2022 Ford F-150 Review: Specs and Pricing


2022 Ford F-150

OVERVIEW


The 2022 Ford F-150 is a workhorse that can be customized with various trims and body types to meet a variety of tasks. While oil tycoons and affluent ranch owners would feel right at home in the King Ranch or Limited versions, contractors and fleet managers will like the base XL's inexpensive price and utilitarian design.

Various engines are also available, including a hybrid and a diesel. The off-road capable Tremor model guarantees to get you almost everywhere you need to go. The F-150 has the tenacity to finish the job.


Ford's reputation and greater range of available options have historically convinced many purchasers to choose it over its main competition, the Ram 1500, even though it isn't quite as pleasant to live with daily. We're glad to include the F-150 on our list of Editors' Choice vehicles since we're confident that very few of them have regretted their purchase.


What has changed for 2022?


For 2022, the F-150 now offers a new Black Appearance package, available on the XL, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trim levels. The Bed Utility package is now a standard feature on the luxurious King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims and an option on the XL, XLT, Lariat, and Tremor trims.

It has lockable cleat-style tie-downs and a tailgate step. Additionally, this year's color scheme includes Atlas Blue. For the 2022 model, the all-electric F-150 Lightning will also go on sale, but we examine that model separately.


Which one to Purchase?


There are various body types and bed lengths for the F-150. While the XLT model is an improvement over the entry-level XL work truck, we think the Lariat offers more conveniences. It provides the best balance of features and price, but it costs about $10,000 more than the XLT, which may make it out of reach for certain consumers.



2022 Ford F-150: Interior and Comfort


Particularly in Ford's more expensive King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited models, interior features in the F-150 come close to matching the luxurious interior of the Ram 1500. The cabin is furnished with high-quality materials and has many storage compartments. For people who utilize the F-150 as a mobile workstation, additional convenience features are designed to make life simpler. For instance, the center console and shift lever of the 10-speed automatic may be folded flat to make a sizable flat surface. Similar fold-flat front seats for the F-150 are also an option that may be chosen.


The four-door crew cab body design is the largest and most accommodating for families, offering substantial passenger capacity. In the bed of the F-150's back end Up to 7.2 kW of power is available from an optional onboard generator to satisfy electrical demands at the tailgate gatherings or on the construction site.


2022 Ford F-150: Pricing


The price of the 2022 Ford F-150 starts at $33,315 and goes up to $79,055 depending on the trim and options.


2022 Ford F-150: Connectivity


A considerably larger 12.0-inch infotainment display is available in addition to the 8.0-inch device that comes standard and runs an enhanced version of Ford's Sync 4 software. This is comparable to the Ram 1500's optional 12.0-inch vertically oriented display, although the larger 13.4-inch screens for the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra are also an option.


A Wi-Fi hotspot, GPS, Sirius XM radio, and a Bang & Olufsen music system are all options; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standards. The updated software for Sync 4 includes onboard telematics for fleet customers to assist track vehicle position and usage, over-the-air upgrades for upcoming software releases, traffic and weather updates via the optional navigation system, and more.


2022 Ford F-150: Engine and Performance


The 2022 F-150 is offered with a variety of motors, including a 400-hp 5.0-liter V-8, a 400-hp twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6, a 400-hp 2.7-liter V-6, and a 250-hp 3.0-liter diesel engine. Any engine you select for the F-150 will be mated with a 10-speed automatic transmission.


For the first vehicle ever, a hybrid powertrain is also available for the F-150. Ford claims that the new 400-hp hybrid drivetrain, which is made up of a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6, a 35 kW electric motor, and a 10-speed automatic transmission, will provide up to 700 miles of range per tank of gas and be able to run an onboard generator to keep the lights on at construction sites or during power outages.

With any of the F-150's available powertrains, buyers will be able to select between rear- and four-wheel drive. A four-wheel drive Lariat with a hybrid powertrain raced to 60 mph on our test course in a snappy 5.4 seconds. We saw a smooth ride and acceptable handling throughout our test drive; high-end models like the King Ranch have variable-assist steering technology that sharpens reflexes at low speeds for a more nimble feeling.


The Tremor variant, which boasts 33-inch all-terrain tires, an improved suspension, a locking rear differential, and a four-wheel drive transfer case used from the powerful F-150 Raptor, promises the most off-road capability. The Tremor reached 60 mph at our test track in 5.3 seconds, edging out the more potent Raptor by just 0.1 seconds.


2022 Ford F-150: Capacity for Towing and Payload


Models with the 400-hp twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 engine can tow up to 14,000 pounds, but the regular 3.3-liter V-6 engine's towing limit is 8200 pounds. The venerable 5.0-liter V-8 has a maximum towing capacity of only 13,000 pounds, compared to 12,100 pounds for the diesel V-6 and 12,700 pounds for the hybrid variant. The weight of the payload varies from 1840 to 3250 pounds. The 2018 F-150 remains competitive with important rivals like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, and Ram 1500 thanks to its towing and payload capacities.
