The majority of new automobiles are still bought off the lot at a dealership even today, but getting 

our 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning was unlike anything we'd ever done.

We made our first reservation on Ford's website and started doing what would soon become routine: waiting.

 We were requested to choose our dealer, choose our vehicle, and pay a 

nonrefundable $500 deposit for our purchase almost a year after making our reservation

We upgraded a well-equipped Lightning XLT with a bigger, 131.0-kWh Extended Range battery pack

 which is a 33.0-kWh improvement over the Regular Range battery and boosts the standard 

As a result of the large battery, the maximum range rises from 230 miles to 320 miles.
