Ford confirms pricing and specs for F-150

Ford Australia has confirmed pricing and specifications for the highly anticipated F-150, with the American icon set to arrive in showrooms later this year. Kicking off from $106,950 plus on-roads, four variants will be on offer.

Backed by a 5-year unlimited kilometre warranty, customers will be able to take ownership of either an XLT or LARIAT, in short or long wheelbase. The reintroduction of F-Series comes after significant demand from Aussies.

Following extensive re-engineering work by Ford Australia and RMA Automotive, both the XLT and LARIAT F-150 will feature the top-selling 3.5-litre EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 petrol engine, coupled with 10-speed automatic transmission in 4×4 Crew Cab configuration.

With 298kW and 678Nm across the range, the F-150 blends effortless torque across its rev range by using clever technology. This includes Ford’s port-fuel and direct-injection (PFDI) system, which uses a pair of injectors per cylinder.

Twin-intercooled turbochargers offer on-demand power while minimising lag, which is especially important when towing; with all F-150 models in Australia capable of hauling 4.5-tonnes (braked).

The XLT is the perfect accompaniment for customers wanting compelling capability from their pick-up, paired with no-nonsense ruggedness. It features 20-inch six-spoke machined-aluminium wheels, and chrome front and rear bumpers.

Black platform running boards, a tailgate with flexible step and work surface and a Tough Bed spray-in bedliner are also included.

The F-150 XLT also features underbody skid plates, 12-way power (including lumbar) driver cloth seat and 10-way power (including lumbar) front passenger cloth seat, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, FordPass Connect and dual zone auto climate control.

Power adjustable foot pedals, a rear view camera and rear parking sensors, Ford pro-trailer back-up assist and pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking also feature, along with cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping aid and a driver alert system.

The SWB price is as above, while the LWB hits the tarmac at $107,945 plus on-roads.

As the flagship of the Australian range, the F-150 LARIAT provides customers advanced levels of luxury alongside its uncompromised ability as a vehicle perfectly tailored to both work and play.

Ford’s pinnacle of full-size pick-ups in Australia boasts additional features over and above the XLT variant, including premium mesh insert grille with chrome surround, and a chrome appearance package.

The latter includes mirror scalps, door handles, belt mouldings, tow hooks and running boards, while there’s also a powered twin-panel moonroof and LED headlights, fog lights and taillamps.

It also grabs leather-accented seats, that are heated and cooled up front and heated in the rear, with both front seats featuring 12-way power adjustment (including lumbar). There’s a floor mounted shifter, and dual 12.0-inch infotainment and instrument screens.

A B&O unleashed sound system with 18 speakers is joined by a 360-degree camera, intelligent adaptive cruise control with stop-go, lane centring, speed sign recognition, evasive steering assist, intersection assist and wireless phone charging.

The F-150 LARIAT SWB is $139,950 and its LWB sibling is $140,945 – both plus on-roads. Earlier this month, the first of the F-150s that will be re-manufactured in Australia rolled off the production line in Dearborn, and are now en-route.

The 2023 Ford F-150 is now available for order, with deliveries kicking off in Q3. You can find out more on the Ford Australia website, and if you’re keen on one and need finance, visit CreditOne.
