The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning has hit Bismarck!
You know and love our F-150s, but the Ford Lightning takes F-150s to a whole new level. Why? Because the Ford Lightning is the first all electric Ford truck.
The Ford Lightning is changing the game and bringing something new to all Ford and truck customers. Come along with us in this three-part series to learn more about the Ford Lightning, and all of its new and exciting features, starting with design and style.
The sleek and stylish design of the Ford Lightning was designed for you, with features you didn’t know you needed.
Let’s dive into one of the most exciting pieces of technology: the Ford Co-Pilot 360.
Ford Co-Pilot 360 Technology learns with you, and will have your back no matter what you’re doing or how you’re driving.
Each of the 12 features allows you to be in control the whole time, while guiding you and keeping you safe.
Now let’s flip the switch and dig deeper into the new lighting features available with the Ford Lightning.
The Ford Lighting comes equipped with Zone Lighting, which illuminates 360 degrees around your truck. By using your touchscreen in your vehicle or the FordPass app, you can control each zone individually.
There is also new LED box lighting, for when you are working or looking for something in the bed of your truck.
To navigate twists and turns, there are new LED Projector Dynamic Bending Headlamps, which help you to maintain visibility while cornering.
And the final new exterior lighting feature on the Ford Lighting is the enhanced lighting on the running boards! No need to worry about missing the step into the truck on a dark night, because the LED lighting on the running boards will guide you into your vehicle.
Moving to the interior, there is new Premium Ambient Interior Lighting, which is customizable to the driver through your SYNC system. Adjust the brightness of the lights by your feet, on your dash, by the phone charging compartment, and even in your cup holders!

And finally, one of the most exciting features of the Ford Lighting, the Frunk!

You can hold up to 400 lbs in the frunk, perfect for long trips or if you have a lot of equipment for work.
