2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Lineup | Inverness, FL

The future is now — production of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is underway. In April, the first examples of the all-electric pickup truck rolled off the assembly line at the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center. And, thanks to huge investments from Ford, there’s plenty more where that came from.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a testament to the Blue Oval approach to innovation. With incredible power, capability, and range, the F-150 Lightning gives you the confidence you expect from a Built Ford Tough® truck. It also serves up incredible technology, including Ford Intelligent Backup Power and BlueCruise hands-free driving.

Because the F-150 Lightning is a first for Ford, it’s been a massive hit. So massive, in fact, that Ford has invested $950 million to ramp up annual F-150 Lightning production to 150,000 trucks by 2023. In the process, Ford has created 750 new jobs at Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Dearborn, adding to its standing as America’s top employer of hourly autoworkers.[1]

More than 200,000 people have already reserved a Ford F-150 Lightning, which means it’s basically all sold out for 2022.
