The chart below shows how average Ford F-150 car insurance rates vary based on the age of the driver and the policy deductibles. With all other factors staying constant, car insurance rates drop as driver age increases up to about age 65, at which point rates begin to increase. A policy with high deductibles will cost less than a comparable policy with a lower deductible option.
|Driver Age||Deductible||Annual Cost||Monthly Cost|
The average insurance cost we use for our analysis is a 40-year-old driver with $500 deductibles, which clocks in at $1,794 per year. Drivers see significant savings as they age from 20 to 30, about $1,350 difference in those ten years.
After the age of 30, rates will continue to fall at a slower pace unless an insurability factor changes. For example, a DUI or even a couple of speeding tickets would cause rates to increase, quite significantly in the case of a DWI/DUI.
Conversely, getting married, buying a home or improving your credit rating can cause the cost of F150 insurance to drop even more with age.
What is the cheapest Ford F-150 insurance?
The Ford F-150 with the cheapest insurance cost is the XL Super Cab 4WD model with the 6 1/2 or 8 feet bed. This stands to reason, as the XL model is the cheapest trim level with a base MSRP of $42,995.
Adding 4-wheel drive does increase the cost, but when historical insurance loss data is factored in, the 4-wheel drive models of the F150 generally have lower property damage and bodily injury liability claims than 2-wheel drive models. This results in more favorable insurance rates when purchasing the 4WD option.
The table below breaks out average Ford F-150 car insurance rates by trim level for the 2023 model year.

Does a used F-150 cost less to insure?
Absolutely. As a vehicle gets older, it depreciates in value and is worth less (classic cars excluded). A brand new 2023 Ford F-150 averages around $1,794 per year to insure, while a model that is 8 or 9 years old would cost around $260 less to insure for the same coverages.
The difference in cost is primarily due to the reduced payout an insurance company would be required to pay if the vehicle is totaled and the loss is covered on the policy. Thankfully, vehicles are not damaged beyond repair very often, so the $260 savings is fairly minor considering the claim payout difference could exceed $50,000 or more.
The table below demonstrates how average Ford F150 insurance cost decreases as the age of your truck increases. At some point, drivers have to weigh the benefit of having full coverage with the savings provided by only insuring for liability only. This table assumes full coverage for all model years.
|Model Year and Vehicle||Driver Age 20||Driver Age 40||Driver Age 60|
|2023 Ford F150||$3,544||$1,794||$1,602|
|2022 Ford F150||$3,176||$1,600||$1,430|

|2018 Ford F150||$2,906||$1,450||$1,304|
|2017 Ford F150||$2,784||$1,392||$1,250|

|2013 Ford F150||$2,412||$1,210||$1,084|
As new safety features like crash avoidance braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane keep assist are introduced and adopted into new models, insurance rates can actually end up being lower for new models.
Any technology that lowers the frequency or severity of liability or physical damage claims translates into better insurance rates. For the Ford F150, the 2015 model year redesign included 31 new safety innovations. The effect on insurance rates can be seen the following year, when insurance rates actually dropped for the 2016 model year.
As mentioned earlier, there comes a day when you have to make the decision to remove full coverage on your truck and just pay for liability insurance only. The table below shows average insurance cost for older F-150 model years, breaking out full coverage insurance cost from liability-only cost.
