2022 Ford F150 Redesign
2022 Ford F150 Redesign With the release of the Ford F-150, which was battered by Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra in 2019, the Ford F-150 is now the oldest full-size truck on the market. The F-150 aluminium model debuted back in 2014 and has since received a number of upgrades, including a refresher and a diesel engine for the 2018 model year. As the competition announced, the 2019 F-150 comes in a seemingly endless combination of trimming, engines, cabin configurations and wheelbase. If you’re in the market for a truck, there’s more than likely an F-150 for you.
This model is an XLT SuperCrew model with a 145-inch wheelbase. It is powered by the 2.7-liter EcoBoost, the second most powerful engine in the F-150 range. With 325 hp and 400 panda feet of torque, however, it’s not a hose. Our test car had a range of options, including $995 for the engine, $590 for blind spot and tow monitoring, $495 for a spray-in beggar and $235 for Sync Connect.
Editor-in-chief Greg Migliore: I enjoyed the great achievement of the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. 2022 Ford F150 Redesign was the first to focus on the Turbo six as a credible powertrain in full-size trucks and deserves to have taken that risk. I never found this engine deficient, and the torque was abundantly low in the band. The 10-speed automatic is also generally smooth, especially on the motorway. The smallest EcoBoost – you still get the biggest 3.5-liter V6 in the F-150 – my favorite. Less is more, but if I really bought a pickup, I would still stay in the V8.

I enjoyed a chilly weekend in the middle of autumn in this F-150. Behold fire engine red with plenty of chrome, managed to stand out in pickup happy Metro Detroit. The exterior design of the F-150 grows on me. It’s not my favorite in the segment, but it’s blocky, confident and knows what it is. The super cabin is spectacularly spacious. It’s much easier to get a rear-facing car seat in that truck than in my three-row crossover. The materials and design of the cabin are the only deductions. They’re fine, but they’re tracking the 2019 Ram, which manages to look well-equipped in almost every trim.
Far and far away is what impressed me most about this F-150 of this relatively low 2.7-liter engine. Despite his position in the hierarchy, he makes for shocking dots. The truck accelerates confidently and smoothly. So much so, I popped the bonnet just to make absolutely sure it was really the 2.7-liter fan below. Not only is it a lot of power, but it’s also extremely smooth and quiet. Luckily, the 10-speed automatic is also smooth, and it seems happier to choose a gear and stick with it than in some other Ford applications.
The rest of the truck is less weird but still remarkable. The XLT was quite simple. It did not have either automatic climate control or keyless entry and startup. But the seats have plenty of pillows and there is a huge margin for the front and rear passengers. Plastics are hard and cheap, and the dash begins to show a little age, but the controls are easy to find and use. The ride is fairly smooth, with very little shake over bumps. The steering wheel is rather indefinite but with a decent weight.
In general, I prefer the new Ram 1500 for its sharper handling and nicer interior. But the 2022 Ford F150 Redesign is still a great full-size truck. And this is even more impressive, as this truck is now larger than the twins Ram and Silverado / Sierra. Ford can be packed into a sea of doubt and criticism from his decision to leave limousines, but the man knows how to build a satisfying truck. Our F-150 is not one of those luxury trucks with a price tag that lists over $60,000. With the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, it’s much more medium. The driving experience, though, doesn’t suffer from the modest packaging.

A new 10-speed automatic gearbox was silky smooth in operation. I like Ford to make you see what speed is inside a nice little stack on the instrument cluster. It’s already burst into third gear under slight acceleration, given the speedometer combs 10 mph, but you wouldn’t even know it changed the gears unless you’re watching. Under heavier acceleration, it is similar to the expiring six-way finish. The first and second gear are dispatched like a normal six or seven-speed gearbox, and then it starts shuffling through the upper gears. At no point did it feel like she was chasing the right gear. I think Ford and GM have done well with this 10-speed — cruise along the highway at 75 km/h with the revs comfortably sitting at 1,700 u/for a fuel-efficient ride.
I also love the interior of the F-150. It’s also not down to special techno gadgets or quirks. No, 2022 Ford F150 Redesign just nailed all the fundamentals. Armrests on the door and center console were the perfect height. Huge volume and tuning buttons make the operation of the fast Sync 3 system a breeze. Sightlines are better than any full-size pickups, and the seat position just feels right. The Ram may look more imaginative and has more features when fully leached, but I didn’t miss that in our F-150 with fabric seats.

The most striking change to the exterior of the F-150 2020 is its reworked grid, which is both larger and more defined than in years before. It is also speculated that the 2020 F-150 could be equipped with non-slip rear windows as well as limited-edition body styles to give you the extra edge on the road.
Inside, the new F-150 is expected to offer plush leather seating areas, as well as increased head and legroom. Still, you can expect to get the same high-tech infotainment capabilities (SYNC® 3, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, to name a few) that have called the F-150 home.
Perhaps the best thing about the F-150 2020 is that it comes with an available hybrid engine! This hybrid engine was built at the Ford’s Rouge manufacturing facility in Dearborn, Michigan, and will come in addition to the gasoline-powered F-150 models you’d probably expect. Not much information has been given about this new powertrain, but we know that once released, it will include a whole new element in the F-150 capability.
2022 Ford F150 Price
Pickup trucks have much fancy and much more expensive than they used to, but both trucks still start at just below the $30,000 mark. Prices rise as you go through the extensive model series, and the Silverado spikes with the high-country trim starting in the mid-$50 series. The shunting toppies F-150 Limited, however, starts in medium $60k range and maybe even higher with options.
The Ford and the Chevy are similarly priced if similarly equipped, and if you can afford the really high-end models, they’re actually worth it, despite what might seem like crazy prices for something as utilitarian as a pickup truck.
