The 2021 Ford F-150 is definitely upon us, and it has come with a lot of new things, including several smart features in the full-size truck’s cabin – things we expect from a next-gen model. That said, its price is a bit of a question mark; only estimates were released at launch, ranging from $ 30,000 to $ 75,000.
Luckily, we now have the exact price of America’s best-selling truck, which was discovered through CarsDirect’s dealer ordering guides. For what it’s worth, the price looks promising.
According to the report, the 2021 F-150 will start at $ 30,635 for the regular-cab XL 4×2. That includes destination and handling, making the new base F-150 just $ 195 more expensive than its predecessor.
The F-150 will be placed between its rivals with this price. The entry-level Chevy Silverado 4×2 regular cab work truck starts at $ 30,095, while the Ram 1500 Tradesman 4×2 Quad Cab starts at $ 33,840.
What’s interesting is how much you need to add if you go for a bit of electrification with your 2021 F-150. The hybrid powertrain is available across the lineup from XL to Limited, but the price will change with the internal combustion engine it comes with.
If you go for the entry-level 3.3-liter V6, the hybrid setup will cost an additional $ 4,495, making the F-150 Hybrid’s starting price $ 35,130. Going for the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 will only charge an additional $ 3,300, while the 5.0L V8 or 3.5L EcoBoost V6 will earn a premium of $ 2,500.
CarsDirect’s analysis also reveals that those who opt for the more capable F-150 will have to pay more than those who opt for the lower versions. Although the exact figures were not disclosed by the publication.
