  • ford has announced prices for the 2022 f-150 lightning, including pro, xlt, lariat, and platinum trims.
  • the base price is $41,669 including a mandatory $1695 destination charge.
  • the xlt starts at $54,669 and the lariat and platinum versions will be considerably more expensive—a loaded model starts above $92,000.

    update 1/4/22: ford has announced full pricing for the 2022 f-150 lightning lineup and we have updated this story accordingly. the build-and-price tool is now live on ford's website.

    the existing gasoline version of the ford f-150 starts just above $30,000, but that sum is hardly representative of the broad range of models available. similarly, the base price that ford has announced for the new electric version of the f-150, the 2022 lightning, is only part of the story. the base lightning, which is intended for commercial customers, will start at $41,669, and the xlt will start at $54,669. but the top lariat and platinum trim levels will reach much higher, with the platinum starting at a whopping $92,569.

    all lightnings will come with all-wheel drive and a crew cab, so by our approximation the most equivalent gasoline model is the 2021 f-150 xl supercrew 4wd with a short bed, which costs $41,855. that base version has a 3.3-liter v-6 engine with 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, which pales in comparison with the base lightning's 426 hp and 775 pound-feet.

    the lightning's base price also undercuts the new hybrid version of the f-150 by a few thousand dollars. a 2021 f-150 xl crew cab with the optional powerboost drivetrain starts at $46,350.

    when comparing xlt crew-cab versions, the lightning will be considerably more than an xlt 4wd with the v-6 ($45,500) and a few thousand more than an xlt model with the optional hybrid drivetrain ($49,995).

    ford says that the lightning will offer two different battery-pack sizes. the standard range pack claims a driving range of 230 miles, and the extended range, which is optional on all models except the platinum, is claimed to have a driving range of up to 300 miles. the extended range battery pack costs $10,000 on both the xlt and lariat versions of the f-150 lightning; it's standard on the platinum and not available on the pro.

    price vs. other electric trucks

    now that we've covered how the lightning fits into the f-150 lineup, what about how it compares to other electric pickups?

    the ford offers several versions that are cheaper than the $67,500 starting price for the upcoming rivian r1t, which is now on sale. tesla has offered up a $39,900 base-price estimate for the base version of the cybertruck, which doesn't have an arrival date set yet. the dual-motor cybertruck, which is more similar to the lightning because of its all-wheel drive, has an estimated price of $49,900 and is slated to go into production late this year, if tesla doesn't reschedule it. the gmc hummer ev is also considerably more expensive than the ford, with a starting price of $79,995 for the base version that won't arrive for a few more years.
