I’m Driving The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Soon: What Do You Want To Know?

Pasted

I’m about to drive Ford’s first-ever all-electric F-150, and I am excited — mostly to see cool hardware and hang out with geeky engineers, but also to drive the thing. Five hundred and eighty horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque should be epic. I have many questions about this truck, and I’m sure you do, too. So hit me with them in the comments.

The Autopian’s first-ever press trip will involve me flying to Texas to drive the Ford F-150 lightning. It’s going to be cool, though I do have some concerns about what will happen to this website when it’s being 100% run by Jason Torchinsky. I’m just going to preemptively apologize for whatever happens or doesn’t happen tomorrow and Wednesday.

Anyway, let me know what questions you have about the Lightning. Do you have technical questions you’d like answered?

Are you curious about off-road performance? What questions do you have on that front?

What do you want to know about the cabin? Should I ask what this little digital dog’s name is?:

Tell me what’s on your mind re: towing:

Are there things you just MUST know about the F-150 Lightning’s ride quality?

Spill your curiosities in the comments, and I will do my best to satisfy them.

  1. Be more interested in a PHEV, as there is a LOT of exploring to do in Canada/ western USA that sees you 150+ miles from a charger. One would think a vehicle with a 40-60 mile battery only mode, a la Volt, would be a better option, and because of reduced battery size, allow for twice as many to be made with the same amount of resources.

  2. Is RHD a possibility for other markets?
    What’s the rear axle articulation like? IRS Vs solid axle with leaf springs
    Is the IRS related to Rivian’s? If so – How much part sharing is going on between the 2 trucks?
    Off-road performance – is there any torque vectoring, etc instead of diff locks or traction control

  3. What’s the payload? Not the marketing number that’s a never-sold theoretical stripped down version, but the actual as-built door sticker payload on the review trucks. Along with range, that’s going to be the real limiter for towing, not the 10,000lb tow rating.

  4. Can you please test/check out/describe in detail the e-locker on the rear diff? I am wondering if it is a mechanical link between left and right side half shafts or merely a ABS-create virtual lock that prevents wheelspin of the wheel with no traction or something else. Also, can you sleep lying down on the back seat comfortably?
