Ford Unveils F-150 Lightning

2022 Ford F150 Lightning | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ

The Ford F-150 Lightning has finally been revealed — and it delivers power, efficiency, and capability that’ll impress even the most discerning drivers.

 

This beastly electrified pickup boasts standard 4×4, a rear independent suspension, and dual in-board motors that enable it to deliver 563 horsepower and 775 lb-ft of torque, along with a projected 300 miles of range. With all of that power, the F-150 Lightning is expected to achieve a 0-60 time between 4 and 5 seconds.

 

But the F-150 Lightning is more than just quick. Thanks to its new heavy-duty steel frame, this innovative truck is estimated to tow around 10,000 pounds when equipped with the Max Trailer Tow Package. Its sturdy frame also enables it to offer a payload capacity of around 2,000 pounds.

 

And if you opt for the Ford Intelligent Backup Power feature, you’ll have 9.6 kilowatts of power at your fingertips, which you can use to power everything from lights and appliances to RVs and tools. Its electrified powertrain also frees up space under the hood for additional storage space – its handy frunk offers 14.1 cubic feet of room. That’s enough to store two sets of golf clubs or 400 pounds of payload.

That translates to an amazing 12,700 pounds of maximum towing capability** and up to 2,120 pounds of payload.*** And as if that’s not enough, the F-150 PowerBoost® is also standard with the Pro Power Onboard™ generator, which delivers 2.4 kilowatts of power on demand.

Ford Truck Leveling Kit Now Available

Ford Truck Leveling Kit | Phoenix, AZ

Off-roading in your Ford F-150 or Ranger has just gotten better. In a stunning first, Ford Performance Parts has unleashed an after-sale Ford truck leveling kit for both the F-150 and Ranger models, which will improve off-road performance and increase customization.

For starters, this leveling kit adds FOX™ shocks that have been uniquely optimized for the Ford trucks. Further, the aftermarket kit ups ground clearance (with a 2-inch left) and boasts new front coilover springs for an improved spring rate, new aluminum FOX shock bodies for easier cooling, and upper front mounts with polyurethane bushing to reduce unwanted noise and vibration.

So how does this improve off-roading in the F-150 and Ranger? According to Ford, F-150 trucks with the 145-inch wheelbase will benefit from a 22% in approach angle and 7% increase in breakover angle. Ranger models have a similar story: 21% increase in approach angle and 10% increase in breakover angle.

“Ford Performance Parts developed these kits to make the off-road experience even better for our Ranger and F-150 customers,” remarked Eric Cin, global director, Ford Vehicle Personalization and Accessories. “Truck customers are asking for options for increased capability and customization, and the new leveling suspension kits for Ranger and F-150 deliver on that need.”

Ford F-150 Earns Spot in the Consumer Reports 200,000-Mile Survey

2018 Ford F-150

Consumer Reports recently released its annual list of vehicle most likely to still be on the road at 200,000 miles, and the Ford F-150 was the only pickup truck included.

Durability is a hugely important factor for car buyers, who are looking for more than a car that can take them from place to place; they’re looking for a solid investment. When considering which car to buy, this Consumer Reports survey offers helpful insights.

Judges examined used vehicles at higher mileage ranges, and the cars that made it to 200,000 miles or more without significant repairs made the list. 200,000 miles is an average of 16.67 years, or 16 years and eight months, at an average of 12,000 miles per year.

The Consumer Reports 200,000-mile survey looked at cars from the early and mid-2000s. The Ford F-150 has just gotten stronger and more durable with each model year. Other trucks may make it to 200,000 miles, but they require a lot more maintenance work than the F-150.

Consumer Reports writer Jeff S. Bartlet pointed out that “any car can make it to 200,000 miles if you’re willing to put enough money into it,” but that it makes more sense to buy a vehicle that lasts a long time on its own, with standard maintenance and minimal repairs needed.

For 2018, the F-150 adds a new engine to its powertrain options: a Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel. The Ford F-150 Turbo-Diesel engine will reportedly grant drivers best-in-class performance and power specs, in addition to offering excellent fuel economy.

 

Diesel engines have been increasing in popularity over the past few years. Ford answered the consumer demand for a diesel option last year when it announced the updated 2018 Ford F-150 would be including the choice of 3.0-liter Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel engine. Official specs regarding the new diesel engine indicate that it will grant drivers best-in-class horsepower, towing and payload capacity, and torque, while achieving an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 30 mpg on the highway.*

 

With 11,400 pounds maximum towing capacity and 2,020 pounds maximum payload, the F-150 Turbo-Diesel engine offers drivers plenty of stunning force without sacrificing fuel economy. The Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel also utilizes a mechanical fan and dual radiator shutters to optimize performance.

New 2018 F-150 Diesel is the First of Its Kind

2018 F-150 Diesel

The 2018 F-150 Diesel is causing quite a stir in the auto industry, offering a Power Stroke V6 Diesel engine that works to optimize power while using less gas. Although the 2018 F-150 has several updates, this new diesel engine option is perhaps the most significant.

According to Car and Driver, the diesel engine is turbocharged and mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, to yield optimum performance. You may be wondering, “Why should I buy a diesel engine?” While old diesel engines produced dark black smoke and guzzled fuel, modern engines are quieter and typically require less maintenance and fuel.

Previously, diesel engines were only offered in Europe, but we’re seeing some changes in the industry. Diesel engines have low-end power because they don’t need to be revved for better acceleration. They also have better towing due to increased torque. Because they don’t need spark plugs or other components, many people see them as more reliable than traditional gasoline engines.

Thinking about buying a diesel? Stop by Sanderson Ford to learn more about the 2018 Ford F-150. You can test the truck in person, and our expert staff will tell you more about the array of features on the F-150.
