THE 2022 FORD F-150, A WINNING FORMULA
If there's one vehicle receiving lot of press over the past year, it's the Mustang Mach-E 2022. The Mustang-inspired electric crossover is attracting the attention of both muscle car enthusiasts and zero-emission vehicle enthusiasts.
The vehicle has something for everyone, with its Mustang-like design and electric capabilities that, depending on the version, turn it into an actual muscle car. Launched last year, it has undergone few changes but has a little more autonomy and adds a Glacier White version with an exceptional design.
A refined interior
Beyond the exterior styling, the Ford Mustang Mach-E has a well-thought-out interior packed with the latest technology. Among other things, it houses SYNC 4, the newest iteration of the company's multimedia system. Of course, the large screen in the middle of the center console is exceptional and easy to read.
In addition to enhanced voice commands, over-the-air updates and a large display, the system can also integrate all Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. It also has advanced features and a physical button implanted directly into the screen for easy menu navigation.
Versions in abundance
As is always the case, the 2022 Ford F-150 comes in many versions capable of meeting the needs of workers and families alike. From XL to Lariat, Platinum to Limited, North America's best-selling pickup comes in various cab configurations and box lengths. A Tremor version also comes with extra equipment for easy off-road access.
Depending on the level selected, the work options will allow for towing of up to 3,719 to 6,260 kilos and offers a maximum load of up to 1,002 kilos.
Comfort on the menu
The F-150 is more than just a pickup truck, however. The cabin was designed to be versatile, practical and comfortable. Seats that fold flat, for example, or a transmission lever that hides in the center console to make room for a work (or picnic) table, are just a few of the options available. Add in the Sync 4 multimedia system, one of the most advanced on the market, Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity, over-the-air updates and FordPass connectivity, and you have one of the most connected trucks around.
There are even some handy extras, like an optional 7.2 kW generator (on hybrid versions), a worktable, and a measuring ruler built right into the powered tailgate. An electric step is also available. All this while maintaining the rigid chassis and aluminum construction that made the F-150 so corrosion resistant.
A smashing debut
In 2022, Ford is expected to add an ultra-powerful version of its truck to its catalogue: the Raptor R. Reserved for a select few, the Raptor R will be available in limited quantities. But beware, the power is not limited. This new kind of beast should develop 760 horsepower thanks to a supercharged 5.2-litre Predator V8 engine found in the Mustang Shelby GT500 S550.
With its numerous versions, a renewed color lineup and a long list of practical accessories, the 2022 Ford F-150 is both the perfect work companion and the ideal family vehicle.
