2022 Ford F-150 Lightning: Visual Comparison By Model And Trim

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning was revealed nearly one year ago along with the work-oriented Pro variant. Regardless, there are quite a few differences in terms of specifications between each trim level, while the final EPA estimated range figures, power numbers, and max payload ratings have all changed from Ford’s initial estimates. There are four trim levels available, so we’re breaking them down with this 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning visual comparison guide.

Trims

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is offered in four trim levels. From base to range-topping, the four trims are:

  • Pro
  • XLT
  • Lariat
  • Platinum

Front

The F-150 Lighting offers four different front fascia configurations differentiated by the front grille, signature front lighting, and front bumper.

Production of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning officially began at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center last month, though the first model year for the EV pickup is already completely sold out. However, Ford has already nearly doubled its planned production capacity for the new model to 150,000 units by mid-2023 as it works to fill all of the 200,000 reservations it received for the F-150 Lighting before the automaker stopped taking them.

      Morning Shahid, I put a reservation in as soon as it was available to do so. I waited and waited and waited, when the Order Banks Opened up to allow orders to be Placed and confirmed, I was NEVER Notified. I called my Dealer and they knew NOTHING???? I could Not place an order, I again waited to get some kind of go ahead from FORD or Somebody and it Never happened, the Order banks were shut down and I was never able place an order. So, I cancelled my reservation, got my $100 refunded, and Ordered an ICE F-150 Instead. To be Honest with ya, That isn’t working out yet either Due to all the CHIP Issues going on, and it’s been 3 MONTHS and I haven’t heard a Word from anyone. I assume I’ll be waiting Quite some time before I see or hear of anything happening.
