2022 saw the release of several new vehicles from Ford, including the F-150 Lightning electric pickup, the all-new Maverick compact pickup, and the Bronco Raptor performance off-roader. These new additions come hot on the heels of last year's releases of the Bronco SUV, the smaller Bronco Sport SUV, the all-electric Mustang Mach E, and the refreshed F-150 pickup.
For 2023, Ford is releasing new models of cars that come with the Ford Sync 4 operating system. Other existing models are also getting updates, such as the addition of BlueCruise driver-assist technology. This particular technology includes features such as adaptive cruise control and hands-free lane-centring. Ford has a lot to offer this year, so let's take a look at some of the things they've released and what's to come in the second half of 2022 and over into 2023.
The F-150 Lightning is Ford's all-electric full-size pickup truck that was released in spring 2022. The new electric truck looks like and promises the capability of the conventional F-150, with four trim levels ranging from a work truck to a luxury pickup. The truck has a two-way power system that can use the truck's charge as backup power for a home. Other updates include an available onboard scale option, a smart hitch, and adaptive dampers. Additionally, a new STX Black Appearance package was made available for the XL, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trims.
The 2022 Ford GT is a newly designed sports car that pays tribute to the original GT prototypes. It is said to mark the final year in the limited-production bout of race cars. Exterior features include the Wimbledon White paint and Antimatter Blue strokes. The car also has a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V-6 engine. One of the most exciting aspects of driving the 2022 Ford GT is that it feels light and easy despite its heavily-packed performance-driven installations.
This year's Mustang has three new equipment packages for 2022, which include a Stealth package, an Ice White package, and a Coastal Limited package. Each package will have different coloured wheels and trim. New wheel options and paint colours will be available later in the year.
On the other hand, the Mustang Mach-E gets a new Ice White package with Star White Metallic Tri-Coat paint and white trim pieces. A revised California Route 1 trim joins the lineup with available AWD and newly standard heated seats and steering wheel. Certain trims now get available 19-inch wheels, and a black-painted roof is now standard for both GT trims.
The mid-sized Ranger returns for the 2023 model year, bringing with it a few updates. These include an orange and black hood, an orange-accented grille, and colourful interior accents. Exclusive 18-inch wheels are standard, along with dark accents on the bumper, fender vents, and wheel lips.
The Transit is a great option for those looking for a reliable and affordable van. The new upgrades for the 2023 model year make it even more appealing, especially for those who need a van that can seat more than one person comfortably.
The E-Transit is an electric cargo van that has a range of 126 miles and a price tag of under $45,000. The E-Transit has features such as AC and DC fast charging, Ford Co-Pilot360 driver aids, a 12-inch touchscreen with navigation and apps, unique fleet management tech, and adaptive cruise control.
Ford has made a number of changes for the 2022 model year, with a whole lot more coming for 2023! Some of these changes include the development of autonomous cars, the shift to electric cars, and the expansion of their services. These changes are sure to make Ford a major player in the automotive industry for years to come.
