F-150 Lightning price cuts

Ford has announced significant price reductions for its F-150 Lightning lineup. Following four consecutive price increases, the electric truck will now start at $51,990, marking a reduction of $9,979 from the previous hike. However, it remains $10,321 more expensive compared to its initial production in April 2022.

The starting price applies to the F-150 Lightning Pro, which is primarily intended for commercial use. The Pro version, equipped with a Standard Range battery providing an estimated 240 miles of range, is currently sold out for retail customers for the remainder of the 2023 model year, according to a Ford spokesperson.

Retail customers are now required to opt for the F-150 Lightning XLT, starting at $56,990, a reduction of $9,479 from its previous price. This configuration includes the 240-mile Standard Range battery. Additionally, an Extended Range battery offering 320 miles of range is available for an additional $15,000, bringing the base price to $71,990. This represents a price reduction of $8,879 compared to before the recent announcement.

Moving up the range, the Lariat variant with the Standard Range battery starts at $71,990, while the Lariat Extended Range is priced at $79,490. Both configurations have seen reductions of $6,979 and $8,479, respectively. The top-of-the-line Platinum model now starts at $93,990, a reduction of $6,079.

All prices mentioned include a $1,995 destination charge, and most F-150 Lightning models are eligible for potential Inflation Reduction Act tax credits worth $7,500, as per Ford.

The updated pricing is immediately effective for deliveries starting from today. Customers who have already placed orders and are awaiting their trucks will receive the new pricing.

Ford attributed the latest price reductions to improved economies of scale at its Rouge plant in Dearborn, Michigan, where the trucks are manufactured. The plant is currently closed for final upgrades and is expected to reopen in the fall with a targeted annual production rate of 150,000 trucks.

Additionally, Ford cited improved battery raw material costs as contributing to the price cuts. Marin Gjaja, Chief Customer Officer of Ford Model E, stated that the company has been working behind the scenes to enhance accessibility and affordability, aiming to lower prices for customers and reduce wait times for the F-150 Lightning.
