Reception was lukewarm when Ford introduced the supposedly “all-new” F-150 for the 2021 model year. Despite being marketed for new features, the upcoming model was very similar to its predecessor.
However, the automaker thinks the addition of new productivity features and a new hybrid powertrain could be enough to drum up the hype and pique people’s interest.
For the first time since the model was officially revealed, Ford is releasing the official pricing schedule for the 2021 F-150. Surprisingly, the prices are not too different from the 2020 model either.
The base XL RegularCab model, which comes with a rear-wheel-drive setup and a 6.5-foot cargo box, picks up a starting price of $30,635, slightly up by $195 compared to the 2020 model. When upgraded to a four-wheel-drive, the price goes up by $4,645.
For the base XL’s SuperCab and SuperCrew variants, the starting price is at $34,720 and $38,345, respectively. The SuperCab is also up by $195 from last year’s model while the SuperCrew gets a price increase of $1,365.
Following the XL is the XLT model, which is also offered in two- and four-wheel-drive with RegularCab, SuperCab, and SuperCrew layouts. This variant gets a $290 price increase across the board, putting the rear-wheel-drive RegularCab at $36,745 complete with the 6.5-foot cargo box. The SuperCab costs $39,655, while the SuperCrew is priced $42,005.
The Lariat variant, which is only available in SuperCab and SuperCrew versions, gets a price hike of $1,945. The SuperCab costs $46,890, while the SuperCrew gets a starting price of $49,250.
For the higher trim levels—the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited—only the SuperCrew configuration is available, and they have quite a significant increase from last year’s price. The King Ranch gets a starting price of $58,025, up by $3,340 from 2020. The Platinum follows with a $3,590 increase for a starting price of $60,805, then the Limited with a $3,090 increase for a starting price of $72,520.
Customers who are looking to get the new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 hybrid powertrain known as the PowerBoost will need to shell out an additional $2,500 to $4,495.
The 2021 Ford F-150 is scheduled to arrive at dealerships sometime this fall with the PowerBoost model. The electric version, meanwhile, will be available within the next two years.
