Here’s how much you can spend on 8 popular mainstream cars
In the United States, you are no more mainstream than a Ford F-150 truck. The F-Series is still (yawn) America’s best-selling vehicle, and you can pretty much spend as much as you want on one. The 2021 F-150 currently starts at $ 29,290 excluding destination fees, but you get commercial specs and most base models.
At the top of the pile is the cowboy limo spec, the Limited Trim, for a whopping $ 73,105. It comes with the Supercrew cabin, an EcoBoost V6, Ford’s excellent Pro Power Onboard system, a leather bucket seat interior, a Bang and Olufsen audio system and almost every tech Ford can offer it. This includes the Pro Trailer Backup Assistant, on-board scales and smart hitch, the 360-degree camera set, and everything else that is useful for someone who uses a truck. The maximum you can go for the paint is $ 595, but for $ 1,900 you can upgrade the V6 to be a fully hybrid drivetrain. We also added the retractable tonneau pickup box cover for $ 1,695, an indoor worksurface for $ 165, a bed slide for $ 1,649 and fender flares for $ 499, but there are no not much to add that you need. We left things like a $ 2,000 tent off the options list and came out at just over $ 80,000 including destination. That’s crazy money for an F-150, but a hell of a lot.
