Like a majority of vehicles, the 2022 Ford F-250 and other Super Duty models are moving on up, moving on up in price. This is the second price increase for the 2022 Ford F-250 in the past couple of months.
How much does the 2022 Ford F-250 cost?
You can get started in a 2022 Ford F-250 for about $36,645. This price includes a $1,695 destination fee. Back in June, Ford raised the price by $250. Now due to competitive pricing action, the price has increased by another $250.
The F-350 and F-450 Super Duty trucks received a $250 price increase too. The F-150 starts at about $38,160, and the F-450 begins at around $58,825. The Ford F-150 hasn’t gone up in price yet.
But in June, the EcoSport received a $400 increase, the price of the Edge went up by $500, two Bronco Sport models increased by $450, and the Expedition is now $600 more expensive. We aren’t done yet either! The Mustang Mach 1 increased by $680, and the Ford Escape S received a $670 price increase.
Ford eliminated a majority of dealer rebate programs in favor of a trade-in assistance program too. It provides additional cash to buyers with vehicles to trade in and helps dealerships add inventory to empty lots.
Why are prices increasing?
The 2022 Ford F-250 Super Duty isn’t alone as it keeps getting more expensive. Vehicles are going up in price due to limited quantities. Production is primarily limited due to the ongoing global semiconductor chip shortage.
Ford may lose $2.5 billion this year as prices continue to increase. Some factories in the United States, Mexico, and Canada have been temporarily shut down to halt production until more computer chips arrive.
Ford was allocating chips to the most popular vehicles. Then it switched to building vehicles without the chips and storing them until the chips can be added later. F-150 models can be seen from space as they wait for chips.
Is the F-250 worth the price increase?
The 2022 Ford F-250 has only increased in price by about $500 so far. This mark-up isn’t too bad if you need a reliable Super Duty option, especially if there is inventory available to take advantage of.
For 2022, the F-250, F-350, and F-450 received an interior refresh. Tech upgrades include a 12.0-inch touchscreen with Ford Sync 4 software and Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Lariat Sport appearance package adds body-colored exterior mirrors, bumpers, and a matching grille. You also get black running boards and chrome exhaust tips. New colors include Baja, Navy Pier, and Light Slate.
With the standard 6.2-liter V8, you get 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Upgrading to the 7.3-liter V8 provides 430 hp and 475 lb-ft of torque. The Power Stroke diesel 6.7-liter V8 generates 475 hp and 1050 lb-ft of torque.
When properly equipped, the F-250 Super Duty can tow up to 19,000 lbs. Fifth-wheel trailers increase its capacity up to 26,500 lbs, and gooseneck trailers allow you to tow up to 31,200 lbs. So, if you need a lot of truck, go for it. It’s only a $500 increase with a refreshed interior.
