Ford Intelligent Backup Power Lets F-150 Lightning Power Your Home

Power Home With F-150 Lightning | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

Breaking down everything that makes the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning awesome is quite a tall task, but there’s definitely one feature that has extra excited at Sanderson Ford. With Ford Intelligent Backup Power, you can turn the all-electric F-150 Lightning into a generator that powers your home in an outage.

Ford Intelligent Backup Power is available with the help of Sunrun, who makes the Home Integration System that works with the 80-amp Ford Charge Station Pro. Once installed, these components allow the F-150 Lightning to sense when there’s a power outage and reverse the flow of power.

When the power is out, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning offers enough output to power your home for up to three days.[1] With rationing — or with the power provided by Sunrun’s available solar energy system — you can power a home for up to 10 days.

Sunrun is the preferred installer of the components needed to take advantage of Ford Intelligent Backup Power. If you combine installation of the Ford Charge Station Pro, Home Integration System, and solar energy system, you may qualify for reduced costs and zero dollars down.

Ford Intelligent Backup Power is just one of the many awesome features of the all-new F-150 Lightning. To learn more about how this electric truck changes everything from here on in, contact the experts at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona.

If you listen carefully, you can hear it. The desert is calling your name! You can race over the dunes and crawl over the rocks thanks to the latest release from Ford. The 2022 Ford Bronco Raptor is the world’s first Ultra4 Racing-Inspired SUV, and it is delivering performance, design, and capability that goes beyond what even a Bronco can do (and that’s saying A LOT!)

“Raptor is the apex of our off-road lineup and is now a full lineup with race-proven content and design that you can’t get from anyone else,” said Jim Farley, chief executive officer, Ford Motor Company. “Only Ford could create a Bronco Raptor.”

To take on the challenges of desert terrain, the design team at Ford pulled out all the stops. Not only did they outfit the fierce SUV with off-road-ready features, but they also made sure the Bronco Raptor was bold and extreme.

The Bronco Raptor easily takes on the sand with heavy-duty bash and skid plates, new shock towers, a high ground clearance, tow hooks, integrated removable Rigid LED fog lamps, and an enhanced suspension. You can make the exterior design stand out even more with the available Bronco Raptor Graphics Package. It features splatter graphics applied to the hood and rear bodysides.

The Ford Explorer is one of America’s favorite family SUVs. Now fresh in its sixth generation, the latest Explorer comes with several new features and even a new trim to keep things interesting.

New ST-Line model

The high-performance Ford Explorer ST model is so popular that Ford decided to introduce the ST-Line, a variant of the SUV that combines its good looks with the more efficient turbocharged EcoBoost® four-cylinder available at other trim levels. It has a cool interior with red stitching accents, door-jamb protector plates with unique ST-Line logos, and stylish 20-inch wheels.

Ford Bronco, Maverick Named North American Utility and Truck of the Year

Ford Maverick | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

For the second year running, Ford has taken two of the three most coveted awards in the automotive industry. The Bronco SUV was named the 2022 North American Utility of the Year while the Maverick pickup was named the 2022 North American Truck of the Year.

The winners of the annual North American Car, Utility, and Truck of the Year™ awards, which last year recognized the F-150 and Mustang Mach-E, are typically announced each year at the Detroit Auto Show. They are selected by a panel of over 50 jurors assessing the best new vehicles of the year based on design, safety, driver satisfaction, innovation, and overall value.

This year, 36 vehicles made the initial list of eligible vehicles before they were narrowed down to 23 semi-finalists, and then nine finalists. Only three vehicles could go home with an award, though, and it’s an impressive feat that Ford managed to snatch two of those twice once again, after doing the same last year.

The all-new Ford Bronco represents the launch of an outdoor brand of exclusive 4×4 vehicles with major off-road capability, while the all-new Maverick is an affordable, full-hybrid pickup truck that gets 42 mpg in the city.[1] With credentials like that, it’s no surprise they impressed the jurors.

Check Out the 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline

2022 Ford Expedition | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

The 2022 Ford Expedition is a powerful SUV that’s perfect for adventures with your family. But when it comes to adventure, there may be no version better than the 2022 Expedition Timberline — the most off-road capable Expedition Ford has ever made.

The Ford Expedition Timberline is equipped with a standard 4×4 drivetrain as well as a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 that delivers best-in-class power at 440 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.[1] When you add the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package, it can tow up to 9,200 pounds, a perfect choice for bringing your boat along to the river or towing a camper.

The Expedition Timberline has ground clearance of 10.6 inches, so you can easily navigate over bumpy surfaces and steep inclines. That’s more available ground clearance than any other off-road SUV in the segment. It also sports the same underbody protection as the legendary F-150 Raptor.

Ford has also packed it with towing tech like Trail Turn Assist, which reduces your turn radius to make tighter turns, and Hill Descent Control to stay steady on sharp drops. Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ with Trailer Reverse Guidance is also offered on the Expedition Timberline, which makes it easier to back up when you have a trailer attached.

If you’ve got big adventure plans for 2022, get in touch with the experts at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. We’ll let you know more about what makes the 2022 Ford Expedition Timberline a can’t-miss.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Offers Massive Mega Power Frunk

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

The new 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is coming later this year to Sanderson Ford and Glendale, Arizona. When it arrives, the F-150 Lightning will bring innovations like the Mega Power Frunk.

The Mega Power Frunk — frunk being short for front trunk — arose after Ford user experience designers spoke to Ford customers about their storage wants and needs. Truck customers wanted a space that was large, shaped to hold different kinds of cargo, and lockable and secure. A designer whipped out a cardboard box and made the first prototype for the Mega Power Frunk.

Standard for the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning, the Mega Power Frunk is designed to fit two golf bags comfortably. And besides being spacious, it has a rubberized, drainable floor that makes it super easy to clean. These features make it perfect for tailgating, camping, and much more.

Ford loaded the frunk with tons of smart features, too, like truck bed lights installed in the hood instead of inside the trunk to prevent cargo from blocking the lights. Four electrical outlets and two USB ports add functionality, letting you hook up laptops and other electronics on the go. Plus, you can open the frunk six different ways — from the key fob, a button in the grille, the FordPass™ app on your phone, and more.

The Mega Power Frunk is just one of many reasons to check out the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. It’ll begin arriving at Sanderson Ford this spring for customers who have already made their reservations and pre-orders. If you want to be one of the next in line, give us a call.

  • New Ford Expedition. If you think you’ll be in need of a new large family SUV next year, your timing is impeccable. The updated Ford Expedition launches in the spring with seating for up to eight, plenty of power, the latest in SYNC® technology, and a new Timberline trim with exceptional off-road capabilities
  • The first-ever Ford Bronco Raptor, F-150 Raptor R. Ford put the world on notice with the returning Bronco, and it’s about to do it again this year. Sometime in 2022, Ford will reveal the Bronco Raptor, an even more high-powered version of the SUV. Ford will also take the F-150 Raptor to new heights with the mysterious Raptor R, which some speculate will be supercharged

And that’s just some of what we know now — imagine what the next 12 months will reveal. One thing is for sure when it comes to new Ford vehicles coming in 2022 — expect excellence, intelligence, toughness, and even a bit of the unexpected.

Another thing that’s for sure: Whatever Ford brings to the table next year, you’ll find it at Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. Have a safe, happy, and healthy New Year!
