The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has just debuted. The automaker has already announced at which price the model will be available at launch in North America.
Ford calls the model “the truck of the future”. This statement is true, as the F-150 Lightning got many innovative features.
The vehicle will be available in the base, XLT, Lariat and Platinum trim levels, with either standard-range or extended-range battery packs.
The smaller battery provides 426 hp/318 kW, while the larger one enables 563 hp/420 kW. The torque impresses – 775 lb.-ft./1051 Nm. A sprint from zero to 60 mph takes 4.4 seconds.
In addition to other multiple ‘goodies, the vehicle can serve as an energy source to power home for up to 3 days in the event of a blackout.
As for the pricing, we conclude from what is already known that the pickup truck will cost significantly more for Canadians than for U.S. buyers, at least, at the start of sales. In Canada, the price is currently set at 68,000 CAD (the equivalent of 56,164 USD as of today).
For comparison: the starting price in the USA is 39,974 USD for a commercially-oriented model, before tax credits, fees and charges. This version will come to Canada too, but later, and it will start at 58,000 CAD (47,904 USD).
The higher XTL trim costs 52,974 USD (64,138 CAD) in the United States. As Motor1 has found out, the Canadians will have the XTL version with more standard features than in the U.S.
The Canada-spec equipment for XTL will include Ford Co-Pilot 360 Assist 2.0, 9.6-kW Pro Power Onboard, rain-sensing wipers, a power tailgate, heated front seats, LED box lighting with zone lighting, 20-inch dark gray carbonized aluminum wheels.
We still don’t know how much the top variants will cost in both countries. Production of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning will begin in 2022. Customer deliveries are slated to start next spring.
