In recent weeks, Ford Authority spies have spotted a number of 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning prototypes driving around wearing different exterior colors – first, a red Lariat, then, an Iconic Silver Platinum, an XLT with the Premium Package finished in Oxford White, and an Atlas Blue XLT sans the Premium Package. Now, Ford Authority spies have captured a 2022 Ford F-150 Lighting Lariat finished in Stone Gray, which gives us yet another real-world look at a color that will be available when the all-electric Ford F-150 launches next spring.
The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat is one of four available trims for the electrified pickup and starts out at $67,474 before the current $7,500 tax credit or $59,474 with the credit.
The Lariat slots above the commercial-focused Pro and the XLT in the F-150 Lightning lineup and comes equipped with a Premium Geometric Gray-Ion satin grille, 20-inch Dark Carbonized Gray wheels, leather-trimmed heated and ventilated seating, a power tailgate, Sync 4A with a 15.5-inch touchscreen, and standard Pro Power Onboard with 9.6 kW of power. Options include a twin-panel moonroof and Ford Co-Pilot360 Active 2.0.
The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat comes equipped with FoMoCo’s standard range battery as standard equipment and produces 426 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque with up to 230 miles of EPA-estimated range, 2,000 pounds of maximum payload capacity, and 7,700 pounds of max towing capacity. The extended range battery is available as an option on Lariat-trimmed trucks, which bumps output up to 563 horsepower and 775 pound-feet of torque with up to 300 miles of estimated range, 1,800 pounds of maximum payload capacity, and 10,000 pounds of max towing capacity.
As Ford Authority previously reported, Ford recently stopped taking reservations for the F-150 Lighting after racking up approximately 200,000 of them. Order banks for the all-electric pickup are scheduled to open next month, with orders being taken in “waves,” or via a staggered process. After demand exceeded Ford’s expectations, the automaker recently announced that it will ramp up its planned production of the F-150 Lightning sooner than expected.
