Lightning Markups to $ 150,000 as Dealers Gouge

We told you this would happen. Now, with 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning EV trucks sold out, it’s time to order a 2023 model before it gets sold out, too. So how are some dealers helping buyers do that? By attaching huge markups over MSRP. Some have, so far, hit the $ 150,000 mark. Where will it stop?

We do not know the answer to that. What we do know is that reportedly, Ford is fining dealers up to $ 25,000 for going against Ford’s edict, which is that it wants all dealers to sell Lightnings for MSRP. But with markups showing prices of $ 150,000 and maybe more, the profit is more than enough to cover the fine, and still walk away with $ 20,000 to $ 40,000 more.
