A new wave of electric vehicles is coming to the streets of Buena Park, Long Beach, and Orange County, and they’re ready to change the way you think about driving a truck. Models like the Ford F-150 Lightning and the GMC Hummer EV are paving the way for fully electric pickups. So, it’s time to choose which fuel-free beast will be your new companion on and off the roads.
To give you the information you need to make an informed decision, the team at Norm Reeves Ford Superstore has created this 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning vs. GMC Hummer EV comparison. In which one will you soon be ruling the roadways? Let’s dive in and find out.
In both the Ford F-150 Lightning and GMC Hummer EV, you won’t have to sacrifice extreme strength and power for a fuel-free drive. These two pickup trucks pack quite a punch under their hoods while giving you an estimated driving range of over 300 miles on a full charge when properly configured.
That’s not all that’s impressive, though. These pickups were engineered to tow and haul with the best of them. When properly equipped, the 2022 F-150 Lightning boasts a maximum towing capacity of up to 10,000 pounds as well as a maximum payload of 2,000 pounds.
Though quite powerful, the 2022 GMC Hummer EV pickup doesn’t quite compare. When properly equipped, it maxes out at a 7,500-pound towing capacity and a payload capacity of only 1,300 pounds. If you’re looking to tow in your electric truck, the F-150 Lightning is the way to go.
Innovation isn’t just found under the hoods of these groundbreaking trucks. Each boasts a decked-out cabin that is filled with the newest multimedia technology, allowing you to stay connected while adventuring behind the wheel.
The 2022 F-150 Lightning sports a massive 12-inch touchscreen on its dashboard, which keeps you in touch with the SYNC® 4 system. This includes Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and built-in navigation to keep you on track. You can also upgrade to the available 15.5-inch SYNC® 4A touchscreen system that adds Enhanced Voice Recognition.
The GMC Hummer EV truck offers similar features, but they might not be as exciting to access. Its touchscreen maxes out at 13.4 inches. Though large, it’s hard to live up to the innovative system that Ford is known for.
Another tech perk you’ll find in the Lightning is the available B&O® Unleashed Sound System by Bang & Olufsen®. This puts 18 speakers, a subwoofer, and HD Radio™ in your cabin for the ultimate listening experience. The available 14-speaker sound system in the Hummer EV proves to be less impressive in comparison.
With two rows of seats and room for five passengers, both of these fully electric pickups are spacious and comfortable. However, if you’re planning on traveling with friends and family, they might be more comfortable in the Ford F-150 Lightning. With ample space in the back row, you can bring along your loved ones easily.
