But it might be just as luxurious.
Truck lovers are about to receive some sticker shock when they hear about the 2021 Ford F-150. Just this week, leaked pricing information revealed that the next-generation F-150 would start at $30,635 for the base XL model. That's only a $195 increase over last year's model, but opting for one of the more potent motors, including the 2.7-liter and 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6s, 5.0-liter V8, or 3.3-liter hybrid V6, adds considerably to the price.
We knew the F-150's price would quickly balloon from its starting figure, but CarsDirect has obtained an exact figure on how expensive the truck can get. The top-line 2021 F-150 Limited 4x2 SuperCrew model will now start at $72,520, making it $3,090 more than last year's model.
The Limited trim level can get more expensive from there with 4x4 bringing the price up to $75,945. Adding the PowerBoost Hybrid powertrain, which will endow it with a 700-mile range on a single tank of gas, bumps the price up by another $2,500 to $78,445. Ford usually puts all available options into the Limited trim level, but options like a bed liner and tonneau cover should push the price over $80,000.
This luxurious truck will include amazing features such as 22-inch wheels, power running boards, heated and ventilated seats, an 18-speaker B&O audio system, a panoramic glass roof, and a 360-degree camera. A comparable GMC Sierra 1500 Denali 4x4 can exceed $70,000 while the Ram 1500 Limited can approach the $80,000 figure as well.
Prices for the other well-optioned F-150 models go as follows: $46,890 bags you the Lariat SuperCab (a $1,945 increase), $58,025 for the King Ranch SuperCrew (a $3,340 increase), and $60,805 for the Platinum SuperCrew (a $3,590 increase). With truck sales continuing to rise, it is not surprising to see an F-150 approach the $80,000 price figure, which is more than a base Lincoln Navigator. But with all of the features offered on this truck, it isn't difficult to justify the price.
We have absolutely no doubt these will fly off the showroom floor, and with the F-Series already considered America's best-selling vehicle by a big margin, we don't expect to see this change with the new generation, regardless of the price.
