You need a truck that can meet the demands of your tough job. Thankfully, the FordF-150 exists and it is more capable than ever.
Performance and Capabilities
The 2022 F-150 offers a six-engine lineup, including a hybrid, so you can find the exact amount of power you need. The standard engine is a 3.3-litre Ti-VCT V6 that generates 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. However, you have the option to switch that out for the available 3.5-litre EcoBoost® V6 that increases power to 400 horsepower, 500 lb-ft of torque, and a best-in-class maximum available tow rating of 14,000 pounds. All models except the top two Tremor® and Raptor® can be equipped with an efficient and potent 3.5-litre PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 that generates 430 horsepower, 570 lb-ft of torque, and 12,700 pounds of towing capability.
When you get to the F-150 Lariat model, you’ll find a 2.7-litre EcoBoost® V6 under the hood that delivers 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. The King Ranch™ model boasts the brawny 5.0-litre Ti-VCT V8 that offers up 400 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque, and a best-in-class maximum payload rating of 3,325 pounds. The 2022 F-150 Raptor® is where you’ll find the most bang for your buck. This truck comes with the High Output 3.5-litre EcoBoost® engine to create an astounding 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.
Exterior Design and Work Features
The exterior of the new Ford F-150 is instantly recognizable, with its bold stance and commanding presence. You can paint the truck in one of 10 appealing colours, depending on the model you choose, including unique options like Rapid Red and Atlas Blue. Across the F-150 lineup, you’ll find various design elements like chrome or black detailing as well as body-colour bumpers. You can also select one of the F-150 Black Appearance Packages that adds a sleek look to the truck. It all comes down to what you want your truck to look like when you’re heading to work.
But it’s not all about looks. The 2022 F-150 is equipped with useful exterior features to help you get the job done. Thanks to its high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body, the bed of the F-150 can stand up to just about anything. If you plan on using a lot of power tools while you’re working, the F-150 can double as a power source with available Pro Power Onboard™. This comes with three available outputs — 2.0kW, 2.4kW, and 7.2kW — and the outlets are located conveniently in the bed for easy access.
The cabin of the 2022 Ford F-150 is both comfortable and practical. The standard black vinyl floor covering ensures the interior stays clean when you’re trudging around the muddy work site. But if you want to add a touch of elegance in your truck, you can always opt for colour-coordinated carpet mats. The available dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control system makes the front-seat area ideal for you and your passenger. Meanwhile, other amenities like a heated steering wheel and heated front seats make chilly Trail winters a bit more bearable. If you plan on spending a lot of time working in your F-150, add the available Interior Work Surface that lets you stow the gear shifter to reveal a table from the centre console.
The Ford F-150 ensures that you can stay connected to the outside world, no matter where you’re headed. The standard SYNC® 4 infotainment system comes with FordPass™ Connect with a WiFi® Hotspot. But for even more helpful features, select the available SYNC® 4 with Enhanced Voice Recognition so you can use the system without taking your hands off the wheel. To see things as clearly as possible, upgrade to the available 12-inch centre stack screen, which is 4 inches larger than the standard screen. You can also equip your F-150 with connected built-in navigation so you always know where to go. And if you want the best music experience on the go, add the optional B&O® Sound System Unleashed by Bang & Olufsen® with HD Radio™ technology.
All 2022 Ford F-150 models come with a helpful rearview camera with dynamic hitch assist. But to take things a bit further, add even more available technologies like the 360-degree camera, Pro Trailer Backup Assist™, the Reverse Sensing System, and the Trailer Reverse Guidance system. For added confidence on the road, add the available Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology. This includes systems like BLIS® with Trailer Coverage, a Lane-Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, Evasive Steering Assist, and Active Park Assist 2.0.
