When the best-selling pickup manufacturer sets out to dominate yet another truck category, you know it’s going to be good. And the F-150 is welcoming a new family member with the introduction of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. This all-electric pickup is already showing off its impressive roster of extras, capabilities, and revolutionary tech.

But with all of those options, cab configuration isn’t one of them. The new Ford F-150 Lightning is available only in one cab style. And considering everything else this ultra-cool truck offers, you probably won’t mind.

What cab style does the 1 Ford F-150 Lightning have?

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning certainly won’t replace the traditional F-150. Instead, this introduction launches the automaker’s electric contribution. MotorTrend reports that the Lightning will offer four trims from which to choose: the base model, the popular XLT, the Lariat, and the Platinum.

And though you’ll have a host of other options and available equipment to consider, one decision has been made for you. The Ford F-150 Lightning will be available only in a four-door SuperCrew cab configuration with a 5.5-foot truck bed, The Verge notes. 

Other F-150 configurations

Anyone familiar with the Ford F-150 lineup knows it offers varying cab styles and bed lengths from which to choose. This wildly popular truck’s gas-powered versions usually offer a regular cab, the SuperCab, and the SuperCrew. The traditional F-150 also offers 5.5-foot, 6.5-foot, and 8.0-foot bed lengths.

You also get a choice among six trims: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. So, while the Ford F-150 Lightning follows suit in some of these offerings, it offers fewer trims and determines cab style and bed length for you.

The Ford F-150 Lightning’s unique design elements

Ford didn’t set out to design something crazy-looking, like a boxy Cybertruck. Instead, the Ford F-150 Lightning offers a unique look that’s slightly Mustang Mach-E and very much a recognizable F-150. And the sleek body style isn’t the only innovative design element.

Ford suggests its new electric pickup will harness 563 horses and jump from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 4.4 seconds. That’s even faster than the last Raptor model MotorTrend clocked at 5.2 seconds. And there’s even more impressiveness inside the Ford F-150 Lightning.

Over-the-air updates are a reality with the F-150 Lightning, including updated information on charging, better mapping, and enhancements to BlueCruise. Expect a 15.5-inch touchscreen with user-friendly access to all the apps and tech, too.

What we know today that we didn’t know before


The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning’s Biggest Surprise Comes Inside the Cabin

Most automotive critics have offered estimates and predictions over the past few months about what consumers can expect from the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. What we know now is that this pickup will be affordable, with a $41,669 starting MSRP.

It will comfortably seat five and come ready to work with a max payload of 2,000 pounds. It will also tow up to 10,000 pounds and deliver a driving range of about 300 miles on the extended battery. However, the standard battery will offer 230 miles on a single charge. Also, expect a full spare tire, standard all-wheel drive, and off-road skid plates.

Ford is clearly taking the EV trend seriously with the Ford F-150 Lightning’s launch. You, like most critics, will likely be impressed with the sleek styling, robust capability, and hefty roster of options. And even though you can’t choose a cab configuration, you probably won’t mind considering everything else this pickup offers.
