Ford Pickups - The True Cost of Ownership
It’s one thing to provide base prices and say your vehicle costs less to own, but what’s the real cost of owning the latest Ford pickups? Well, that’s what Team Ford is here to find out. We’re breaking down the actual cost to own vehicle like the F-150 XLT, Lariat, and F-250 Super Duty. With some help from Edmunds.com, here’s how the most popular versions of these pickups stack up.
This version of the incredibly popular F-150 features plenty of standard features like the 2.7L EcoBoost engine, a rear-view camera, and a 2.3-inch productivity screen in the instrument cluster. This configuration costs $43,149, and will depreciate by approximately $15,931 over 5 years. You’re also expected to spend about $10,950 in fuel over 5 years, a testament to the fuel saving of the EcoBoost engine lineup.
Another popular version of the F-150 is the Lariat trim, which comes with extra amenities like leather seats, power-adjustable pedals, and the SYNC 3 system. The Lariat costs $55,099 with the ever-popular 5.0L V8 engine, and is expected to depreciate by $20,730 over 5 years. Fuel economy with the V8 isn’t as high, and thus you should expect to spend approximately $14,162 over the same amount of time.
The F-250 Super Duty is one of the most capable pickups available, especially when paired with the 6.7L Power Stroke diesel engine. This combination costs $61,699, and is expected to depreciate by approximately $21,790 over 5 years. Fuel economy is surprisingly stout, and over five years you can expect to spend $15,061.
So now that you know how much you’ll spend on a Ford pickup, hopefully you can make a more informed decision on which pickup suits your budget best. Our New Vehicle Inventory has plenty of new F-150 XLTs and Lariats as well as F-250s. Our Used Vehicle Inventory also has plenty of options if you don’t want to deal with depreciation.
