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.
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.
Ford Motor Co. is celebrating the launch of the latest iteration of the Ford F-150 pickup truck together with the agricultural professionals and future leaders. Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas, quipped that the 2013 F-150 represents the carmaker’s commitment to continuously enhance its trucks with new features and capabilities, thereby enabling their owners to become more productive.
The 2013 version of the best-selling pickup truck in America now features a new front end that could be specified with high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps. Advanced technologies -- like MyFord Touch with voice-activated driver controls – are now offered on the 2013 Ford F-150.
Doug Scott, Ford Truck group marketing manager and FFA sponsor board member, remarked that Ford considers farm families as an important part of its F-Series constituency. He remarked that farm families – who typically love to multi-task – consider a Ford pickup not just as a family transportation but also as an aid to their livelihood, thanks to its rugged capability and reliability. He said that FFA takes delight in collaborating with Ford in unveiling the new F-150 models.
As developed, the 2013 Ford F-150 aims to make itself more appealing by injecting new advanced technologies and refreshing its design, on top of its reputation the most capable and fuel-efficient light-duty pickup. Moreover, for the 2013 model year, the Ford F-150 is now available as a Limited luxury model. Available technologies are now expanded, including a 6.2-liter V8 powerplant, an EcoBoost engine, electronic-locking rear axle and Hill Descent Control.
