2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Towing Gallery

Photos from our review of the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is the first production electric full-size pickup truck from a major automaker. There’s a reason for that: While EVs make great commuters, they typically don’t stack up to the demands of the average truck owner. We spent a week with the Lightning to find out if the machine was capable of handling towing a couple of side-by-sides. It not only handled it, but took to the task with ease, towing as well as our Ram 2500 Cummins. Now if only someone could solve the charging problem.
