With a wide range of trims and body styles, the 2022 Ford F-150 is a workhorse that can be outfitted to suit any number of tasks. Contractors and fleet managers will appreciate the low-cost and utilitarian nature of the base XL while oil barons and wealthy ranch owners will feel right at home in the King Ranch or Limited versions. A host of powertrains are offered too, including a hybrid and a diesel, and an off-road ready Tremor model promises to take you nearly anywhere you need to go. The F-150 has the grit to get the job done. It's not quite as nice to live with on a daily basis as its chief rival, the Ram 1500, but huge numbers of buyers have historically been swayed by the Ford's reputation and wider range of available features. We’re sure very few of them have regretted their purchase, so we're happy to put the F-150 on our Editors' Choice list.
What's New for 2022?
A new Black Appearance package is now available on the F-150 for 2022 and can be had on XL, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum models. The Bed Utility package is now available as an option on XL, XLT, Lariat, and Tremor trims and is standard on the upscale King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. It includes a tailgate step and locking cleat-style tie downs. Atlas Blue joins the color palette this year too. The all-electric F-150 Lightning will also launch for the 2022 model but we review that model separately.
Pricing and Which One to Buy
- XL - $31,685
- XLT - $39,825
- Lariat - $49,335
- Tremor - $53,930
- King Ranch - $60,305
- Platinum - $63,085
Limited - $77,530
The F-150 is available with multiple body styles and bed lengths. While the XLT model is a step up from the basic XL work truck, we prefer the additional luxuries on the Lariat. It costs almost $10,000 more than the XLT, which may put it out of reach for some buyers, but it has the best mix of features and affordability.
