The 2022 Ford F-150 is getting more expensive for what seems like the millionth time. As we approach the end of the year, automakers announce price hikes on just about every vehicle. Usually, it’s because the vehicle is getting new features or packages for the new model year. This price jump is a little larger than the typical F-150 increase, according to Cars Direct. However, the price increases don’t apply to every F-150 model, only a single one. Which trim level is getting more expensive, and what’s the cause?
The 2022 Ford F-150 Limited is getting more expensive
The most expensive version of the F-150 is becoming even more costly. As the best-selling truck in America for over 40 years, the F-150 has to have its options. Though the less expensive models are a bit more popular due to affordability, the Limited trim is luxurious and capable. The Limited model will now reach even further above the other model’s price points.
Starting with the 2022 model year, the Ford F-150 Limited will have a starting price of $75,150 for the base two-wheel-drive version. Adding four-wheel drive jumps it up a bit to $78,575 without any other extras. This price is from a change of $2,280 more from the previous model year. A well-equipped Limited F-150 can easily eclipse $80,000 or more.
Are other F-150 models getting more expensive?
The Limited trim is already priced very high, so it won’t affect that many people. But are the less expensive F-150 trim levels also getting a price increase? The cheapest of the bunch is the XL model which will start at $31,335 with destination charges. That’s only a $350 jump from the previous model year.
Most other models are only seeing a jump of $215 from 2021 to 2022. That’s good news for buyers, as this kind of small increase won’t have a noticeable effect on monthly payments. The most affordable F-150 models will still be affordable for 2022.
What makes the Ford F-150 Limited worth a $2,280 price jump?
The details of what standard features are new for this model year have yet to be announced. The F-150 Limited is the top trim, so it already includes basically everything the other models have. This includes a 360-degree camera package, 900A standard, a trailer tow package, and more. The current engine offerings are the same across the board for F-150 models, either a hybrid or non-hybrid 3.5-liter V6.
Making the F-150 Limited worth another $2,000 won’t take much for the automaker. It could be something as simple as increased quality of materials used on the interior. The F-150 Limited already contains so many bells and whistles as standard equipment, it’s difficult to figure out what could be added.
The 2022 Ford F-150 is getting more expensive for the new model year, according to Cars Direct. Each trim level is only getting a minuscule increase, but the most luxurious Limited model gets quite the jump. An already well-equipped model will surely receive some new standard equipment with this price increase. Ready your wallets, because the Ford F-150 Limited with four-wheel drive and optional equipment is easily going to reach $80,000 or more.
