2022 Ford F-150, Mustang, and SUV Price Increases are Significant
Over at the f150gen14 forum, Sleuths discovered a Ford dealer memo outlining some significant price increases on some of Ford’s most popular cars, trucks, and SUVs. Apparently, the pricing changes went into effect yesterday, February 15, 2022. The most significant price increases come from the ubiquitous Ford F-150 pickup.
Except for the Raptor, all trim levels across the board have seen a $1500 increase in MSRP. Unfortunately for anyone who’s been on the fence about buying a Raptor, the price has now gone up by $3300. Ford also pushed the price of the 19S STX Appearance Package up by $500. They also cranked the price of the Mustang GT and GT Premium up by $825, while the Shelby GT500 increased by $1090. Some popular Mustang option packages have also increased in price.
On the SUV front, most trims of the Escape have seen price increases of up to $675 depending on trim level. The Edge has gone up by $750 across the board. Depending on trim level, Explorer prices have increased between $480 and $1100. Ford Super Duty pickup prices have gained $1000 across the board. All of these increases are before any dealer markup, which has become a popular pastime due to demand outstripping supply. Increasing prices have been something we have all dealt with for the entirety of the pandemic, and with the chip shortage, prices are likely to remain high for a while.
