Ford’s entry into the world of EV trucks is already out cruising the highways and hauling across back roads. So, what prices should you expect for a Ford F-150 Lightning—new or used—in 2022?

We’ve got a rundown of prices for each trim level of the F-150 Lightning so you can compare them all in one place…

Let’s get to it!

How Much Does a Ford F-150 Lightning Cost?

We’d like to note that the Ford F-150 Lightning sold out in all four trim levels (PRO, XLT, Lariat, and Platinum) earlier this year—before production even started back in April. Early adopters who paid for a place in line should be the only ones who will be able to get their hands on a brand new F-150 Lightning.

Anyone who has followed the EV sales stories of Tesla and Rivian will find sold out preorder situations quite familiar by now. Still, knowing what new F-150 Lightning prices have been will help you understand their current used prices or give you planning insight for the next round of reservations for Ford’s electric trucks in 2023.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning price ranges from a base of $39,974 to $90,874 before you start adding options, taxes, or incentives. Let’s take a look at individual trim levels, starting with the Lightning PRO.

F-150 Lightning PRO

The base trim of the F-150 Lightning is the PRO (currently sold out for the model year). The F-150 Lightning PRO trim starts at $39,974 and starts to max out at around $46,500. The difference in price here shows up after selecting Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat paint (which is the only paint that costs extra, at $495), both towing packages ($1,950 for the Tow Technology Package, and $825 for the Max Trailer Tow Package), and the necessary destination fee (a charge of $1,695).

F-150 Lightning XLT

Ford’s F-150 Lightning XLT package costs $52,974 at the low end and reaches up to $73,000 (also sold out for the 2022 model year). This trim of the Lightning comes with more luxurious seating materials and a little more style (such as the added Gray Ion Satin Metallic grille).

You can max out the price by selecting the Extended Range Battery (a whopping $10,000 addition for about 90 extra miles of estimated range) and the 312A Equipment Group ($9,500 – a choice that’s selected along with the extended battery which includes conveniences like a heated steering wheel, powered tailgate, etc.). Rapid Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat paint ($495), both towing packages (Tow Technology Package, $1,950, and Max Trailer Tow Package, $825), an Individual Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) plus camera ($960), and, again, a destination fee ($1,695) factor in to the final max price as well.

F-150 Lightning Lariat

The third trim level, the F-150 Lightning Lariat, has a base MSRP price of $67,474 and maxes out at around $81,000. Like all the other 2022 Ford Lightning trims, the Lariat is also sold out, but it comes standard with a high quality sound system and heated / cooled leather seating.

Like the XLT, to max out the price on the F-150 Lightning Lariat you’ll need to get the larger battery size, better equipment options, max tow package (though the Tow Technology package comes standard) and trailer TPMS system, and add the destination fee ($1,795 for the Lariat). The Lariat also comes in a few additional colors; the priciest paint being Star White Metallic Tri-Coat for $795.

F-150 Lightning Platinum

The F-150 Lightning’s Platinum trim has a starting price of $90,874 and doesn’t go too much higher than about $94,000. This isn’t nearly the difference most trims have between base price and max price, but that’s part of the package: as Ford puts it on their website, you’ll choose the Platinum to “have it all” included. Most premium features, the Extended Range Battery, and Tow Packages are all included on the Platinum. The only extras left (besides accessories) are a higher-priced paint option and adding Max Recline seats for the driver and front passenger.

And All the Ford F-150 Lightning Accessories!

We won’t get into individual prices, but the Ford F-150 Lightning has a host of accessories and gear for every trim level. From toolboxes to Tonneau Covers to Polished Stainless Steel Sport Bars (and even a Sportz Truck Camping Tent), Ford offers plenty of cool and convenient items to complement your EV truck lifestyle (and up the final price of your F-150 Lightning).

How Much Does a Used F-150 Lightning Cost?

Since Ford’s EV truck just started rolling off the production line this year, can you find a used 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning? Absolutely! But like with all used vehicles and especially EVs, the cost of a used Ford Lightning can be higher than you’d expect. There are a few reasons for this situation:

Since the F-150 Lightning is so new, there aren’t that many of them out there (less than 4,000 as of earlier this July), and scarcity will keep the used price high. It’s worth noting here that the PRO trim is actually somewhat difficult to find used compared to the other trim levels.

Second, the F-150 Lightning is sold out for the remainder of the model year, used F-150 Lightnings are able to charge extra for their immediate availability. These reasons are keeping current 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning used prices averaging around $42,000-$150,000.

Let’s walk through some current pre-owned F-150 Lightning market prices for each trim level:

Ford F-150 Lightning PRO Used Prices

Even as the most inexpensive Ford F-150 Lighting, the PRO trim still sells a little above MSRP, staying around $42,000 for a used 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning PRO without additional gear and options. At the upper end, this Ford electric truck can be found listed for over $60,000.

Time and increased production will drop these prices, but likely not for at least another year. If you’re planning on buying an F-150 Lightning PRO right now, you should expect to pay at least $45,000-$55,000.

However, if you’re in the market to sell your Lightning PRO, now is a great time to see a 15-20% over your original Ford EV truck price. Check out our Instant Cash Offer page and see what one of our trusted EV dealerships will offer for your F-150 Lightning PRO today.

Ford F-150 Lightning XLT Used Prices

Very few Lightning XLTs have been produced so far; consequently, even fewer of those are for sale as used vehicles. For the few out there, used Ford F-150 Lightning XLT prices have been hovering between $55,000 and $74,000. Assuming we can predict average prices based on the used price of the Lariat and Platinum (above MSRP), the average price of a used 2022 Ford Lightning XLT is currently around $59,000-$65,000. This mostly applies to an XLT that’s not fully loaded.

Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat Used Prices

With the Ford F-150 Lightning Lariat currently being produced in larger numbers than the PRO or the XLT, you can find quite a few used Lightning Lariats for sale. While prices range widely between $75,000 and a whopping $150,000, the Lariat is averaging about $120,000. You can expect to pay a few thousand more or less than that number depending on how many extra options were added (see the MSRP price discussion above for a few examples).

Ford F-150 Lightning Platinum Used Prices

As the highest trim level of the F-150 Lightning, a used F-150 Lightning Platinum sells for a premium price of $95,000-$155,000. Expect to pay an average of about $135,000 for a used F-150 Lightning Platinum (again, more or less depending on options, etc).

EV Incentives and Tax Breaks

Currently, the 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning lineup is eligible for a federal income tax credit of up to $7,500. The credit applies up to the amount you owe on one tax return. Ford’s ability to ramp up its production means that the Lightning may not qualify for the EV credit for more than a few years (the credit is no longer offered after 200,000 EV and PHEV vehicles have been sold by a given automaker).

Please note: only new EV purchases are eligible for the federal income tax credit; it’s not applicable for a pre-owned Ford F-150 Lightning. However, state-level tax breaks and EV incentives are possible for Ford’s electric pickup, and some credits may apply when you buy a used Ford EV or set up a charging system at home.

For example, the California Air Resources Board in California offers a rebate of $750 for a new EV purchase or lease. In Texas, up to $2,500 in rebates from the Texas Commision on Environmental Quality may be available for your purchase or lease of a new Ford truck EV.

You can find further information on EV incentives and laws for your state through the Alternative Fuels Data Center run by the US Department of Energy.

Where Can I Find a Used Ford F-150 Lightning for Sale?

If you’re checking out your options for a used F-150 Lightning, there’s bad news and good news. First, the bad news:

Let’s face it, Ford is not exclusively an electric pickup truck company. Most sites that advertise used Ford EVs stick the EVs right in with the ICE cars from the same manufacturer. Trying to find a 2022 Ford Lightning price on a traditional used car site? Great, but you’ll get listings for the old ICE version of the Lightning, too (and likely a host of other ICE trucks that you’ll have to wade through).

And most of the time you can forget having battery sizes and other electric truck related options easily available in the listing filter.

But that does bring us to the good news:

An EV-focused, user-friendly marketplace for used Ford electric trucks really does exist.
