Ford F-150 Pricing and Specs Confirmed for Australia

While the Ford Ranger has dominated headlines in the truck world since it was unveiled last year, Ford has also successfully brought the full-size F-150 to the Australian market this year. Now, Ford Australia has confirmed pricing for the F-150 as follows.

  • F-150 XLT SWB from $106,950 AUD before on-road costs.
  • F-150 XLT LWB from $107,945 AUD before on-road costs.
  • F-150 LARIAT SWB from $139,950 AUD before on-road costs.
  • F-150 LARIAT LWB from $140,945 AUD before on-road costs.

All four models are available to order now through the Ford Australia dealers across the country and include a five-year factory-backed warranty. First deliveries are projected to begin by the end of 2023.

Why the Ford F-150 is Coming to Australia

You see, while many Aussies are struggling to break into the housing market, others are struggling to find a truck big enough to tow their toys around on weekends. Space, power, and towing capacities on most dual-cab utes on the market are only adequate for your average family, and if you’re planning to drop everything and tour the country you’ll want something bigger.

It’s all about priorities and ‘big trucks’ – don’t laugh at us here American readers – such as the Ram 1500 are selling like hotcakes across the country.

Where is the Ford F-150 Being Made in Australia?

To bring the project to fruition, Ford Australia has partnered with RMA Automotive to locally remanufacture America’s best-selling vehicle on Aussie shores. All vehicles will meet all applicable Australian Design Rules and safety regulations, come with the full unlimited-kilometre 5-year factory warranty, and will be available alongside the full Ford vehicle range throughout Ford’s nationwide dealer network.

It’s unclear why the brand couldn’t justify a factory right-hand-drive conversion (like they do with the Mustang), however, projected sales figures might tell the story on that end.

Australia will see two variants of the F-150 in Lariat and XLT offered exclusively with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine and 10-speed transmission, delivering 298Kw of power and 678Nm of torque. Ford made it known that this is their most popular engine option overseas, however, it also conveniently shares a platform with the upcoming Ranger Raptor, clearly making the case for logistics reasons.

Towing will be carried across at 4.5 tonnes (the same as Ram 1500).

When we began looking at F-150 for an Australian return, there was one engine that stood out for us – the 3.5L EcoBoost, which gives F-150 immense power and torque, more than many of its V8 competitors,” said Natalie Manariti, Ford Australia’s Global Trucks Enterprise Product Line Manager.

“The F-150 is part of a new wave of Ford vehicles for our Australian customers. We’re listening to customers and breaking down barriers to give them what they want – the best of our global line-up. There’s more where F-150 came from,” said Birkic.

As for the chance of future overseas models making their way to Australian dealers in the future? It certainly sounds like Ford Australia isn’t ruling anything out. Mustang Mach E anyone? Yes, please.
