Yet Again, No Ford F-150 Lightning Discount Available In March 2023

There are no Ford F-150 Lightning discount or incentive offers available in March 2023. In other words, The Blue Oval continues to exclude its fully electric pickup offering from any sort of deal toward a purchase or lease this month.

This month’s lack of incentives continue the trend, as FoMoCo has yet to offer a significant Ford F-150 Lightning discount so far. In fact, customers who are interested in leasing the electric pickup can expect to shell out quite a bit for it. The base Pro trim goes for $816 per month on top of the $6,603 down payment, while the range-topping Platinum trim can run as much as $1,531 per month plus the $11,408 down payment.

It’s important to note that while Ford itself isn’t offering a Ford F-150 Lightning discount this month, certain models do qualify for the $7,500 Federal EV tax credit as long as the overall price of the EV pickup does not exceed $80,000. However, non-commercial customers who choose to lease instead of purchase cannot take advantage of the aforementioned tax credit.

The lack of Ford F-150 Lightning discount offers can be at least partially attributed to hot demand and low supply of the EV pickup. However, recently, the F-150 Lightning has been subject to scrutiny, thanks to reported battery fires, which prompted FoMoCo to halt assembly at the Rogue Electric Vehicle Center. That said, now these issues have been addressed, allowing production of the F-150 Lightning to commence again.

In fact, Ford has plans to significantly ramp up the production of its most popular vehicles in order to pace demand, including the F-150 Lightning.

    Who would want this EV or any other EV for that matter when they catch fire? I wonder if Ford has seen the youtube video where they guy went to pull a 6000 pound load with his new Lightening and made it 67 miles and left on full charge. lol

      K-street Tom, a newer handle, popping in in bad faith, to give us a two-fer of scripted talking points, by hyping fire apocalypse and range anxieties.

    Just one year ago, customers could build a 2022 Ford F-150 Lighting Pro model using the Ford website staring with a base MSRP of $39,974 and it included the mobile power cord. Today, that same truck’s base is now $55,974! This $16,000 increase offers NO modifications to the 2022 model year, yet they now do not include the mobile power cord to charge it. That’s and extra $500 if you need to charge somewhere without a level 2 charger or commercial charging station.
    Greedy Ford has decided to take ALL of their customer’s $7500 Federal tax credit and more (double that amount). They held back production and increased demand to intentionally make demand much higher than supply. Now Ford Dealerships are adding $5000-$10,000 above the MSRP.
    Don’t be suckers people, don’t bite on these fake lures! Refuse to buy these EVs at these inflated prices!
    Let them sit in buid up in their factories and dealer lots.

      LoL another new K-street handle pushing the “don’t buy” scripted nonsense. I ask, who is/are the troll tag team’s benefactor/s?

    Outrageous pricing especially when the price of lithium has dropped 40%

    1. RWFA

      LoL K-streets Dim Tim dropping in with his commodity report based on recent news of battery price cuts in China.

      Lightning battery comes from Georgia.
