This F-150 goes through the same rigorous testing as all F-Series trucks to ensure it delivers Built Ford Tough performance and reliability.

The F-150 Lightning features a military-grade aluminum-alloy body and an upgraded frame, which provides extra support for the truck's battery. The 2022 model also comes equipped with an F-Series independent rear suspension that delivers a stable ride in combination with the F-150's low centre of gravity. Whether hauling a bed full of cement bags or pulling equipment behind the truck, you’ll enjoy reliable performance to get your jobs done.

The 2022 F-150 Lightning is also constructed for excellent off-road performance with a 4x4 system and four selectable drive modes, including Normal, Sport, Off-Road and Tow/Haul. Rugged underbody protection keeps the battery safe, while metal skid plates shield the inboard motors from tough terrain. 

The 2022 F-150 Lightning’s advanced engineering promises to revolutionize the pickup segment. To reserve your model, contact Skaha Ford in BC for details.

With it, this all-electric truck promises to bring an advanced digital experience to BC commercial fleets wanting the latest in technology. From its immersive touchscreen display to its standard over-the-air software updates, this is the smartest F-150 yet.

Making its truck debut on F-150 Lightning Lariat and Platinum trims is Ford’s SYNC 4A – a sleek infotainment system with a 15.5-inch touchscreen that adapts to driver behaviour. Using natural voice commands, SYNC 4A features cloud-connected navigation and wireless access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa and SYNC AppLink apps. Further elevating the digital experience is a 12-inch instrument cluster that groups the truck’s key information into a customizable interface.

Furthermore, the 2022 F-150 Lightning includes other intelligent features, such as over-the-air software updates, remote vehicle access with FordPass and available BlueCruise for hands-free highway driving. Since payload capacity can also impact the truck’s range, this all-electric pickup offers available Onboard Scales, which use sensors to estimate how far the loaded vehicle can travel.

The 2022 F-150 Lightning, which is coming to Skaha Ford next spring, is an excellent solution. When this all-electric truck isn’t hauling tools and materials, it can be used as the ultimate power source to keep your home powered and your family safe.

With the available 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro and home management system, the 2022 F-150 Lightning can unload 9.6 kilowatts of power in the event of an outage. When equipped with the truck’s extended-range battery, that’s enough power to last three full days in continuous use or up to 10 days when rationed. When the outage is over, the truck automatically reverts to battery charging mode, so the Lighting is ready for your commute or available to power equipment at the job site.

In the future, Ford is planning to unveil Intelligent Power, which can use the F-150 Lightning to power homes during high-cost, peak-energy hours while taking advantage of low-cost overnight charging rates. This will not only help BC homeowners save on electricity costs, but it will alleviate pressure on the grid during high peak usage times.

With a quick glance, you’ll be able to assess how the truck’s systems are operating or choose between different drive modes to improve performance on varying terrain.
