Picture of the Week – Ford reaches peak with new Pick-ups launched in USA


Extending the ‘Built Ford Tough’ theme, Ford Motor Company in North America has launched the all-new 2022 F-150 Lightning Pro – the first-ever all-electric F-Series truck purpose-built for commercial vehicle customers; it joins E-Transit in the growing line-up of Ford work-ready electric vehicles, making the transition to zero emissions easy.

F-150 Lightning Pro offers value and performance with standard range battery and dual motor power 4×4 targeting 426 horsepower and a targeted EPA-estimated 230 miles of range; available extended-range version targeting 563 horsepower and a targeted EPA-estimated range of 300 miles.

Unique to the new F-150 is the first-ever Ford Mega Power Frunk (a front end trunk aka under the bonnet), offering 14.1 cubic feet of lockable, water-tight storage and the capacity to carry up to 400 pounds; it comes standard with four 120-volt AC outlets and two USB ports, with two more outlets in the cab and two in the 5.5-foot rear cargo bed, which is ready for easy upfitting with its familiar F-150 dimensions and mounting points.

In addition, Ford also introduced the 2022 Ford Maverick Hybrid XLT, its more compact Pick-up with a 2.0 litre EcoBoost AWD drivetrain. It will be on the market later in 2021.
