LEAKED: The Ford F-150 Lightning Has an Updated Range
We have a saucy clue about the Ford F-150 Lightning to devour. Updated range figures for the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning might have been leaked through window stickers. So, let’s take a look at what could be on the table.
How much range does the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning have?
People will start getting their 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning models any day now. As a result, MotorTrend found a series of what could be legitimate window stickers for the F-150 Lightning emerge.
If the stickers are real, they report that the standard range battery setup will deliver 230 miles of range with the Lightning Pro trim. This is with the 98 kWh battery pack.
If you upgrade to the extended range battery setup with the 131 kWh battery, you could get up to 320 miles of range with the Pro and Lariat trims. The Platinum trim lists a 300-mile range.
The stickers also list a 240-Volt charge time of 11.9 hours for the standard-range Pro trim and 10.1 hours for the extended-range Pro and Lariat trims. The Platinum trim lists a 9.3 hour charging time.
These figures are close to what Ford projected them to be, but the Platinum trim has 20 more miles of range than initially estimated. The extended range Lariat and Pro trims get about 70 MPG, and the standard-range Pro gets 66 MPGe.
