The upcoming 2022 Ford F-150 is getting further upgrades. The goal is to beat arch-enemies such as Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500, so additional improvements are expected. Ram 1500 model comes with a hybrid powertrain and it also offers TRX variant with 707 hp. On the other hand, the F-150 model will offer a hybrid variant too, but the electric variant and the new Raptor R are a nice advantage.
Besides that, Blue Oval will offer a Tremor package, numerous trim levels, and much more. Under the hood, you can choose between gasoline and diesel engines, but electrification is now the most popular option. The sales should begin later this year, so here’s everything you need to know.
Ford F-150 Spy Photos
The approaching 2022 Ford F-150 will once again deliver a very modern and upright look. Some cosmetic upgrades will happen, so the new F-150 will be the best one yet. First spy shots are available and the images are showing the latest changes. Blue Oval opted for a more aggressive approach, especially upfront.
The bumper looks bolder and slightly wider. Furthermore, even the grille and the headlights will slightly grow in size. The taillights will get the same treatment. However, the pickup’s size won’t change. That also means the platform is the same, but don’t be surprised if Ford delivers some changes under the skin.
Wide Range of Available Engines
The all-new 2022 Ford F-150 will once again offer both the diesel and gasoline engine options. This famous pickup truck offers 2.7-liter, 3.5-liter, and 5.0-liter gasoline powertrains. A 3.3-liter is also in the offer, so you really have a great choice. A 3.3-liter and 3.0-liter turbodiesel variants are available too.
If that is not good enough, F-150 Hybrid is perhaps the best option you can get. An all-electric powertrain is in the works, so F-150 offers literally everything you can imagine. Ford’s relatively new 10-speed automatic transmission is standard once again.
F-150 Raptor R Will Get Potent V8 Engine
The forthcoming 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor will also get one important upgrade. This high-performance pickup will introduce a potent 5.2-liter V8 supercharged engine. Mustang Shelby GT500 is using the same engine and it develops 720 hp. The goal is to rival the Ram Rebel TRX model with 707 horsepower.
Besides that, Raptor will introduce various exterior changes, interior upgrades, and even some updates under the skin. Raptor R is new version that will go on sale next year. Until that happens, we believe the regular F-150 Raptor will continue with mid-cycle improvements.
2022 Ford F-150 Release Date, Price
The 2022 Ford F-150 is coming to the dealerships later this year. The second half of 2021 is the most likely launch date. However, things could change if the coronavirus pandemic continues for another couple of months. The price will once again start at around $31,000 for the base trim level. Blue Oval will release more details in the coming weeks.
