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.

It’s also easy to use the vehicle-to-vehicle charging feature. Using the standard Ford Mobile Power Cord and an available power adapter, you can connect to any other electric vehicle with an SAE J1772 charge port. This includes the Mustang Mach-E, E-Transit, and EVs from other automakers.

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. The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is even more advanced with available features like Ford Intelligent Backup Power, which can charge your home during a power outage, as well as incredible power and range.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is coming to Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois, this spring. You can also order the powerful, efficient F-150 PowerBoost® Hybrid, or stop into our showroom and check out the great selection of F-150 trucks we have available today.

Ford EV Investment to Reach $22 Billion by 2025

2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

Ford is many things. It’s one of America’s leading automakers. It’s the powerhouse behind the F-series — the bestselling set of pickups in the U.S. for 44 years running. But it’s also a proponent for environmental progress and protection. That’s why the automaker recently announced a massive $22 billion investment into electric vehicles through 2025.

This news follows a 2018 announcement that Ford would spend $11 billion on developing EVs. The most prominent example of that is the first-ever Mustang Mach-E — an all-electric SUV inspired by the iconic pony car and powered entirely by a battery. The fact that Ford has doubled its EV investment within just a few years reflects its confidence in this segment.

While it’s a hybrid instead of a pure EV, the 2021 Ford F-150 and its class-exclusive 3.5-liter PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6 may be a sign of things to come.* There are rumors that the blue oval will introduce an all-electric F-150 in 2022. Considering the best-in-class combined fuel economy and impressive power offered by the PowerBoost™ engine, it seems safe to assume that whatever the F-150 EV looks like, it’ll have more than enough heft to hold its own against the competition.

While Ford has plenty of exciting innovations waiting just down the road, you can take advantage of its forward-thinking nature today by test driving a new or used model at Packey Webb Ford.
