Ford F-150 Refresh Not Expected Until 2025, But 2022 Has Big Debuts

While it shares many similarities with its predecessor, the 2021 Ford F-150 is considered an all-new product. But while we generally expect a Ford F-150 refresh every few years, it appears that we’ll be waiting a bit longer than usual for the 14th gen model to receive such updates – 2025, in fact, which is when the next Ford F-150 refresh is scheduled, according to a report from Automotive News.

While we’ll be waiting a while for that mid-cycle refresh to come about, there are quite a few things happening to the F-150 in the 2022 model year. That includes, of course, the launch of the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning. With over 120,000 reservations placed for the new pickup thus far, Ford recently decided to double its planned production of the Lightning at the new Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.

It’s unclear how many of those reservations will ultimately be converted to orders, but it will still likely take some time to fill them before we start seeing F-150 Lightning pickups on dealer lots. When that does happen, those seeking an all-electric F-150 at a discount will have to physically visit dealerships to find them, as Ford doesn’t want dealers advertising the trucks at prices below MSRP, though they can be sold at these discounted prices.

The other big debut for 2022 is the Ford F-150 Raptor R, which will be powered by Ford’s supercharged 5.2L Predator V8, as Ford Authority was the first to report back in June of 2019. It will produce around 750 horsepower in the off-road-focused pickup, which is more than enough to trump the 702 horsepower currently available from the Ram TRX’s supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8.

As Ford Authority reported earlier this year, the Raptor R will feature some unique styling touches to differentiate it from the regular Raptor, including a revised front grille, unique gloss black wheels with beadlock capability, and a more robust rear suspension fortified by structural enhancements including beefier trailing arms.

We’ll have much more on the F-150 soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford F-Series news, Ford F-150 news, and continuous Ford news coverage.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    How do I find out about Maverick deliveries? Dealership is tight lipped.

  2. Josh

    Any word on when (anticipated today) we will be able to order 2022 F150’s?

  3. Jan Noltensmeyer

    Any update on the chips for the f150 trucks. Will there be any incentives on the stored f150 that is waiting chips. Seems to be limited colors on trucks. Not everyone likes white, black or gray. Thanks

  4. Gary B kempf

    Yes, I’d like to something other then black or gray interior. Ford seems to make their customers go to more expensive upgrades in order to get something different. I may start looking at a different brand.

    Hell you can’t even find a 2021 F-150 Platinum hardly, all I’ve seen are a boatload of nothing XLT’s and bare Lariat’s, and I hope for Christ’s sake you add some better colors for 2022, and no I won’t be a traitor and go to another brand!!!

  6. Dr. Carmaker1

    This is not accurate information, it’s due for 2024 MY. I have this insight directly and Automotive News is reporting questionable information.

    We have designed the P702 MCA at this point, it is on schedule.

  7. Fred

    When will the 2022 f150 trucks start shipping to the dealers or people that ordered one?

  8. Weiss, Tom

    I have a 2018 Lariat and we love it. I am on the list for when the Lightning (EV) and am wondering if Ford will have a HUD system for it. I am a fan of this tech for my night driving duties. Thank you.
