F-150 Lightning Review

Ford motor company has long been hailed as one of the premier auto manufacturers in the world. The reasons are simple: durability and quality. Few automakers can compare to the robust and reliable design of a Ford vehicle. For over 100 years, Ford has continued to produce automobiles that are a testament to the quality and strength the company is known for. 

And in 2022, that reputation is further solidified with the advent of the 2022 F-150 Lightning XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trims.

Rival trucks may have similar innovative attributes when it comes to electric engines. However, they will not be able to hold a candle to the enduring strength that has become synonymous with the F-150 moniker. 

Let’s take a closer look at the models…

The XLT Trim

The XLT model is a robust and dynamic pickup that offers everything you need in regard to form and function. And with 426 horsepower in addition to being able to comfortably house up to 5 passengers; the XLT is both powerful and palatial. 

This hefty model sports a cargo bed of 66 inches in length, 65.2 inches in width, 21.4 inches in height, and 64.8 cubic feet of space altogether. Additionally, the front and rear wheels both consist of aluminum; making the vehicle a formidable force on the road. 


The XLT model also has a plethora of entertainment features for you and the whole family. Listen to your Sirius XM Radio with ease and enjoyment as you comfortably cruise to your destination. 

Purchase a subscription to enjoy the wonders of your favourite music, educate yourself via talk radio, or stay informed through the various news networks that are available. The 2022 model also comes standard with SYNC 4 technology and a 12” touchscreen.


Safety has always been a high priority for Ford; and with the myriad of advanced, up-to-the-minute protection options available, that trend continues to this day. The XLT is equipped with such safety features as a 360-degree camera, Lane Keeping Alert, Lane Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning and more. 

And with both a left and right side camera, you will always be aware of your surroundings, and therefore, won’t be caught off guard by unexpected events. 

The final price for the XLT is an estimated $68,260. 

The Lariat

A powerhouse with all-wheel drive capabilities, the Lariat F-150 is a rugged and robust behemoth. And with its Double Wishbone front suspension, each wheel becomes a separate, independent element on the truck, allowing for a smoother and more seamless ride every time. 


The Lariat possesses a powerful B&O sound system along with a set of burly subwoofers that will turn your truck into a live concert. Or if you prefer a more refined or quiet driving experience, tune in to any radio station to hear the clean and polished audio provided by the speakers. SYNC 4A technology and a 15” centre-stack screen also come standard in the 2022 Lariat.


Feel at ease knowing your children are secure with our Rear Child Safety Locks. Moreover, the Airbag Occupancy Sensor in tandem with the Dual Stage Driver And Passenger Front Airbags are standard safety features that will protect you and your passengers in the event of an accident or crash. 

The price tag for the Lariat is in the range of $92,600.

Platinum Extended Range

The Platinum trim is by far the most opulent and luxurious. And with its myriad of extensive features, spacious design, and polished yet powerful appearance, it’s not hard to see why. 

Take a ride in the EV pickup of your dreams: smooth, seamless, but still strong and decisive. The F-150 Platinum is a pickup lovers’ dream come true. Let’s explore this opulent model in a little more detail. 


A 15-inch touchscreen blends hardware and software seamlessly to deliver a sense of connectedness to the people (and apps) you love most while you’re on the road. Additionally, a standard voice recognition system is also incorporated. 

Other impressive features include connectivity to the cloud, clear-cut navigation, and seamless app access.   


The Platinum is armed with the necessary attributes and systems to ensure your driving experience is both positive and safe. This is accomplished through various features such as Tire Specific Low Tire Pressure Warning, Evasion Assist, Ford Co-Pilot360 – Active Park Assist 2.0 Automated Parking Sensors, and more. 

The security that comes from knowing your pickup is equipped to handle the dangers of the road is priceless. And that sense of security is exactly what the F-150 Platinum delivers. 

Furthermore, the Platinum model comes with an estimated price tag of about $115,600, respectively.

As the world hurtles toward more environmentally-friendly methods of transportation, the F-150 Lightning is a revolutionary model that is meeting that need. Moreover, it’s a pickup that confidently rises with the change of the times and as a result, is a staple of the EV movement.
