The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is on its way to drivers across America — and it’s bringing even more horsepower, payload strength, and range than we thought.

Ford updated some key stats for the all-new, all-electric F-150 Lightning, revealing that both standard-range and extended-range battery models will get a boost in horsepower. With the standard-range battery, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning gets 452 horsepower. Extended-range trucks now get 580 horsepower. That’s up from respective pre-production estimates of 426 ponies and 563 ponies, respectively.

Another figure seeing an upgrade is the payload. Where Ford had originally estimated 2,000 pounds max payload capacity, that figure increases to 2,235 pounds as these trucks roll off the line.[1] On top of that, the F-150 Lightning still delivers a maximum of 10,000 pounds towing capacity.[2]

And for longer-distance travel, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has you covered with an even better range. The EPA rates the F-150 Lightning at a maximum 320 miles of range on a full charge, which is plenty enough to make the trip up the coast to Savannah, Georgia, in a straight shot.[3]

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is rolling out now, but demand is so high that it’s basically sold out for the time being. Want to be sure you’re one of the next to place an order?
