The 2017 Ford F-150 crew cab 4×4 Limited edition truck has an M.S.R.P of precisely $67,000. A base F-150 regular cab XL model with 2WD starts out at $27,110. What is the configuration and options price breakdown that takes the small base truck all the way up to luxury truck status?
If you take the two-door regular cab F-150 as the baseline, you would have to pay and additional $3,950 for an extended cab with “clam-shell” doors. Ford calls this the Super Cab. If you are stepping up from a regular cab to a crew cab (aka. Super Crew), then it requires an additional $6,540. These are big jumps in price, but building the larger cabs add much more complexity.
I would recommend the crew cab for those with families. The four full-size doors are much more convenient than the “clam-shell” design of the extended cab.
The base engine is the naturally aspirated 3.5L V6.
Next step is the 2.7L EcoBoost V6, and it adds $995 to the bottom line. I think this is a great and affordable engine option if you are not loading the truck with every option. We tested this engine in a 2015 Super Cab F-150, and the truck ran the quickest 0-60 MPH run for that year and performed great on the Ike Gauntlet – world’s toughest towing test.
The 5.0L “Coyote” V8 is next at $1,795. If I was buying an F-150 right now, I would choose the V8. This engine is well-matched to the truck. It’s about as efficient as the 3.5L twin-turbo V6, and it has the V8 sound when you step on it. We tested the 2016 F-150 V8 and it won the 2016 Gold Hitch Award for towing.
Finally, there is the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. This one costs $2,895 more than the base engine. For 2017, this is the only engine option that is paired to the new 10-speed automatic transmission. All other engines for 2017 are mated to the 6-speed auto.
If you are looking for a 4×4 system in the F-150, it adds $3,400 to the final price.
If you start with the base XL-grade truck at about $27,000 and configure it as a crew cab 4×4 with a 3.5L EcoBoost V6, then you are looking at around $40,000 MSRP. There are still $27K of equipment you can to the truck.
The Limited is the highest level trim package for the F-150. This includes a host of driver aide features: adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning with assist, 360-degree camera views, SYNC3 infotainment system with navigation, blind spot monitoring, and trailer backup assist. Luxury features include soft leather seats (front seats are heated/cooled and include massage), panoramic sunroof, wood trim, and more.
The Limited model also rides on 22-inch rims, LED headlights, and retractable side steps.
Do all these options and features add up to $67,000? The final answer will be determined by how many Limited F-150s Ford sells.
