For 2022, the F-150 gains a new Black Appearance package that can be added to XL, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trims. The Bed Utility package was previously only available on the high-end King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited models, but is now an available option on the XL, XLT, Lariat, and Tremor. It has a locking cleat-style tie down and a tailgate step. This season also sees the introduction of Atlas Blue. We also review the all-electric 2022 F-150 Lightning, which will be released that year.

A 290-horsepower 3.3-liter V-6, a 400-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8, a 325-horsepower twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6, a 400-horsepower twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6, and a 250-horsepower 3.0-liter diesel V-6 are all available for the 2022 F-150. The F-150 has a 10-speed automatic transmission and your choice of two powerful engines.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The maximum weight that can be towed by a vehicle with the standard 3.3-liter V-6 engine is 8200 pounds, while vehicles with the optional 3.5-liter, 400-horsepower twin-turbo V-6 can tow up to 14,000 pounds. Maximum towing capacity is 13,000 pounds with the tried and true 5.0-liter V-8, 12,100 pounds with the diesel V-6, and 12,700 pounds with the hybrid model.

For the most part, the F-150’s cabin quality is on par with the Ram 1500s, especially in the F-150’s more expensive trim levels like the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited.

The EPA predicts up to 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway for the 2022 F-150 equipped with the turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6. The 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 can achieve up to 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
