The base Ford F-150 Lightning Pro has just gotten more expensive. Again. In August, Ford announced it would increase the base Lightning price by $7,100 to raise the cost to $48,769. Now Automotive News reports that the model will see another price hike.
The base 2023 F-150 Lightning Pro starts at $53,769 with a destination cost of $1,795 included. That’s an increase of $5,000 from the price just announced in August. According to a statement shared with Automotive News, “ongoing supply chain constraints and rising material costs” is the latest increase factor. No other trim has experienced a price spike yet.
That said, the F-150 Lightning is still the most affordable electric truck on the market. The Rivian R1T costs $68,575 out of the box and the GMC Hummer EV starts at $86,645 for 2023 – but even the Hummer saw an overall $6,250 increase to its price earlier this year. We’re still waiting for the Tesla Cybertruck and Chevrolet Silverado EV to go on sale.
The Lightning Pro base also gets a little extra range for 2023, increasing from 230 miles (370 kilometers) last year to 240 miles (386 kilometers) this year. This electric truck also has several new color options, such as Avalanche Gray and Azure Gray metallic. Although, Atlas Blue, Ice Blue Silver, and Smoked Quartz Metallic have been discontinued.
Ford issued the following statement to: Motor1.com regarding increase:
“Ford is adjusting MSRP on the 2023 F-150 Lightning Pro due to ongoing supply chain constraints, rising material costs and other market factors. We will continue to monitor prices throughout the model year. Current retail order holders awaiting delivery are not affected by this .adjustment. Current commercial and government customers with scheduled orders are also not affected by this adjustment.”
