Ford is once again taking orders for the F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck, except this time the automaker is also no longer only accepting orders from customers who had previously made a reservation.
As of Tuesday anyone can place an order for a 2023 F-150 Lightning, however most of the variants do not cost the same since the last time they were available, with prices either being raised or lowered depending on the model.
Only one variant saw a price drop, the F-150 Lightning XLT with Extended Range battery which is now $2,100 cheaper, starting at $78,874USD. This price drops allows the XLT long-range model to be eligible for up to $7,500 in US tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act, as the starting MSRP falls under the $80,000 price cap.
Two other variants saw $1,000 price increases, the F-150 Lightning XLT Standard Range, now starting at $64,474, and the F-150 Lightning Lariat with Standard Range battery which now starts at $76,974. Both variants are still eligible for the tax credit.
Meanwhile, two variants saw no price changes, the Lariat Extended Range ($85,794) and the top-of-the-line Platinum ($98,074). Both variants do not qualify for the $7,500 tax credit.
The F-150 Lightning Pro, the cheapest model at $59,794 (nearly $20,000 more than when it first debuted), is still unavailable to order and appears to be sold out for the 2023 model year.
