Are you ready to leave behind the smoggy air of fossil fuels and strike straight into the light of the future? Then, an electric vehicle is what you need. We hear you cry, “But I need a pickup with the explosive power of an internal combustion engine for towing!”
No, you don’t.
You need the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, Ford’s first fully electric pickup truck with a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds when properly equipped. When you’re ready to put this pickup to the test, come visit us at Friendly Ford of Hamilton, near Hamilton, Madison, and Morrisville, New York.
The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has two fully electric motors available that power a standard 4×4 drivetrain—that means power goes to each wheel individually as needed to help with uneven or slippery terrain.
You’ll also have four available drive modes, including one exclusive to towing and hauling. These modes are:
When it comes to the raw power of these dual motors, you’ll have 563 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque if equipped with the optional extended-range battery. When it comes to range, the standard range battery offers an EPA-estimated 230-mile range on a full charge, while the extended-range battery offers an EPA-estimated 300-mile range.
Whether you need to bring along everything from one worksite to another or out into the wilderness for the annual campout, the Ford F-150 Lightning has you covered. This powerhouse pickup offers a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds when properly equipped. This is enough for an over 25-foot-long camping trailer or a large boat.
Maybe you don’t want to hook up the trailer for this particular trip—just bring the essentials and rough it under the stars. In that case, you’ll have a maximum payload of 2,000 pounds available for all your camping gear (and maybe your air mattress—we won’t tell).
We know you can do everything yourself, but it’s nice to have a little help every once in a while—which is why the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning offers an entire suite of available towing technologies.
This suite includes:
When you start loading up, take the time to download the available FordPass™ app and use the Smart Hitch function. This app can measure the tongue weight of a trailer being connected to your F-150 Lightning. Once your trailer is set up, Smart Hitch will give you some advice on how to load your trailer for optimal weight distribution as well as offer some tips for safe towing.
Now that you know this electric pickup can work just as hard as its internal combustion cousins, come and visit us to test drive the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. The team at Friendly Ford of Hamilton is ready to get you behind the wheel of this electric marvel if you live in the Hamilton, Madison, or Morrisville, NY, area.
Don’t wait around—come and see us to ride the Lightning!
