Plus, the remote start feature gets the pickup warmed up and ready before you've stepped inside the cabin.

Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi hotspot allows up to 10 devices to access the internet at once within a range of up to 50 feet from the truck. So, no matter what has to get finished in BC, you can do it nearly anywhere with the 2021 Ranger.

This truck offers two cab configurations to suit whatever job sites may demand, along with other add-ons like nine different wheel types and multiple accessories available.

SuberCab models offer seating for two people up front on bucket chairs and another pair in the back bench—which also boasts a handy storage area underneath. Furthermore, XL trim levels can have the entire rear passenger accommodation removed to maximize cargo space, while there are a further 6 feet in the bed, as well.

Meanwhile, the SuperCrew configuration features four full-size doors for easy entries and exits, and it can accommodate up to five passengers, with under-seat storage, to boot. But don't worry, BC drivers still get a big 5-foot long bed, too.

With the absence of a traditional engine anchoring this all-electric pickup, Ford has unveiled its front trunk – allowing BC fleets to uncover new storage possibilities to accommodate any haul.

Boasting 400L of cargo space, the 2022 F-150 Lightning has the largest front trunk in the truck industry. This class-leading volume is further bolstered with a payload capacity of 181 kg – enough to carry eight 22.7-kg bags of concrete. Messy jobs are also no match for the front trunk. The washable and drainable compartment is completely sealed, so you and your workmates won’t get dirty driving between job sites.

Featuring a cargo management system with grocery hooks, tie-downs, a cargo net and a multi-functional lid divider, the 2022 F-150 Lightning’s front cargo hold is practical for the off-hours. There are also four 120V onboard power outlets with 2.4kW of exportable power to plug in a microwave or TV when tailgating with friends.

Function and practical, the 2022 F-150 Lightning has redefined the pickup segment, allowing BC commercial fleets to reimagine new ways of working. To learn more about this all-electric truck’s helpful features, contact our team at Skaha Ford for details.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Delivers All-Electric Driving Range to BC Fleets

<a href=""><img src="images/upload/June_2021/commercial_news/21_16x9.jpg"alt="A 2022 F-150 Lightning recharging its battery in a garage while two workers clean up the job site"/></a>Your workday is full of demands and worrying about your truck’s gas tank shouldn’t be one of them. With the launch of the 2022 F-150 Lightning, Ford is connecting BC commercial fleet operators with 100% electric range, so you can spend more time at the job site – and not on the sidelines.

Hitting the market next spring, all 2022 F-150 Lightning models will be offered with the option of two lithium-ion liquid-cooled battery packs. The standard-range battery will deliver an anticipated 370-km driving range on a full charge or there’s an extended-range version that can travel 483 km if you regularly do longer hauls. 

According to Driving, battery restoration will be managed by a DC fast-charger that will have you up and running in 44 minutes with the standard-range battery or 41 minutes with the extended-range option. After a long day on the road, the 2022 F-150 Lightning can also recharge overnight while you relax using an at-home Level 2 charger.

Keep up with the demands of your day without worrying about how you’ll power up your truck. To learn more about the 2022 F-150 Lightning, contact our team at Skaha Ford in Penticton, BC for a full spec review.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Connects BC Drivers to All-Electric Power

(Posted on Jun 6, 2021 at 04:48PM by Michelle Bogle)
<a href=""><img src="images/upload/June_2021/commercial_news/5_16x9.jpg"alt="A grey 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning towing a trailer on an ocean-side highway"/></a>With the unveiling of the 2022 F-150 Lightning, Ford is redefining the full-size pickup segment – connecting BC drivers to the brawn and capability they need with an all-electric powertrain. Without a lick of gasoline, you’ll be able to tow, haul and power up projects, so you can work more efficiently.

According to Driving, the new Lightning packs a big punch. Using dual in-board motors and a standard 4x4 drivetrain, this platform will throw a reported 775 lb.-ft. of torque – more than any F-150. When paired with the 563-hp extended-range battery, the 2022 F-150 Lightning can bolt from zero to 100 km/h in just over four seconds. That’s faster than the Ranger!

In addition to its ballistic acceleration, the Lightning proves a skillful hauler. With the standard-range battery, this all-electric truck can tow 3,493 kg, but opting for the extended-range version with the Max Trailer Tow package increases the pickup’s pulling power to 4,536 kg. Carry heavy loads? The 2022 F-150 Lightning is an all-electric workhorse, boasting a maximum 816-kg payload capacity.

It’s time to rejoice, BC commercial fleet operators – the battery-powered F-150 Lightning is set to arrive next spring! To learn more about this truck’s specs and features, contact Skaha Ford in Penticton for a full review.

So go ahead and bring all the gear you want; this pickup can handle it all while staying sure-footed.

The Ranger can tow up to 3402 kg (7500 lbs) and take a maximum payload of 748 kg (1650 lbs) in its bed, so you can haul anything you desire. And for hitching those wagons, this truck boasts 4-pin wired ball mounting provisions in its rear bumper.

But there is no need to worry about wobbling either because Trailer Sway Control is installed as standard. This system pairs with the AdvanceTrac and Roll Stability systems to ensure attachments stay sure-footed by reducing engine power and applying selective braking when needed during drives in BC.

After acing every trial it underwent, top-tier performance is assured.

During these tests, this truck took on terrain so intense that robots had to be used for the driving, and it spent days inside a lab to find areas that rattled or squeaked to remove unwanted sounds. This also ensured a robust suspension that could stand up to all types of trails.

Plus, the pickup had to haul heavy loads up a steep hill in temperatures up to 37.8°C (100°F), so you're assured of excellent performance on the hottest of days. As a result, the Ranger is more than proven to handle anything you come across in BC.

This powerhouse boasts a 10-speed SelectShift Automatic Transmission that optimizes progressions and provides quick, smooth changing both up and down. It has a wide-span gear spacing that's tied to drag-reduction technology and three overdrive speeds.

That gearbox is then paired with the 2.3L EcoBoost gasoline engine to deliver up to 310 lb-ft of torque.
