The Ford F-150 is the perfect embodiment of the modern pickup truck. The F-150 remains the best-selling vehicle in the United States, thanks to its wide selection of engines, outstanding towing capacity, user-friendly infotainment system, and many optional truck-friendly features. It’s certainly a popular model at the Flagstaff Ford dealer.
For 2022, the Ford F-150 gets an available Black Appearance package for the XL, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trim levels. The Bed Utility package is a standard feature on the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims, and it’s now optional on the XL, XLT, Lariat and Tremor. It comes with locking cleat-style tie-downs and a tailgate step.
According to the Ford dealer near Flagstaff, the 2022 Ford F-150 is available in six main trim levels, listed as XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited, Tremor and Raptor. The F-150 is offered in three cab styles: regular, SuperCab (extended) and SuperCrew (crew cab). There are three bed lengths — 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet, and 8 feet — depending on which cab style you choose.
Kelley Blue Book gives the 2022 Ford F-150 high praise, writing: “The Ford F-150 is America’s best-selling vehicle for good reasons. It does just about everything you could want a full-size truck to do with class-leading towing and hauling capabilities, impressive off-road chops when properly equipped, and an interior that’s both practical and upscale. With a wide range of trims, engines, and configurations available, there’s an F-150 for anyone in the market for a big pickup.”

A hybrid powertrain with the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 and an electric motor that combine to generate 430 hp and 570 lb-ft
Each powerplant is matched to a 10-speed automatic transmission and gets rear- or four-wheel drive, except Raptor, which gets standard four-wheel drive.
As you’d expect, the best fuel-economy figures come from the hybrid powertrain, which delivers 25 mpg city/26 mpg highway with two-wheel drive and 24 mpg city/24 mpg highway for models with four-wheel drive.*
Towing capacity is impressive. The base 3.3-liter V6 can pull 8,200 pounds. Choose the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, and that number jumps to an incredible 14,000 pounds. The 2022 F-150 has a maximum payload capacity of 3,250 pounds.
Standard features for the base XL trim level include 17-inch steel wheels, single-zone air conditioning, manual mirrors and windows (SuperCrew models get power windows), trailer sway control, pre-wired trailer connections vinyl flooring, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Driver assistance features that come standard include lane departure warning and forward collision mitigation.
