Prices went up 1-7% depending on the trim level you look at. The base model saw a $395 increase while the Platinum model saw an increase of $3,055.Thought it would be cheaper to cast. How much did Ford hike up the price of the F-150 when the switch happened?
Ford invested a huge amount of money moving to a lightweight aluminum body for the 2015 Ford F-150. This contributed to significant fuel economy gains. Unfortunately, the truck became available just as gas prices were crashing toward the $2/gallon level.
The 2015 Ford F-150 remains a very impressive truck and Ford has achieved big gains in its average transaction price this year, offsetting the higher cost of building the new model. That said, the company appears to have missed out on sales growth opportunities. Some buyers don't seem to be willing to pay for the 2015 F-150's improvements, perhaps because fuel prices have fallen significantly in the past year.
.The Wrangler JL just got a price bump of $750 and I blame it on the new steel/aluminium tariff...The base JL's MSRP went from $26,995 to $27,495 with a $500 increase and destination charge is now $250 higher at $1,445. This increase applies all across the Wrangler board.
Some may not think that's a large increase but it's still a stab in the wallet and that's money you could have allocated to mods.
