    Commercial All-Electric F-150 Lightning Pro, Next Generation Technology Built for Today's Work Order Book Opens

      The all-new 2022 F-150 Lightning Pro commercial all-electric truck built for commercial customers was released today. Joining the E-Transit in the growing family of Ford Work-ready electric vehicles, backed by a Ford nationwide network making the transition to zero emissions easy.

    Ford has opened the books on the F-150 Lightning Pro commercial series of pickup trucks.


    Starting with an MSRP of $39,974 with standard range battery and dual motor power 4x4 targeting 426 horsepower/775 lb-ft of torque and a targeted EPC-estimated range of 230 miles. The F-150 Lightning Pro commercial extended-range version is also available with targeted 563 horsepower/775 lb-ft of torque, targeted EPA-estimated range of 300 miles starting at an MSRP of $49,974.


    Charging, connectivity for fleet integration has available 48 and 80 amp chargers, enabling overnight Level 2AC charging solutions for home as well as full support for public and depot fast charging. These commercial trucks will also fully support vehicle telematics via the dashboard and OEM-grade electric vehicle data support fleet management software.  Fords fleet planning tools target a 40% reduction in scheduled maintenance over 8 years and 100,000 miles of service use.


    Fords First-ever Mega Power Frunk offers 14.1 cubic feet of lockable, water-tight storage with capacity to carry up to 400 pounds. Comes standard with four 120V AC outlets and two USB ports. Two more outlets are in the cab and two in the 5 1/2 foot rear cargo bed, which is ready for easy upfitting with its familiar F-150 dimensions and mounting points.


    Trucks will have a standard 2,000 lb maximum payload capacity with a 5,000 pound towing capability. Ordered with the optional Max Trailer Tow package and you up this to 7,700 pounds if on the standard battery pack. Extended battery pack takes the Max trailer Tow package allowing for 10,000 pounds of trailering.



    Ford is proud of their military-grade aluminum alloy body and upgraded high-strength steel frame supporting the advanced battery pack. F-series independent rear suspension and low center of gravity help to improve isolation from the road, providing a stable ride with reduced steering roll, maintaining the durability and reliability customers expect of an F-150 pickup. Advanced cooling / heating system helps ensure the truck can thrive in the toughest of ordeals and weather.

    Pro Power Onboard is a built-in AC power source that comes standard with a 2.4 kW capability through four outlets in the Frunk, two in the cab and two in the bed. With the extended range battery you have the available option of a 9.6 kW Pro Power Onboard. This adds two more 120V outlets and a 240V AC outlet to the bed. This provides enough power to rip up 30 miles of half inch plywood on a single charge.


    Pro Power Onboard automatically via the trucks software system adjusts the battery range of the truck based on power used from the Pro Power Onboard system. Software can have set parameters to ensure the truck can get to the closest available charging station to avoid stranding of people. If no parameters are set and Pro Power Onboard depletes the battery charge level to the point a truck cannot reach a charge location, it will shut down automatically to prevent the truck from becoming stranded.

    The F-150 Lighting Pro is offered in a 4-door 5 passenger SuperCrew configuration. Features easy to clean vinyl seats along with the standard SYNC 4 with 12" LCD touch screen and a 12" productivity screen with Ford Co-Pilot360 2.0.



    Onboard scales are available to monitor payload and accurately calculate range. Ford has the following estimates on charging at this time:


    Ford F-150 Lightning will come standard with 4G LTE for seamless connectivity services to help fleets optimize efficiency and lower operating costs while also allowing constant over the air encrypted updates.

    F-150 Lightning Pro will be proudly built by UAW-represented hourly employees at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, Michigan with deliveries starting spring 2022.

    Very cool, while a reduced color set for the Fleet version of the F-150 Lightning Pro edition, you can still also get the cool Antimatter Blue color.

    Loving this and the over all monochromatic look.

    One interesting detail I noticed was the Lightnings have old school mast antennas---I read an article on Jalopnik that is because mast antennas are better at picking up AM signals, and the rural demo that buys a lot of trucks are down wit the AM radio.  

    Not something I would have thought of--haven't listened to AM radio in maybe 30 years or more, seems an artifact of the distant past.

    WOW, agree, been decades since I have listened to anything on AM. A dinosaur that still surprises me it is around.

    Found that story you mention Robert: Here's Why A Modern Truck Like the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Still Has Such An Old-School Antenna (jalopnik.com)

    In looking at the GM fleet site, I see they still have the old whip Antenna but RAM has totally dropped it, it seems to me. I would think that they could easily find a way to have the FIN antenna on the top be a bit stronger at grabbing the RURAL AM signal which is what this is all about.

    Mazda unveils the Iconic SP concept

    At the 2023 Tokyo auto show, Mazda unveiled a sports car concept. Originally named Vision Study Model, the Iconic SP, utilizes an interesting engine combination. This hybrid-rotary-powered sports car uses the twin-rotor rotary engine as a generator to recharge the batteries. Iconic SP is around 10 inches longer than Mazda’s compact Miata. Although Mazda hasn't disclosed the number of electric motors, they are the main propulsion system. As a range-extending EV, that rotary engine doesn’t dr
