2022 Ford F-150 Lightning | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

When you get the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning or the F-150 PowerBoost® Hybrid, you can help other electrified cars out with vehicle-to-vehicle charging. This is possible thanks to available Pro Power Onboard, a built-in generator that lets you power tools, electronics, and yes, other vehicles on the go.

Using Pro Power Onboard, the F-150 Lightning or Hybrid can add up to 20 miles of charge in an hour for smaller vehicles. Testing shows that you could use this feature to help another F-150 Lightning recover up to 13 miles in an hour.

This is just one of the many ways you can use Pro Power Onboard not just for yourself but your friends and neighbors. This feature is perfect for charging tools, laptops, televisions, area lighting, and so much more.

Introducing the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Mega Power Frunk

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

The 2022 F-150 Lightning is the groundbreaking new all-electric pickup truck Ford, and thanks to its lack of an engine, it comes with an exciting feature: the Mega Power Frunk.

Ford took customer feedback into consideration when designing the frunk — or front trunk — on the F-150 Lightning. Customers were eager to have a pickup truck with lockable storage, better for protecting valuables than the typical truck bed.

Ford customers wanted ample space with the F-150 Lightning, and Ford has delivered with the Mega Power Frunk. The largest front trunk of any truck in the industry, the F-150 Lightning Mega Power Frunk is designed to be asymmetrical, capable of fitting two golf bags, but it’s perfect for all kinds of luggage.

And that’s not the only way the Mega Power Frunk is super versatile. The frunk comes with four electrical outlets and two USB charging ports. It also has lights in the hood to light up the cargo space, rather than inside the frunk, to keep cargo from blocking the lights.

Ford has guaranteed that the Mega Power Frunk is as functional and convenient as possible, sporting a rubberized floor with drainage so you can easily clean out any spills. You can even access the frunk with the FordPass app on your phone, one of six different ways to open the hood of the frunk.

The Mega Power Frunk is just one of the many, many reasons to check out the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning. It’ll be arriving in the spring of this year, and you can learn more about this game-changer by contacting the team at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois.

But those who are interested in going green and saving some green at the pump will perhaps be most thrilled to learn that the 2022 Ford Maverick offers incredible fuel economy.  

The 2022 Ford Maverick is the first-ever standard hybrid pickup in America, and it is now the most fuel-efficient hybrid pickup on the market today.

Fortunately, the Ford Maverick is also available with a 2.0-liter EcoBoost® engine that’s more powerful but still plenty efficient.

But beyond the first-ever Stealth Edition Appearance Package, 2022 should be a big year for the Ford Mustang and its fans.

Ford Confirms Bronco Raptor Debut for 2022

2022 Ford Bronco Raptor | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

Nothing screams adventure and excitement better than the Ford Bronco, and Ford recently revealed a small sneak peek into a Bronco special edition model that will elevate the excitement and enhance the adventure. Ford announced that it will unveil the Ford Bronco Raptor in 2022, taking its Built Wild™ SUV up to an entirely new level.

A short teaser video contains a close-up of the grille that contains all-caps Ford lettering, the Raptor logo, and a bright Code Orange exterior. Other than what we see in the video, the details about the exciting Bronco Raptor are sparse, but we can speculate about what the Bronco Raptor will have to offer based on the features of the Ford F-150 Raptor. Distinct features of the high-performance variant of the F-150 include a higher-output engine and FOX™ Live Valve™ shocks, so we can probably see those translated over to the Bronco Raptor as well.

Ford says it will reveal the Bronco Raptor sometime in 2022, so we don’t have too much longer to wait.

As we eagerly wait for more details about the Bronco Raptor, we have received some updates about the 2022 Ford Bronco’s color choices. As a callback to the Mallard Green paint featured on first-generation Bronco models created in the 1970s, the new 2022 Ford Bronco will be available in Eruption Green Metallic. The Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat will also be new for the 2022 model year.
