The Longest Range 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Has A $74K Price Tag

Sponsored

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning build and price configurator just launched earlier this week, giving the all-electric pickup truck’s prospective owners their first chance to toy around with various options and see how much different combinations will cost. However, those shoppers were also likely a bit surprised by the fact that the cheapest way to get Ford’s extended range battery – which is estimated to provide around 300 miles of range – is to spec that pack with the XLT trim – a $19,500 option that brings the F-150 Lightning’s MSRP up to a whopping $72,474, including a mandatory destination charge of $1,695.

The Lightning’s extended range battery is not available on the fleet-oriented Pro model, at least for retail orders, while the bigger battery is optional on XLT and Lariat trims and standard on Platinum-trimmed pickups. Thus, the cheapest way to get an F-150 Lightning with 300 miles of range is to pair the extended range battery with the XLT. One of the reasons this combination is so expensive is because Ford decided to pair the extended range battery with the XLT 312A equipment group, which adds quite a few pricey features and costs $9,500 as a standalone option.

The 312A equipment group includes 20-inch Dark Carbonized Gray wheels, body-color door and tailgate handles, LED box lighting with zone lighting, a power tailgate, 9.6 kW Pro Power Onboard, a tailgate step, Tailgate Work Surface, Intelligent Access, push-button start, 10-way heated power driver and multi-adjustable power front passenger seats, a heated steering wheel, Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist 2.0, and rain-sensing wipers.

As Ford Authority reported earlier this week, the first wave of order conversion invitations went out to 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning reservation holders today, though some customers are already being surprised by dealer markups. Due to heavier-than-expected demand that prompted Ford to nearly double its planned production, Ford also recently revealed that reservation holders who do not receive an invitation to order in the ensuing waves will be invited to order an F-150 Lightning for a future model year at a later date.

    It’s unfortunately. I wanted an XLT +ER. I had my reservation in very early on the day Ford introduced it. But at $74000, that’s just too much. I know Ford will sell every single truck they build, but I’ve cancelled my reservation.

    74000 dollars for a truck that takes an hour to get 20 miles of travel. The battery alone weights 1800 pounds. It’s the size of 2 mattresses. 300 miles is max? So what you’re telling me is that this “truck” will take all day to get max miles out of it. No thanks. I can fill up in less than 10 minutes and back on the road. My F150 get 425 miles on one tank. 10 minutes to fill up. Anyone that buys this thing has too much money and not enough economic sense. Oh by the way, do you have to take to your Ford dealer to fix anything? Get your wallet out because yes you do.

      What an uneducated comment. On L2, which is charging you do at home, it’ll take 8 hours on the 80A EVSE, overnight, while you sleep. DC fast charging (what you do on trips) will take about 40 minutes from 10-80% at 150kW. Please educate yourself before you stick your foot in your mouth again.

    The EV truck development now is where computers were 35-40 years ago. New technology always cost more. Radio Shack back in the early 80’s came out with the first practical home computer, the TRS-80. It was over $3000 and there were no programs other than a built in “basic” and you wrote the program to do what you wanted it to do, usually just documentation or mathematical equations. Are EV’s at this point? Customers are buying EVs not because they are cheap, but the technology and environmental concerns.

    I reserved both the F-150 and the tesla cyber truck. ford screwed up forcing the 10,000 option package on to the XLT. I’ll pass and wait till tesla is ready. Tesla top price was 69,000 but that will be going up too. The electric Silverado looks like a better option than ford at this point too. So I’ll keep the F-450 platinum which I paid only 66,000 for, for another year at least.

    Basic Pro version, no options, 200+ milage is best deal. I’m average 12.8 mpg @$3.00/ gallon, $75x 4 fills ups per month, $300 per month in fuel, 60-100 miles traveled max per day. Worst case $50-60 electricity. Do the math, $240 per month savings towards your $700/ month payment on a $40k truck, puts you at $460 month equivalent payment. $25,000 loan payment cost @3.11% for 60 months the $450/ month, don’t understand why people have so much of a hard time understanding math don’t even throw in the federal tax credit and you’re looking at buying a $40,000 truck for the equivalent price of a $25,000 truck once you factor in the fuel savings per month let me know what full size $25,000 truck you can get brand new today they don’t exist.

      It’ll cost you 1/4 to 1/5 the cost of gas to charge that truck (based on 10 cents a kWh)

      But yeah, I’m going to configure at least the XLT 311A trim. I MIGHT do the 312A trim with standard range battery for the push button start. It’s ridiculous that Ford decided the base trims of the Pro and XLT needed a key to turn the truck on.
