The 2022 Ford F-150 Lighting electric pickup truck lights up this week's new car reviews, and establishes itself as the real deal work truck powered by batteries alone. We also spent time in the newest, hottest 2023 models, including the resurrected Acura Integra and the redesigned 2023 Land Rover Range Rover flagship. We usher the stragglers of the 2022 model year class off our review stage and test drive more electrics, pickups, and luxury cars.
Here's what moved us.
The Lightning shoots ahead of other electric pickup trucks and other F-150s as its performance, standard features, innovative packaging, and trucking capabilities earn it a high TCC Rating of 8.4 out of 10.
Last used in 2001, the Integra nameplate returns on a sleek hatchback that shares mechanicals with the Honda Civic Si.
With a TCC Rating of 7.8 out of 10, the 2023 Range Rover knows the meaning of the word "flagship."
The redesigned 2022 Mercedes-Benz C-Class offers heaps of comfort and luxury, in stark contrast to its sportier competitors. We give it a TCC Rating of 7.2 out of 10.
