2013 Ford F-150 has a starting price of $24,665! SVT Raptor will cost $44,335!

Ordering a new 2013 Ford F-150 is bit complicated with the numerous versions and options being offered. Let’s start by stating that it has a starting price of $24,665, inclusive of $995 in destination fees. This base price is $160 higher than that of a comparable 2012 F-150 XL truck. For this base price, the customer gets a base 2013 F-150 XL 4×2, which comes with a regular cab.

Notably, the XL models are the only F150 models offered in two-door form. It also features a 6.5-foot bed, a 3.7-liter V-6, and a six-speed automatic. Upgrading to a 5.0-liter V-8 costs an extra $1,000 while the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 is more expensive by $2395. Choosing the four-wheel drive means an additional $4640. The F-150 trim lineup only got modest revisions year-to-year so its pricing hasn’t changed much too. A 2013 F-150 STX starts at $25,935, which is just $175 higher than last year’s price.

A 2013 XLT has a base price of $29,680, which represents a $470 increase over a 2012 model. A 2013 F-150 FX2 costs $35,835 (higher by $760), a 2013 Lariat $36,830 (higher by $515), and a 2013 FX4 $39,765 (higher by $760). Of course, the price goes up when the customer wishes to fiddle with the engine, driveline, cab, bed, and content specifications.

It’s possible that adding an identical engine to two different trim levels will have different price premiums. The price increase for the top-trim 2013 F-150 models varies significantly. For example, the off-road ready 2013 F-150 SVT Raptor has a starting price of $44,335, which is just $365 more expensive than a 2012 model, which lacks items like HID headlamps, MyFord Touch, among others.

The 2013 F-150 King Ranch models now have a starting price of $44,510, which is higher by $690. The pricing of the 2013 F-150 Platinum models rose the highest at $47,095. The 2013 Platinum models are $1465 more expensive than comparable 2012 trucks. This indicates that a 2013 F-150 Platinum isn’t the most expensive F-150 model.

With a $50,175 price tag, the recognition goes to the new 2013 F-150 Limited. This is around $3,000 higher than a Platinum. However, it’s just approximately $150 higher than the priciest 2012 F-150, the F-150 Harley Davidson. The perks for the Limited edition include four-wheel-drive, bed liner, tonneau cover, tailgate extender, and a tailgate step.
