Ford F-150 Lightning Incentive Non-Existent During April 2023

Again, there are no Ford F-150 Lightning incentive or discount offers available from The Blue Oval in April 2023. In fact, The Blue Oval has yet to offer a significant discount or deal toward the F-150 Lightning so far.

However, 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 are unable to take advantage of the aforementioned tax credit.

The lack of Ford F-150 Lightning incentive offers can be at least partially attributed to high demand and low supply of the EV pickup. To keep pace with demand, Ford plans to ramp up production of several of its most popular models, including the F-150 Lightning, by 2024 As part of this production boost, FoMoCo has elected to transfer some workers from its Dearborn Truck plant to the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center over the summer, while also hiring 300 new employees in order to get the F-150 Lightning rolling off the assembly line at a faster pace.

The Ford F-150 Lightning has been recognized as being a good buy, as it was recently named as one of the best vehicles in terms of resale value in 2023 by Kelley Blue Book.

    With these stacking up on dealer lots, you’ve got to imagine pretty massive incentives are coming to try to move some of these trucks.

    Sadly, the lightnings battery and brakes aren’t up to snuff. It’s useless for towing, and the pathetic brakes make it scary to drive given the amount of thrust it has.

    They probably need to put 20k on these things to move them.
