Is Ford car insurance expensive?

With an average car insurance cost of $1,826 per year across all models, Ford car insurance is 5.5% more than the national average car insurance cost of $1,728.

When compared to it’s main U.S. competitor, Chevrolet, average Ford insurance rates cost 1.5% more per year on average.

When compared to import brands like Honda, Toyota, and Nissan, average Ford insurance rates are 9.8% more than Honda, 0.2% less than Toyota, and 2.8% more than Nissan.

Comparing Ford to brands like Honda and Toyota is not an entirely fair comparison, however. Insurance on Ford’s Super Duty line of pickup trucks is higher than average and neither Honda or Toyota manufacture a comparable truck. Plus, the Ford Mustang does not have a comparable model from either Honda or Toyota.

Nissan does have the Titan XD heavy-duty truck model and also the Z and GT-R sports car models, so a Ford to Nissan comparison is more valid.

Where can I find cheap Ford car insurance?

Ford car insurance is already pretty affordable when compared to some other brands. Plus, “cheap” is a subjective term that means something different to everyone. Without knowing your exact budget requirements, our best recommendation for finding the cheapest rate is to get several free Ford car insurance quotes.

There are some tricks to comparing car insurance quotes, however, and you’ll want to pay attention to these next four tips.

Tip #1

When comparing car insurance quotes from different companies, we cannot stress enough how important it is to make sure you are comparing apples-to-apples price quotes.

For example, if you get a price quote from Progressive and another from GEICO, but you use $500 deductibles with Progressive and $1,000 with GEICO, it’s impossible to determine which one has the cheapest price.

Most likely GEICO will have the best price just due to the fact the physical damage deductibles are higher, but that’s not guaranteed.

When you compare rates between companies, make sure your liability limits are the same on each quote (or as close as possible), and you’re using the same comprehensive and collision deductible amounts.

Tip #2

If you add other coverages like towing, rental reimbursement, or glass coverage, make sure you add the same coverages on both price quotes if possible. Some companies offer coverages that are not available with others, so it’s important to get the data as close to identical as possible.

Once you have a decent number of Ford car insurance quotes, you should be able to assess which company will have the best rate. The key here is to make sure you have enough quotes, because there could always be a company with a better rate and you just didn’t include them in your comparison.

Tip #3

If you have a policy now, just use your current policy limits and deductibles when comparing rates. That way you know if you’re getting a good deal already. Your current company could already have the cheapest Ford car insurance, but the only way to know that is to shop around!
