The pickup market charged forward in 2021 as Ford introduced the first fully electric pickup to consumers. The 2022 F-150 Lightning puts electric power into the popular F-150 pickup body, and does so at a price point close to the gas and diesel models. Ford says there won't be any issues with performance from the new truck; president and CEO Jim Farley's description was: "It hauls ass and tows like a beast." An on-board generator offers the ability to provide power to tools and, with optional connectors, houses when necessary. The truck is also packed with technology and driver comfort features.
