Testing Shows Ford F-150 Lightning Is Ready for Westland Winter

2022 F-150 Lightning | North Brothers Ford | Westland, MI

Ford recently put the all-electric F-150 Lightning through its paces, testing it to ensure that it can endure everything a Michigan winter has to throw its way. The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning recently completed the Ike Gauntlet™, a towing test conceived by TFLtruck, while enduring incredibly cold weather. And it didn’t break a sweat.

In February, Ford engineers tested a pre-production F-150 Lightning along an 8-mile stretch along Colorado’s I-70. Along the way, a 7% incline brings elevation to 11,158 feet above sea level ahead of the Eisenhower Memorial Tunnel, making consistent towing quite difficult.

And as if that’s not enough, the F-150 Lightning endured this testing in the heart of winter. With windchills well below zero, the F-150 Lightning got the job done, showing that it’s more than ready for whatever Westland, Michigan, can throw its way.

Production on the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning began in April ahead of the all-electric truck arriving nationwide at dealerships like North Brothers Ford. With incredible power, speed, range, and technology, the F-150 Lightning is a must-try if you’re ready to embrace the future of driving.
