The world’s most popular pickup truck is doing great on the market, but the Blue Oval company wants to keep the pace with all the novelties that are coming in the automotive industry these days. Therefore, the upcoming redesign will be more interesting than you would think after looking at rendering photos. The styling changes might be evolutionary, but a big revolution is happening under the hood, where the new generation will come with completely new powertrain options. One of the new models to come is 2022 Ford F-150 Electric. It will hit the market year after the launch of the next generation of this legendary SUV.
This version will be interesting in many ways but, as you may presume, the most intriguing part of it is definitely the drivetrain. This aspect is still kept as a secret in the company. Still, we can make some predictions by looking at some other models on the market.
2022 Ford F-150 Electric Specs
As we’ve just mentioned, the most interesting aspect of the upcoming model will definitely be the new all-electric drivetrain. At this point, the company still hides all the details as secret, but we may presume that the setup will be pretty similar to the Rivian R1T electric pickup truck, which will hit the market soon. The Rivian is a small, start-up company, while Ford is a big shareholder. Therefore, it seems logical to see the same or similar configurations in the offer.
That could easily mean that the 2022 Ford F-150 Electric will come with three battery versions, where the most capable setup would feature a large 180-kWh pack. Such capacity would provide more than 400 miles on a single charge, according to some estimations. When it comes to power, the R1T features a quad-motor setup, with a total output of more than 750 horsepower. Such amount of power would be enough to provide pretty respectable ratings in terms of towing capacity, probably around 11.000 pounds. That is pretty close to conventional internal-combustion full-size pickup trucks.
2022 Ford F-150 Electric Redesign
When it comes to base design characteristics, things are a little bit unclear. Of course, it’s obvious that the new electric pickup truck will carry the famous nameplate, which will definitely boost some sales. On the other side, we still don’t know will the new 2022 Ford F-150 Electric really be based on the standard model, or we are about to see a completely new platform, despite that the rendering photos clearly show a styling similar to gasoline-powered models.
If the company is about to offer a completely new layout, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see a little bit different dimensions, probably a little bit smaller, as the R1T stands somewhere between mid-size and full-size pickup trucks.
Styling and Interior
When it comes to the styling, there is no doubt that the 2022 Ford F-150 Electric will stick pretty close to standard models. This means we may count on evolutionary changes only. Some rendering photos have already appeared and they clearly show a familiar look, with changes only at the front end. There, we can see things like new headlights, closed grille and similar things.
When it comes to the interior details, it is still early to talk about details. Still, we presume that the overall layout won’t be much different compared to the standard model. Still, the dash would come with a number of details that clearly accentuate the model’s all-electric character. Also, we are pretty sure that this version won’t be available with a single row of seats, but in some kind of crew cab layout only.
2022 Ford F-150 Electric Release Date and Price
We expect to see 2022 Ford F-150 Electric sometime in the next year. When it comes to the price, it is hard to talk about details at the moment. The R1T will feature a starting price of around 70.000 dollars. However, have no doubt that the Blue Oval company will tend to make this model cheaper and more competitive. So, the starting price will definitely be notably lower.
