The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022

The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022

If you’re in the market for an electric family car, then this is the list you need to check out

As of 2022, it’s safe to say that EVs are mainstream. With all major mass-market automakers offering multiple EVs in their portfolio, it is confusing to choose one. EVs, with their convenience and refinement, make for great family runabouts if the range isn’t a major concern, but, with a whole range of EVs to choose from, the decision-making process is getting increasingly difficult. So, here is a list of 10 EVs that we think should be on your list if you are on the lookout for an electric family car.

The Steeda F-150 Thunder Edition Brings Back Memories of the SVT Lightning

The Steeda F-150 Thunder Edition Brings Back Memories of the SVT Lightning

And it does it with 775 horses under the hood!

When we hear the words "high Performance" Ford F-150 we automatically think about the F-150 Raptor. Or, in the near future F-150 Raptor R. But there was a time when the F-150 was offered in a different high-performance guise. It was called SVT Lightning, and it was offered only for two generations, between 1993 and 2004. Now, Ford is using the Lightning nomenclature for the all-electric version of the F-150, so the name can’t be used anymore. That left Steeda with only one option for its take on a high-performance F-150 - name it the F-150 Thunder Editio because, you know, thunder comes after the lightning.

Ford's EV Lineup Will be Radically Different

Ford’s EV Lineup Will be Radically Different

CEO Jim Farley doesn’t seem all that confident

Ford CEO Jim Farley says the future EVs from the blue oval will not simply be electrified versions of current models. This means that the brand’s lineup will grow considerably, and it has even been said that fans of current models might not like the future electric models.

Everything We Know About The 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor R

Everything We Know About The 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor R

The Ford Raptor R needs to be a pitch-perfect product to go up against the Ram 1500 TRX

When the Ram TRX came out back in 2020, it was touted as a Raptor-killer. Everyone patiently waited for the third-gen Ford F-150 Raptor to arrive, which took longer than anticipated since the 14th-gen 2021 F-150 was out for quite some time. The anticipation was because the TRX had the one major thing the F-150 Raptor didn’t – a V-8 engine. When the third-gen F-150 Raptor was finally revealed, it still didn’t feature a V-8. But, little did anyone know that the Raptor with a V-8 was in the reckoning, and, in fact, the Blue Oval announced it at the very same event

As it turns out, Ford decided to branch it out as a standalone model called the F-150 Raptor R. The highlight – obviously, the V-8! It’s been about 15 months since this news broke. With the launch expected sometime in 2022, here’s all we know about the upcoming F-150 Raptor R V-8!

Chevy Won't Build A Silverado Competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor Because It's Too Hard

Chevy Won’t Build A Silverado Competitor to the Ford F-150 Raptor Because It’s Too Hard

It is just not cost-effective, but Chevy has Ford on the ropes in other areas.

Ford has offered a High-performance Raptor variant of the F-150 pickup truck to one degree or another since 2010. However, Chevrolet, or General Motors as a whole for that matter, has never had a direct rival to the Raptor. But why? General Motors has had the goal of beating Ford towards the top of its priority list since the 1960s. It is the whole reason the Camaro even exists in the first place. The main reason behind the lack of a high-performance Silverado, however, comes down to a simple business claim.

Leaked: The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Could Be Offered With Shelby GT500's 5.2-Liter Engine

Leaked: The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Could Be Offered With Shelby GT500’s 5.2-Liter Engine

With 760 horsepower under the hood, it will give the TRX a lot to think about!

We’ve known for quite some time now that “the” Ford F-150 Raptor R is coming - it has actually been delayed once already. We also know that it will be offered with a V-8 engine - as the company itself confirmed. The only problem is that the list for that V-8 engine is quite long and includes the 5.0-liter, V-8 Coyote up to the 7.3-liter, V-8 Godzilla. One thing is for sure, no matter what it was, it needed to be something powerful enough to compete with Ram TRX’s supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine. A new leak has exposed Ford’s plans for the Raptor R and they are bigger than you think.

Hoonigan Puts Two Fast & Furious Homage Cars On The Dyno To See What Power They Make

Hoonigan Puts Two Fast & Furious Homage Cars On The Dyno To See What Power They Make

The dyno battle is the precursor to an epic, Fast & Furious-inspired drag race between a Ford F-150 "Frightening" and a Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

Hoonigan shows some love for the original Fast & Furious movie by hosting a "Dyno war" at throtl’s dyno where two cars, inspired by the 2001 Fast & Furious movie, put down some epic numbers, worthy of the franchise. Hoonigan brings their Ford F-150 "Frightening", which is a parts bin special with a 2JZ swap while throtl brings out a 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, modified to look like Brian O’Conner’s original car. This one, however, is the real deal, so it should be interesting to see what power it makes. Hopefully, no "danger to manifold" signs pop up.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro

The work truck model of the F-150 Lightning comes with a maximum range of 300 miles and a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 pounds

Ford launched theF-150 Lightning EV last week and it mostly drew positive responses. The talking point was the sub-$40,000 price for the commercial variant, which would result in being cheaper than the standard F-150 after factoring in the federal tax credits and state incentives. The automaker had not revealed the specs for it then, but we do have them.

The company has coined this commercial trim as the F-150 Lightning Pro. As a sub-$40,000 EV, it looks alright on paper. But, look at it as a work truck – which it is – and you will be disappointed.

It's Imperative That Ford Launches a Ranger EV ASAP

It’s Imperative That Ford Launches a Ranger EV ASAP

Ford and Volkswagen could corner a new market with a smaller electric pickup truck

At this point, it would be a miracle if we see the Tesla Cybertruck this decade, the GMC Hummer is too expensive, GM can’t sell EVs to save its life, yet the Ford F-150 Lightning is already sold out. What does that tell you? The American public wants electric trucks, but they don’t want to pay a fortune for them and, while the Cybertruck is cool, it’s gimmicky and won’t appeal to the wide range of people that actually buy trucks. A Ford Ranger EV, however, would be more affordable than all of the aforementioned trucks, it would be usable in day-to-day life, and it would just make sense. As it turns out, it might happen sooner than we all thought.

The Ford F-150 Lightning Will Be Old By The Time The Tesla Cybertruck Arrives

The Ford F-150 Lightning Will Be Old By The Time The Tesla Cybertruck Arrives

The F-150 Lightning’s series production is all set to begin, making it the first full-size, mass-market, sub-$40,000 electric truck to hit the market

You might be wondering why a truck, that debuted almost a year ago, is being launched once again? Well, that’s because Ford showcased the truck on May 19, 2021, but the series production is all set to begin today (26th April). We pretty much know everything there is to know about the F-150 Lightning and its work-truck version, the F-150 Lightning Pro. But, this time, Ford has released the images of the truck at the company’s new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center.

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning

2022 Ford F-150 Lightning

The F-150 Lightning has everything going in its favor except for the range and towing capacity

Ford debuted the F-150 Lightning in 2021, and the electric truck checks almost all the boxes and can be considered as the first mainstream electric pickup truck for the masses. There are a lot of electric trucks launched in recent years, like the Tesla Cybertruck, the Rivian R1T, the Lordstown Endurance, the Bollinger B2, etc. But, none of them offer the all-round capability that the F-150 Lightning does.

The Ford truck comes with all the bells and whistles one can ask for, and then some more. For now, Ford has launched it in one body style and three basic trims plus an exclusive work truck model, but expect it to grow in the coming years. With all the subsidies and credits, the F-150 Lightning works out to be the cheapest full-size truck in the market today! (more on this in the ‘Pricing’ section). From the looks of it, the F-150 Lightning seems to be an all-rounder that offers good power outputs, decent range, and a lot of tech features. Do you think it will be a runaway success, or will the loyalists look around at other trucks?

Ford F-150 Lightning To Come With Tank Turn Capability!

Ford F-150 Lightning To Come With Tank Turn Capability!

Is this a result of Ford’s investment in Rivian, since the latter was the first to come up with the tank turn?

The Ford F-150 Lighting debuted in 2021, but a year later, the company is all set to officially launch it. The company had received around 200,000 reservations for the world’s best-selling truck’s electric alter-ego, but recently stopped taking any more orders for it. While the truck is sold out for the current model year is a piece of big news in itself, there’s another big news coming in, courtesy of LightningOwners.com.

As it turns out, Ford has filed a patent with the USPTO about the tank turn capability in the Ford F-150 Lightning. Looks like Ford has already started reaping the benefits of its investment in Rivian… or does this have nothing to do with it?

This 1977 Ford F-100 Pre-Runner Is An Epic, Sreet-legal Trophy Truck

Once salvaged from a roll-over accident, this 1977 Ford F-100 was turned into a V-8-powered thrill machine that loves to go airborne

AutotopiaLA is back with what is, arguably, the most outrageous build on the channel – a 1977 Ford F-100 Pre-Runner. What makes this truck special is not only the fact that it survived a roll-over accident, but also that it is a V-8-powered, street-legal trophy truck that loves to hang in the air.
