Since its launch, the Ford F-150 Lightning has received multiple rounds of price increases amid strong demand and rising commodities prices, and that trend continued back in late March, when 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning order banks reopened. At that time, prices for the work-oriented Pro, standard range Lariat, and range-topping Platinum models increased yet again, due to “current material costs, market factors, and supply chain constraints.” Most notably, the Pro’s latest price increase meant that it was a whopping 50 percent more expensive than when it launched, in fact. However, as production continues to ramp up, the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning lineup has received yet another revised round of pricing.
|2023 Ford F-150 Lightning Price – May 9th, 2023||2023 Ford F-150 Lightning Price – March 30th, 2023||+ / – December 15 Price|
|XLT High Extended Range||$78,874||$80,974||$-2100|
|Lariat Extended Range||$85,974||$85,974||$0|
Once again, these price changes are a bit uneven, with the XLT receiving a $1,000 increase to $64,474, while the Lariat standard range also gets another $1,000 jump to an MSRP of $76,974. However, the XLT High is now $2,100 cheaper with a starting price of $78,874, while the Platinum is also $1,200 less expensive at $97,674. Most notably, the price drop for the XLT High model makes it eligible for the federal tax credit, thanks to the fact that it now falls below the $80k mark.
Meanwhile, Ford continues to work to increase F-150 Lightning production by moving 800 workers from the Dearborn Truck plant to the Rouge Electric Vehicle Center while also hiring 300 new employees for the latter plant. Order banks for the 2023 Ford F-150 Lightning just reopened this week, and now, new customers can place an order for the EV pickup without any sort of prior reservation.

The XLT ER pricing is misleading. If you try to build an XLT with extended range battery, you’re forced to get the non-optional $4000 312A equipment package, which brings the total cost over $80k, making it ineligible for the tax credit.
They are still way overpriced at this point by over $30k. Just not worth the price. Even the ICE F150a are ridiculously priced now. How can people afford these things
All the automotive news articles are talking about how Americans aren’t buying EVs and how most don’t plan to ever buy one. Farley has completely destroyed a once great company. No surprise Ford was ranked the least reliable manufacturer in America.
welp not getting one anytime soon. wtf are they thinking with these prices?!
Reserved one but won’t buy it any time soon. Ridiculous price!!!
No one in right mind would pay for it.
