The New 2022 Ford F-150

 

Forget about everything you thought about what pickup trucks should be. Visit your local Ford dealership and check out the new 2022 Ford F-150. This line of pickups exceeds all expectations when it comes to the classic vehicle, setting it to a new luxury standard.

The pickup vehicle market has changed dramatically in recent years. There are now more midsize and tiny "crossover" vehicles on the road than we had seen over the past few decades. But full-size trucks are leaders in sales for how they cater to truck drivers' needs more.

The Ford F-150 is an iconic full-sized pickup truck that reigns supreme among the best-selling pickup trucks in the United States and Canada. With more advanced technology, a long list of truck-friendly features, and a modern interior, the 2022 Ford F-150 is presently one of our favorites in the class and has become the benchmark across 14 generations of pickups.

Why Choose the 2022 F-150?

The 2022 Ford F-150 is a workhorse that can be configured to suit a variety of duties thanks to a wide choice of trims and body variants.

The 2022 F-150's surprisingly smooth driving characteristics demonstrate its progress from its basic roots. It's also more capable, with towing and hauling figures on par with or better than competitors in the segment. A vehicle must have a bed, cab, and engine to be a pickup truck. However, it needs a lot more to be considered an F-150. 

2022 F-150 Trim Levels

The 2022 Ford F-150 comes in six primary trim levels; The XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. Which will you choose? That depends on many factors including your lifestyle, budget, and needs.
