Brace your wallet. Price increases for the Ford F-150 are incoming! Some 2022 Ford F-150 models are going up in price by thousands of dollars. The truck configurator is live and ready to take your cash if you want a brand new ride.
How much does the 2022 Ford F-150 cost?
You can get started in a 2022 Ford F-150 for about $29,990. This is the MSRP for the entry-level model, and it’s the only option without an insane price increase. It costs about $1,050 more than the 2021 base model.
Yes, we realize that an increase of over $1,000 is a lot, but not compared to how much extra other trim levels cost. For example, the F-150 XLT now starts at $39,130 compared to $35,400 for the 2021 model. That’s a $3,730 increase.
According to Muscle Cars and Trucks, the 2022 Lariat has an MSRP of $48,140, which is a $3,095 price hike. The Tremor is up in price by about $2,730 with a starting price of $52,235. The F-150 King Ranch starts at $58,610 with its $2,595 increase.
Want some luxury? The Ford F-150 Platinum starts at $61,390 with a $2,595 increase. Also, the top-of-the-line F-150 Limited now begins at $75,835, which is a $2,730 increase over the 2021 model. Last but not least, the Ford F-150 Raptor has an MSRP of $68,674, which is a $4,529 increase.
What’s new for the 2022 F-150?
Let’s check out what new features the 2022 Ford F-150 has. You should get extra goodies for spending thousands more, right? Supply chain issues, the semiconductor chip shortage, and the ongoing pandemic may have impacted prices.
Some features like the Onboard Scales, Smart Hitch, BlueCruise, and continuously controlled damping were supposed to be available with the launch of the 2021 model. But they arrive later in the year and are now offered with the 2022 models.
The 2022 F-150 isn’t gaining any exterior changes but has some visual upgrades. The new Atlas Blue color looks great. But the Guard, Lead Foot, and Kodiak Brown shades bit the dust.
You can enter the dark side with the STX Black Appearance Package for the XL models. The XLT Black Appearance Package is now optional for the XLT 301A, 302A Super Cab, and Super Crew models.
Plus, the Lariat Black Appearance Package is available for the 502A trims. Also, a Platinum Black Appearance package should debut soon.
Ford will introduce a Bed Utility Package for the XL, XLT, Lariat King Ranch, Platinum, and Tremor trims too.
Does the 2022 F-150 have more power?
Sort of. The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning serves up 426 hp and 775 lb-ft of torque with the standard-range battery. The extended-range battery increases the power to 563 hp. Also, the Lightning has an MSRP of $39,974.
The 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine with 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque was dropped. You can still opt for the 3.3-liter V6 engine with 290 hp, 325-hp 2.7-liter V6, 3.5-liter V6 with 400 hp, or 5.0-liter V8 engine with 400 hp.
Hopefully, production delays won’t slam the 2022 models as hard as the 2021 models. Ford was attempting to gain more chips with the help of GlobalFoundries Inc. We will keep an eye on Ford for more truck updates.
