Ford has set the truck market on fire when it announced that it would be making the body of its new F-150, one of the top selling vehicles in the US, completely out of aluminum. The move was done to shed weight from the truck and increase performance and fuel economy. One of the questions that has remained about the truck is exactly how much it will cost.
That question has been answered with Ford unveiling the pricing for the truck this week. As you might expect, the price has increased with the base model F-150 XL starting at $26,615. The 2015 F-50 XLT will start at $31,890, both those base model trucks get $400 price increases.
Where the big price increases come in is with the higher-end models of the new F-150. The 2015 F-150 Lariat increases $900 to $39,880. Pricing for the King Ranch will go up $3615 to start at $49,460. Platinum top of the line models will start at $52,155, an increase of $3,055 compared to 2014 models.
