Report: The 2016 Ford F150 Limited cracks $60k, proof that car prices are getting inflated?

Ok, we get that the new Ford F150 is an impressive truck with a lot of technology, specifically with the engineering of its aluminum body.

However, it may come as a shocker for some to see the starting price of the F150 Limited, the top-spec luxury model with nearly all the bells and whistles, start at around $60,000.

A report from CarsDirect states a four-wheel drive Limited tallies up the invoice to $61,905, and that’s only $15 less than the Lincoln Navigator. Of course, you can get a Limited for cheaper, but that means forgoing the 4WD powertrain.

That said, this means the 2016 Ford F150 Limited could be the most expensive F150 ever made, and even the base Limited model with two-wheel drive is still more expensive than any GM truck in luxury form, meaning the GMC Sierra Denali, and the Chevrolet Silverado High Country, as well as the Dodge Ram 1500 Limited. The Ford starts at $52,780, while the GMC starts at $51,210, the Chevy at $49,810, and the Dodge at $51,870.

You do get a lot of kit, such as massive Limited badges, big 22-inch wheels, more distinct body work, power-extending step boards, a panoramic roof, heated and cooled and massaging seats, blind-spot monitoring and more. But is ti really all worth $62,000?

You decide, and let us know in the comments.
