 4A interface.
